About This Report


The Rail Freight Transport industry has grown strongly over the past five years, driven by increased downstream demand from mining as exports of coal and iron ore have risen. Industry profitability is strongest when heavy commodities are carried over long distances, as this leverages the economies of scale and fuel efficiency of rail transport. Over the past five years, the bulk freight segment has strengthened, as the mining sector shifted from a boom in prices to a boom in output. Industry revenue is therefore forecast to rise at a compound annual rate of 4.4% over the five years through 2015-16, to reach $8.2 billion.

Companies in the industry primarily operate railways for freight transportation. The industry does not include the operation of rail freight terminals or private railroads operated in-house for the transportation of goods.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
