What is Automotive Traction Motor? How Big is Automotive Traction Motor Market Size?

  • Overview

A traction motor is an electric motor that is powered by electricity and generates the power to turn the wheels of vehicle. Automotive traction motors are used to propel metros, railways, trams, and other applications by converting electrical energy to mechanical energy. They are majorly utilized in industry verticals, including chemical & petrochemical, oil & gas, energy & power, automotive, food & beverages, and healthcare.

Industries are rapidly moving from traditional engines to automotive traction motors as they consume less power than a conventional motor. Electric motor produces high performance, simple design, improved reliability, and low maintenance, which is anticipated to propel the automotive traction motor market size. Also, increasing manufacturing of high-performance motors worldwide is driving the industry growth.

Growth Driving Factors

  • Increasing demand for electric vehicles to flourish the market growth

The rising demand for the automotive traction motor in trolleybuses, tramcars, electric trains, and electric vehicles is estimated to fuel the market growth. Besides, growing demand for EVs with low-speed operation, high-speed performance, safe, better immunity to vibration, and electromagnetic compatibility robustness boosts the automotive traction motor market demand. A surge in investments by the government in railway and roadway infrastructure is another factor driving the industry expansion.

Moreover, rising environmental concerns due to the effect of conventional vehicles are encouraging the adoption of EVs across the globe. This is one of the major factors contributing to the automotive traction motor industry's growth.  Government worldwide are introducing stringent regulations to reduce the use of carbon-emission vehicles, and therefore people are shifting to electric vehicles. Thus the market is growing at a rapid pace. In addition, many manufacturers and leading firms are collaborating to develop traction motor packs that can work under high temperatures, creating lucrative opportunities in the automotive traction motor market.

The company has recently eWorX which provides fully electric system solutions in a small package with a single interface.

Segmental Analysis

  • Buses segment dominated the market in 2021

Based on vehicle automotive traction motor market segmentations, in 2021, buses segment witnessed the highest revenue share due to the growing demand for emission-free public transportation. Besides, the increasing demand for electric buses ultimately drives the demand for automotive traction motors. Increased demand for more torque and power supply in the motor, which is essential for quick start, strong acceleration, and high climbing angle in vehicles and bus, is further expected to propel the market growth during the projected period.

  • BEV segment is expected to account for the major share

On the EV basis, the BEV segment held the largest automotive traction motor market share owing to the growing demand for low-cost vehicles with zero-emission vehicles and low fuel consumption across the automotive industry. A permanent magnet synchronous machine (PMSM) is one of the best choices for these vehicles as it is efficient and compact in size.

  • AC type category is likely to generate the biggest revenue share during the predicted period

In terms of type, AC is projected to lead the industry throughout the foreseen period. The largest share of this segment can be attributed to the growing adoption of AC motors, as it provides high torque output and tractive forces. In addition, AC traction motors have dynamic breaking ability, which is increasing their demand in electric vehicles, industrial machinery, and rail industries. This factor is anticipated to propel the segment growth in the market.
