With a global volume of more than EUR 25 billion annually, the market for freight wagons plays a central role within the rail industry. SCI’s MultiClient study "Freight Wagons – Global Market Trends 2022" is the ninth edition of this study, which analyses the freight wagon market worldwide and provides in-depth insights into market volumes, installed bases, procurement projects and development trends.

Current crises have a tight grip on the freight wagon market, but different dynamics can be observed in the individual regions. Disrupted supply chains caused by the war in Ukraine posed a challenge especially in the first half of 2022 and led to rising prices for new freight wagons in Europe. High inflation is aggravating the situation. The Chinese market, however, is still under the strong influence of the Covid-19 crisis and resulting lockdowns. Moreover, with Russia, another one of the most important freight wagon markets worldwide is in a downturn. After record deliveries at the end of the 2010s, an expected slowdown took place, but now the war has caused a sharp drop in freight wagon production. Despite the various challenges, a significant growth of the global freight wagon market is expected, strongly influenced by the expected price development. This is the conclusion of the latest study "Freight Wagons - Global Market Trends 2022".

In concrete terms, this MultiClient Study contains:

  • A regionally differentiated examination of the global market for freight wagons including an in-depth analysis of all attractive markets in the individual regions, especially in Europe
