Sleeper Pads Market Industry Outlook, Growth Prospects and Key Opportunities 2019-2029

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – Sleeper Pads Market: Introduction

Sleeper pads are customized resilient systems designed to improve the quality of the track by reducing track maintenance and to provide mitigation of vibrations by fixing elastic elements at bottom of the sleepers. Sleeper pads preserve the ballast under the tracks and improve stability. The lines having high axle loads and high speed rail lines as well as standard gauge lines can be equipped with sleeper pads. The installation of sleeper pads enables the train’s movement in safe and comfortable manner by reducing abrasion and friction. The sleeper pads can also be attached to sleepers at post production stage such as repairing and retrofitting. The ballast structure is commonly used for track bed. Constant loads causes ballast compression resulting into wear and breaking up of the rocks. These effects reduce the quality of the track geometry.

The installation of sleeper beds slow down this process by distribution of axle loads over number of sleepers, increasing the contact surface between surface and ballast, weakening the dynamic vibrations in the ballast. In the recent times, the improvements in train suspension system compelled to reduce extraneous vibrations and increase stability and ride comfort. This in turn is expected to drive the sleeper pads market during the forecast period.
