Report Description

Electric Motor Market was valued at US$ 100 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% over the forecast period (2021-2027). A rise in technological advancement in the industries such as medical, food and beverage, manufacturing, etc. are generating the demand for electric motor globally.  As per a report by DataProt, there are more than 10 billion active IoT devices In 2021. Moreover, it is estimated that the number of active IoT devices will surpass 25.4 billion in 2030. Also, the trending smart factory concept globally is one of the prominent reasons that are contributing to the growth of the market. Smart factories in North America are expected to be worth more than US$500 billion in 2022, as revealed by Forbes. Moreover, due to the wide application of electric motors in consumer goods, food and beverage, and the automobile industry, the demand for electric motors is witnessing an uptick. In the food and beverage sector, electric motors are used in ready-to-eat processing, meat and poultry processing, soft drink production, distilling, and malting, etc. Whereas in the consumer goods industry, motors are used in applications such as electric toothbrushes vacuum cleaners, coffee machines, refrigerators, etc. More than 10% of fractional horsepower motors power domestic appliances, finding use in microwave turntables, blenders, mixers, refrigerators, washers and dryers, and garage door openers


However, the COVID-19 pandemic became a disruption for the global electric motors market. The magnitude of this unpreceded crisis has yet to be fully manifested and resailed.
