Global Locomotive Engine Suspension Market 2017-2021

About Locomotive Engine Suspension

Locomotive engine suspension: The locomotive suspension comprises the system of springs, suspension, and linkages that connect a vehicle to its wheels. It serves two purposes, namely improving vehicle's handling process and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure. The suspension keeps the passengers isolated from vibrations, noise, and road bumps.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Locomotive Engine Suspension Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global locomotive engine suspension market: AL-KO, Growag, Knorr-Bremse, and ZF.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Koni-Enidine Rail and Suomen Vaimennin Oy.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is emergence of electric switchable yaw dampers. A yaw damper is a type of shock absorber that helps prevent the locomotive engines or railcars from excessively swaying sideways. The yaw dampers prevent the locomotive engines from striking the platform while reducing the gap between the platform and locomotive engine while rolling past a railway platform.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is shortage in vehicle logistics for road and rail transport. In emerging countries like China and India, there is a growing preference for road transportation. The subsequent increase in the use of heavy-, medium-, and light-duty vehicles will lead to less share of rail being used for transport. In China, traffic jams are caused due to large heavy-duty trucks transporting goods from inner Mongolia to Beijing. One of the main reasons that road transport is preferred for transporting cargo is the limited number of freight rail services in the country.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost of electrification of railway routes. Increasing fuel prices and road congestions are driving the need for rail transport of freight. Rail provides a more economical transport of freight over longer distances than the road. However, the high costs regarding electrification of rails stretching millions of miles and subsequent environmental concerns regarding cutting of trees and leveling natural abode for the construction of electric overhead lines are driving the need for diesel locomotive engines.
