An electric motor has been used in a broad range of applications, but in recent times electric traction motors are used to propel railways, trams, metros, and in so many other applications. Electric vehicles have to gain importance over time due to rising concerns over GHG emissions. Several countries and leaders across the world promoting e-mobility to mitigate the carbon emission and dependence on internal combustion engine. Electric vehicles not only encourage e-transportation cleaner but also helps to reduce the alleviate the demand for fossil fuel. The electric traction motor is mainly used in railways, trams, metros, EV, elevator, and conveyor among others, driving the demand for electric traction motor. Therefore, the growing adoption of e-mobility and rising concern over deterioration of environment is projected to boost the electric traction motor market.

The electric traction motor market is segmented into type, power rating, and application. Type is further divided into AC and DC electric traction motor. AC motor type is forecasted to dominate owing to high consumption in railways and electric vehicles. Power rating is bifurcated into below 200kW, 200kW-400kW, and above 400kW. The increasing investment in monorail, tram, metro, railway and electric vehicle among others is forecasted to offer lucrative market for 200kW electric traction motor. The electric traction motors are widely used in railways, electric vehicles, elevator, and conveyors, among others.
