Key Highlights

  • The passenger rail sector consists of all passenger transport by 'heavy rail' services, including international, inter-city, regional, and suburban trains (Commuter trains in US terminology are included). However, light rail, tram/streetcar, Metro/Subway, and similar trains are not included.
  • The global passenger rail sector had total revenues of $246,947.1bn in 2016, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.3% between 2012 and 2016.
  • Sector consumption volume increased with a CAGR of 3% between 2012 and 2016, to reach a total of 3,844,791.2 million PKM in 2016.
  • Most of the developed passenger rail sectors worldwide have been either mature or facing increased competition from other modes of transport such as air travel, as seen in Europe and Japan, or having limited demand, incurring losses, which is the case in the US sector. Only a few sectors have experienced surging growth such as the Chinese and the Indian sectors, because of continuing technological improvement of their infrastructure. Furthermore, there remains a much higher price of substitutes that urges price sensitive consumers to opt for rail services.
  • Infrastructure is critical to the rail network and the vast size of networks means it is lucrative business. Some companies have circumvented laws prohibiting train operators also operating infrastructure by setting up dedicated subsidiaries.
  • Rolling stick manufacture has seen competition intensify markedly in recent years, spurring a wave of consolidation as scale becomes critical to survival.
