Electric motor market stood at $108.5 billion in 2017, and is anticipated to reach $155.1 billion by 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.
Electric motors are widely used in various applications such as industrial machines, household appliances, HVAC applications, and motor vehicles. Rising industrial activities as well as growing demand for electric vehicles across the globe are among the major factors pushing the growth of electric motors during the forecast period.
Insights into market segments
Based on motor type, the electric motor market is categorized into AC motor, DC motor, and hermetic motor. AC motor accounted for the largest market share in terms of revenue in 2017, and is further expected to lead the market during the forecast period. AC motors are deployed for variety of applications, ranging from heavy industrial machineries to household appliances. Their constant high rotary speed makes them useful in a wide range of applications, namely railway traction mechanisms, high-power engineering and commercial drill machines, industrial and kitchen blenders, vacuum cleaners, dryers and trimmers.
In terms of DC motor, the market is bifurcated into brushless and brushed DC motors. Owing to its advantages such as better speed control, higher efficiency, no sparking, longer lifetime, higher torque to weight ratio, more reliability, and less noise, brushless DC motor category contributed higher revenue share in 2017. The growth of this category is further expected to be driven by surge in demand for more efficient, more controllable, durable, and low noise electric motors in industrial applications such as actuators, feed drives for computer numerical control (CNC) machines, industrial robots, extruder drives, and others.
Based on output power, the electric motor market is categorized into fractional horsepower and integral horsepower. Integral horsepower motor is expected to witness higher growth rate during the forecast period owing to increasing use of integral horsepower motors for industrial and commercial purposes.
On the basis of application, the electric motor market is categorized into motor vehicles, industrial machinery, HVAC equipment, transportation, and household. Motor vehicles category was the application area for electric motors in 2017, and this category further expected to register highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth would be owing to the exponential surge in demand for electric vehicles. For instance, according to Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), the production of motor vehicles in 2017 was 97 million units, up by 2.4% over 2016.
Asia-Pacific (APAC) to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period
Globally, APAC was the largest market for electric motors, contributing over 55% revenue share to the electric motor market in 2017. This can be attributed to growing demand for electric vehicles predominately in China, due to government initiatives and environmental regulations in the country. The region is further expected to exhibit highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to increasing government incentives supporting adoption of electric vehicles, and rising demand for HVAC equipment from real estate sector in countries such as China, India and South Korea.

Rising adoption of motor-driven electric vehicles to push market growth
The demand for electric vehicles recorded explosive growth in the recent years, with electric motors being one of the major components in these vehicles. The global sales of electric cars reached 1 million units in 2017. Globally, China is the world’s largest electric car market with nearly 580,000 electric cars sold in 2017. Rising adoption of electric vehicles is surging electric motor market growth.
According to World Health Organization (WHO), 7 million deaths occur globally due to air pollution. To curb this, governments in several countries introduced various sales targets for electric vehicles and offer subsidies to support adoption of the electric vehicles. For instance, the government of China allotted a subsidy of over $10,000 per vehicle in 2017, due to which China recorded rise in adoption of electric vehicles by over 42% from 2016. As electric motor is an integral part of an electric vehicle, the increasing adoption of electric vehicles in several countries is fueling the demand for electric motors, globally.
Demand for energy efficient electric motors to provide ample of growth opportunities
Rising concerns pertaining to reducing energy consumption and pollution, and the need to develop and implement high energy efficient motors expected to increase the demand for super premium efficient IE4 electric motors during the forecast period. The IE4 electric motors are 14% more efficient than IE1 motors and 3% than IE3 motors. These motors are designed for line operation (DOL) and can also be operated with frequency converters. Hence, demand for high energy efficient motors and development of IE4 motors, would create wide opportunities for motor manufacturers in the coming years.
