The global train battery market size is expected to reach USD 769.24 million by 2030 according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Train Battery Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Advance Train (Autonomous Trains, Hybrid Locomotives, Fully Battery-operated Trains); By Battery Type; By Application; By Technology; By Rolling Stock; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2022 – 2030” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.
The market is expected to grow as a result of factors including increased urbanization in both developing and developed economies, rising demand for rails with minimal maintenance requirements, development of hybrid rail systems, electrification of rails, and growth in demand for rail development. During the forecast period, the demand for energy storage systems is anticipated to increase along with the need for rail batteries as a result of the growth of the rail network.
Based on technology, the valve regulated lead-acid segment is anticipated to be the largest market during the forecast period. The increasing growth in demand for rail batteries has increased the need for a consistent power supply in order to prevent operating interruptions. Additionally, the high charge efficiency, high-rate capacity, and maintenance-free life of the VRLA batteries are key industry drivers.
