Dublin, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Hybrid Train Market by Propulsion, Operating Speed, Application, and Region - Global Forecast to 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global hybrid train market is estimated to grow from 5,429 Units in 2019 to reach 9,109 Units by 2030, at a CAGR of 4.8%. Increased emphasis on reduction in carbon emissions is expected to boost the market. However, high overhaul & maintenance costs can create a hurdle for the growth of it.

The hybrid train market is dominated by a few globally established players such as Alstom (France), Bombardier (US), CRRC (China), Siemens (Germany), BNSF (US), and Hitachi (Japan).

Stringent regulations regarding environmental issues is likely to propel the growth of hydrogen trains during the forecast period

The hydrogen train segment is the fastest growing market. Hydrogen train which works on hydrogen fuel cells is said to be a true eco-friendly train. Hydrogen train does not require a dual fuel system, which makes it a completely pollution-free and noise-free in operation achieving the need of an emission-free train. Alstom with Eversholt Rail has introduced the first hydrogen fuel cell powered train in Germany in September 2018, which has already entered into the commercial services.

North America market is expected to register the fastest growth during the forecast period

The North America market is expected to witness the fastest growth, followed by the Middle East & Africa. The US accounts for the largest share of the North American train market in 2018. The railway industry in the country is inclined towards innovation, technology, and development of high-performance and energy-efficient trains. The increasing demand for reducing carbon emission and developing more efficient trains are expected to propel the growth. BNSF, Bombardier, and GE are some of the key players in the US railway industry. BNSF with GE Transportation has planned to launch a diesel-electric locomotive by the end of 2020.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest market, followed by Europe. The increasing concerns of carbon emission due to conventional railways and efficiency in this mode of transport have led the European authorities to develop a hybrid train network that has propelled the growth of this market. Government initiatives have encouraged the key players to develop the infrastructure for the train network. These trains have provided an opportunity for railway manufacturers to increase their presence in the region.
