Growing urbanization and increased mobility have resulted in the soaring demand for passenger coaches in the urban rail market.

With the growing population shifting to urban areas, the demand for rail transportation services has increased. This will lead to an increase in the number of rail passenger carriers such as trams, light rail, monorail, and commuter rail services.
