APAC Train Seat Market size is poised to surpass USD 775 million by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research. The increasing need for rapid urban transit and the expansion of rail infrastructure are anticipated to propel product demand during the forecast years.
Asia Pacific accounts for a significant portion of the global train seat industry. A large volume of passengers in densely populated cities across the region uses rail transportation, enabling market growth. For instance, in 2019, around 3.6 billion people traveled by train, which was an increase of over 8% compared to the previous year. In addition, due to alleviated carbon emissions, trains have a significantly low environmental impact than the other methods of transportation. This factor will fuel the adoption of the rail network as a preferred mode of commute.
Supply chain disturbances due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic are posing challenges to the market size expansion. The temporary closure of manufacturing facilities and suspension of public transportation including railways caused a severe toll on the market revenue generation in 2020. Nevertheless, resuming operations across the region and the high recovery rate expected by countries, such as China, India, and South Korea, are likely to support market development in the coming years.
