The global traction transformers market is currently witnessing a healthy growth. A traction transformer is an electronic device that transfers energy from one circuit to another through electromagnetic induction. It is a crucial component of the electric traction mechanism, which consists of direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) systems. It is commonly used in high-speed and passenger trains, locomotives, trams and metro rails. The device is mounted inside the machine room of the locomotive, on top or under the roof to obtain maximum reliability and flexibility of multiphase and single systems. In comparison to traditionally used variants, traction transformers significantly aid in reducing operating costs, are lightweight and can provide higher power output.
The growth of the high-speed rail sector and significant advancements in railway infrastructure are among the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the rapid electrification of rail networks is expected to increase the demand for traction transformers across the globe. The governments of emerging nations are implementing favorable policies to improve the existing transportation facilities and optimize rail systems. Widespread adoption of traction transformers in both traditional and next-generation locomotives to support faster-commuting networks, the rapidly increasing number of passengers and diversifying travel routes are further driving the product demand. In addition to this, growing awareness regarding the utilization of energy-efficient products for reducing the environmental damage caused by outdated technologies is resulting in the increasing adoption of AC transformers worldwide. Also, since these transformers are not dependent on conventional sources of energy, such as crude oil and coal, they offer an eco-friendly and convenient solution. Other factors, including innovations to develop equipment with minimal noise, carbon emissions, power losses and operating costs, are projected to create a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to expand at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2020-2025.
