Global Train Battery Market: Overview

From past few years, search for alternatives of fuel is growing for reducing its import and cost which is leading to increased investment in the railway electrification projects. Additionally, diesel engines are not economical due to their high maintenance costs. Also, the diesel-based engine is harmful to the environment which is creating a need for the electrification of railways. These factors are influencing positively on the growth of the global train battery market.

Train battery market could be segmented into battery technology, locomotive type, application, advanced trains, and region. Based on the battery technology, the market could be segmented into gel tubular, valve regulated lead acid, conventional lead-acid, sinter PNE, fiber PNE, pocket plate, and lithium ion. Based on the locomotive type, the market is segmented into diesel locomotive, diesel multiple units, electric locomotive, electric multiple units, metros, bullet train, light monorail, passenger coaches, and freight wagon. Based on the application, the market could be segmented into engine starter and auxiliary functions. Based on the advanced trains, the market could be segmented into the hybrid locomotive, autonomous train, and battery operated train.
