China is now a powerhouse in high speed rolling stock manufacturing and exports, and much of that has happened between 2005-2015. 16 years ago(2004), China abandoned its own development attempt at high speed rail development, deciding instead to rely upon Japanese, German, and French technology.


Rail transit is not as big in North America as Europe or China. US has just over 1,500km network of light rail transit whereas Canada has just over 200km network length.

The freight rail market in North America is 3X bigger than passenger transit because of the sheer length and breadth of the two countries.

The Indian Railways contributes to ~3% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and has social obligations pegged at $5.3 Billion annually. It is among the few government-owned enterprises which has been incurring losses year-after-year. Railways around the world, like in the US, Europe and Japan have undergone ownership changes. But, Indian railways, continues to be monitored by government.

The Indian railways‘ plan of exporting its coaches in the global $180 Billion rolling stock market will be major growth driver for rolling stock market in India. New coach manufacturing in India has already got a boost by record high CAPEX allocation of ~$900M in the FY 2019-20 budget, a sharp increase as compared to just ~$500M in FY 2018-2019.
