Railway services market
The rail services market is a growing trend in the railway transportation sector with a growth rate of% 3,7 per year.
As a result of the increasing number of transport systems requiring maintenance and the availability of the railway services market and the technical development of the train systems (IT, additional comfort systems installed on trains), rail services between 2017-2019 are expected to represent more than the market's 30. The three regions are Europe (% 30), North America (% 34) and Asia Pacific (% 14).

The largest segment in the accessible service market is the supply of spare parts, including accident and repair and maintenance, with a share of% 66, including preventive and corrective maintenance. This market segment, which is closely linked to the growing need for maintenance systems, is entirely geared towards train manufacturers and product suppliers.
Train and infrastructure maintenance, one of the fastest growing segments of the railway services market; represents the% 27 of accessible services market. Public transportation operators, especially railway operators, provided companies with every stage from train manufacturing to operation and maintenance throughout the history. Today, operators focus on their main activities and provide maintenance services from outside. The cost issue is one of these factors. With the cost of maintenance corresponding to the 20-30 of the total cost of ownership, more and more operators have begun to consider the-total cost of ownership ab, including maintenance, while purchasing trains or infrastructure.

Alstom's predictive maintenance solution: HealthHub
Predictive maintenance is based on methods and tools designed to help determine the condition of the equipment in use in order to determine when failures occur and to estimate when maintenance tasks are to be performed.
Predictive maintenance, monitoring and data collection (vibration analysis, oil analysis, temperature pressure, voltage, etc.), providing accurate information at the right time to ensure proper maintenance of maintenance operations and thus prevent unexpected breakdown of equipment.
Increased storage capacity, improved processor performance, smaller sensors and lower costs have been introduced through increasingly powerful computers. This global trend facilitated data communication, sharing and analysis by allowing a growth in data volume.
Alstom's predictive maintenance solution HealthHub; With monitoring systems, it is possible to automatically determine the status of railway vehicles, infrastructure and signaling, and to identify any components that need to be repaired or replaced, as well as their modified dates. HealthHub therefore supports the stop pit stop Health approach; that is, when the train arrives, everything is ready, the right number of material is brought in at the right time, and the maintenance personnel move quickly, thus increasing the availability of the fleet.
