Global Wooden Railway Ties Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Railroad ties are wooden blocks that are used to support railroad tracks. They are typically made from treated lumber, which helps to protect them from decay and insects. Railroad ties help to keep the track in place and provide a stable surface for trains to travel on.

Hardwood Sleepers:

Hardwood sleepers are made of solid wood and are used to make railway ties. The growth factor in the market is increasing demand for wooden railway tie from the construction sector, as they provide a better surface finish than steel or concrete sleepers. Wooden Sleepers have several advantages over their counterparts; it has less wear & tear, no maintenance cost, and can be recycled after a period of time. Moreover these products also add an aesthetic value to any project due to their natural appearance.

Softwood Sleepers:

Softwood sleepers are the softest form of wood and it is widely used in railway tie production. It has high durability, strength, and impact resistance properties. Softwood is also known as living or green wood which can be cut from a tree without killing the tree.

Application Insights:

Railway was the largest application segment in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Railway ties are widely used in railway construction for stabilizing rails, binding rails together, and strengthening rail tracks. Strictly speaking, railway tie is a wooden rail that connects two railroad cars or wagons together; however, due to widespread usage of the product for different applications in land transportation as well as civil engineering sectors, it has been included under the broader term of railway ties.

The mine application segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand from various mines across various regions globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to increasing railway infrastructure development coupled with rising passenger traffic in countries, such as China, India, Japan and Thailand. In addition, increasing use of wooden ties for landscape decoration is also expected to drive regional product demand.

The European market was valued at USD X million in 2017 owing to high demand from Germany and Italy on account of increased railway infrastructure activities coupled with growing tourism industry. Moreover, softwood sleeper ties are gradually replacing hardwood sleepers due to their better characteristics as a result of which Europe wooden railway tie market is expected witness significant growth over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for railway transportation in developing countries
  • Growing investments in railway infrastructure
  • Proliferation of high-speed railways
  • Rising demand for recycled wooden railway ties
  • Technological advancements in production of wooden railway ties
