Demand for Cost-effectiveness and Comfort to Remain Main Diving Factors of Train Seat Materials Market

Published On : Apr 19, 2021

With increasing investments for the development of infrastructure across several countries, the railway segment is also anticipated to witness a boom over the coming years. New trains, metros, high speed rails, and rail coaches are being introduced in many countries, ultimately expected to benefit the market for train seat materials over the coming years. The need to increase comfort and enhance user experience, along with cutting down on travel time, is compelling governments to increasingly invest in their railway networks, thereby increasing demand for seats, seat covers, and related materials.

The global train seat materials market is projected to expand at a CAGR of around 4.5% over the forecast period of 2021-2031.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • The fabric segment is expected to remain prominent owing to easy availability, cost-effectiveness, and easy processing.
  • High speed trains are anticipated to remain one of the fastest-growing segments for the consumption of train seat materials, due to massive investments done across various nations for the establishment of these systems. 
  • Recliner seats are expected to remain one of the key type for train seat materials, since recliner seats consume more seat cover and foam material for their production.
  • East Asia is estimated to remain one of the fastest-growing regions on the back of strengthening of suburban transit railway routes in Japan and South Korea, along with long distance railway network being developed by Mainland China to Russia, North Korea, and Tibet.

“Demand for train seat materials is projected to witness strong growth during the forecast period owing to the introduction of various new trains, suburban metros, mass rapid transit systems, high speed rails, and several new coaches in existing fleets,” says a Persistence Market Research analyst.
