High demographic growth and urbanization

As per the United Nations (UN) statistics experts, the world population is expected to cross the 10 billion mark by 2050. Close to half of that population is expected to be residing in the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and APAC where population growth would be more than threefold. In these nations, railways is a well-suited means of mass transportation of passengers and freight. The combination of economic and on-going population growth will motivate more than half of the world’s population to live in cities and towns. This is likely to increase the level of urbanization by 2050 to approximately 66% from its current 54%. Most of this growth is expected to occur in Africa and Asia.
