Segmental Overview

The market for Electric motors is segmented into type, output, rotor type, and end-user. By output power, from 2022 through 2030, the electric motor industry is expected to be dominated by motors with a horsepower of 1 or more. Electric motors are used in a wide range of consumer applications because of their small size, lightweight, and low maintenance. It is anticipated that the installation of electrical motors in industrial and transportation user applications will increase quickly. 

Based on end-user, the automotive segment is anticipated to dominate the electric motor market. The increased use of electric motors in the automotive sector is responsible for this high percentage. A typical commercial vehicle includes about 40 electric motors, ranging in power from low to high.

The market in the automotive sector is further driven by the development of low-cost, highly effective electronics in conjunction with advancements in permanent magnetic materials. Furthermore, in industrialized and expanding economies like Germany, the U.S., China, and Japan, the demand for electric vehicles is rising quickly due to rising fuel prices and pollution. As a result, the market is significantly driven by the growing demand for electric motors from the electric car industry.

Regional Overview

In 2021, the Asia Pacific region held the most significant revenue share of nearly 45% in the electric motor market, dominating it. This is due to agricultural sector improvements and significant industrial investments made by nations like China, India, South Korea, and Australia. In addition, the presence of well-known OEMs like Honda Motor Co., Ltd., Hyundai Motor Company, Toyota Industries Corporation, and Nissan Motor Corporation is also expected to boost the market’s growth prospects in this area, as are the rising production and sales of electric vehicles in nations like China and Japan.

Following the Asia Pacific, Europe and North America regions held a significant market share in 2021 and are seeing an increase in product demand. These regions represent the largest market for premium efficiency motors, which are utilized in electric vehicles, industrial applications, and HVAC systems. Due to increased government support, the growth potential for the markets in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa is anticipated to improve soon. The market in these regions is expanding with the rising need for motors from the oil & gas sector, the growth of the mining sector, as well as the substantial demand for cement across the construction sector.
