Passenger coaches are expected to witness the fastest growth in the passenger transportation segment of the global rolling stock market during the forecast period

The availability of robust infrastructure for both, urban and intercity transport for mass transit in various countries especially in Asian countries is the major factor driving the adoption of railways for passenger transportation. Globally, there has been an increase in the ridership of passenger trains which is likely to propel the demand for passenger coaches globally. Apart from this, passengers prefer railway transportation to cover remote distances as well, owing to the wide connectivity of railway networks. Therefore, the demand for passenger coaches is growing at a steady pace globally. Urbanization is also another major driver of the growth of passenger transportation by railways. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2020, the urban population is projected to account for 60% of the global population by 2030. Hence, increasing urbanization is expected to further boost the market for passenger transportation in the coming years. Therefore, the demand for passenger coaches is likely to grow at the fastest rate in the passenger transportation segment during the forecast period globally.

In the fiscal year 2021-22, till August 2021, freight transportation accounted for a share of 79.1%of the total revenue generated by the Indian Railways. Hence, it is expected that the demand for freight transportation is likely to grow at a rapid pace in the coming years globally.

Asia Oceania is projected to hold the largest share by 2027.

Asia Oceania is expected to account for the largest market share in terms of volume by 2027. Significant urbanization coupled with significant volumes of goods transported through rail, increased demand for the metro rail network, and dedicated railway freight corridors are the factors driving the demand for rolling stocks in this region. Apart from this, owing to increased production, domestic demand, capacity expansions by rolling stock manufacturers and larger order intake volume, the region dominates this market globally. This increase in production helps to cope with the rising demand for rail transportation and concerns related to fuel-efficiency norms and regulations. In addition to domestic markets, there is an increase in demand from international markets. For example, in February 2021, CRRC Corporation Limited won a supply contract of supplying 10 diesel locomotives to KiwiRail of New Zealand, and the company won a supply contract of supplying 100 trams to Bucharest Town Hall of Romania in the same year. Moreover, the region comprises some of the fastest-growing economies in the world including China and India, offering opportunities for rolling stock manufacturers. Governments in these countries have recognized the growth potential of the rolling stock market.
