DUBLIN--()--The "Railroads Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Type (Rail Freight, Passenger Rail), by End Use (Mining, Construction, Agriculture), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2022-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global railroads market size is expected to reach USD 436.4 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.4%

Increased government investments in various countries to enhance railway infrastructure and create new lines, as well as the growing tourism industry in Asia Pacific and European countries, are important factors driving market expansion. Moreover, growing industrialization in underdeveloped and developing countries is likely to drive railroad demand throughout the forecast period.

The rail freight segment is predicted to grow significantly throughout the forecast period, owing to a growing reliance on rail routes for the transportation of goods and lower rail freight rates. Furthermore, a strong rail network facilitates the transportation of commodities to isolated places that are otherwise impossible to reach by air. The availability of less expensive alternatives for transporting large products or shipments is likely to boost rail freight demand in the coming years.

Moreover, globalization and growing industrialization have created a significant potential for logistics and transportation enterprises. Commodity rail transport accounts for roughly 80% of all railroad revenue in the current context. Railway transportation services are typically used to move commodities such as coal, chemicals, and crushed rocks, as well as consumer goods containers and automobiles. New technologies and infrastructure are likely to create new growth avenues for the railway industry.

Furthermore, with the introduction of phase one of the economic and trade agreement between China and the U.S. in February 2020 and a free trade deal under the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) among the three countries in July 2020, trade uncertainty and its negative impact on global rail employment began to subside.

However, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the bright prognosis for commerce and rail jobs did not endure long. Throughout the year, global trade and cargo volumes were affected as individuals around the world stayed at home and quarantined themselves in an attempt to contain the virus.

This market is consolidated in nature with a presence of a large number of international players and a few regional players. Several players are focusing on the planning, development, and expansion of railway projects around the world. Central Japan Railway Company, OAO RZD (Russian Railways), Union Pacific Corporation, Burlington Northern Santa Fe, LLC (BNSF), Canadian National Railway Company, Norfolk Southern Corporation, CSX Transportation, Canadian PacificRailway, and SNCF Group are among the prominent players in the global market.
