Global Hyperloop Train Market: Snapshot

The global market for hyperloop train is likely to exhibit high-speed expansion in the next few years. The demand for cheap and quick modes of transport that incur low base-costs and are built on easier-to-construct infrastructure, are immune to natural calamities such as earthquakes are the key factors expected to work in favor of the global hyperloop train market. The demand is expected to be highest in emerging economies with massive rise in population and a worrying decline in space to accommodate the mounting population, required modes of transport, and need for effective transport technologies that are quick and cheap.

The market is expected to witness the most promising demand for passenger transport over the next few years. As passenger transport of massive scales can bring about several benefits to an economy, such as the reduced number of personal vehicles on the roads and reduced levels of pollution and the provision of economical transport option for the larger low-income population, governments across the globe are focusing on developments in this area.

While hyperloop trains are comparable to speed in transport options such as bullet trains and airplanes, their cost is comparatively very low, a factor which could make hyperloop trains more popular among consumers. The confluence of low cost and lighting fast-speeds could make hyperloop trains one of the future generations' most preferred transport option and could change the face of the transportation sector.

Global Hyperloop Train Market: Overview

With rapid urbanization across the world, the need for quick and yet efficient modes of transportation is escalating. The concept of hyperloop train may be the answer to the increasing travel demands, as it promises to achieve speeds up to 800-mile-per-hour via transportation tube concept which was first introduced in 2013. Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has been developing this concept for past few years and the stocks of Elon Musk’s hyperloop high-speed transportation system are now available in AECOM. Due to never ending demand for transportation and travel across developed as well as emerging economies, several investors are coming forward with their financial might to make the concept of hyperloop train a reality in near future. Consequently, the global market for hyperloop train is expected to expand at a rapid rate during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. 

Global Hyperloop Train Market: Key Trends

Support from several governments is the primary driving factor of this market. For instance, Slovakia has recently sealed an agreement with Hyperloop Transportation Technologies to build the concept in Europe, connecting the Vienna in Austria and Budapest in Hungary with the capital city of Bratislava. If everything falls into place, the travel to Vienna to Bratislava would only take 8 minutes while Budapest to Bratislava can be covered in 10 minutes. In a car, these two journeys currently consume an hour and two hours respectively. This significant time-saving is expected to encourage several other European countries to invest in the concept of hyperloop train and thereby augmenting the demand in the market for the same. 

Along the same lines, the state of California in the United States is in process of permitting a five-mile test track in Quay Valley, with construction expected to begin sometime in 2017. Conversely, the concept of hyperloop train is yet to see the day of light, and its business model has not been completely realized. Moreover, the high cost associated with the construction is hindering the global hyperloop market from realizing its potential at the earliest. 

Global Hyperloop Train Market: Market Potential

Though Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is yet to open for traditional funding, CEO and founder Dirk Ahlborn has revealed that more than 600 institutional investors are willing to provide financial support. With donations worth more than US$600 mn in the form of wind chambers, land assets, and other engineering tools, hyperloop train market is expanding its horizons, also gaining support from several governments in Asia Pacific and the Middle East. According to Ahlborn, first few passengers to travel via hyperloop test train would be in 2018 or 2019 in the U.S. 

Global Hyperloop Train Market: Regional Outlook

Owing to substantial finances required for the realization of the concept, the market for hyperloop train currently has most of the demand coming from the developed regions of North America and Europe, although the country of Middle East is also adamant of improving their infrastructure and is expected to invest financially as well as allot land for hyperloop train during the forecast period. Co-founder and COO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Bibop Gresta, says that six more countries in Middle East and Asia are ready to announce the adoption of the hyperloop train market in the next few months. 

Global Hyperloop Train Market: Competitive Landscape
