Global Rail Transportation Industry

Demand for rail transportation declined because of the economic recession. Freight volumes plummeted by as much as 30%, with the US and the EU particularly badly hit.

State stimulus packages and rescue plans launched in a bid to stimulate economic recovery encompassed initiatives for the transportation sector. Many of these packages are helping projects led by public sector rail operators, who rely on the government for funding.

Railway Transport Market Outlook

A rapid increase in global population, along with urbanisation, and economic development are all factors fuelling growth in the global railway transport sector.

Due to environmental awareness and cost concerns, the demand for higher energy efficiency in the transport sector and for green transportation technology continues to benefit the global rail transportation sector. These concerns will continue to fuel demand for rolling stock, systems and services. The railway transport sector is also reliant on ongoing investments to replace and update existing rolling stock.
