The market crossed US$ 0.5 billion mark in 2022 and is expected to hit US$ 0.7 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 4.9 % during the forecast period.

Train battery market has been significantly growing with the increase in adoption of high-speed and autonomous vehicles.

Growing demand for high-speed and autonomous trains along increasing railway network are some of the major factors driving the growth of the market. In addition, rising demand for a secure, efficient, and safer rail transport is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period. Further, growing demand for trains with high passenger capacity is also anticipated to offer ample growth opportunities for train battery market. The lead-acid battery segment is expected to hold the largest market share in the market. Further, lithium-ion segment is also expected to gain traction during the forecasted year.

Within the report, the train battery market is segmented into battery type, battery technology, application, train type, and geography. By battery type, the train battery market is further segmented into lead-acid battery, nickel-cadmium, lithium-ion. On the basis of battery technology, the market is bifurcated into gel tubular lead-acid battery, valve regulated lead-acid battery, sinter PNE nickel-cadmium battery, pocket plate nickel-cadmium battery, lithium-ion battery, Others. By application, the market is categorized into starter battery, auxiliary battery. By train type, the market is segmented into autonomous trains, hybrid locomotive, fully battery-operated trains. Geographically, the train battery market is subsegmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Several factors such as improvement in railway infrastructure and rise in testing & development of autonomous train are enhancing the growth of train battery market.

In developing countries, the rising improvements in railway infrastructure along with the increase in testing and development autonomous train are anticipated to bolster the market growth. However, high capital requirements, stiff government regulations on train batteries may restrain the train battery market growth. For example, in the U.K., completion of the high-speed rail line project for the Birmingham city has been pushed back to 2031 and for the Manchester & Leeds branch to 2040, and the expected cost of the project has nearly doubled from the initial budget of USD 65.0 billion to nearly USD 130.0 billion due to the high cost.

The supportive government initiative for expansion of AI, IoT and DAS is one of the major factors accelerating the train battery market growth.

Governments worldwide are taking initiatives, making investments, and promoting the expansion of railway industry. In addition, advanced technology implementations such as AI, IoT, DAS, and deep learning to enhance passenger experience and improve efficiency is expected to boost the market growth. For example, according to IoT Times, in 2019, Network Rail introduced the Intelligent Infrastructure (II) program to turn data into intelligent information that can effectively deliver enhanced services for passenger and freight customers.
