The market for railway traction motors is being driven by the increasing efforts of governments and key players to facilitate the shift towards eco-friendly modes of transportation. The emerging technology “Hydrail” or hydrogen rail, which is run on hydrogen fuel cells, is a more sustainable and efficient alternative for rail transportation. In October 2022, H2 OEL, or hydrogen zero-emissions locomotive, which powers its electric traction motors with hydrogen fuel cells, made its first run. The successful run of this locomotive marks a substantial step towards potentially substituting diesel-electric locomotives with the technology.

Further, the Canadian Pacific is partnering with the Alberta government to construct two more locomotives, apart from H2 OEL, and expects them to start functioning in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary by the year-end of 2033. Additionally, investments in railway infrastructure are continuously increasing, especially in developing economies of Asia Pacific. Urbanization, economic growth, and a huge population are the key factors that are propelling investments in railways.

For instance, the Central Government of India permitted the execution of a 235 km semi-high speed rail corridor in Maharashtra between Pune and Nashik in 2021. The rising investments in railways are driving the demand for railway traction motors as these models promote fuel and energy efficiency. The aforementioned market propellants are catalyzing market growth.
