Global Mass Transit released the latest edition of Upcoming Rail Projects in Middle East: Report & Database 2022-2036 in January 2022, which tracks over 55 new and upcoming rail projects, spanning around 4,500 km. These will be developed at an estimated investment of over USD160 billion.

The report includes 2 distinct sections.

Part 1 includes a PPT (converted to PDF document) that provides an analysis of the opportunities in terms of mode (light rail, tram, metrorail, subway, rapid transit, passenger rail, high speed rail, inter-city rail, inter-country rail), development stage (planned, under procurement, pre-construction and under construction), alignment (elevated, underground, at-grade), expected completion (by 2026, between 2027-2031, beyond 2031), cost (less than USD500 million, between USD500 million and USD1 billion, between USD1 billion and USD2 billion, over USD2 billion), railway infrastructure systems (fare system, rolling stock, signaling and communications technology, and track and power), type of developer (PPPs, government funding, multilateral funding), planned investment, and market opportunities (consulting, construction, supply of rolling stock, railway systems, fare systems, and signalling).

It also provides information on investment trends and new funding sources, impact of COVID-19 on upcoming projects, growth drivers, key high investment projects, recent developments, and risks and challenges.
