This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Rolling Stock Market is accounted for $51.60 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $79.79 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. Rising demand for energy-efficient transport and increasing stipulation for comfort and safety are the major factors propelling the market growth. However, refurbishment of existing rolling stock and requirement of high R&D investments are hampering the market growth.

Rolling stock term is used in railway transportation industry, which refers any vehicle that can move on rail-road. It includes powered vehicles such as locomotives and unpowered vehicles such as freight wagons, passenger coaches, and more. They operate automatically and are monitored or controlled from the control station. Automated trains or the driverless trains, which do not involve a driver to carry out its operations or working. Further, in case of any obstacle incurred in the route, a message is sent to operational control centre and to the attendant on the train, to stop the train.

Based on product type, the locomotive segment is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing focusing on developing technologically advanced solutions on account of the rising concerns about transmission losses, component weight, and environmental concerns. Due to increasingly stringent fuel efficiency norms in North America and Europe, the diesel engine features the turbocharged technology which provides a 50% increase in engine power without additional increase in fuel cost as power is generated by the exhaust gas from the engine. The rolling stock industry is gradually shifting towards diesel-electric and electric locomotives.

By geography, Asia Pacific is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period due to the large-scale adoption of rail vehicles for transporting passengers and goods. Moreover, the growth of the regional market can also be attributed to the increase in investments in metro and electric trains in countries such as China, India, and Japan. With these three countries also topping the list of passenger-kilometre per year, in addition to those major manufacturers of rolling stock market are headquartered in this region.
