Negligible growth is noticed with an estimated market size of
worldwide Rail Rolling Stock industry increased from $64.90
Billion in 2016 to $64.97 Billion in 2017.
Faster, more reliable and flexible trains will be able to
increase the reliability and cost-competitiveness of this market segment. IT
systems that enable buying and selling of capacity in wagons and a reliable
door to door track and trace of loading units and goods and real time information
of the actual and forecasted train position will further attract the customer
The performance of the vehicles needs to be improved.
Power trains will consume less energy, components will become lighter,
standardization of regenerative braking and recuperation of kinetic energy. New
vehicles will be built to be recyclable and innovative materials will be used.
The rate of growth in the supplier market has slowed in
last few years and estimated to grow at 2% a year up to 2022. Due to slow market
growth in this segment, very few or no investments would be made towards new
improvements. In addition, political uncertainties and change in governments in
