The global rolling stock market size is projected to reach USD 75,118.9 million by the year 2025, advancing at a CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period, as per a report by Grand View Research, Inc. The major drivers influencing the adoption of rolling stock among end-users such as passenger, goods, and animal transportation include reduced traffic, cost efficiency, and reliability. Major benefits offered by rolling stock includes minimal breakdowns and accidents, when compared to other means of transport, which are driving their demand in the industry. Additionally, there has been an explosive growth in the global railways network, with the introduction of advanced offerings such as high-speed and maglev trains, which has led to positive developments in the rolling stock market.
Rolling stock is a generic term in the railroad sector, which includes locomotives, flat cars, and freight cars, among other vehicles utilizing steel wheels on railroad tracks. It is commonly used for transportation of goods, such as passengers, agricultural products, conventional fuels, construction materials, heavy machinery, and so on. The rail infrastructure of countries such as India is operated by governments, whereas, in developed countries such as the U.S. and Germany, the infrastructure is operated by either private entities or governments. Various companies around the globe such as CRRC Corporation Limited, Bombardier Transportation, and Trinity Rail, among others, are implementing the turbocharger technology in locomotives used for public transport applications. This has further boosted the market growth. Western European economies, along with advanced nations such as China, Japan, and the US, have dense railway networks to cater to the large population base, which has subsequently increased the demand for rolling stock in these regions.
The rolling stock market is broadly segmented on the basis of product (locomotive, rapid transit vehicle, and wagon); type (diesel or electric); and train type (rail freight or passenger rail). Rapid transit vehicles utilize electricity for operation and consume one-fifth of the energy per passenger kilometer, in comparison to road-based transport systems. Government as well as private initiatives to improve railway infrastructure for optimal convenience in transportation are expected to aid the industry advancement. Major players such as CRRC Corporation Limited, Bombardier Transportation, Alstom Transport, GE Transportation, Trinity Rail Group, LLC, Siemens Mobility, Stadler Rail AG, Hitachi Rail Systems, The Greenbrier Co, and Hyundai Rotem are striving for innovative offerings and geographical expansion in order to dominate the market.
