DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 8, 2018--The "US Rail Axle Bearings and Seals Market, Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering

This research service covers all types of US rail based on application and provides the number of new deliveries and number of vehicles for periodic overhaul, which gives a close account of the number of bearings required for each segment for the forecast period. Comparative studies on the position of competition in the US bearings market, opportunities for OEM and aftermarket segments, and guidelines to participate in the region are also in the scope for the time period 2017-2024.

Navigating into the US bearings market, industrialists would find that there are numerous opportunities in the coming years with the expansion of passenger rail and continuous growth of freight volumes, which would result in the increase in the intermodal share for freight rail. It is quite evident that freight traffic is growing and will continue to grow, which means that there are improvements in store for existing fleet of freight carriers, including rail. Growing need for reduced emissions and avoiding traffic congestion are driving people to rethink their travel modes. Improvements in passenger rail infrastructure and long-distance connectivity is not far away.

There are hundreds of miles of new rail networks in the books and a lot of additional rolling stock planned as well. Improving freight rail infrastructure is vital in bringing about faster and efficient means of transportation for essential goods and industrial products. Building a sustainable, environment-friendly mode of transport for freight would help reduce emissions and congestion from the use of road trucks that are the top contenders in freight transport. There would be a shift in the freight movement from trucks to rail and in the next two decades. Rail ton mileage would exceed that of trucks by 20%, according to the Federal Highway Administration.

With increasing opportunities in freight rail, improvements in passenger rail, and expansion of rail networks being planned, the rail bearings market should thrive as well.
