Gear Motors Market
Gear Motors Market


the gear motors market was valued at more than USD 14 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% from 2022-2028.

Gear motors are electric motors with integrated gear reducers, and it works like the speed and torque converter of an electric motor to closely match the speed and torque requirements of a specific application. Gear motors are a particularly simple and cost-effective solution to achieve optimal energy efficiency. These motors are available in a variety of AC and DC motor types, gear technologies, gear ratios, and mechanical features, giving equipment producers a large amount of flexibility to design the ideal product for their application requirements. A challenge for the global gear motors market is the constant inspection and maintenance required by gear motors to prevent problems like oil leakage and temperature check. As a result, gear motor manufacturers are investing more in R&D to address current operational issues.

The major factors for the growth of the gear motor market are rising demand in energy sectors, growing wind power installations, and increasing concerns regarding the efficiency of mechanical power transmission. For instance, according to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), wind power installation is increasing immensely as around 71 GW of new wind projects were established globally in 2020.

Eaton; Siemens; ABB Motors and Mechanical Inc.; SEW-EURODRIVE; Flender; Watt Drive WEG Group.; Altra Industrial Motion Corp.; Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd.; Emerson Electric Co.; Elecon Engineering Company Limited are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
