The global railway industry is heavy on capital as investments have to be made on a regular basis to replace or update rolling stock, reports Global Industry Analysts. Outdated fleets need to be replaced to better cater for passenger comfort and increasing numbers of passengers. Signaling equipment must also be brought up-to-date to boost network capacity and enhance rail travel safety.

 

Growth in the world rail supply market is fuelled by the need to service and renew infrastructure and signaling equipment. Other factors driving the global passenger railcar market include economic growth, increased awareness regarding environmental issues, and the need to cut down on road traffic.
