The Li-ion battery segment is expected to register the highest growth rate of 6.8% from 2022 to 2030

Li-Ion batteries as compared to other battery types are maintenance-free, have a longer life cycle, have higher energy density and are compact in design. Developments in lithium-ion batteries to enhance their performance is contributing to the increase in demand for lithium-ion batteries. The growth in adoption can also be attributed to the rising need of reducing weight of high-speed trains and their longer lifecycle. Also, Lithium and cobalt are primary constituents of Lithium-ion batteries which are abundantly found in China and as, China is the largest market for high-speed trains, the demand for Lithium-Ion batteries in the region is projected to grow during the forecast period.

Electric locomotive segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.2% from 2022 to 2030

Electric locomotives derive their power directly from overhead electric lines. As they donot have to carry fuel with them like diesel locomotives, electric locomotives are lightweight and can travel faster. Electric locomotives are driven by electric motor which is above 90% efficient. Further, increasing use of regenerative braking and on-board battery system has been able to further improve power conversion efficiency. Hence, the growing use of auxiliary function batteries on Electric locomotives will drive the demand for train batteries in the forecast period.
