Investments in railway infrastructure have also been looked into by the Government of India by making investor-friendly policies and enabling Foreign Direct Investment in railways to improve infrastructure for freight and high-speed trains. Also similar instance, in 2019, the UK government launched a velocity improvement initiative that does the continuous analysis of freight services focused on commodity and flow in close collaboration with freight operators. Therefore, the steps taken by the government to increase the rail freight will increase the demand for freight cars market growth during the period.

Stringent regulation regarding import and export is one of the major challenges to the freight car market growth. Rail freight transportation would decrease as a result of strict rules over trade which would decrease the demand for freight cars. In 2020, the Customs department of India imposed stringent rules on the free-trade agreement import of white goods to check undue dumping of these commodities under FTAs from non-producing countries.

It aims to check the misuse of relaxation under free-trade agreements. India is also keen to implement new planned regulations to boost local manufacturing by reducing imports and the move is primarily aimed at slashing the amount of lower-quality imports from China. Therefore, stringent rules posed by the government over trade are expected to hinder the freight car market growth during the forecast period.
