Global Automotive Direct Drive Motor Market 2017-2021

Global Automotive Direct Drive Motor Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Direct Drive Motor

Electric motor is a machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy through the interaction of magnetic field with current. The motor mainly consists of two parts: a rotor and a stator. The motors can be categorized into direct current (DC) motor and alternating current (AC) motor based on the type of current used by the motor. AC motors are classified into synchronous or asynchronous, and DC motors are classified into brushed and brushless.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive direct drive motor market to grow at a CAGR of 201.71% during the period 2017-2021.
