GLOBAL TRACTION MOTOR MARKET FORECAST 2021-2028

Inkwood Research anticipates that the global traction motor market will reach $33770.78 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 14.55% during the forecast period. The base year considered for the market study is 2020, and the forecast years are from 2021 to 2028. 

Traction motors are a subcategory of electric motors, mainly used for the translation motion of a vehicle or a machine. The most common and widely used traction motors include the ones used in railways. Also, they play a significant role in applications such as elevators. Currently, due to technological advancements, industrial vehicles and electric vehicles use traction motors to power their motion. Moreover, various types of traction motors, such as DC motors, AC motors, and synchronous motors, are also covered in the report.

Key factors driving the global traction motor market growth:

  • Growth in the railway industry
  • Railways capture around 40% of the traction motors’ market share.
  • Railways are one of the most efficient forms of transportation. They are also considered critical infrastructure, from a country’s economic point of view.
  • Traction motors have multiple benefits, such as power efficiency, compact design, durability, and low maintenance costs, which aids its adoption in the railways.
  • Increased demand for low emission technology
  • Growing demand from electric vehicles

On the negative side, key factors limiting the market growth are:

  • Increased prices of raw materials
  • Traction motors are subject to high temperatures resulting from friction between components, as well as elements that travel rapidly.
  • As a result, the materials used for their manufacture are also sturdy, robust, and of fine quality.
  • However, the cost of such materials is high, thereby restricting the market for traction motors
  • Higher investment cost for the market

The report scope of the global traction motor market covers segmentation analysis of type, power rating, and application:

Market by Type:

  • AC Traction Motor
  • The AC traction motor segment is projected to dominate the type category.
  • AC traction motor is a variable frequency drive motor, with an extensive application in different industries and across the transportation sector. 
  • The increased application is attributed to the better traction offered by AC motors as compared to DC motors, higher reliability, and reduced maintenance requirements.
  • Based on the motors used for traction, such as asynchronous or induction, they can be designed and manufactured for application-specific machinery and automotive.
  • DC Traction Motor
  • Synchronous Motor

Geographically, the global traction motor market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which includes:

  • North America: The United States and Canada
  • Europe: The United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Russia, Belgium, Poland, and Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific: China, Japan, India, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia & New Zealand, and Rest of Asia Pacific
  • The Asia Pacific is set to lead the global market, during the forecast period.
  • The majority of the Asia Pacific’s demand for traction motors is generated from China.
  • For instance, the country captured 38.87% of the market share in 2020, thereby evidently driving the region’s market growth.
  • Emerging and developing economies such as Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and India depict promising trends across the region.
  • The rapidly growing industrial sector and the increased demand from the growing population base as well as businesses are expected to augment the market in the Asia Pacific. 
  • Furthermore, numerous companies such as Hitachi, Hyundai, CRRC, and Toshiba operate effectively in the Asia Pacific and offer a diversified product range of traction motors, leading to market growth.
  • Rest of World: Latin America, the Middle East & Africa

Major players operating in the global traction motor market:

  • ABB
  • Siemens
  • Ametek 
  • Eaton
  • Mitsubishi Electric
  • Others

Key strategies adopted by some of these companies:

In September 2020, Hitachi Automotive Electric Motor Systems Ltd floated a company named Hitachi Automotive Electric Motor Systems America, Inc. In January 2020, American traction systems launched The ATS HERMES Inverter. Moreover, in September 2020, Mitsubishi Electric received a contract from BEML, an Indian company, for propulsion equipment for 80 new cars for its Delhi Metro.

Key trends of the global traction motor market:

  • Cost benefits associated with the production and the aftermarket services enable market growth.
  • Traction motors considerably improve the machine’s performance.
  • Rising investments in research and development present the market with several opportunities.

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the market differently, for each application. However, the industrial vehicles segment was majorly affected.
The United States is set to capture the largest market share.
Indonesia is the key investment pocket for the global traction motor market.
