Railcar Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Railcar Manufacturing

The Railcar manufacturing industry has chugged along in the past five years, with industry revenue growing during the period. Although the recession forced the industry to a stop, with declines in industrial production and total trade value leading to greatly decreased freight transportation levels, as the economy began to recover, so did industry revenue. The industry is expected to remain on track in the next five years, with increasing industrial production and higher total trade value leading to strong demand for trail transportation. As freight volumes increase, railroad companies will likely demand higher quantities of railcars to both expand and maintain their fleets.

This industry manufactures railcars for passenger, freight and military use. These railcars include gondolas, tank cars, flatcars, refrigerator cars, covered hoppers and intermodal cars.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
