The Hyperloop technology market is expected to grow from USD 1.3 billion in 2022 to USD 6.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 47.2%. Reduced travel time and transportation cost, less expensive and minimum infrastructural maintenance, and less land area required to construct a Hyperloop network than other transport modes are some of the major driving factors for the market’s growth during the forecast period.
Hyperloop is expected to be the fastest proposed commute option, running at an average speed of 600 mph. In this mode of transportation, pods travel through vacuum-sealed tubes, reaching a speed of around 500 miles per hour. Hyperloop system enables pods to run at high speeds and have efficient propulsion due to the low air pressure inside the tube, which prevents the outside air friction from limiting the speed of the pod.
A passenger carriage pod is designed to carry only passengers. According to the design or prototype, each capsule or pod would be capable of carrying approximately 40 passengers and traveling at the speed of 760 mph (1,220 kmph). According to the Alpha Document by SpaceX, passenger carriage pods are designed to be 7 feet 4 inches (2.23 meters) in diameter. According to different industry experts, passenger Hyperloop capsules are expected to be operational after freight Hyperloop capsules, considering the possible threats to human health and safety posed by traveling at such high speeds. According to HTT (US), the final operational capsule would be ready for the public in early 2018.
The major vendors in the Hyperloop technology market include Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (US), Hyperloop One (US), DGWHyperloop (India), TransPod, Inc. (Canada), and AECOM (US) among others.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has shown remarkable developments since its inception. The company completed its feasibility study of Hyperloop in 2014 by entering into an agreement for the construction of Hyperloop with Kings County in Quay Valley, California and the Slovakian government in 2015 and 2016 respectively. The company has started the construction of a 5-mile Hyperloop track in 2017. It is expected to test the first passenger commercial Hyperloop system by 2018– 2019. The company is primarily focusing on receiving formal approvals through agreements with the governments of different countries to construct Hyperloop tracks worldwide.
