According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Electric Motor Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the global electric motor market reached a value of US$ 108.3 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
Electric motors are electro-mechanical devices which work on the principle of electromagnetic induction. They are durable and highly efficient, require low maintenance, consume less energy, and have high endurance for fluctuating voltages. In addition, electric motors cost considerably lower than a fossil-fuel engine. Owing to this, electric motors find applications in diverse industries ranging from automobiles to oil and gas, where they are installed in industrial fans, machine tools, compressors, electric cars, domestic appliances, hard disk drives, etc.
There are several factors currently driving the electric motor market growth globally. Expansion in industrial automation along with advancements in technology is the major growth-inducing factor of the market. Moreover, the trend of replacing gas turbines with electric motors in large industrial plants is propelling their demand. Further, the growth of the market is gaining traction owing to the increasing demand for vehicles supported by improving standards of living and rising purchasing power of the consumers. Additionally, government initiatives aimed to boost the sales of electric vehicles so as to reduce carbon emissions is expected to fuel the electric motor market growth.
