The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “GCC Electric Motor Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the GCC electric motor market reached a value of more than US$ 750 Million in 2016. Since the invention of electricity, electric motors have brought about the biggest advancements in the field of engineering and technology. Electric motors refer to electrical machines which transform electrical energy into mechanical energy. These motors can be powered through direct current sources including motor vehicles, rectifiers and batteries; and alternate current sources which include inverters, power grid and generators. Additionally, these motors can be utilised as generators for converting mechanical energy into electric power. These motors offer numerous advantages such as long operating life, low energy consumption, low maintenance cost and high endurance for fluctuating voltages.
Highlights of the GCC electric motor market:
- Expanding industrial sector in the GCC region is the primary driving factor.
- HVAC represents the largest end-use industry, accounting for the majority of the market share.
- Saudi Arabia dominates the market supported by increasing exports to other gulf countries.
In the GCC region, the prospect for electric cars is growing over time due to an increase in oil prices which has added to the growth of the GCC electric motor market.
