“Traction transformer market to exhibit moderate growth potential between 2016 and 2022”
The traction transformer market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% between 2016 and 2022 and is likely to be valued at USD 724.2 million by 2022. The key driving factors for the growth of the traction transformer market are the significant government funding for railway infrastructure development, liberalization of rail transport network, and rising concern about carbon emission. However, the major restraining factors for the growth of this market are high cost incurred for the electrification of railway network and dominance of diesel-powered rail engines in certain countries.

“Traction transformer market for electric locomotives expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
The traction transformer market for electric locomotives is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2016 and 2022. The large installed base for passenger and freight locomotive in Europe and APAC and the lower operating cost of electric locomotives compared to diesel and steam locomotive are the key factors driving the growth of the traction transformer market.

“Underframe mounting to hold the largest share of the overall traction transformer market in 2016”
The underframe mounting is expected to hold the largest share of the global traction transformer market in 2016. The underframe mounting of transformers leads to increased space for passenger capacity and their luggage, increased comfort level of passenger, and increased reliability. The electric locomotives majorly use traction transformers that are installed underframe.

“North America to be the fastest-growing market for traction transformer during the forecast period”
