Market Report Description

The North America Electric Traction Motor Market would witness market growth of 11.2% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

The AC system enables speed control with switchgear on the truck and efficient power distribution along a rail line. Due to their fixed speed characteristic, AC induction motors and synchronous motors are simple and inexpensive maintenance, but difficult to employ for traction motors. An AC induction motor can only operate at a limited speed range, which is dictated by the design of the motor and the frequencies of the AC power source.

A locomotive can now use a variable frequency drive, which enables a broad range of speeds, AC power transfer, and tough induction motors without wearing elements like brushes and commutators. This is made possible by the development of power semiconductors. Before the middle of the 20th century, connecting rods very similar to those used on steam locomotives were frequently employed to drive many driving wheels by a single, huge motor. Examples include the DD1, FF1, and L5 of the Pennsylvania Railroad and the various Swiss Crocodiles.

EV sales have considerably increased recently in Canada, the US, and other nations, but still, constitute a small portion of all new car sales. According to the International Energy Agency, at the end of 2014, there were 665,000 electric vehicles on the road, up from 180,000 in 2012. The market share for light-duty cars in Canada is now 0.28 percent, based on the most recent data. Although electric vehicle (EV) technology has been available for a while, industry insiders believe that consumers are uninformed of the advantages of EVs over conventional cars with internal combustion engines (ICE).
