Market Overview:

The global rail drilling machines market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for rail drilling machines in heavy and urban rail applications across the globe. Additionally, factors such as technological advancements and rising demand for electric-driven rail drilling machines are also contributing to the growth of this market. However, volatility in prices of raw materials is likely to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period. Based on type, electric-driven rail drilling machines are expected to account for a major share of the global Rail Drilling Machines Market during 2018-2030 owing their high efficiency and low maintenance cost as compared with petrol engine or battery operated drill rigs.

Global Rail Drilling Machines Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Rail drilling machines are used to drill holes in railway tracks. They are important because they help keep the tracks in good condition and ensure that trains can travel safely on them.

Electric Driven:

Electric driven (ED) drilling machines are used in various applications such as land development, earthmoving & construction, mining and others. The increasing demand for oil and gas has led to the growth of unconventional reserves which include tight sands, shale gas and coal bed methane. These reserves require new extraction technologies that can penetrate into the rock more effectively than conventional techniques. This is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Petrol Engine:

The petrol engine is the prime mover in a drilling machine and it's used for generating the power which is further utilized to drive the drill string. The petrol engine forms a vital part of drilling machines as it provides power to run all other mechanical components such as pumps, motors, conveyors and so on.

Application Insights:

The heavy rail segment dominated the global rail drilling machines market in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The segment is projected to account for a revenue share of around 40% by 2030. The demand for these machines has witnessed an upsurge owing to various advantages such as high power, torque and speed offered by these products which are required in order to make them suitable for use on heavy rails.

The urban railway segment accounted for a smaller share in the global market as compared with other segments but this may change soon due to increasing urbanization across various regions including Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa.

Regional Analysis:

Europe dominated the global market in 2017 owing to high demand for rail drilling machines from countries, such as Germany, France and Russia. The region is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period. Increasing number of metro projects in major cities including Paris, Berlin and Moscow are anticipated to drive regional product demand. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2018 to 2030 due its increasing infrastructure activities coupled with rising investments by governments of emerging economies including China and India.

The Middle East & Africa region is also expected witness significant growth over the next eight years on account of increasing government spending on infrastructure development along with rising oil prices that will boost economic activity across this region’s major economies including Saudi Arabia and UAE; thus driving overall drilling machine requirements for construction activities across various applications such as heavy rail, urban rail among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for rail drilling machines from the railway sector as they are used for track maintenance and construction activities.
  • Growing investments in the railway infrastructure by various governments across the globe is expected to boost the demand for rail drilling machines over the next few years.
  • Rising adoption of rail drilling machines in mining and construction industries due to their high efficiency and productivity levels as compared to other traditional drilling methods.
  • Technological advancements in rail drilling machines that has led to introduction of new models with enhanced features, which is likely to fuel market growth over the forecast period.
