The train battery market, by value, is projected to grow to USD 378 million by 2030 from USD 277 million in 2023, at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2023 to 2030. The base year for the report is 2022 and the forecast period is from 2023 to 2030. The growth of train battery can be attributed to factors such as increasing urbanization and growing demand for sustainable transportation in developing as well as developed countries. The rising urbanization and growing demand for sustainable transport ultimately driving the expenditure for railway expansions. In addition to this, the expansion of railways will require higher energy density storage system which will drive the demand for train batteries in coming years.
The train battery market is dominated by players such as Saft (France), Enersys (US), Exide Industries (India), GS Yuasa Corporation (Japan), Amara Raja Batteries Ltd (India), and Hoppecke Batterien Gmbh & Co. Kg (Germany. These companies have developed new products, adopted expansion strategies; and undertaken collaborations, partnerships, and mergers & acquisitions to gain traction in the growing train battery market.
