Description

This study covers the global high speed rail (HSR) composites market. These composites are used to achieve weight reduction in new HSR rolling stock amid fuel efficiency requirements and operating cost concerns. The study examines drivers and restraints covering growth, pricing, demand and application trends. Furthermore, it offers an in-depth analysis of advanced fibre properties, prevalent fabrication methods, key application trends and resin systems used in HSR rolling stock. The base year is 2011, with forecasts running through 2018.
