China's demand of rail transit vehicles for air conditioning comes mainly
from three aspects—railway 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.
Urban rail transit (metro and light rail): As of the end of March 2015, there
were a total of 39 cities that had been approved to construct urban rail transit
lines. Among them, 90 subway lines from the said 22 cities had been put into
operation, with a total mileage of 2,827 kilometers. Thus, this helped fuel
China’s demand for rail transit vehicles, which in turn expanded their demand
for air-conditioning. In 2014, the market size of rail transit air-conditioning
totaled about 11,814 sets.
As of the end of April 2015, the cities such as Luoyang, Hohhot, Xiangyang,
Huainan, and Jiujiang were also mapping out the construction of urban rail
transit. In future, an increasing number of medium-sized cities will construct
rail transit, which would give an impetus to air conditioning demand in this
In terms of overall market segments, China’s demand for rail transit
air-conditioning will come mainly from high-speed EMUs and urban rail transit.
By contrast, the demand from railway coaches and locomotives will decline to
From the perspective of rail transit air-conditioning manufacturers, with high
production qualification requirements (must obtain products test certificates
and operational reports), China’s rail transit air-conditioning unit
manufacturers mainly include Shijiazhuang King Transportation Equipment, ZRJC,
and Shanghai Faiveley.
As the technical partner of Mitsubishi Electric, Shijiazhuang King
Transportation Equipment has an annual capacity of around 12,000 sets of rail
transit air-conditioning units. Its major clients consist of CRRC, Mitsubishi,
Alston, and Bombardier, etc. ZRJC mainly manufactures special air conditioning
for locomotives, with its products widely used in railway coaches, subway, and
other rail transit vehicles, which therefore has great advantages in locomotive
air conditioning. Its major customers include CRRC, Siemens, and Alston, etc,
Shanghai Faiveley Rail Vehicle Equipment Co., Ltd. is mainly engaged in
production of air conditioning units for urban rail transit and coaches, with
its technologies from its parent company—Shanghai Faiveley Group. Its major
clients are comprised of CRRC and Bombardier.
