Rail wheels are the basis of movement for the trains by providing traction, while axles are used to
transmit vertical loads to the wheels. The assembly of rail wheels, axle, bearing and brake components are called as rail wheel set.
Over the last few year, increasing government projects to connect two states or country such as One Belt One Road is anticipated to
create opportunity for the global market during the forecast time period. Additionally, increasing high speed rail project
particularly in developing countries have also opened the door for the market. On the flip side, government regulations pertaining to
replacing of wheel and axle are also anticipated to give positive potential to the global rail wheel and axle market during the
forecast time period.
