Global market outlook of rolling stock

The global rolling stock market research predicts the market to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% by 2020. The growing rail supply market is creating huge investment opportunities in the rail infrastructure projects and its aftermarket capabilities. Governments in many developing countries are heavily investing in the rail infrastructure related projects like electrifying of tracks, signaling, and urban transit systems, which has propelled the growth of the rolling stock market. Factors such as enhancements to the existing rail management system, improvement of rail tracks and building new lanes, technological development of rail control and signaling services, and the manufacture of high-speed trains and wagons are expected to increase the demand for rolling stock over the next four years.

Owing to the increasing population and rapid urbanization, several countries are expanding their high-speed rail (HSR) networks. The market in developed nations is expected to witness rapid conversion of rail lines to high-speed train lines in the coming years, which will subsequently lead to the increased demand for traction transformers. Moreover, increased mobility has surged the need for efficient public transport systems, leading to more improvements in the rail transit systems and increase in demand for passenger rail vehicles.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the rolling stock market

  • Rapid transit vehicles
  • Railroad cars
  • Locomotive

The rapid transit vehicles segment will continue to dominate the market during the forecast period and is expected to occupy almost 38% of the overall rolling stock market share. The rapid transit vehicles include high-speed trains (HST), light rail vehicles (LRV), electric multiple unit (EMU), diesel multiple units (DMU), and metro vehicles. The growing demand for high-speed trains in Asia and the Middle Eastern region has surged the demand for rapid transit vehicles. The growing demand for urban rail transit systems and rising investments in LRV and electrifying rail tracks will fuel the growth of this segment in the coming years.

  • MEA

Europe will be the highest revenue-generating region in the market and is expected to occupy more than 46% of the total market share by 2020. Much of this region’s growth can be attributed to the recovery of some of the Eurozone's worst hit crisis economies, including France, Germany, and Italy which have strong manufacturing bases for rolling stock vendors. The surge in the number of rail infrastructure projects will increase the demand for rolling stock and their components during the forecast period.
