Hybrid Train Market Size Worth $22.8 Billion By 2030 | CAGR: 5.89%

The global hybrid train market size is expected to reach USD 22.8 billion by 2030, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Hybrid Train Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Propulsion Type (Electro-Diesel, Battery Operated, Hydrogen-Powered, Gas Powered, and Solar Powered); By Application; By Operating Speed; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2022 - 2030” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.


The rising demand for shifting energy and power source from conventional fossil fuels towards renewable, alternative sources of fuel is expected to support the growth of hybrid trains.


Factors such as increases in fuel prices, strict regulation by environmental regulatory authorities to reduce carbon footprint along with demand for energy-efficient alternatives are responsible for the increasing need for hybrid trains in the market. For instance, according to an article published by the VOA, September 2022 reported a sharp increase in fuel prices of up to 30% in Indonesia. The country’s subsidy crossed USD 34 billion from its original energy budget, due to which it had to raise oil prices.


Hybrid trains offer a reasonable alternative causing a preferential shift from conventional trains to hybrid-powered locomotives. For instance, in September 2022, Progress Rail announced its agreement with Rumo, a Brazilian railway, and logistics company. The development ensures two units of diesel-battery-electric trains for freight applications. The features provide the operator with convenience and ease of utility compared to conventional trains. This is anticipated to support the adoption and growth of the market.
