SCI Global Rail Index I/2018

Worldwide railway industry approaching new high point – mood in industry continues to be positive

Due to increasing demand for products and services, some manufacturers are already reaching their capacity limits. This has been increasingly reported in the recent past by customers of European freight wagon manufacturers. Starting from a high level and based on the positive development of the current business situation, the managers surveyed are nonetheless somewhat cautious about an even steeper increase in the business development in the course of the next six months.
