Published: Fri Feb 22 2019

Closed platform screen doors primarily find applications in subway or train stations worldwide, by separating the platform from the train. They are relatively new to most train transport systems around the globe and many of these closed platform screen door installations have also been customized and retrofitted to existing infrastructure. Operators for metros and other train transport systems prefer closed platform screen doors owing to growing preference for automated systems that offer better efficiency and reliability.

Large urban areas, with ever growing population bases in particular, constantly need expansion of public transport capacities, and are highly likely to be faced with very high flow of passengers.

Closed Platform Screen Doors: Market Dynamics

Increasing concerns over safety of commuters who accidentally or intentionally fall off the platform onto the lower track area, is the major driving factor behind the growth of the closed platform screen doors market worldwide.

Increasing preference for automation, climate control, enhanced security, cost efficiency, minimized service disruption, prevention of litter on tracks thereby reducing fire hazards, improving sound quality of announcements made in stations, reduction or elimination of wind from fast moving trains which can cause people to lose their balance, along with increased aesthetic appeal are also crucial factors that are driving the demand for closed platform screen doors.

Innovations such as automated control for individual doors, separate from every other door in the station, based on data from sensors which assess train distance and operation of train doors, are also expected to boost market growth owing to additional safety.

Prohibitive costs for installation and retrofitting operations of closed platform screen doors to match the spacing of platform doors to train doors is expected to be the major constraining factor that will limit the growth of the  closed platform screen doors market. Closed platform screen doors also pose the risk of the commuter getting trapped between the door and the train. In addition, the relative affordability of half-height platform screen doors, or platform gates are also expected to challenge the expansion of closed platform screen doors market players.
