AI related deals in the railway industry increased in H1 2021

We have analysed the latest deals using data from GlobalData.

By Emil Filipov

Artificial intelligence (AI) related deals made up 4.3% of all deals announced in the railway equipment supply, product and services sector in the first six months of 2021.

This represents an increase from the figure of 3.3% in the last six months of 2020 and a decrease from 12.3% in the first six months of 2020.

GlobalData’s deals database looks at mergers, acquisitions and venture capital and private equity investments taking place daily between thousands of companies across the world.

In the first six months of 2021, the overall number of announced deals in the railway equipment supply, product and services sector NA by 5.7%, from the same period in 2020.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information on investments to see which industries are best placed to deal with any issues they may encounter.

These themes, of which AI is one, are best thought of as "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night", and by tracking them, it becomes possible to ascertain which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which ones have some work to do.
