Growth Drivers

A lot of energy is saved when VSDs are used in electric motors. It also increases their efficiency and reduces carbon emissions. They can regulate the speed of the motor based on the load.  The manufacturers are now using them extensively to enhance efficiency and production and reduce environmental impacts, processing time, and errors.

There is a rise in factory automation practices of late which promotes load tolerance and reduces failures. These energy-efficient motors are more cost-effective than traditional motors, both in the short and long run. Customers prefer using these motors over others due to the advantages provided, low fan losses, better insulation and lamination, and their enhanced abilities.

In addition, there are also other factors than the above that drive the growth of energy-efficient motors. These are fast urbanization, technological development, and increased awareness.


The high initial cost of the motors due to better and high-end materials, especially the super-efficient IE4 motors, in comparison to regular motors,and the dependence of the market on high initial investment may impede the growth of this market. Also, a lot of people are not aware of the utility of these motors.

However, growing awareness and reduced costs will help the market overcome the challenges in the forecast period.


There will be a lot of innovations and technological developments to make these machines far more efficient and cost-effective due to lower energy consumption. This will encourage users to invest in these seemingly expensive motors.

Additionally, the revenue of this market is also expected to grow due to their higher demand in specific industries, such as machine tools, HVAC, power tools, home appliances, robotics, and more.
