Let’s build a smarter planet: RailA mandate for changeMorgan Stanley estimates that there will be US$300 billion worth of global investment toupgrade, expand and initiate railway networks during the next five years. Consistent with thisinvestment, consider the growth that is occurring across the world:  By 2012, rail industry revenue is forecast to be US$514 billion, with a 3.3 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2007 to 2012  The global rail supply market grew 9 percent from 2006 to 2007 and is expected to continue growing 2.0-2.5 percent over the next nine years  Asia Pacific will grow at 6 percent average CAGR, while China alone will grow 11.8 percent CAGR from 2007 to 2012.5  U.S. freight railroad demand will increase 88 percent by 2035, requiring an estimated US$148 billion of investment for existing lines  Europe’s passenger railway market will have a value of US$116.5 billion in 2012, an increase of 19.3 percent from 2007 and a CAGR of 3.6 percentIf the rail industry is to meet this projected growth, it needs to solve substantial, eventransformational, business issues and challenges.
