According to a recent analyst report from global market research company, Technavio, the railcar leasing market in North America, is predicted to grow steadily at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of above 9% by 2021. The report, titled Railcar Leasing Market In North America 2017-2021, finds that one of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in the demand for tank cars due to growing crude oil production. The demand for tank cars during the forecast period will increase due to more number of shippers transporting flammable liquids and gases. As tank cars carry highly flammable and toxic commodities, the federal railroad administration has listed rules and regulations that must be adhered to by rail freight operators and manufacturers. The rules and regulations include enhanced tank car standards and risk-based retrofitting for old tank cars that transport crude oil and ethanol. Also, all tank cars require braking standards that offer better safety and reduce chances of accidents. Consequently, the growth in crude oil production will result in the demand for rail freight transportation, which will drive the market for railcar leasing in North America during the forecast period.
