Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Railway Infrastructure Spending in China 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Railway Infrastructure Spending in China: China Communications Construction, China Railway Construction, China Railway Group and China State Construction Engineering

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: China Railway Signal & Communication and Dongfang Electric

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “To attract private investment in railway infrastructure, the government liberalized rail freight prices, stimulating the growth of railway spending and the demand for rail transportation in the country. In April 2014, the NDRC approved liberalization of freight railway fees based on the market demand, which was earlier controlled solely by the government. In December 2014, the government deregulated the price control on rail cargo, railway parcel shipping, and passenger fares. Such initiatives by the government will create demand for a new and expanded railway network, triggering the growth of railway infrastructure spending in the less-developed regions of China.”

According to the report, increased government initiatives toward developing infrastructure and boosting investment opportunities in the railway infrastructure will trigger market growth. In October 2014, the government launched the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank to promote investments in infrastructure development in China and other Asian countries. As the government is burdened by high debts in the infrastructure sector, it is encouraging private investment in energy and transport infrastructure through the BOT model. In this, a public entity delegates the construction project, which includes design, construction, finance, and operation of a particular facility to a private firm.

Further, the report states that the weak legal and regulatory framework of China hinders the market's growth.
