- Rail + Metro China 2018 Preview

SHANGHAI, Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2018 Shanghai International Rail Transit Exhibition (Rail+Metro China 2018) produced by Shanghai Shentong Metro Group and Shanghai Intex Exhibition Co., Ltd. will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center on November 7 - 9, 2018.

I. Rail Transit Market in China Has Strong Growth with a Market Scale in the Trillions of RMB

By the end of December 2017, 33 cities in China have rail transit and the total mileage is in excess of 4,500 miles. By the year 2020, the operating mileage of urban rail transit in China is expected to reach 7,700 miles. The operating mileage of railway throughout the country exceeds 120,000 miles; the operating mileage of high-speed railway has reached 25,000 miles, which is the greatest in the world. China's rail transit market will remain attractive to global industrial participants for the foreseeable future.

II. Four Major Development Trends Stand Out from Pursuing to Leading the World

In recent years, urban rail transit in China is developing towards large-scale, networked structure, diversified systems, intellectualized equipment and independent technology. Mid-volume and diversified railway systems have been quickly developed. The larger market attracts more stakeholders such as BYD Group, Alibaba (Alipay), Baidu and Tencent, who are starting to take part in the business. New technologies such as cashless payment and face scan payment are available in various cities and have vastly changed people's payment pattern.

III. Understand the Market Direction and More at Rail + Metro China 2018
