The urban rail market (metro rail/subway/rapid transit, light trail/tram/streetcar, and commuter rail/suburban rail) is poised for growth. Investments in the segment are being driven by an increasing awareness among city authorities and transport agencies that an efficient public transport system, including an urban rail system, is critical for the competitiveness of a city. Cities are looking at developing highly efficient and reliable urban rail systems, which means that there are construction opportunities as well as opportunities for equipment and technology providers. In the past few years, transport authorities/transit agencies have developed focused plans and city governments have introduced policy initiatives to stimulate investor interest. These industry and market forces are presenting sizeable business opportunities in the urban rail segment in both emerging and mature markets.

While opportunities exist, business leaders and investors are often faced with the tough challenge of which markets to focus on and where to invest. The recently launched “High Growth Urban Rail Markets” report analyses the top 25 markets with high growth potential in the urban rail segment.
