Nations with little or no HSR infrastructure, such as the United States, are closely weighing the benefits of HSR adoption and the initial and long-term financial commitments. Much of the debate is centered around the types of HSR infrastructure to implement. Traditionalists of HSR manufacturing advocate a wheels-on-rail system while futurists prefer the more costly magnetic levitation (maglev) system.
This SBI Energy report analyzes the market opportunities that global HSR manufacturers are eager to embrace through the next decade. We examine the critical trends driving HSR growth by region and forecast the value of this growth by each of the manufactured HSR components. Finally, we look at the socioeconomic and consumer-based trends affecting the HSR industry, such as the development of next-generation HSR products, safety issues, and long-term effects of HSR on a transportation economy.
