Global Traction Equipment Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

The term traction equipment refers to any device or mechanism used to create or enhance the grip between a vehicle and the surface on which it travels. This can include devices such as snow chains, all-weather tires, and mud flaps. Traction equipment is important for two reasons: first, it helps keep vehicles from slipping and sliding in slippery conditions; second, it can help provide extra power and stability to moving vehicles.

Traction Transformer:

Traction transformer is a device used to step up or step down the voltage levels of electric power. It is mainly used in railway systems, where it helps in moving the trains from one track to another without any hindrance. The primary function of a traction transformer is to provide electrical power for propulsion and heating purposes for the train.

The global traction transformer market size was valued at USD 856 million in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.

Traction Motor:

Traction motor is a device, which aids to move the vehicle or equipment by means of wheels. It is used in traction equipment such as railway locomotive and trucking vehicles among others. The global traction motor market size was valued at USD 5,800 million in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

Application I is anticipated to dominate the global traction equipment market in terms of revenue share at over 40.0% by 2030. Application II includes Application I and application III which are heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs) and light commercial vehicles (LCVs). LCV segment held the largest share in 2017 owing to increasing demand for trucks, vans, and cars from various industries such as food & beverage, retail, healthcare etc. HCV segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period due to its increased capacity for carrying heavy loads on a long distance journey with low maintenance cost as compared with other vehicle types.

The growing construction industry across regions coupled with rising demand from automotive manufacturers for new technologies that can provide clean energy is expected to drive electric motor drives in traction equipment applications over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for electric traction equipment in countries, such as India and China. In addition, growing investments by governments in these regions are likely to boost the demand for heavy commercial vehicles that require advanced traction systems, thereby driving the global market growth.

Europe accounted for over 25% of revenue share in 2017 on account of presence of prominent manufacturers coupled with high adoption rate of latest technologies across major countries including Germany and France among others. Moreover, growing trend towards electrification across various applications is anticipated to drive product demand over next eight years.

North America held a significant share due its large number of manufacturing facilities present in U S A.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for electric vehicles
  • Growing construction and infrastructure activities
  • Rising adoption of mechanized farming practices
  • Proliferation of online retail platforms
  • Growing popularity of leasing and renting services
