Automatic platform screen doors are motorized glass door systems installed at train stations and metro stations to prevent passengers from falling onto train tracks. They span the full height of the platform and automatically open and close in synchronization with train doors to isolate the areas behind the yellow strip on safety lines. The automatic platform screen doors ensure safety of passengers by restricting their access to tracks when trains arrive or depart. They also control climate inside stations and reduce noise levels around platforms. With rapid urbanization and rising metro rail infrastructure projects globally, the demand for automatic platform screen doors is growing steadily.
The global Automatic Platform Screen Doors Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 13,217.13 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
