Global Hub Motor Market to Grow at 5.1% During 2022-2027, Fostered by Rising Demand for Electric Vehicles

Published on Sep 16, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Hub Motor Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global hub motor market reached a value of US$ 8,823.2 Million in 2021. A hub motor refers to an electric motor integrated into the wheels of a vehicle. It is an independent drive system consisting of a fuel cell, generator, and battery pack. The system converts electric energy into rotatory motion, which minimizes the contact between the stator and rotor. This mechanism facilitates electronic commutation, reduces engine load, and enhances the operational efficiency of the vehicle. In addition, a hub motor offers easy installation, generates more power, requires minimal maintenance, and eliminates the need for gears and transmissions.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Hub Motor Market Trends:

One of the key factors driving the hub motor market growth is the widespread product utilization in the manufacturing of and improving the performance of electric vehicles (EVs). Due to the increasing environmental consciousness, there has been a significant rise in the demand for EVs, which, in turn, is inflating the sales of hub motor across the globe. The rising need for efficient and lightweight vehicles is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, large-scale investments in research and development (R&D) activities to integrate next-generation technologies, such as brushless direct current (BLDC), are fueling the market growth. Continuous product innovations, including the integration of thermal management and enhanced traction control, are some of the other factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% during 2022-2027.
