Global Hybrid Train Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.3% During 2024-2032, Driven by the Increasing Demand for Eco-Friendly and Energy-Efficient Rail Operations

Global Hybrid Train Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Hybrid Train Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% in the forecast period of 2024-2032.

The market for hybrid train is being driven by the increasing demand for eco-friendly and energy-efficient rail operations. Railway operators and freight companies are adopting trains that are both efficient and environmentally friendly. Hybrid trains have piqued the interest of freight companies looking to reduce operating costs by eliminating fuel and maintenance costs. In the freight industry, the total cost of ownership (TCO) significantly impacts profit margins. When travelling long distances with conventional diesel trains, fuel costs are high. The use of electrified, fuel cell, CNG, or LNG hybrid trains, on the other hand, reduces these costs by nearly half. Increasing the modal share of railways is thought to be a cost-effective way to increase the use of renewable energy in transportation, and, thus, lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore, the hybrid train industry is expected to grow as a result of these factors. Furthermore, governments in various countries have imposed strict emission standards, forcing manufacturers to adopt new, less polluting hybrid train technology.


In September 2021, Roy Hill, an iron ore mining, rail, and port operation in Western Australia, announced the purchase of Wabtec’s (NYSE: WAB) FLXdrive battery-electric locomotive, the world’s first 100% battery-powered locomotive built in Erie. Under the agreement, Roy Hill will receive the latest version of the FLXdrive battery-electric locomotive in 2023, which is expected to have a 7 megawatt hours (MWh) of energy capacity. The locomotive is intended to be used in conjunction with one or more diesel locomotives to form a hybrid train. Such developments are expected to positively aid the market in the coming years.
