The ballast track segment dominated the market

By application, the ballast track segment held the lion’s share in 2019, accounting for more than half of the North America railway maintenance machinery market, owing to features such as quick water drainage and chances of vegetation and increase in number of railroad infrastructure along with government initiatives to reduce carbon emissions. However, the non-ballast track segment is expected to portray the highest CAGR of 6.6% from 2021 to 2028, due to increase in demand for non-ballast track maintenance machinery as they demand less maintenance.
