Dynamics of the Global Traction Motors Market

The key driver of the global market for traction motors is their extensive application in the automotive and machinery sector. Besides this, the growth of global traction motors is also influenced by factors such as

  • Rising demand for efficient power conversion

Under normal conditions, traction motors are efficient in converting a majority of the electrical power into mechanical energy, which assists the locomotive operations such as dynamic braking.

  • Increasing electrification of automobiles

The demand for electric vehicles (EVs) has gained considerable traction in the automotive industry. As a result, there is a subsequent upsurge in the demand for EV traction motors.

  • Varying emission standards

Technological developments owing to the changing emission regulations have generated the demand for engines with reduced emissions. This is steering the demand for more enhanced and fuel-efficient traction motors in the global market.

The only constraints reshaping the dynamics of the market include the operational glitches of traction motors. The overheating of traction motors is one of the major restraints hampering the growth of the global market. The insulation breakdown and the commutation malfunctions are also observed as the factors limiting the adoption of traction motors.
