Global Synchronous Electric Motors Market 2017-2021
About Synchronous Electric Motors
Synchronous electric motors are defined as AC motors in which the rotation of the shaft is synchronized with the frequency of the supply current at a steady state. The rotation period is exactly equal to an integral number of AC cycles. The major advantage of synchronous electric motor is that it is used for critical and complex operations. Synchronous electric motors provide high precision and high performance, wherein complex operations can be carried out safely.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global synchronous electric motors market to grow at a CAGR of 4.15% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Synchronous Electric Motors Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global synchronous electric motors market: ABB, Baumüller, Bosch Rexroth, Emerson Electric, and Siemens.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ALSTOM, Arc Systems, ASTRO Motorengesellschaft, ebm-papst, GENERAL ELECTRIC, Hitachi, Jeumont Electric, Johnson Electric, maxon motor, Mitsubishi Materials Trading, Moog, Nidec, Rockwell Automation, TMEIC, Toshiba International, VEM Group, and WEG.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is sensorless control in latest synchronous electric motors. The latest advancement for simple installation similar to induction motors is cantered with the sensorless control and interchangeability with standard IEC mechanism. It is one of the rugged mechanism that is used like induction motors. However, it is provided sensorless for ensuring excellent response to the need for continuity of production.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for energy-efficient motors. Synchronous electric motors are the key component in providing higher efficiency to industrial applications, which are controlled by variable-speed drives. On an average, synchronous electric motors in industrial applications utilize 60%-65% of the total consumed industrial electricity. The maximum energy efficiency is attained using variable speed drive systems. The development in rotor structure of synchronous electric motors helps in eliminating rotor cage losses, which benefit in increasing efficiency and compactness.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is requirement of DC source for excitation. With constant speed, synchronous electric motors are unaffected by load conditions, and thereby the operations result in the superior quality of products. However, the basic magnetic field is obtained by DC excitation rather than from armature airgap, which is existing in the induction motors. Synchronous electric motors are better than induction motors in terms of system voltage regulation and power factor correction. However, their starting is more complicated and hence use a DC source for excitation.
