EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1. The UK market for rail safety equipment and services has fluctuated during the review period. This has largely been attributable to uncertainty in the industry regarding changes to industry structure. However, the market has witnessed continued growth in value terms during the latter stages of the review period. Indeed, an estimated increase of 9 percent occurred in 2001 to reach a value of £5.98 billion (€9.63 billion).
2. In 2001 rail safety equipment and services represented the largest proportion of the market, accounting for 76 percent of the total market value, which equated to a value of £4.53 billion (€7.29 billion). Rail safety maintenance services accounted for the remaining 24 percent of the market value.
3. MSI has identified a number of factors which have affected demand for rail safety equipment and services. These include:
· investment
· franchise renewal
· trespass and vandalism
· standards
· accidents
- signals passed at danger
- rail buckling
- derailments
· industry targets
· economy
· government policies
4. MSI forecast continual growth in the UK market for rail safety equipment and services until 2005. A marginal decline is forecast in 2006 due to an expected decline in new build rolling stock during this year as rolling stock replacement targets are met.
5. The following diagram illustrates trends and developments in the UK market for rail safety equipment and services between 1997 and 2006.
