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 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
