Global Traction Motor Market 2023 to 2028: Driven by Growing Demand in Construction and Transportation Sectors

Dublin, Sept. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Traction Motor Market - Forecasts from 2023 to 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global traction motor market was valued at USD 13.833 billion in 2021. Traction motors are electric motors used to propel various types of vehicles, including locomotives, electric or hydrogen cars, electric multiple units, elevators, and roller coasters.

The market is expected to grow due to rising demand for high-performance electric traction motors, government regulations and subsidies supporting electric vehicles, and an increase in railway electrification projects. Growing demand for electric vehicles and increased construction investments are expected to drive demand for traction motors.

Key Market Trends and Drivers

Several key trends and drivers are contributing to the growth of the global traction motor market:

  1. Growing Infrastructure and Construction Investments: The demand for traction motors, especially DC series motors, is increasing in the construction sector due to their use in heavy-duty applications such as electric locomotives, steel rolling mills, hoists, lifts, and cranes. Government investments in construction projects, such as infrastructure development, are expected to boost demand for traction motors. China's authorization of 26 infrastructure projects with completion dates projected for 2023 and the increase in significant infrastructure projects in various countries are driving the market.
  2. Rising Demand in the Transportation Sector: The need for transportation is expanding rapidly, leading to increased usage of traction motors in electric trolley buses and railway networks. Traction motors play a crucial role in railway transportation due to their strong torque and precise speed control. Government investments in railway electrification and infrastructure are boosting the market.
  3. Asia Pacific Dominance: The Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the market due to increased construction investments and the production of electric vehicles for transportation. The region has witnessed a significant increase in bus and coach production, particularly in India and China. Indian railways' electrification efforts and plans for high-speed trains are driving the market in the region.
