SAN FRANCISCO, March 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The global Platform Screen Doors (PSD) Market has demonstrated positive growth over the past seven years. The platform screen doors are fixed or sliding doors that are generally used in a subway or a Light Rail Transit (LRT) to cut off the railway from the platform when an electric train stops at a designated station. These doors on the activation of ATO (Automatic Train Operation) system make a signal when an electric train is about to arrive or stop at a designated station.
Owing to the growing need for maintaining high public transport standards, particularly in the areas of security, safety, reliability, and comfort. There is a surging demand for generously sized and flexible platform entrance, optimized passenger flows at peak hours of the day and customer-specific passenger transport solutions.
The physical barrier between the track and the platform has several consequential benefits. Sliding doors and fixed doors are installed at all the required places on the platform.

Over the past year, there has been several incidences of falls onto the tracks and has affected approximately 3000 people in Hong Kong alone. To combat such risks, public transportation system managers and manufacturers are examining and analyzing the evacuation procedures and are carrying out demonstration tests and simulations to improve the prevailing manufacturing pitfalls.
Based on product type, the market has been categorized into full-closed, semi-closed, and half height type. Metro and other transportation have been identified as the key segmentation of the application type. Half-height platform gates are affordable to install than full-height screen gates, as the later requires more metallic framework for support. As a result of which, there are half-height gates are becoming popular among some railway operators prefer such an option to enhance safety at railway platforms and, simultaneously, making it economical and non-air-conditioned train stations naturally ventilated. However, these gates are less effective than full platform screen doors in preventing accidents and suicides.
Automatic platform gates or half-height platform screen doors or platform edge doors as referred to by some manufacturers are chest-height sliding gates, placed at the edge of a railway platform to restrict passengers from falling off the edge onto the tracks. Similar to full-height screen doors, these slide open or close automatically without any human control interference with the train doors.
