Based on the type of system deployed, the global traction equipment market is studied for the following segments:

  • DC Traction
  • AC Traction
  • Multi Systems 

Traction Equipment Market

Among the considered system units, multi systems are the most prominently used railway traction systems. Due to regional variation in railway electrification systems, trains often have to pass through one system to other during transit. Change of locomotives at switching stations is the most common way of attaining this. However, such switching stations have highly sophisticated components that are expensive for both installation and maintenance. Due to this, railway systems worldwide are rapidly adopting multi-system units that can operate at several voltage ranges. The adoption of multi systems is the highest in Europe where two, three or four system locomotives are commonly used for cross-frontier freight. Installation of multi systems has enabled passing from one electrification system to another without stoppage and at lower costs.

Based on type of components used, the global traction equipment market is segmented as follows:

  • Traction Transformers
  • Traction Motors
  • Traction Converters

Traction Equipment Market

The overall trends in the traction equipment market are majorly driven by evolving technologies and the market is fragmented in nature. The degree of competition in this market is chiefly determined offering cost effective and high efficiency solutions for long-term sustenance. Overall, the demand for traction equipment is anticipated to be the highest in emerging economies of Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa, where intensive investment and funding are being siphoned for upgrading transportation infrastructure. Among the considered equipment type, traction motors dominate the overall market with a revenue share of over 75% in 2016. These equipment are widely used in both electric and diesel locomotives and are often customized as per the unique locomotive requirements. Furthermore, traction transformers and convertors are widely used across electric units and traction substations and the demand for these components is anticipated to further escalate in the light of upgrades and electrification of railway lines worldwide.

Geographically, the global traction equipment market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.

Traction Equipment Market

With an approximate revenue share of 40% in 2016, Asia Pacific is the largest market for traction equipment. Asia Pacific market is anticipate to retain its dominance through the forecast period and present lucrative expansion opportunities for solution providers. This market is majorly driven by growing government funding for upgrade and expansion of railway infrastructure in the emerging economies in the region. Building of transcontinental cargo in China to enhance trade opportunities with Europe is one such opportunistic example. Total electrification of railways in countries such as India and expansion of light transit system in Australia will present further investment opportunities for the global players in Asia Pacific market. On the other hand, Europe is the oldest and matured market for traction equipment. With constant upgrading of continental transit systems and current prevalence of multi voltage systems in the region, the demand for multi systems is anticipated to drive the Europe traction equipment market through the forecast period.

The detailed regional classification of the traction equipment market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. & Canada)
  • Europe (U.K., Spain, Italy, Germany, Russia, France Rest of Europe)
  • Asia Pacific (China, India, Japan, Australia and Rest of Asia Pacific)
  • Middle East and Africa (GCC and Rest of Middle East and Africa)
  • Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of Latin America)
