Market Analysis: Global Locomotive Market 

Global locomotive market is expected to register a steady CAGR of 2.79% in the forecast period of 2019-2026. This rise in market value can be attributed to the rise in the levels of expenditure on the advancements modernization of railway systems globally, also high levels of government expenditure to improve and develop rail transport systems for public conveyance.

Market Definition: Global Locomotive Market 

Locomotives can be defined as an engine of railway vehicles which is the power source for their movements, although they are also capable of carrying the payload which is more preferable rather than having an individual locomotive attached to different rail vehicles that cannot move by themselves. These systems are generally preferred in passenger rail transport systems rather than freight.

Market Drivers:

  • Rise in the demand for fuel efficient among growing concerns for the environment; this factor is expected to positively affect the growth of the market
  • Increased demand for advanced power components and modernization in the market leading to lower weight locomotives is expected to positively affect the growth of the market
  • High levels of urbanization leading to enhanced adoption of railway services globally is expected to drive the market growth

Market Restraint:

  • Requirement of large capital funding for the integration and establishment as well as maintenance of railway services are factors restraining the growth of the market
