According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Railway Traction Motor Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global railway traction motor market size reached US$ 6.9 Billion in 2022. A railway traction motor is an electric motor used to provide propulsion power to a train or locomotive. It is responsible for converting electrical energy into mechanical energy to drive the wheels of the train and propel it forward. It is a crucial component of electric and diesel-electric locomotives, as well as electric multiple units (EMUs) and electric trains. It is controlled by sophisticated power electronics systems that regulate the motor's speed and torque output. It enables regenerative braking, a feature that recovers and converts a portion of the train's kinetic energy back into electrical energy during braking. This energy can be fed back into the power grid or stored in onboard energy storage systems, thus improving overall energy efficiency.
Global Railway Traction Motor Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by the rapid electrification of railways. This can be attributed to the increasing investments in electrifying the existing rail lines and building new electrified lines to reduce emissions, increase energy efficiency, and improve overall operational performance. Moreover, the expansion of high-speed rail networks in various countries is another driver for the railway traction motor market as high-speed trains require powerful and efficient traction motors to achieve the necessary speeds. Also, the increasing demand for high-speed rail connectivity is fueling the demand for advanced traction motors that are capable of meeting the performance requirements of high-speed trains. Additionally, with the aging of existing rail networks and rolling stock fleets are aging, there has been a growing need for modernization and upgrades. Retrofitting older locomotives with electric or diesel-electric propulsion systems, including traction motors, is a cost-effective way to enhance performance, reduce emissions, and improve fuel efficiency, which is significantly supporting the market on the global level. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 8.8 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 4% during 2023-2028.
