Market Trends

Rise in development of rail transit systems

The government of major countries are investing heavily in development urban rail transit. The focus is in developing high speed trains for passenger travel. Moreover, recently, a gradual shift towards high-speed magnetic levitation (maglev) railway networks has been observed. Maglev trains uses two sets of magnets one set to repel and push the train up off the track and make it levitate and the other set to move the train at a great speed. For instance, Japan currently has maglev trains and in April 2020, China's Zhejiang provincial government announced plans to build a 400 km long maglev network costing $14.1 billion. Thus, rise in development of rail transit system can act as an opportunity for growth of urban rail transit market.
