LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest report on the global DC motors market provides an analysis on the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2016-2020. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
Bharath Kanniappan, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on the automation sector, says, “Countries such as Germany, India, China, and the US have undertaken several initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These initiatives include incorporating renewable sources of power into the transmission and distribution network. Such initiatives have been favoring the brushless DC motors market growth, as it is used in the plant and the equipment to reduce GHG emission.”
The top three emerging trends driving the global DC motors market according to Technavio industrial automation research analysts are:
- Emergence of compact and modular DC motors
- DC motors with integrated speed controllers
- Growing demand for electric vehicles
Emergence of compact and modular DC motors
Innovations have led to the creation of compact and modular DC motors in the market. The features of a modular DC motor that are pushing its demand in the industries are high efficiency, perfect coordination, low-wear materials and well-proven insulation system, high power density with low envelope dimensions, and low noise emission. There is a high degree of reliability due to its rugged design and owing to its modular concept. It also displays optimum operating behavior and maximum dynamic performance with highly smooth running characteristics and balance quality.
Many industrial verticals such as extruder for plastic industry, hoisting and travel gears for cranes, rolling mill drivers and winders, rotary kiln for cement factories, and drives for lifts and cable railways are on the lookout for these features. For instance, Siemens offers modular DC motors in series 5, 6, and 7, which give maximum power in minimum space.
DC motors with integrated speed controllers
Innovations in the DC motor market have resulted in the integration of brushless DC motors with controllers and streamlining them into one package. When these two parts are combined in one casing, it eliminates the need to wire the motor and gives a clean look. It also eliminates the possibility of mismatched components and wiring errors. It can operate at 4,000 RPM and is available in models ranging from 1.7-inch diameter to 3.4-inch diameter, with power ratings from 26 W to 700 W. It can also be customized to match the voltage, current, and operating speed needed for any application. Cables and connectors and special shaft modifications are also available on request. Brushless DC motors with integrated speed controllers is a simple and cost-effective solution to motion control application needs.
“Therefore, brushless DC motors with integrated speed controller has become a major trend in the global brushless DC motor market and is widely adopted by the emerging solar industry because of its low emission of carbon footprint and distortions,” says Bharath.
Growing demand for electric vehicles
Technavio researchers expect that the global electric vehicles market will maintain a CAGR of about 19% and its unit sales will reach 7.5 million by 2020. There is high demand for DC motors in electric vehicles in the US, Japan, Europe, South Africa, China, and India. This demand is driven by various features of DC motors such as low maintenance, high operating speeds, compact size, quick response, generate less carbon-dioxide and are cost-effective and efficient.
Moreover, the cooler and thermal resistance capacity of the vehicle machinery eliminates the threat of sparks. Due to this feature, DC motors are used in scooter mini bike and go-kart mini bike. Around 2.7 million plug-in electric vehicles were launched globally in 2015 with an annual investment of USD 1.5 billion. Therefore, Technavio predicts that the rise in the use of electric vehicles will boost the global DC motor market.
