Synopsis

Essential resource for top-line data and analysis covering the United States rail freight market. Includes market size data, textual and graphical analysis of market growth trends, leading companies and macroeconomic information.

Key Findings

- The rail freight sector is defined as consisting of revenues generated from freight transportation by rail.
- The US rail freight sector had total revenues of $57.3bn in 2016, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -1.7% between 2012 and 2016.
- Sector consumption volumes declined with a CARC of -1.9% between 2012-2016, to reach a total of 2,314.3 billion FTK in 2016.
- Although the Obama administration introduced a series of measures that made coal increasingly unattractive in the US, incumbent US President Donald Trump has in his first couple of months in office undone many of these regulations, including the ‘Office of Surface Mining’s Stream Protection Rule’ which protected waterways from waste from coal mines. Such acts are likely to boost coal demand in the US again and as a consequence will boost the rail freight sector as well. This is one of the reasons why the US rail freight sector is expected to bounce back to growth in the coming years.
