Global Locomotive Market Outlook

The global locomotive market size reached a value of around USD 15.04 billion in 2022. During the forecast period of 2023 and 2028, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.1% to reach around USD 25.36 billion by 2028.

 

Key Trends in the Market

Locomotives are the engines that provide railway vehicles the ability to move but they can also carry a payload when necessary, which is ideal in a single locomotive attached to numerous rail vehicles that cannot move independently. 

 

In contrast to freight rail travel, these methods are typically chosen in passenger rail transit networks. Since they provide great performance, have lower maintenance requirements, use less energy, and produce less pollution, electric locomotives are widely recommended.

 

  • The expansion of the global locomotive market is primarily driven by the rise in demand for energy-intensive rolling equipment, rising urbanisation and population, improving developing nations' economies, escalating growth in industrial and mining operations, and expanding rail network.
  • To support the growing demand for public transportation, greater rail networks are providing higher funds for the locomotive industry. Auxiliary control modules, silicon carbide (SiC) modules, and insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) modules are examples of contemporary equipment that contribute significantly to the global market share. By altering the existing state, such technologies help to increase fuel efficiency, decrease pollutants, and lower overall weight, which can minimise power losses.
  • In addition, the growing number of environment-friendly locomotive projects in important nations throughout the globe will create enormous opportunity for the expansion of locomotive market. Government and corporate sector initiatives to design and introduce electricity-powered locomotives will favour the market growth.
  • The market for locomotives will also experience increased technical advancements throughout the projected period, including e-mobility technologies and data-driven maintenance services.

 

Global Locomotive Market Analysis

Based on type, the market is segmented into diesel and electric, among others. The market on the basis of technology can be divided into IGBT module, GTO thyristor, and SIC module. The regional markets for locomotive can be divided into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

 

The comprehensive EMR report provides an in-depth assessment of the market based on the Porter's five forces model along with giving a SWOT analysis. The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the global locomotive market, covering their competitive landscape and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.  

 

  • Alstom
  • Siemens Mobility
  • Wabtec Corporation
  • Toshiba Infrastructure Systems & Solutions Corporation
  • CZ LOKO, A.S.
  • Hyundai Corporation
  • American Locomotive Company
  • Others

 

Market Share by Type

Rapid digitalisation is anticipated to fuel the electric segment's growth throughout the course of the projection period. The segment is expanding as people's preferences for clean, energy-efficient transportation is growing. One of the key trends that will take hold in the locomotive market for electric locomotives during the projected period is the introduction of dual-mode locomotive electric trains. 

 

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has also announced a number of obligatory restrictions involving the reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel engines, which is driving up the demand for electric locomotive engines. Growing government spending on public transportation comfort is likely to enhance demand for locomotives, which is anticipated to drive demand for the electric locomotive segment over the forecast period.

 

Market Share by Region

During the forecast period, it is anticipated that the Asia Pacific region would account for one of the largest locomotive market shares. For the businesses operating in the regional market, the large transportation sector and the steadily expanding number of rail passengers and train travel are likely to present several opportunities. In addition, travellers in key Asian economies like China, India, and Japan choose the railway over all other modes of transportation, providing further impetus to the market. 

 

The market growth in these countries is anticipated to be driven by new rail projects for urban passenger transit as well as the replacement and upkeep of the current fleet. Besides this, the improvement of socio-economic conditions in developing nations like China, India, and Japan, the expansion of rail routes, an increase in the production of rolling stock, the development of rail infrastructure, and the replacement of power conversion systems with more efficient ones are driving the locomotive market growth in the Asia Pacific region.

 

Competitive Landscape

Alstom, with its global headquarters in France, is a leader in the transportation industry. The AGV, Avelia, TGV, Eurostar, and New Pendolino high-speed trains, as well as regional, suburban, and metro trains, and Citadis trams, are all produced by this rolling stock manufacturer, which was founded in 1928 and is active in the passenger transportation, signalling, and locomotives industries.

 

Wabtec Corporation, headquartered in the United States, is a major global supplier of machinery, systems, digital solutions, and value-added services. The scope of Wabtec's operations spans the whole rail sector. The business produces locomotives with a maximum power of 4,000 horsepower and also provides aftermarket services, including maintenance and logistics assistance.

 

Siemens Mobility, a German company, empowers operators to define passenger and freight transportation today with trains, infrastructure, and automation solutions for all rolling stock. It covers trams, commuter and regional trains, light rail, metro, high-speed and extremely high-speed trains, as well as associated services. Siemens Mobility continuously updates its offering in its primary business segments, including rolling stock, turnkey systems, rail automation and electrification, intelligent traffic systems, and related services.

 

Other market players include American Locomotive Company, Toshiba Infrastructure Systems & Solutions Corporation, CZ LOKO, A.S., and Hyundai Corporation, among others.

A small railroad locomotive used for manipulating railroad cars within a rail yard is known as a switcher, shunter, switch engine, yard goat, yard pilot, or shifter.

A locomotive is a unique kind of train car that drives the entire train. The locomotive can move independently by burning fuel, using electricity, magnetic levitation, or other means of energy generation. A train, on the other hand, is a group of linked automobiles that travel down a railroad track while carrying passengers or cargo. Although some trains, like multiple units, can move on their own, locomotives are usually used to pull or push trains.

In rail transportation operations, locomotives are primarily used for switching/shunting, transporting freight trains, and hauling passenger trains.
