The Bullet Train/High-Speed Rail Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.54% during the forecast period, to reach 5,287 units by 2025. The need for rapid mass transit to reduce traffic congestion and journey time with enhancing luxury has increased the demand for the bullet train/high-speed rail market globally.
The wheel on rail technology of bullet train/high-speed rail is expected to have the largest market share owing to its higher adoption rate by the bullet train/high-speed rail manufacturers. The growing expansion of high-speed rail infrastructure in the numerous countries across the regions is creating the need for the wheel on rail technology of bullet train/high-speed rail. The maglev technology of bullet train/high-speed rail is electro-magnetically propelled over the guideways and does not require rail tracks for its operation. This functioning of maglev trains eradicates the friction associated with the wheels and tracks, thereby enhances the operating speed. The development of the maglev technology of bullet train/high-speed rail would act as a catalyst for the growth of bullet train/high-speed rail.
