Railroad refers to a set of tracks made of steel that are laid on a roadbed. It is a medium of land-based mass transportation catering to the movement of passengers and commodities over short and long-distance routes. It comprises vehicles with flange wheels guided by parallel tracks that restrict movement and eliminate the need for steering. These vehicles are either self-propelled or use a locomotive for propulsion. The railroad is widely used for traveling and transporting bulk commodities, including coal, petroleum, chemicals, construction materials, agricultural produce, consumer goods, and automobiles. As compared to road transportation, the railroad is faster, safer, and more cost-effective, comfortable, and energy efficient due to the lower frictional resistance offered by tracks.
Railroad Market Trends:
The global railroad market is primarily driven by rapid industrialization, coupled with significant growth in the tourism industry. Due to the globalization-induced industrial revolution, the rising number of local and cross-border movements of travelers and commodities is facilitating the market growth. Additionally, the introduction of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in railroads that provide automatic warning, supervision, and control arrangements to enhance operational management and optimize energy usage is providing an impetus to the market growth. Apart from this, the increasing adoption of railroads for transporting bulk commodities to remote areas, owing to their robust connectivity, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities toward building new high-speed rails, such as maglev trains and metros, are creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the increasing inclination towards public transport systems to minimize pollution, carbon footprint, and traffic congestion is favoring the market growth. Other factors, including increasing investments by several governments for the expansion of the railroad network, exponential population growth, emerging trends of railcar leasing, and advancements in storage facilities for perishable goods, are anticipated to drive the market.
