Report Overview

The rolling stock market is growing owing to the expanding investments in railway transportation on account of the increasing demand for passenger mobility along with electrification of railway systems, especially in fast developing major economies like China and India.

Rolling Stock Market- Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

The rolling stock market was worth USD 54 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 73 billion by the year 2028. The expanding investments in railway transportation owing to the increasing demand for passenger mobility is significantly influencing the growth of the rolling stock market. Moreover, the electrification of the railway system especially in emerging economies such as China, India, Japan, etc., also acts as a major driving factor for market growth.

Rolling Stock Market

Rolling Stock- Overview

The term “rolling stock” is an umbrella term that is used to denote railway vehicles that run on railway tracks. It includes passenger cars, locomotives, freight cars, flat cars, and other steel wheels. Rolling stock is used as an inventory and is considered a liquid asset since it can be sold to a buyer without much delay. While the other fixed stock or infrastructure is a collective term used for railway infrastructure, which includes tracks, stations, signals, other buildings, etc.

Rolling Stock Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Demand for Convenient Public Transport

Railways are the most preferred type of public transportation since train travel is hassle-free, convenient, as well as economical for both short and long journeys. It also proves to be economical for the country as well since the cost per passenger is very low compared to other types of transportation. Furthermore, railways have a very diverse interconnected network of trains that allows the passengers to travel to any destination within the country. Due to these advantages, the investment in railways is rising, further propelling the growth of the rolling stock market.

Expanding Goods Output and Production

The expanding goods production and flourishing import and export activities within the nation’s boundaries are anticipated to fuel the demand for the rolling stock market as well. The shipping of cargo by rail transport proves to be faster and more reliable as well as least affected by climatic conditions. It also offers higher speed for long distances, which proves to be favorable for non-durable and semi-durable goods. Furthermore, cargo shipping through rail transport is also cheaper compared to other modes of transport.

Restraints

High Initial Capital Investment

The procurement of rolling stock products and components require high investment and therefore will need financial assistance from local as well as central government. This is why the development of the railway system and other public transportation infrastructure in a country is usually concentrated among public authorities only. This high initial investment often impedes countries, especially middle and lower-income economies, from spending on new rail vehicles, which is acting as a major restraint for the growth of the rolling stock market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Rolling Stock Market

The entire automotive industry, including the rolling stock market, was negatively impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. Almost all the major rolling stock manufacturers suspended their production activities in the light of increasing COVID-19 infection rates and the need to implement social distancing norms. Furthermore, the railway infrastructure development investment and activities were all halted during the pandemic period due to the rising focus on healthcare infrastructure. All these factors significantly hindered the growth of the rolling stock market.

Rolling Stock Market - By Component

Based on the component, the rolling stock market is segmented into train control systems, passenger information systems, pantographs, brakes, air conditioning systems, axles, auxiliary power systems, wheelsets, gearboxes, and traction motors. The traction motor segment accounts for the largest market share as they are mainly used for propulsion of the rolling stock and to make rotation torque on a machine. This component is also useful in increasing the seating capacity of the rolling stock and reducing friction which makes rolling easy.

Rolling Stock Market - By Locomotive Technology

Based on locomotive technology, the rolling stock market is segmented into conventional locomotives, turbocharged locomotives, and maglev. The turbocharged locomotives segment holds the largest market. This is because of the prominent use of diesel engines to power trains. A turbocharger is used to generate more horsepower from the locomotive’s diesel engine. The maglev also covers a substantial market share due to its increasing use in various emerging countries, mainly Japan, South Korea, and China.

Rolling Stock Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the rolling stock market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. Europe holds the largest share in the rolling stock market owing to the high government and private spending on public mobility infrastructure development. Furthermore, the high concentration of leading rolling stock markets such as Skoda Transportation, Bombardier, Siemens Mobility, Alstom, etc., also plays a crucial role in proliferating the market growth in the forecast period. Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to witness a high growth rate during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape
