Electric motors convert electrical energy into rotational mechanical energy through electromagnetism. They provide efficient operation, high reliability and are used across various industrial, commercial and residential applications like fans, pumps, compressors, machine tools and disc drives. Electric motor drives allows precise control over speed, torque and position of electric motors through built-in electronic controls. The demand for electric motor drives is growing rapidly as they improve process efficiency and enable automation across industries.

Market Overview:
Electric motors are the most widely used electromechanical devices for converting electrical energy into mechanical energy. They are found in various machines from household appliances to industrial equipment. The growing awareness about environmental protection and government policies promoting energy efficiency are fueling the adoption of electric motors across industries.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the electric motor market is the rise of sensorless motor control. Sensorless control eliminates the need for rotational position sensors and their associated cabling. This reduces system complexity and cost. It works by estimating rotor position and speed based on current draw characteristics of the motor during operation. Other trends include growing demand for permanent magnet synchronous motors due to their high efficiency. Manufacturers are also focusing on developing innovative electric motor technologies like linear actuators and torque motors to improve machine performance. Electric vehicles are another potential growth area driving adoption of specialized electric motors.
