Market Monitoring


Below you will find the Eighth IRG-Rail Market Monitoring report, covering data for 2018 and previous years from 31 European countries.

In the 2020 IRG-Rail report, particular emphasis has been placed on three topics: i) competitive situation in the rail passenger and freight markets, ii) barriers to entry in the railway markets, and iii) direct competition in the rail passenger market.

The Eighth Annual Market Monitoring report is presented in two documents: the Main Report which presents overall results at the European level, and the Working Document in which country specific detail is provided. Data used to build graphics are also available.
