Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the railcar leasing market in Europe:
- Growth in oil, gas, and mining industry
- Increased funding by the European Commission
- Liberalization of rail industry in Europe
Growth in oil, gas, and mining industry
The railcar market in Europe will be primarily driven by the oil and gas industry, which accounted for 36.18% freight volume share in 2016. The production of primary energy, such as oil, natural gas, and nuclear fuel (uranium), accounted for over 800 million tonnes in 2016.
According to Sharan Raj, a lead logistics research analyst from Technavio, “The growth in consumption and production of primary and secondary energy in Europe will drive the market for the oil and gas industry. Development in the oil and gas industry will drive the growth of the railcar leasing market in Europe.”
Increased funding by the European Commission
Since the year 1990, there has been a significant increase in the government funding in the European railway industry. For example, in Switzerland, two-third of the revenue from the heavy vehicle fee is designated for rail investments. For encouraging the movement of freight by rail, governments provide freight grants to the railway industry.
“European Commission launched a public-private partnership called Shift2Rail in the year 2013, where the commission planned to invest more than USD 480 million during the forecast period, toward research, innovation, and advancing the rail infrastructure. This will include intelligent traffic management and control systems, and innovative IT and inter-modal freight solutions,” adds Sharan.
Liberalization of rail industry in Europe
Monopoly control and the difference in policy regulations from region to region has been the main reason behind the strict freight transport regulation. The regulations mainly included fixing tariffs that are laid down by public authorities and haulage committees; setting up licenses for new entrants in the market (setting quality and quantity restrictions); working conditions, which include driving time and labor wage; and maintaining proper operating standards for vehicles, which include industry measures, access to tracks, and speed.
