Technavio’s transportation and logistics research analysts categorize the rolling stock market in North America into the following segments by product. They are:

  • Rapid transit vehicles
  • Railroad cars
  • Locomotives

Rapid transit vehicles

The rapid transit vehicles include high-speed trains, LRV (Light Rail Vehicle), EMU (Electric Multiple Unit), DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit), and metro vehicles. This segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Rapid transit vehicles are usually found in the major cities of North America, like New York, San Francisco, and Washington.

According to Sharan Raj, a lead logistics research analyst from Technavio, “The key vendors are trying to set up their manufacturing units in the US since the country's government is taking many initiatives to establish a high-speed rail. The government initiatives, such as balanced regulation and liberalized taxation, will make the US an attractive spot for the vendors.

Railroad cars

The railroad cars include passenger coaches and freight wagons. The freight wagons are mostly used to transport goods and commodities in industries across North America. The growing industry and increasing public transport corporation are expected to raise the demand in this segment.

“The most commonly used freight cars on the North American railroads are Box, gondola covered, gondola uncovered, hopper covered and uncovered, and flat and refrigerated tanks. By understanding the demands, the vendors are coming up with new freight wagons of high axle strength. The high axle strength helps freight to tolerate heavy load,” says Sharan.

Locomotives

Locomotives are known as train engines. These are self-propelled vehicles used to pull or push passenger coaches or freight wagons on the rail tracks. They are either electric locomotives, diesel locomotives, or diesel-electric locomotives. The electric locomotives are powered by electricity from an overhead wire. The transformer inside converts the electricity into the required mode to run the wheels.

The US railroad considers 26-31 years as the useful life period for locomotives. This results in vendors experiencing either a cycle of over-demand or a phase of no demand throughout their market presence. The demand for this segment in North America is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Bombardier
  • Freight Car America
  • National Steel Car
  • The Greenbrier Companies
  • American Railcar Industries
