The performance of the vehicles needs to be improved.
Power trains will consume less energy, components will become lighter,
standardization of regenerative braking and recuperation of kinetic energy. New
vehicles will be built to be recyclable and innovative materials will be used.
The rate of growth in the supplier market has slowed
in last few years and estimated to grow at 2% a year up to 2022. This reflects
the worldwide trend towards conservative investment strategies due to slow
overall economic growth. Increasing political uncertainties in several regions
are leading to the delay or cancellation of new investments. The market for
rail freight products, which is directly linked to economic growth, is
suffering particularly hard. In contrast, urban rail continues to stimulate
long-term growth. China, the largest market, is following a similar pattern to
other countries, as it reduces investment in conventional and high-speed rail
but increasingly supports the development of urban rail systems. The high over
capacity of Chinese manufacturers is leading to a strong focus on international
markets and intensification of competition. Consolidation of the railway
industry has already started and it will even accelerate.
