Back on track: Continued economic growth is anticipated to drive industry demand



Abstract

Railroad Car Rental & Leasing

Over the past five years, the Railroad Car Rental and Leasing industry has gone through a boom. As the economy recovered, industrial, construction and trade activity began to improve, bolstering demand for raw materials and commodities. Consequently, rail freight volumes climbed and demand for railcars reemerged. In particular, the boom in US shale oil production overwhelmed the existing oil pipelines, with railroads picking up the slack. AConsequently, in the five years to 2016, industry revenue is expected to rise. In the five years to 2021, industry revenue is forecast to continue to increase. Continued economic growth and increasing shale oil and gas production are anticipated to continue driving demand for railcar leases. Growing industrial production and construction activity will push up commodity and raw-material freight volumes on railroads, while climbing international trade will drive demand for flatcar leases because they transport intermodal containers that shipping companies use.

Companies operating in this industry rent or lease railroad cars to customers who move freight across railroads. Renting or leasing railcars enables downstream customers to avoid incurring the capital costs of purchasing a railcar from a manufacturer.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
