Urbanization and congestion trends are prevalent more in developed
regions as the rate of urbanization is expected to increase to 80.4% by

Increasing urbanization and rise in demand for urban and intercity
mobility have resulted in growing need for energy efficient
transportation solutions. There will be more than 20 mega regions around
the globe that open up avenues for smart and integrated transportation
by 2025.

Development of High Speed Rail network has demonstrated success in terms
providing energy efficient inter city transportation solutions and
reducing congestion in many countries. This study examines HSR
development models in five major economies including Japan, China, South
Korea, Taiwan, and Spain. Specifically, key purpose and functions of HSR
network, challenges, economic impact of these projects, key lessons in
project design, financing and implementation aspects are evaluated.

Some of the findings based on comparative assessment of the HSR
network development and implementation are listed below:

  • Reasons for the establishment of HSR include traffic congestion,
    boosting productivity and upgrading transport network that spurs
    economic development
  • Project design must take into consideration the specific
    characteristics of the urban patterns and economic structure
  • Ability to identify synergies with local players, attract talents, and
    bridge the skill gap is essential to build a sustainable high-speed
    rail industry
  • Development of eco-system which include local R&D, innovation
    practices and intellectual property management is critical for a
    successful HSR network
  • Cost considerations are of central relevance when making choices
    concerning HSR projects and their implementation

Research Scope

The aim of this insight is to research and analyze the key developments
and trends related to High Speed Rail Network of selected countries in
the Asian and European region.

Key Issues Addressed

  • What are the options available for promoting sustainable transport
    solutions especially in mega cities? What are the benefits of High
    Speed Rail (HSR) line?
  • What are the factors to be considered in planning a successful HSR
  • How HSR is varies across countries and regions? What are the key
    lessons learnt from countries that are operating HSR network?
  • How does HSR benefit business? What are the economic benefits that
    will be generated through HSR?
  • What are the enhancements needed to maximize the HSR development
