Power Electronics for Rail Transportation Applications 2012

  • Published: December 2012
  • Region: Global
  • Yole Développement

Over the next five years, major supply chain and technology changes will impact the Power Electronics business for the rail industry

A Power Electronics market that will be multiplied by 1.7, reaching $4.5 billion by 2020

Rail traction can be segmented into three main sub-applications: urban vehicles (trams and metros), regional and commuters (mostly Electrical Multiple Units, or “EMUs”) and high-speed trains (Power cars and EMUs). With a total market size of 4,000 units in 2012 and more than 6,000 expected in 2020, the railway industry is without question an attractive one!

Of course, the rail industry means steady, not rapid growth, for two main reasons: long-term system manufacturing and government-related business. On the upside, the rail industry is safe and encourages innovation.

Moreover, emerging regions such as South America, Africa/Middle East and Southeast Asia are demanding more and more in terms of public transportation.
The Related Inverters market for public transportation is today estimated at $3 billion, and is expected to reach $4.5 billion by 2020. In this new report Yole shows how and why rail is dynamic, with the main READ MORE >
