Railway Traction Motor Market Statistics 2030 -

The global railway traction motor market was valued at $31.44 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $48.72 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.4% from 2021 to 2030.

A traction motor in railways constitutes an electric motor that converts electrical energy into torque energy, and it is connected to a shaft, resulting in linear motion. Traction motors are powered by electricity and generate the power to rotate the wheels of the train. The turning force produced by traction motors is transmitted to the wheels via the driving gear unit and axle. Traction motors are typically mounted in the railway rolling stocks where the wheels are housed. Reduced number of components for fewer items requiring maintenance and reduced frequency. Completely sealed structure and improved accessory devices such as cooling fans help keep noise levels low in railway traction motors.

Railway-Traction-Motor-Market-2021-2030

The growth of the global railway traction motor market is driven by incorporation of traction motors in railway engines, lower emission, low manufacturing & maintenance cost and reduction in loss in performance.

The railway traction motor market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. By type, the market is categorized into DC traction motor, AC traction motor and synchronous AC traction motor. By application, it is classified into diesel locomotive, electric multiple units, electric locomotives and diesel-electric locomotives. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Key players profiled in the railway traction motor market report include ABB Group, Saini Group, ALSTOM, Bombardier, BHEL, Hyundai Rotem Company, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Siemens AG, Sulzer Ltd. and VEM Group.

Incorporation of traction motors in railway engines

Railway is a preferred choice and more economical for mass transportation of goods and products for longer distances as compared to roadways. Further, performance of railway engines and motors has increased in terms of speed and safety of the locomotives, owing to technological advancements. In addition, versatile benefits of traction motors, such as compact design, power efficiency, durability, and low maintenance costs, fuel their adoption in the railways. Thus, traction motors have become a significant component in railway locomotives. Moreover, the popularity of metro locomotives, especially in urban areas, is also projected to drive the demand for railway traction motors during the forecast period.

Low manufacturing and maintenance cost

The popularity and wide application of electric motors in various application industries has led to easy availability of sophisticated semiconductors, powerful magnets, and other components such as casing. Further, the multiple application of traction motors in locomotives, multiple electric units, and heavy machineries in industrial and OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) has eased the cost of production and maintenance associated with railway traction motors. In addition, the electrical and magnetism principles governing the working of these traction motors have simplified their construction and assembling compared to other conventional power sources, lowering the costs associated with manufacturing and maintenance. Thus, the cost benefits associated with production and aftermarket services of railway traction motors is anticipated to drive the market growth over the next few years.

Rise in price of materials used for production

Traction motors are subjected to extreme temperatures, resulting from friction between fast-moving components and parts. Hence, materials used for their production are often durable, strong, and of fine quality.

Similarly, other industries such as automotive, aerospace, and industrial also require fine quality of raw materials, resulting in increase in prices of metals and other materials required for production. In addition, unstable exchange rates of foreign currencies have inflated prices for traction motor manufacturers. Thus, rise in prices of materials used for production is expected to fuel the growth of the global railway traction motors market in the projected years.
