Infrastructure plays a vital role in the economic development of a country. Most matured economies allocate a significant portion of their annual budget for refurbishing and upgrading infrastructure. Similarly, developing countries are also racing for building up their infrastructure by funding through fiscal coffers and lending. It is believed that due to growing population and urbanisation there is significant pressure on infrastructure and multi-billion infrastructure projects have been announced across the world. The US government plans to spend around $1 trillion on infrastructure over the next ten years.

Railways is a vital component of the infrastructure industry and currently going through significant overhauls across the world. Over the past few years, we saw some rail producers complaining about the limited growth and cost pressures and started to offload their rail units. Longs steel producers usually prefer to produce sections and other construction products due to better demand fundamentals. Most of the recently added rail capacity was in China due to domestic demand and non-market forces. Iran also entered the rail market with Esfahan Steel added 400,000 tonnes/year rail capacity to its portfolio in 2016.

Indeed, limited demand growth has been one of the culprits deterring new entrants or new capacity additions. Demand and supply also remained range-bound over the past few years. However, some growth pockets across the world which are going to underpin demand over the next decade have been identified. High-speed rail, electrification and new rails projects would be some of the fundamental drivers increasing demand for rails.

The Chinese initiative to improve connectivity through One Belt One Road (OBOR) would have a phenomenal impact on the rail industry. A large number of rail projects are planned under the OBOR initiative across Asia and Africa. The aim is to connect China with major trading regions including Europe. The train transport has already started between China and Europe where first Chinese freight train arrived in the UK in January 2017 while the first ever direct train from London to China full of goods completed its journey in April 2017. More recently, in November 2017, a train with 41 containers reached Xi'an Port in China from Finland's Kouvola. It was the first Central European train between China and the Nordic countries. The cargo included electromechanical equipment and various commodities. Dozens of European cities have now direct rail links with China.
