Latin America is a potential market for traction transformer in the coming years. One of the major reasons of the development of the market in this region is the congestion of the road and airways, which has become a major transportation concern. As a result, the government is looking at projects like high-speed trains and tramways to ease this pressure. This has led to railways becoming an alternate transport solution. Each rail project is considered to be a unique one, and the application of traction transformer is tailor-made for providing answers to such varied rail demands. Thus, the traction transformer market is a key component for the overall growth of the rail transport industry, resulting wider scope for the traction transformer manufacturers in this market. Countries contributing towards the traction transformer market in Latin America are Brazil and Argentina.
