Locomotive Market by Power Conversion Components (Rectifier, Inverter, Alternator, APU & Traction Motor), Technology (IGBT module, GTO Thyristor Module & SiC Module), Rolling Stock Type, and by Region – Global Trends and Forecast to 2021″, The Locomotive market for power conversion systems is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.92%, to reach a market size of USD 4.27 billion by 2021. A major factor driving the growth of the locomotive market for power conversion systems is rapid urbanization in emerging economies. In view of the rapid growth in urbanization and industrialization, the need for power and conversion systems is anticipated to increase during the forecast period. Moreover, this will require a substantial increase in power generation capacity and in turn infrastructure investments in this segment.

“Increase in need for energy efficient technologies will give rise to the demand for IGBT power modules”

The market for IGBT power modules is anticipated to gradually replace the market for GTO Thyristor modules, owing to the advantages offered in terms of efficiency and power density, and the ability to provide more power in a smaller space.
