Locomotive Lighting Batteries Market

Locomotive Lighting Batteries Market:Global Industry Analysis 2015 - 2019 and Opportunity Assessment; 2020 - 2030

Market Overview

Locomotive Lighting Batteries Market: Introduction

A train locomotive has several batteries used for different purposes. The locomotive lighting batteries provide power which is required to start the engine and to operate the electronics in the locomotive.

When the engine is switched off and the alternator is not running the electrical power for the lights comes from a locomotive lighting batteries just like any other automobile. 

In the quest to save energy and conserve fuels efforts are being made to develop completely battery powered locomotives, leading to the development of advanced locomotive lighting batteries and an upgraded battery management system.

The safety of railway network also depends on the effective operation of locomotive lighting batteries. Hence batteries play vital role in the locomotive lighting as well as running.

Lead acid batteries generally used in electric locomotives are used for the working of control circuit, indication lamps protective relays etc. along with the operation of baby compressor. Heavy duty industrial batteries are used in diesel railway locomotives for starting and operation of a variety of on-board equipment. 

The batteries used in locomotive operate under severe environmental conditions such as vibrations, humid atmospheres, high and low temperatures etc. Periodical maintenance is mandatory to ensure reliable operations for longer times.

Locomotive Lighting Batteries Market: Dynamics

Railways form an integral part of the transportation system and are seen as part of the critical infrastructure in many countries. The rail industry faces challenge to maintain high performance under pressure with the growth in freight and passenger traffic.

With the rise in demand for energy efficient transport system, the locomotive lighting batteries market is anticipated to witness substantial growth in the coming years.

In emerging economies, high expenditure on rail infrastructure such as high speed metro network is subsequently adding to the locomotive lighting batteries market.The emergence of engineless trains is anticipated to adversely impact the locomotive lighting batteries market.

For example, Indian railways launched a self-propulsion type module sans locomotive capable of running at a very high speed.The trend of greener transportation forms globally, is making space for battery powered locomotives.

Hence manufacturers are building batteries which are robust and designed to meet the demanding performance requirement of the railways.

Locomotive Lighting Batteries Market: Regional Outlook

China, India and South Korea are the prominent countries in the implementation of high speed railway network in Asia Pacific, making it one of the most significant region for locomotive lighting batteries market growth.

Emerging economies and ongoing investments in railway infrastructure in Middle East and Africa is setting the way for locomotive lighting batteries market. North America is expected to witness growth in the locomotive lighting batteries market owing to growth in new high speed trains and metro.

Whereas Latin America is expected to show uptick growth in the market. Japan being one of the major countries in high speed rail network is projected to create opportunities for the locomotive lighting batteries market.

Western Europe is expected to have fair share in the locomotive lighting batteries market growth.
