Because of railway comparative advantages in terms of technical and economic characteristics such as transport capacity, cost and low-carbon, under the background of economic globalization and low-carbon economy, the railway, especially high-speed railway, has been relatively rapidly developing in many countries. In the development process, the railway network structure has been further adjusted and optimized. The status and role of the high-speed railway has become more prominent in the railway network. The traveling people have paid more attention to improving the quality and level of transport service and the safety, efficiency, convenience, comfort and sustainability of transportation. Under this background, railway accessories market has become very prosperous in Asia due to the leaping railway development and the implementation of the Belt& Road strategy of China. Rail track sizes in Asia is becoming larger and larger.
Current State and Prospects of Asian Railway Accessories Market
Looking at the structural changes in the railway passenger and cargo transportation market, with the advancement of global economic industrialization and urbanization and the rapid economic growth of emerging economies, the overall scale and the total volume of railway passenger and cargo transportation have generally shown steady growth trend in the past decade in the world. However, for different countries, the scale and structure of railway passenger and cargo transportation vary greatly. The growth of railway passenger transportation is mainly concentrated in the Asian market. With the advancement of urbanization, population growth and the large-scale opening and operation of railway passenger-dedicated line, China has grown rapidly with an average annual increase of 7.27% from 2000 to 2012; due to rapid economic growth and accelerated urbanization of India, the average annual growth rate has also reached 7.68%; Japan has a small land area and a large population density, but a developed railway network, then a large scale of railway passenger transportation. In a word, rail track sizes in Asia are very big, and the future is prosperous.
The high-speed railway has become a new business card of China. Chinese railway manufacturers and suppliers should take this opportunity to go out into the globe and explore the international market actively, especially the Asian market. In Asian region there are a large number of the developing countries. Under the impetus of economic development, there is much space to career with the construction of traditional railways and urban light track. As of November of 2017, Asia is building 1,869 kilometers of high-speed railway lines except China and plans to build 13,620 kilometers. In terms of urban light track, Asia is still a densely populated area. With the progress of urbanization, many Asian cities rank among the top in the world in urban population density. However, the construction of urban light track in developing countries of Asia is generally lagging behind that of Western countries currently, and the demand will become increasingly significant in the future. By the end of 2016, Asian countries and cities including China have been actively planning the construction of urban light track.
Potential Market and Products of Asian Railway Accessories
From the perspective of the marketing development, Asia, especially South Asia and Southeast Asia, including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand and 6 countries in the Gulf are undoubtedly important promotion targets. Of course, the ambitions of the other countries are also growing, which shouldn’t be ignored by people.
Asian countries, especially in South Asia and Southeast Asia, have been unable to fully grasp the mature technology related to railway accessories products and have a strong economic strength for long years. Therefore, most of railway accessories products also rely on international cooperation and then obtain. Many countries generally adopt UIC standards for their railways. The application range of UIC products is very wide. In the Asian railway accessories market, UIC series products, such as UIC54 and UIC60 steel rails and matched fishplates and fasteners that mainly include the types of rail fastening such as E-clip systems, SKL-12 system, SKL-14 system, Fast clip system, etc. A considerable proportion is shared. Of course, because of the advancement of China’s railway technology and its active participation in the development of the Asian market, China’s GB standard fasteners are also in demand in recent years in Asia, for example, GB track bolt,. At the same time, 43kg, 50kg and 60kg of heavy rails, and 22kg, 24kg and 38kg of light rails, QU80, QU100 and QU120 of crane rails, fishplates and the whole set of fasteners also have a certain market share.
