COVID-19 Impact

The global health emergency affected by the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 has had an adverse effect on all industries. Industries have to go through a substantial loss following the impositions of strict policies such as nationwide lockdown to control the reach of the virus. Consequently, the outbreak of the virus has altered the demand for electric types of motors. As the market is huge and contains broad sales channels expand over the different countries, the absence of workers and travel restrictions have discontinued production activities and brought the market to a deadlock.

The pandemic situation also had an adverse effect on currencies everywhere across the globe and many have suffered a fast depreciation. This has created a discrepancy within the value of exports and imports globally which are purchased in US dollars. Currency depreciation, therefore, caused financial losses to components manufacturers and is forecasted to suppress the worldwide electric motors market further.

Type Insights

The AC electric motors segment is estimated to carry for the most prominent share due to its advantages over DC motors because it requires less maintenance and has longer life cycle than DC motors.

Electric Motor Market Share, By Type, 2022 (%)

Also, AC motors are typically thought to be more powerful than DC motors because they will create more torque with a better current which is increasing its demand for various applications.

Output Power Insights

The above 1 hp motors segment is predicted to dominate the electric motor market from 2023 to 2032. Electric motors are utilized in various user applications due to their compactness, light weight, and low maintenance requirements. Electrical motor installation in industrial and transportation user applications is expected to rise rapidly.

Rotor Type Insights

From 2023 to 2032, the inner rotor segment is expected to grow at a higher pace. Inner rotor motors have rotors in the middle that are encircled by stator winding. These motors are used in robotics, CNC machines, automatic door openers, and metal cutting and forming machine applications in the manufacturing, automotive, and consumer electronics industries. These applications require motors which will perform fast acceleration and deceleration of speed, offer high starting torque, have reversible action capability, and are compact. Consistent with the IEA, EV Outlook 2020, the worldwide sales of electrical cars reached 2 million in 2019, 40% above in 2018. This means the increased demand for electric vehicles and their accelerated manufacturing in coming years, which successively, is predicted to fuel the demand for inner rotor electric motors.

End-User Insights

The industrial segment is predicted to steer the electrical motor market from 2023 to 2032. This sector provides good scope for motor manufacturers, as most industries depend upon motorized automation. Electric motors are used in pumps, boilers, compressors, and other applications in the utilities, oil & gas, cement & manufacturing, metal and mining, oil & gas, renewables, petrochemicals & chemicals, water & wastewater, and paper & pulp industries, among others.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific is predicted to be the biggest electric motor market during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific encompasses China, India, Japan, South Korea, and the Rest of Asia Pacific. With the rapid industrialization, the countries in the Asia Pacific are progressing toward internet-based industrial operations in each sector.
