Rail Freight Market: Key Drivers and Challenges

The low cost of rail freight is notably driving the rail freight market growth, although factors such as increasing maintenance expenses may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the rail freight industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Rail Freight Market Driver

One of the key factors driving the global rail freight market growth is the low cost of rail freight. The transportation cost of goods to far-off places through airfreight is higher than rail freight. Fuel surcharges, transportation costs, labor and handling expenses, customs brokerage, and landing charges are some of the major components of airfreight costs. In addition, the rising prices of fuel in APAC countries such as India have been adding to the total cost of transportation of goods, as the fuel consumption is roughly proportional to the distance flown and the weight of aircraft. Such factors are resulting in the high demand for rail freight services among shippers, which is expected to positively impact the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Key Rail Freight Market Challenge

One of the key challenges to the global rail freight market growth is the increasing maintenance expenses. The non-competitive pricing of rail freight and rapid increase in the maintenance cost of rail infrastructure is expected to negatively impact the growth of the market in focus during the forecast period. The total cost consists of maintenance and upkeeping trains, stations, loading docks, and signaling systems which is approximately 25%-30% of the total operating cost of rail freight. Moreover, the rail freight charges have not increased in proportion to the increase in maintenance expenses, as a result, several companies are incurring losses. Therefore, the increase in maintenance expenses of rail freight services can impede the global rail freight market growth during the forecast period.

This rail freight market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.
