Key Highlights
  • The rail freight sector is defined as consisting of revenues generated from freight transportation by rail.
  • The global rail freight sector had total revenues of $188.7bn in 2016, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.2% between 2012 and 2016.
  • Sector consumption volume increased with a CAGR of 0.3% between 2012 and 2016, to reach a total of 10,131.8 billion FTK in 2016.
  • The Chinese government is currently supporting the OBOR project which seeks to increase connectivity between the Eurasian region with China, in order to boost trade and relations, by investments in infrastructure projects both home and abroad. In January 2017, the first Chinese freight train reached the UK after crossing eight countries in 18 days. German DB Cargo has estimated that as a consequence of these Chinese investments, the amount of goods transported between China and Germany will grow to 100, 000 twenty-foot equivalent (TEU) by 2020, up from 40, 000 TEU in 2016.
  • Infrastructure is critical to the rail network and the vast size of networks means it is lucrative business. Some companies have circumvented laws prohibiting train operators also operating infrastructure by setting up dedicated subsidiaries.
  • Competition has intensified markedly in train manufacturing in recent years, spurring a wave of consolidation as scale becomes critical to survival.
  • Demand for rail freight is increasing; infrastructure and rolling stock investment must keep pace
