Electric Motors to Witness Rising Demand

With the technological advancement around, the demand for electric motors is expected to increase rapidly. The process of transition from IC engine-based automobiles to electric vehicles will be one of the major thrust areas…

According to the recent report by Allied Market Research, titled: “Electric Motor Market by Type (Alternate Current (AC) Motor, and Direct Current (DC) Motor, Component (Rotor, Stator, Bearings, Frame, End-Bracket, and Others), and Application (Automobile-Traction Motor, Automobile-Non-Traction Motor, HVAC, Medical Equipment, Industrial Machinery, Home Appliances, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2023–2032,” the global electric motor industry generated $142.1 billion in 2020, and is anticipated to generate $373.9 billion by 2032, witnessing a CAGR of 9.5% from 2023 to 2032.

An Increase in demand for energy-efficient electric motors, increased sales of consumer electronics and appliances in developing countries, and a rise in demand for electric vehicles drive the growth of the global electric motor market. However, the high initial cost of electric motors restricts the market growth. Moreover, advancements in technology will present new opportunities in the coming years.

Impact of the COVID-19 Scenario

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global electric motor market, owing to temporary closure of electric motor manufacturing firms during the lockdown.

Not only the production but also the sale of electric motors was hampered due to the closure of end-user industries across the world, especially in the initial period of the pandemic.

Highest demand anticipated for AC motor segment

By motor type, the AC Motor segment held the highest market share in 2020, accounting for more than three-fourths of the global electric motor market revenue, and is estimated to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period.

AC motors are used for obtaining high kilowatt output. They offer better efficiency as compared to induction motors and are used in applications operating at constant speed. Moreover, synchronous motors are used in substations and generating stations, which are connected to bus bars for improvisation of power factor. However, the DC motor segment is projected to manifest the highest CAGR of 9.9% from 2023 to 2032. DC motors are mechanically commutated motors, which are ideal for use in high-speed applications. They are widely used in various medical equipment in the healthcare industry, owing to their size and working efficiency, which boosts the market for DC motors.

Component-wise projection

By component, rotor segment held the highest market share in 2020, accounting for nearly one-fourths of the global electric motor market, and is estimated to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period. The same segment is projected to manifest the highest CAGR of 10.2% from 2023 to 2032. The rotor in a motor is the rotating component of the machine. It is an essential part of the motor’s operation as it plays a crucial role in generating mechanical motion. In an electric motor, the rotor is subjected to a magnetic field produced by the stator (stationary component), which induces a torque that causes the rotor to rotate. This rotation is then converted into mechanical work, such as turning a shaft or driving a load.

Application-wise expectation

By application, the automobile-traction motor segment accounted for the largest share in 2020, contributing to nearly one-third of the global electric motor market revenue, and is projected to maintain its lead position during the forecast period.

The same segment is expected to portray the largest CAGR of 14.8% from 2023 to 2032. The automobile industry is witnessing substantial demand for green vehicles to safeguard the environment by reducing carbon emissions from the vehicles. Therefore, the trend of using premium efficiency motors in electric cars is gaining traction in the motor vehicles sector. Electric vehicles are witnessing high traction in the market, due to the variety of technological advancements. Electric vehicles are advantageous as compared to conventional vehicles in terms of features such as higher fuel economy and low carbon emission.

Region-wise forecast

By region, Asia-Pacific held the highest market share in terms of revenue in 2022, accounting for more than two-fifths of the global electric motor market revenue, and is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. In the countries in Asia-Pacific, electric motors are widely used in fans, pumps, compressors, wheel rotors, hand tools, battery power tools, agricultural applications, along with various other applications. Moreover, the food and beverages, pharmaceutical, chemicals, and petrochemicals industries are large in the region.

The presence of a large industrial sector is expected to drive the demand for electric motors. However, the LAMEA (Latin America, the Middle East and Africa) region is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 10.6% from 2023 to 2032. Rapid urbanization in the developing countries, such as Brazil and Argentina, drives the demand for home appliances, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the growth of the market in LAMEA region. The usage of electric motor is expected to increase in manufacturing and automotive sectors.
