The global transportation services industry is expected to witness modest growth and reach an estimated US $2,735 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 2.5% over the next five years. Growth is expected to be driven by government infrastructure investments, improved economic conditions, rise in industrial production, and mining activities.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the Global Transportation Services industry and presents its findings in “Global Transportation Services Industry 2012–2017: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis.”

The global transportation services industry consists of revenues generated from freight transportation by road, rail, air, and marine modes. The industry is capital-intensive and demand is driven by macroeconomic trends in global imports and exports. The intensity of competition varies depending on the specific industry; the road transport sector for example, usually experiences the highest level of rivalry, while railways, as natural monopolies, suffer less from direct competition.

North America dominates this market and is forecast to witness the highest growth over the next five years. A strong economy is expected to fuel the demand for freight growth in Canada and other nations. Marine Freight transportation services are forecast to register the highest growth over the next five years.

Tightening infrastructure capacity and increased fuel prices, decline in import and export activity, slowdown of global trade, and vehicle regulations are key challenges for the industry. Resumption of growth in the worldwide merchandise trade is likely to create more demand for freight transportation services.
