Market Overview:

The global ballast tamper market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for electric and battery-driven ballast tamper machines from the railway industry, especially in developed countries such as North America and Europe. In addition, the growing urbanization and population in developing countries is also contributing to the growth of this market.

Global Ballast Tamper Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A Ballast Tamper is a tool that is used to tamp down or compress ballast, which secures track rails in place.

Electric Driven:

Electric driven tamper is a mechanical device used to impart or remove energy from the ballast tanks. It works on the principle of electromagnetic attraction and repulsion between two conductors which are fixed at both ends and run through the middle of electric driven tamper. The working principle behind it is that when an electric current flows through a conductor, an electromagnetic field is generated around it, this field attracts or repells particles depending upon its position in relation to the current flow.


Battery is the source of energy that is used in vehicles to power the accessories.

1) Engine Start-Stop System (ESS) - This system automatically cuts off the engine when vehicle is stationary, to reduce fuel consumption. It also helps in improving air quality by reducing particulate matter emission. 2) Air Conditioning - This system maintains a constant temperature and humidity level of cabin.

Application Insights:

The heavy rail segment held the largest share of over 70.0% in 2017. The segment is expected to witness significant growth owing to the expansion projects undertaken by railways across various countries including India, China and Japan. For instance, in 2015, Indian Railways announced plans for ¢â€š¹500 billion worth railway infrastructure development over the next five years¢â‚¬â„¢ which includes electrification of all routes that are currently served by diesel locomotives.

Heavy rail systems require ballast tamper devices with higher forces as compared to urban rails as they have larger wheels.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global ballast tamper market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a rise in infrastructure investment over the coming years on account of increasing government spending on urban and heavy rail infrastructure projects. In addition, rising adoption of electric traction by the regional railways for reducing pollution and enhancing passenger comfort is also anticipated to drive product demand over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to be one of the fastest-growing regions owing to rapid growth in railway network across emerging economies including China, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia among others. Moreover, growing investments from governments as well as private players are projected to fuel industry expansion over next eight years or so. For instance; China’s Ministry Of Transport And Ministry Of Railways have announced plans for expanding its rail network which includes construction of new high-speed trains capable running at speeds up to 350 km/h (217 mph).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for ballast tamper in railway industry
  • Growing infrastructure development in emerging countries
  • Rising adoption of automated ballast tamper machines
  • Proliferation of smart railways technologies
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using ballast tamper
