Global Variable Frequency Drives Market: Increase in Global Demand for Energy Stimulating Market Growth

Transparency Market Research has published a new report "Variable Frequency Drives Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth Trends And Forecast 2014 - 2020" to its report store.


Albany, NY -- (SBWire) -- 08/18/2015 --The variable frequency drive is basically a motor controller, which drives an electric motor by adjusting the frequency and voltage supplied to it. Also known as micro-drive, adjustable speed drive, variable speed drive, AC drive, adjustable frequency drive, and inverter. Variable frequency drives are devices that control the speed of the motor to reduce the overall power consumption, eventually improving the efficiency of the motor. This optimizes the utilization of energy in motor driven operation.

Compared to other motor controllers, variable frequency drives are easy to install and permits the deployment of pumps and motors with optimum rating, saving the needless expenditure on added KVA ratings of motors. For uninterrupted operation, it is crucial for the motor to function well. Installing variable frequency drives in motors helps it gain reliability.

Increased Usage of Induction Motor to Propel Market Growth

The global variable frequency drives market amounted US$15,489.0 million in 2013. The industry experts believe that the market will grow at a CAGR of 7.0% during the period of 2014 to 2020, reaching US$24,703.4 million by the end of the forecast period.The rise in the demand for energy and increase in the usage of induction motors in a variety of applications are acting as stimuli for the growth in the global variable frequency drives market. However, the high implementation rates of variable frequency drives in emerging economies such as China and India are upsetting the entire global market.

Asia Pacific to Continue to Dominate Global Industry

The variable frequency drives market is spread across four regional markets, namely the Americas classified into North America and South America, Asia Pacific segmented into China and the Rest of Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa. The global market for variable frequency drives was dominated by Asia Pacific in 2013. The region is expected to maintain its dominance in future. Rapid growth of the chemical processing and the manufacturing industries in the economies such as China and India will encourage the demand for variable frequency drives in Asia Pacific. Momentous growth in the other industries such as power, hydrocarbons, infrastructure, and automobile production will also add to the demand for variable frequency drives in this region during the forecast period.
