Urbanization Will Keep High Demand for the Rolling Stocks

The scope of this rail rolling stock research report provides detailed market segment data on the railway rolling stock manufacturing industry, which includes trainsets, locomotives, and wagons.

Rise in industrial production, government funding, implementation of strong emission and safety standards, and renewed focus on passenger rail infrastructure are expected to encourage demand.

Chinese suppliers are winning projects outside of China, while a bevy of smaller competitors are vying for pieces of each rail transport project, making for a crowded and competitive field.  The large market share of Chinese manufacturers is leading to a strong focus on international markets and creating price pressure on the global suppliers, resulting in the consolidation of the railway industry.

Due to political uncertainties, fluctuating commodity prices have led to a forecast of single-digit growth for the rolling stock market.  Tremendous potential exists for systems that meet the demand for urbanization, liberalization, and standards set by global rail operators.

The innovation in Big Data and analytics is substantially leading to suppliers expanding their business models and incorporating more responsibilities from rail operators and infrastructure owners in the product portfolio.  It will offer new opportunities for traditional suppliers provided they adapt to the current business models successfully.
