    Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    The Railway Signaling System Manufacturing industry exhibits a moderate level of market share concentration. Overall, the top two players account for 43.8% of total industry revenue. For nearly 100 years, the US market has had a handful of manufacturers dominating; currently, the largest of these companies commands 25.6% of industry revenue. Production of large-scale signaling systems is normally relegated to one of these major companies because implementation requires hundreds or thousands of coordinated pieces of equipment. Large operators benefit from economies of scale for research and development, design and manufacture of this vast array of pieces, which is useful when bidding for government contracts and emphasizing cost savings.
