The global hybrid train market size reached US$ 14.4 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 19.6 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.01% during 2023-2028.
Hybrid train is a locomotive transportation medium that is powered by an on-board rechargeable energy storage system (RESS), in combination with other fuel, such as diesel. They are located between power source and traction transmission system that are directly connected with wheels to promote smooth operations. They further use various energy storing devices, including supercapacitors, flywheels, and batteries, to sustain additional energy produced from regenerative braking. As compared to conventional fuel trains, hybrid trains are more reliable, emission-free, noise-free, cost-effective, and eco-friendly. At present, hybrid trains are commercially available in solar-powered, compressed natural gas (CNG), battery-operated, and electro-diesel propulsion types.
Hybrid Train Market Trends:
The widespread adoption of the hybrid train as a cost-effective, sustainable, and reliable mode of transportation can be attributed to the increasing scarcity of natural resources and the hiking fuel prices. This represents the key factor primarily driving the market growth. Furthermore, the emerging trend of green transportation solutions, along with the introduction of stringency policies by governments of various nations to promote the uptake of alternative fuel-powered trains, such as hybrid trains that meet the required emission and efficiency standards, are propelling the market growth. Conventional fuel-powered trains generate various hazardous gases, including nitrogen dioxide (NO) and carbon dioxide (CO2), which is responsible for causing various ecological and health issues. In line with this, freight companies are increasingly participating in frequent mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to collectively invest in hybrid trains, thus helping them in cutting down operating costs, including fuel and maintenance. Moreover, the incorporation of lithium-ion batteries in hybrid trains to ensure minimal power consumption, improved voltage capacity, longer charge retention is contributing to the market growth. Other factors, such as rapid urbanization, expansion in construction activities to strengthen transportation infrastructure, and increasing railway connectivity, are positively stimulating the market growth.
