Report Description

Competing in train manufacturing - Global market undergoing swift development


Train manufacturing around the world has experienced significant change over recent years, impacting the extent of competition within the global market. Leading companies are now larger than ever following a spate of mergers and acquisitions, enabling the biggest companies to compete for more contracts in more countries. Yet increased competition overseas has also had a negative impact on some domestic markets; the two leading players in China merged after a period of fierce price reductions. Even in developed economies competition revolves as much around keeping the trust of governments as it does around producing high-quality trains, and this is even more so the case in the developing world.

Key Highlights

- The United Kingdom serves as a useful example of the impact transport policy can have on competition among train manufacturers. Several high-profile projects have resulted in extensive orders being placed in a relatively short period of time, attracting much foreign competition.
- Itself the result of a mega-merger between the two leading Chinese train manufacturing companies, CRRC is seeking to expand overseas and has already made a big impact, forcing existing players in several valuable markets to compete harder to win contracts.
- Consolidation has been a leading theme in the market in recent years. Leading companies have raced to acquire companies operating in alternative markets, an easier process than attempting to create new operations from scratch. In response to the Chinese merger, two leading European companies Siemens and Alstom merged, creating a European company capable of competing against CRRC.
