The railway segment is a key segment of the electric traction motor market, by application, from 2018 to 2023. The market for this segment is driven by increasing investments in metro systems and high-speed trains to reduce the traffic congestion and improve transport services. Need to upgrade aging rail infrastructure is leading to the increased demand for rolling stock applications. This, in turn, is causing the rise in demand for electric traction motors that would significantly boost the efficiency of rapid transit rail cars, light rail vehicles, and freight locomotives.

AC electric traction motor market segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate from 2018 to 2023. This is due to various factors, including high efficiency and low maintenance cost compared to DC electric traction motor. AC electric traction motors are widely used in railway trains, electric vehicles, elevators, conveyors, and industrial machinery, including drilling rigs. Improved speed performance, due to variable frequency drive and high starting torque, is expected to drive the AC segment of the electric traction motor market.

The <200 kW segment of the electric traction motor market, by power rating, is estimated to grow at the fastest rate from 2018 to 2023. Factors such as growing investments in application areas such as electric cars, electric two-wheelers, and light rail transit are the reasons for the large share of electric traction motors with a power rating of <200 kW in the market.
