Market Report Description

The Europe Traction Transformer Market would witness market growth of 5.2% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

The massive transformer used earlier is not inherently a drawback on conventional trains driven by locomotives because it helps with adhesion. The heaviness of the locomotive sets a limit on how much force it can use to pull a rail without losing traction on the rails. However, multiple-unit trains, where the traction unit is dispersed along the course of the train within the same carriages in which passengers travel, are more common in contemporary passenger trains.

Adhesion no longer remains a significant constraint for the train's acceleration due to the increase of powered axles, but the size and weight of the transformer continue to be a significant design limitation. As a result, the ideal train would incorporate both high-voltage AC electrification's minimal transmission losses and the lightweight and compact equipment size of DC trains.

The main difficulty is in manufacturing the transformer to be lightweight. Frequency and power rating are two factors that affect a transformer's minimum size; higher power ratings call for larger transformers. Weight and space savings are both possible with a higher-frequency transformer. Materials that are high-temperature, non-flammable, and vibration-resistant are used in the equipment's construction to ensure that they can withstand the various working and climatic circumstances found in different geographic areas.

The Europe region accommodates a vast network of railways, as this region was an early adopter of high-speed rail. Several well-acclaimed rail networks are found in Europe, most of them being built to connect the major trading points. France became the first nation to offer high-speed rail to the general public, operating between Lyon and Paris at a speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). Nowadays, the high-speed rail system of France consists of a sizable network of trains that can travel at up to 320 km/h (200 mph).
