Interoperability in Pan-European Context Driving Market Growth

The strategic insight provides an outlook of growth opportunities in the Eastern European rail market, primarily covering Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, and Ukraine. Secondary and primary research was conducted, including interviews with suppliers, regulation authorities, and distributors. The study discusses key trends, market drivers, opportunities, market size, and forecast of rolling stock deliveries for the mainline, light rail, and metro segments. It also highlights competitive factors, competitor market shares, product portfolio, and capabilities for this region. Key conclusions and a future outlook of the market have been provided. The base year is 2012; the forecast period is through 2020.

Executive Summary - Key Findings

Between 2012 and 2020, the region will possess an approximately € billion worth opportunity for rail infrastructure development projects, with up to % of investment directed toward the upgrading of lines.

-Severe shortage of fleet is causing a bottleneck; consequently, passenger volumes have suffered in Poland, Ukraine, and Romania.

-There are approximately locomotives in active service, However, the number has decreased significantly over the last decade. Electric locomotives represent approximately % of the total locomotives in every country of the region.

-The decline of passengers and freight traffic has resulted in a decline over the past decade in the number of wagons and passenger coaches. Even with new deliveries, the total number of wagons and coaches in active service is expected to decrease by % and %, respectively.

-With a combined total of km of track length already electrified, Czech Republic and Ukraine account for % of growth of electrified lines in the previous decade.
Although the European signalling systems market is highly monopolized, the Eastern European rail signalling market has a strong presence of smaller local companies, such as as Funkwerk and Scheidt & Bachmann, Kombud Radom, AŽD Praha, and GANZ Trans Electro.
