Global Hybrid Train Market: Overview 

The first high speed hybrid train was introduced in Europe in 2018. As per studies, such trains can reduce harmful emissions by 50%. 

The hybrid train technology is developed by Japan’s multinational conglomerate company, Hitachi.. According to the company, the train is equipped with an engine which is powered by battery-assisted diesel-electric machines. Governments across the globe are making investments to improve and develop their railway infrastructure. This increasing investment will make way for opportunities for the market players who are operating the hybrid train market. Opportunities such as these can expand their geographical presence along with streaming their revenue. 

According to the Association of American Railroads, in 2009, during the Great Recession, the large freight railway traffic was going down by 19%. And now, after a decade the railroads have become more fuel-efficient for freight. The North American market is more into railway freight transportation, while the European market is more likely to experience gradual development in terms of passenger transits.
