Electric Motors: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global electric motors market is expected to witness growth supported by the increase in automobile production and increase in the number of motors per car. Automotive motors are used in vehicle powertrain systems, chassis, and in internal/external comfort and safety fittings. The growing popularity of vehicle features such as motorized seats, doors, sun-roof systems, wipers, massage seats and adjustable mirrors, are helping drive demand for electric motors, especially brushless direct current (BLDC) motors. The ongoing replacement of solenoid valves with motorized variants will additionally spur opportunities for demand growth. Rising environmental concerns and volatile oil prices are helping accelerate the transition towards electric vehicles. The scenario is forecast to encourage demand for large-sized electric motors with higher torque and power. Developments in motor performance and decline in prices are enabling asynchronous motors to emerge as the most popular electric motors for use in electric military vehicles, large buses, mobile cranes and forklifts.

Fractional horsepower (FHP) motors are widely used in all household appliances ranging from refrigerators, vacuum cleaners to coffee machines. In the industrial environment, heavy equipment is driven by integral horse power (IHP) electric motors. The growing trend towards replacing gas turbines with electric motors in large industrial plants bodes well for the electric motors market. Key factors driving the trend include the need to reduce maintenance costs while simultaneously improve plant process reliability, and reduce plant air emissions. The replacement opportunity is large in the oil and gas end-use sector where pumping and compressing applications are widespread. Typically these applications use compressors and pumps, which are driven by turbines, which generate nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. Tightening of environmental regulations, which cap (NOx) emissions and mandate NOx reductions in plants are exerting significant compliance pressure on plant operators. The scenario is benefitting sales of electric motors, given their zero NOx emissions, higher efficiency over 17% in comparison with gas turbines, higher operating speeds, easy installation, and lower noise and vibration.

As stated by the new market research report on Electric Motors, Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide with a projected CAGR of 8.3% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by strong economic growth, rapid industrialization, expansion of manufacturing bases, and the growing emphasis on energy efficiency.
