According to PAIH’s data, 1,685 railway wagons were produced in Poland in 2022.
PAIH’s quarterly industry reports published in English are an important source of knowledge on the situation of 15 sectors of the Polish economy. According to the report, there are 10 companies producing rolling stock and 4 tram manufacturers in Poland.
Poland has a very extensive rail network . It consists of 19,326 km of railway lines, of which 62.9% are electrified. The construction of another 4,500 km is planned before 2050. The construction of completely railway lines means a potentially high demand for rolling stock.
As PAIH’s experts emphasize, the production of rail vehicles in Poland is well developed. The three main manufacturers of rolling stock are: PESA Bydgoszcz, Newag and H. Cegielski FPS. Moreover, the following foreign companies have invested in this sector in Poland: Alstom, Stadler, Siemens.
