Other prominent vendors in the market are: AmstedMaxion, Astra Rail, Azovobshemash, Bradken, CJSC Transmashholding, Downer Rail, Faiveley Transport, GE Transportation, Hitachi Rail Europe, JSC Dneprovagonmash, Kambarka Engineering Works, Lohr Industrie, Metrowagonmash, Newag, OJSC Altaivagon, PESA Bydgoszcz, PKC Group, Progress Rail Services, Promtractor-Vagon CJSC, SCG Solutions, Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft, Sinara Transport Machines, Skoda Transportation, Socofer, Trinity Industries, Uralvagonzavod, Voith and Vossloh Group

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Growing urbanization and increased mobility have resulted in the soaring demand for passenger coaches in the urban rail market. Urban rail transit comprises various types of local rail systems that provide passenger services within or around urban areas. With the growing population shifting to urban areas, the demand for rail transportation services has increased. This will lead to an increase in the number of rail passenger carriers such as trams, light rail, monorail, and commuter rail services. The rise in the number of rail passenger carriers will in turn lead to increased demand for rolling stock components.”

According to the report, currently, the rail supply market includes rail infrastructure turnkey projects, rail signaling services, and rolling stock. The growth in the overall rail supply market exerts a positive impact on the rolling stock segment as they are correlated. Despite the economic slowdown in many European and Asian economies, where important rail industry value chain vendors operate, the global rail supply market grew steadily during 2012-2014. Europe dominates the global rail supply market, as the majority of the leading vendors operate and have manufacturing sites in countries like France, Germany, and the UK.

Further, the report states that high initial investment is hindering the market growth.
