Rolling stock refers to all the types of vehicles operating in the rail transport industry, including locomotives, coaches, and wagons, among others.

For instance, the government of India is planning to electrify the entire railway network of the country by the year 2025 to save energy worth US$1.5 billion.

However, the primary factor that inhibits the market growth is the long-life span of these rolling stocks, as high initial costs further lead to overhaul and refurbishment of current stock, which is anticipated to be a prime factor to moderately impact the market growth in the coming year. Also, the recent pandemic of the deadly COVID-19 is anticipated to hamper the demand owing to the halt in railway operations in many countries along with the temporary closure of industries which has led to a standstill in manufacturing activities, thereby negatively impacting the growth in the short run.

In India, the investment of rail infrastructure reached 10,368,632,929 Euros by 2017 from 5,149,561,183 Euros in 2010. Also, the government schemes for the penetration of bullet trains in the country are anticipated to provide an impetus for the market to surge in the next five years. For instance, in June 2015, India and Japan agreed on developing a new high-speed railway network connecting Ahmedabad and Mumbai. The project is expected to come into operation by 2023. Similarly, in China investment increased to 105,084,000,000 Euros by 2017 from 85,005,375,986 Euros in 2010. Furthermore, in December 2018, Renfe, Spain’s state-owned company that operates freight and passenger trains in the country, announced its plan to expand its railway fleet by acquiring new trains with a budget allocation of 3 billion Euros.
