The electric traction motor market is estimated to be USD 12.41 Billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 18.10% to reach USD 28.51 Billion by 2023. Growing demand from the railway sector and the increasing production of electric vehicles, mainly in Asia Pacific and European region, are the key factors driving the market during the forecast period.

The report segments the electric traction motor market, by type, into AC and DC. AC is the fastest growing segment in the market in 2017. The AC electric traction motor market is mainly driven by the increasing investment in railways and electric vehicles.

The global electric traction motor market, by power rating, has been segmented into <200 kW, 200 kW to 400 kW, and >400 kW. The <200 kW segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Electric traction motors with a power rating <200 kW are widely used in electric vehicles and light rail vehicles such as trams, mono rail, and others. Need for decarbonizing transport sector and increasing investments in the light rail vehicles are expected to drive the market for electric traction motors with rate power <200 kW during the forecast period.

The report further segments the electric traction motor market, by application, into railway, electric vehicles, and others. The electric vehicle segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The demand for electric vehicles is increasing in order to reduce the emissions and to the increase efficiency of the vehicles by decreasing the dependence on internal combustion engines.

In this report, the electric traction motor market has been analyzed with respect to five regions, namely, Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period due to increased investments in railway sector, mainly in India and countries in South-East Asia, and the rising demand for electric vehicles in countries such as China and Japan to reduce carbon emission. The figure given below shows the projected market sizes of various regions with their respective CAGRs for 2023.

Electric Traction Motor Market

The major factor restraining the growth of the electric traction motor market is the fluctuation in the prices of raw materials such as copper, aluminium, and permanent magnets, which are mainly required for manufacturing electric traction motors such as induction motor and permanent magnet motor.
