Electric traction is a highly advantageous substitute to conventional fossil fuel-based traction systems. The traction transformer is an integral part of the electric traction system. Traction transformers present on-board the trains and rolling stock transform the high voltage from the overhead catenary into low usable voltage for the traction motors.

The traction transformer is divided into three major segments based on type, namely, tap changing, tapped, and rectifier. Tapped transformers contribute the maximum revenue (89.5% in 2013) to the traction transformer market as they are being used in locomotives and high speed trains due to their higher power rating. Tap-changing traction transformers are mainly used in EMUs and rectifier traction transformers are used for the propulsion of trams and trolley cars and the other urban transit systems.

Traction transformers are mainly used in four kinds of rolling stock:

  • High-Speed Trains
  • Electric Locomotives
  • Electric Multiple Units (EMUs)
  • Trams

Typically, the traction transformers used in high-speed trains and electric locomotives require a high power rating (>5.5 MVA). EMUs are run at medium power rating and trams are generally run on DC traction systems.

As the congestion of the road and airways is becoming a major transportation concern for many developing and developed countries, governments are looking at projects like high-speed trains and tramways to ease this pressure. Thus, the market is a key component of the overall growth of the rail transport industry.
North America, Latin America, Australia, and Africa will be the potential markets for traction transformers in future. Though building rail infrastructure in Africa will take time, the other regions can be looked upon as a solid market for the solid state transformers, which are used in traction transformers.

The growth rate of traction transformers in high speed trains has been above average in the last five years and its unit shipments have been forecasted to grow from 315 units in 2013 to 541 units in 2018 at a CAGR of 11.43% from 2013 to 2018.

The global rail traction transformer revenue market is expected to grow from $1.17 billion in 2013 to $1.69 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 7.52%. In terms of revenue, the electric locomotive market for traction transformers is the largest, but shipment-wise, EMUs are the major contributors. This is mainly because the electric locomotive traction transformer market is a high revenue market while EMU traction transformer market is a high volume market. The global unit shipment market is expected to grow from 6,031 units in 2013 to 8,507 units in 2018 at a CAGR of 7.12%. The average selling price (ASP) of a traction transformer for high speed trains and electric locomotives is generally higher than that for EMUs and trams.

This report also segments the global market by geography considering four segments - the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (ROW). The market is highly geography specific, with Europe leading the pack due to its early acceptance of the electric traction technology. U.S. is the biggest potential market in the Americas due to the current (2013) low electrification adoption rate. APAC is an emerging market due to its high population density and is growing at a CAGR of 8.14% from 2013 to 2018 in terms of revenue.

The Power Electronic Traction Transformer (Solid-State Traction Transformer) is being called the “fourth revolution” in traction technology. The market is moving towards power electronic traction transformers (PETT), which use power electric components instead of the usual components and this is a major opportunity for the market in the future.

The major companies involved in this market include ABB (Switzerland), Siemens AG (Germany) and Alstom SA (France). ABB is the market leader with over fifty percent market share.

Traction transformers have been used for railway traction since the 1900s. ABB Group (Switzerland) was one of the first manufacturers of traction transformers in the early 1900s (1900-1920). By the 1920s, the other players like Brush Transformers Co. ltd. (U.K.) also joined the fray and traction transformers were gradually grabbing some market share from the conventional fuel-based traction systems.

Advantages of Electric Traction:

  • Lower running cost of locomotives and electric multiple units
  • Higher power-to-weight ratio, resulting in
    • Fewer locomotives
    • Faster acceleration
    • Higher practical limit of power
    • Higher limit of speed
  • Less noise pollution (quieter operation)
  • Lower power loss at higher altitudes
  • Lack of dependence on crude oil as fuel

In this report, the market is defined to include all the transformers aboard all rolling stock of the world. In this case, rolling stock comprises all the vehicles that move on a railway line including locomotives, high-speed trains, EMUs, trams, trolleybuses & wagons. The type segmentation for the market is broadly divided into three groups; tap changing, tapped, and rectifier. High-speed trains and powerful locomotives generally use tapped traction transformers. Tap changing traction transformers are commonly used in EMUs and rectifier traction transformers are used in trams and the other DC traction systems.

This report describes the market trends, drivers, and challenges of the traction transformer market and forecasts the market to 2018. The report segments the market on the basis of type, rolling stock, voltage network, and geography. Further, it contains revenue forecasting, and analyzing trends with respect to the market. Applications of the market are split into four major types by rolling stock, namely high-speed trains, electric locomotives, EMUs, and trams. The geographical analysis contains the in-depth classification for the Americas, Europe, and APAC. The sections and the sub-segments in the report would contain drivers, restraints, opportunities, current market trends, winning imperatives, and burning issues of the global market.

The major companies involved in this market include ABB (Switzerland), Siemens AG (Germany) and Alstom SA (France). ABB is the market leader with over 50% of market share.
