Traction transformer is a vital component of a rolling stock. It is an integral part of an electric traction system in the vehicle and helps in the smooth movement of motors used in such as locomotives, high-speed trains, and trams. Owing to their applications, the stresses on traction transformers are high and needs to be considered while designing and deployment. Additional considerations include space and vibration. Traction systems can be broadly segmented into: AC systems and DC systems with majorly used systems are: 25 kV AC 50 Hz, 15 kV AC 16 2/3 Hz, 3 kV DC, 1.5 kV DC, and 1.2 kV DC.
In terms of system, it is estimated that market for AC systems and EMUs will witness the highest growth.
Drivers for this market include government funding and liberalization of rail transport. However, social issues associated with rail projects such as land acquisition may indirectly hamper the market.
This report identifies the global traction transformer market size in for the year 2014-2016, and forecast of the same for year 2021. It also highlights the potential growth opportunities in the coming years, while also reviewing the market drivers, restraints, growth indicators, challenges, market dynamics, competitive landscape, and other key aspects with respect to Traction Transformer market.
Geographically, Europe estimated to be the largest market for traction transformers with rail electrification as a major driver. The U.S. is the biggest potential market in the Americas owing to the low adoption rate of electrification. Asia Pacific is an emerging market for traction transformers due to its high population density. Among all the types, tapped traction transformer has the highest market share in global traction transformer market.
