Global Markets for New Components and Materials in Advanced Electric Motors

Global Markets for New Components and Materials in Advanced Electric Motors

Report Highlights
The global market for advanced materials and components in electric motors was valued at $33.4 billion in 2015. This market is expected to increase from $33.8 billion in 2016 to $46 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4% for 2016-2021.

Report Includes
An overview of the global markets for new components and materials in advanced electric motors
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2015, 2016, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2021
Detailed analysis of manufacturers and developers of components and materials used in advanced motors, as opposed to present day commodity motors
Coverage of both entirely new motor technologies as well as significant component or drive enhancements
A look at improvements in controllers (adjustable speed drives) and components such as magnetic bearings, rotor materials, and semiconductors
Technologies including:
Torque Control Technologies (direct vs. indirect)
Synchronous reluctance motors
Variable reluctance motors
Switched reluctance motors
Variable reluctance stepping motors
New ECM Concepts
Profiles of major players in the industry


Report Scope

This report covers both entirely new motor technologies and significant component or drive enhancements. For example, improvements in controllers (adjustable speed drives) and components such as magnetic bearings, rotor materials and semiconductors are covered.

Currently, much of the electric motor manufacturing industry is engaged in the production of commodity output using well-established technologies. Established technologies comprise most of the approximately $10 billion U.S. motor market. The global market for motors is about $80 billion per year, with much of this amount commodity output. While the magnitude of commodity output and the description of established technologies has been covered in previous market reports, advanced motor technologies and new components that are likely to see greater market penetration in the coming decade have not been thoroughly examined. This report covers what new and novel developments related to finished electric motors and their key components.
