Railway Vehicle Wheels Market 2018 to 2025

22 Jan 2019 - Global Railway Vehicle Wheels Market is expected to display stupendous growth during the forecast period. The rail wheels are made up of a special alloy and as against popular notion, the flanges of the wheels do not rest on the tracks and rolling motion is directed by wheel heads without any guidance except for the shape with regards to rail head. The flanges only lock on the rail when train is about to derail. The shape of the wheel tire and wheel head is in perfect symmetry with rest of the wheel alignment.


The negotiation for wheel profile is agreed upon with a consensus between railway infrastructure and rolling stock owner. This could vary from place to place but is rarely a simple work-out. It is a calculated ratio in fractions, marginally differing in U.S. and France. The characteristics leading to growth of global railway vehicle wheels market include superior manufacturing technology, superior facilities, a high-speed driving wheel set, a high speed trailing wheel sets.

Longer wheel life is guaranteed by specific wheels that have some longer wheel life under rugged conditions whereby reduction in replacing wheelsets translates into automatic growth for railway vehicle wheels market. Segmentation of railway vehicle wheels market by type includes rolled rail wheel, forged rail wheel and other. Segmentation of railway vehicle wheels market by application includes high-speed rains, railroad passenger cars, railroad freight cars and others.


By region, segmentation includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, MEA and Latin America. Light rail systems operating over roadways will have specific profiles. The wheels of rail cars are made up of high tensile carbon alloy steel and undergo a high thermal deterioration programme to consider heat sustainability at higher temperatures and heavy haul worst-case conditions. This gives wheels more traction and higher tolerance to sustain extreme conditions.


A rolling component is pressed directly on axle and mounted directly on a locomotive or indirectly on a bogie. Wheels are forged and heat treated to give them specific hardness. Wheels and tires form the body of the wheel, wheel on the inside and tire on the outside. The tire is steel compressed by heating onto the wheel where it cools. Monobloc and resilient rail wheels differ in rubber component.
