The report evaluates the market across each region and for the major economies within each region.Growth in the historic period resulted from strong economic growth in emerging markets, rise in e-commerce, change in taxation rules, and rise in mining activity. The market was restrained by political uncertainties and change in customer preference. Going forward high-speed trains, technological advances, and emphasis on cutting carbon emission will drive the growth. Factors that could hinder the growth of the rail transport market in the future include shortage of drivers and operators, stringent government regulations, growing ease and popularity of ride hailing apps and increased car rental opportunities.The COVID-19 outbreak had a significant impact on the rail transport as governments globally imposed lockdowns and suspended domestic and international transportation services to contain the virus.
