Subways/subways are expected to be the fastest growing segment of the global rolling stock market

Increasing urbanization and investments for the development of urban transport systems by governments are the main drivers for the growth of rapid transit systems globally. Subways/subways are urban public transport used for intra-city travel with limited passenger capacity. These trains operate at much higher frequencies and at higher average speeds than light rail/tram systems. This makes them very efficient, as the system is free from interference with road traffic. Subways are functional in countries such as Indiathe United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, South Africa, Australiaand France. China, with the longest metro track, in terms of length, is considered the largest metro market in the world. Thus, metros are expected to experience the fastest growth in the coming years globally.

Passenger coaches are expected to witness the fastest growing passenger transportation segment of the global rolling stock market over the forecast period

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