SCI Verkehr’s MultiClient Study “Metro Vehicles – Global Market Trends” offers a comprehensive insight into the structure, fleets, volumes and development trends in the worldwide market for metro vehicles.

Urbanisation, the increasing mobility of people and climate change are resulting in increased demand for modern and efficient public transport systems. On the other hand, slumps in ridership and changing work behaviours as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic present urban transportation with new challenges. However, metro is a very environment-friendly transport mode which further will grow importance in coming years as many on-going infrastructure projects show.

Based on current developments, this MultiClient Study delivers an analysis and well-founded estimate of the market for metro vehicles and network development.

In concrete terms, this market study of metro vehicles includes:

  • A regionally differentiated look at the worldwide market for metro vehicles including an in-depth analysis of all important markets of the individual countries. Network length, installed base and average vehicle age in 2021 of all cities operating a metro system are provided
  • An overview of the most important drivers behind the procurement and refurbishment of metro vehicles in the individual regions
  • A comprehensive analysis of the current fleet stocks concerning quantities and age structures as well as future procurement potential up to 2030. An analysis of the current market shares of important manufacturers as well as a forecast of future vehicle requirements of customers up to 2030
