DUBLIN, June 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets( has announced the addition of the "China Rail Transit Air-conditioner Industry Report, 2014-2015" report to their offering.

China's demand of rail transit vehicles for air conditioning comes mainly from three aspectsrailway coaches and locomotives, high-speed EMUs, as well as urban rail transit (metro and light rail).

Railway coaches and locomotives: In 2014, when China's railway jumpstarted a comprehensive reform, including the attempt to introduce non-state capital to carry out railway construction and initiate railway development fund, China's full-year railway investment totaled RMB808.8 billion. In a long time to come, China's fixed investment into railways will keep steady growth, and China's policies for speeding up railway construction will also remain unchanged.

In 2014, the locomotive ownership in China amounted to 21,100 units, an increase of 261 units from a year ago. Among them, the number of high-power CRH locomotives reached 8,423 units, rising 1,406 units on a year-on-year basis. China's railway air-conditioning is mainly used in locomotive cabs and railway coaches. In 2014, the demand of locomotives for air conditioning units in China approximated 1,658 units.

High-speed EMUs: In 2014, the domestic EMU ownership reached 1,411 trains, equivalent to 13,696 units, with the vehicle ownership density being about 0.82 units/km, up from 0.75 units/km in 2013. In 2014, China's air conditioning unit demand from EMUs amounted to 1,030 sets or so.

As of the end of 2014, China's high-speed railway network of four vertical and four horizontal trunk lines had been largely completed. In 2015, the rail lines under construction involve Xuzhou-Lanzhou High-speed Railway, Qingdao-Taiyuan High-Speed Railway, Beijing-Harbin High-Speed Railway, Beijing-Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High-Speed Railway, as well as Shanghai-Kunming High-Speed Railway. In 2014, a total of 10 trunk railway lines to be improved and under development in western regions started construction, and additional 3 lines will start in 2015, all of which would be successively completed during 2018-2020. This will increase China's trunk line mileage, thereby expanding the demand for EMU air conditioning.
