Top Companies Fuelling the Global Light Rail Vehicle Market

top light rail vehicle companies


Bombardier Inc, Alstom, Siemens Mobility GmbH, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd, Kawasaki Rail Car, Inc, and PKC Group Ltd, among others, are the significant players in the global market for light rail vehicles.


As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the light rail vehicle market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% in the forecast period of 2022-2027, driven by rapid urbanisation and increased mobility.


A key factor in redefining the future of urban transportation is the light rail vehicle, which is regarded as an effective mode of public transportation. The light rail vehicle transports people both inside and outside of urban areas. Its capacities vary slightly but is similar to that of a tramway.


The industry is aided by the increasing population globally and the increasing number of people moving to metropolitan areas, which is anticipated to result in a greater need for transportation services in the future. The enormous potential expansion in nations that do not yet have light rail transit implemented will likely propel the market growth. This is anticipated to fuel market expansion during the upcoming years.


During the forecast period, the light rail vehicle market is expected to be driven by the rising demand from transportation services and an increase in rail supplies. However, the producers of this product may see a slowdown in their market growth over the projection period since the cost of a light rail vehicle is much greater for long-distance routes with less traffic than for short-distance routes with more traffic.
