Looming concern over the impact of transportation on environment is driving governments across the globe to encourage rail and intermodal transport for both passenger and freight transport. Additionally, rising off-shore outsourcing rates and growing complexity of supply chains due to globalization are increasing miles travelled by product from well to wheel. All businesses alike are forced to optimize their transportation and logistics strategy by adopting multimodal transport with rail as an important mode of transport. Rail industry stakeholders, on the other hand, are compelled to look for strategies to deal with increasing passenger miles, rising demand for freight transport, customer satisfaction and adhere to stringent environmental norms through new-age technology adoption and innovative business models.
Frost & Sullivan's Global Rail program area takes a 360-degree view of the industry factoring all the trends that impact and subsequently transform the rail industry. Key areas that the program explores are:
- Rolling Stock (Light Rail, Metro, MainLine, High Speed Rail)
- Infrastructure (signaling, track, station)
- Bus & BRT solutions
- Advanced technologies and New Business Models
We work closely with leading Rolling Stock Manufacturers, service providers and technology firms to help them assess, analyze and target opportunities. Our research services help us enable our clients to stay ahead of the curve in this industry.
