A new overview

Hitachi Rail STS has undertaken a strategic business overview in recent months. Key factors to address have been slower market growth, changing competition and new future trends

Flat market

Our assumption for the coming five years is basically flat growth, with  an annual average addressable market of €15.4bn. 


Against this flat background Hitachi Rail STS has the potential to exceed the market on the basis of its favourable geographic and business mix.


We shall put projects at the centre of our business. Whilst strengthening our domestic markets there are four areas in particular of future focus.

Future focus areas

  • Turnkey projects accessing PPP financing are expected to become increasingly relevant
  • O&M for Turnkey is expected to grow faster than the average market
  • Technology – ERTMS, CBTC will be differentiators
  • Enablers – automation, digital, satellite, Hitachi technologies
