Electric Motors

As Quoted In ACHR News

Demand for electric motors will track growing durable goods manufacturing. Motor vehicles will remain the largest market, the result of an increasing number of motor-dependent options.

US demand to rise 4.6% annually through 2017

US demand for electric motors is expected to increase 4.6 percent annually through 2017 to $14.4 billion, accelerating from the pace of the 2007-2012 period, when nearly every major market for these devices struggled. Price increases accounted for the overall dollar gains posted during that span. The market for AC motors -- which are used in a myriad of applications such as heating and cooling equipment and household appliances -- will grow the most in absolute terms and remain the largest product segment. DC motors are used extensively in automotive applications, and suppliers will benefit from a rebound in motor vehicle output. Hermetically- sealed motors will register the fastest market advances of any electric motor product segment.

Heating, cooling equipment market to grow the fastest

Among major markets, heating and cooling equipment applications are projected to register the fastest sales growth through 2017, bolstered by increases in building construction after a prolonged period of weakness. The motor vehicle market will record the second most rapid gains as automotive production rises and the number of electric motor-dependent systems in the average vehicle continues to climb. Growing demand for electric traction motors used in hybrid/electric vehicles will also contribute to automotive sales gains, although this will remain a small market in absolute terms. Sizable advances are forecast as well for aerospace and other transportation equipment motor applications, as air traffic expands along with economic activity and more households purchase recreational products such as boats or campers.

FHP motors to remain largest segment, but will be outpaced by IHP motors

Fractional horsepower (FHP) motors, those with a horsepower rating of less than one, are expected to remain the larger product category in 2017 in both value and volume terms. This will be due to their extensive use in the mechanical systems of products ranging from aerospace and heating and cooling equipment to motor vehicles, all of which will experience an increase in production. However, demand for integral horsepower (IHP) motors (those with a horsepower rating of one or greater), is expected to grow faster than that for FHP motors in both value and volume terms as industrial users upgrade to more energy efficient IHP. Electric motors account for more than four-fifths of all electricity used in industrial production activities, providing users with a strong incentive to replace older, less efficient motors despite the substantial upfront costs.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $11.5 billion US electric motors industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by type (e.g., fractional horsepower, integral horsepower, AC motors, DC motors, hermetic motors) and market (e.g., motor vehicles, heating and cooling equipment, machinery, household appliances, aerospace).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry players, including Nidec, Regal Beloit, and General Electric.
