Global Electric Motor Market to Witness 5.9% CAGR During 2018– 2024, with the market size to reach USD 145.3 billion by 2024

Published Date: Sep, 2018

The global electric motor market is estimated to demonstrate a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period attaining a market size of USD 145.3 billion by 2024. The driving parameters for the growth of the market include rise in adoption of electric motors across industries for automating operations, high demand of electric motors for commercial and residential application, and the increasing requisite for energy efficient motors.

Based on type, the electric motor market is categorised into DC motor, AC motor and hermetic motor, with AC motor leading the market by size. The low maintenance associated with AC motors marks its increased demand over other types. On the basis of output power, the market for electric motor is fragmented into integral horsepower output and fractional horsepower output. Of these, fractional horsepower output of electric motors is estimated to generate the larger revenue during the forecast period, owing to the increasing usage of these motors across automotive and consumer goods industries.

During the forecast period, it is expected that the largest application area of electric motor will be motor vehicles. The growing automotive industry is considered to act as a flux for the high demand of electric motors in motor vehicles. Some of the other application areas of electric motor include industrial machinery, transportation, household appliances and others.
