According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Saudi Arabia Electric Motor Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the Saudi Arabia electric motor market reached a value of US$ 441.3 Billion in 2018. Electric motors are electro-mechanical machines that transform electrical energy into mechanical energy. They can be differentiated into two main types, namely, AC motors and DC motors. AC motors are powered through alternating current sources such as inverters, generators or power grids. On the other hand, DC motors use direct current sources which include batteries, motor vehicles and rectifiers. Electric motors offer numerous advantages such as durability, high operating life and easy installation. Additionally, as compared to a fossil-fuel engine with the same horsepower rating, these motors have a lower initial cost and longer lifespan.
In recent years, the Government of Saudi Arabia has introduced various policies to promote the development of new industries, giving rise to infrastructural activities, which has led to the demand for electric motors for use in construction activities. Apart from this, in 2018, the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) signed an agreement with the Japanese firms Nissan Motor Company, Tecaoca Coco Energy Solutions Company and Tokyo Electric Power Company to introduce an electric vehicle pilot project in Saudi Arabia. Under this agreement, the SEC will cooperate with the Japanese companies to study and later adopt the production of electric vehicles. This is expected to provide an impetus to the electric motor market in the country. Looking forward, the market size is projected to reach US$ 737.9 Billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of nearly 10% during 2019-2024.
