New Study: Worldwide Rolling Stock Manufacturers 2020

Freight Wagons - Global Market Trends 2020

After an all-time high in 2018/2019, a calming of the market already began at the end of 2019 even without the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The influential country markets of China and Russia are mainly responsible for this: China Railways has relatively clearly failed to meet the targets it has set itself in the form of a procurement plan with up to 210,000 freight wagons between 2018 and 2020, while in Russia, the process of fleet renewal, which has led to extensive procurements in recent years, is largely complete.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also taken a hold of the global market for freight wagons, albeit at very different dynamics. Even without the pandemic, a decline in delivery figures could be observed in this very cyclical business. The downturn in worldwide production and transport demand has taken a hold of the industry at an already weaker phase. National stimulus packages cannot compensate for this everywhere and only partially. This is the result of the current study “Freight Wagons - Global Market Trends” where SCI Verkehr is analysing the individual developments of the freight wagon market in the various market regions.
