Rolling stock, a term used in railway transportation industry, refers to any vehicle including both powered and unpowered that can move on rail-road, some of which include: locomotives, railroad cars, coaches, private railroad cars and wagons. They are widely used as a cost-effective mode of transportation which ensures reliability and comfortability along with several other benefits.

They are increasingly used for transporting industrial chemicals, petrol and diesel, among other goods across numerous industries with utmost speed and certainty.

Currently, the trend is towards autonomous rolling stocks as they operate automatically and are monitored or controlled from the control station. In case of obstacles or hindrances, a message is sent to the operational control center and to the attendant on the train, to stop the train.

Moreover, these rolling stocks are highly customizable and can be easily modified as per customer’s requirements. The global rolling stocks market is expected to grow at a moderate CAGR in the years to come.


The growth of rolling stocks market is attributed towards factors which include but are not limited to the growing population in urban areas, which is putting enormous pressure on the existing transportation infrastructure, increase in allocation of the budget for development of railways, rise in demand for secure, safer, & efficient transport, rise in use of public transport services as a solution to minimize traffic congestions, government initiatives to provide faster, cleaner and safest transport system, flourishing travel and tourist industry, growing demand for energy-efficient transport, the integration of these transports with the internet of things (IoT), innovations in big data and analytics and increase in industrial and mining activities etc.

Additionally, high-speed railway projects, growing need for energy efficient transport, the participation of governments to develop cheap and safe means of transportation are also factors expected to fuel the market growth. Also, rolling stock orders have long lead times and long lifetimes for which major innovations are needed to manufacture rolling stocks that can meet the needs of the future.

Expansion of rail infrastructure is taking place because of the increasing population and rapid urbanization. Rail transportation is comparatively economical, faster, and well-suited for carrying heavy or bulky goods over long distances. Also, it additionally offers flexible and largest carrying capacity and if required its capacity can be easily increased by further addition of stocks accordingly.

Moreover, these days, passengers prefer rail transportation owing to the reduced traffic and resistance against changing weather conditions, as compared to road transportation and others. This again propels the demand and grows the overall market.

Furthermore, various governments are introducing stringent standards and norms for increasing the use of rolling stock. For example, the Russian industrial rail operators are required to replace their aging locomotives and shunting units with new ones to ensure safety. These standards and norms are creating growth opportunities for the manufacturers of the rolling stock market globally.

However, high capital requirement, refurbishment of existing rolling stock, high dependency on government’s policies, high competitive environment created by other modes of transport, high maintenance cost and cyber threats are a few factors which restrain the growth of this market.
