Railroad car market: Set to grow at the highest CAGR market, in terms of value, during forecasted period

The report segments the global rail infrastructure market on the basis of type into the railroad, rapid transit, and locomotive. Locomotives are traditionally used to haul freight and passenger wagons for long distance main line transport. However, vehicles such as metros, light rail vehicles, and subways are being used for intra-city as well as intercity transportation. The growth of this market can be attributed to factors such as the growing global population, increasing urbanization, rising need for cleaner and faster modes of transportation, and economic growth.

Asia-Pacific: Fastest-growing' market, in terms of value, for rolling stock and its infrastructure

Asia-Oceania comprises emerging and developing economies such as India, China, Japan, and Korea, and is experiencing a considerable growth in population. The rolling stock industry is witnessing growing demand after a weak performance in 2008, following the global recession. Global OEMs are investing in this region, following new market opportunities. Increasing urbanization, reduction of road congestion, and technological advancements in rolling stocks are driving the growth of the rolling stock infrastructure industry in Asia-Pacific.
