Industry Insights

The global DC motor control devices market size was valued at USD 775.2 million in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period. The primary trend expected to drive demand is increased competitiveness of markets that incorporate electric motors, such as industrial, automotive, and aerospace. This factor is also leading to consideration of new control strategies, requirement for energy-efficient motors, and need for cost-effective motor control devices.

Numerous key players are engaged in developing an integrated motor drive technology that offers several benefits such as cost-effectiveness, increased efficiency, and compactness. These advancements are expected to further drive product demand. Additionally, rising demand for electric vehicles and implementation of stringent government regulations pertaining to use of energy-efficient products are expected to bolster market growth over the forecast period.

North America DC motor control devices market

Brushless DC motors offer dynamic performance and are expected to gradually replace stepper motors and conventional DC motors in various applications. Growing adoption of these variants by end-use industries such asautomotive, aerospace and defense, and healthcare is also expected to positively impact market growth. In addition to this, the ongoing trend of using direct-drive and servo motors in appliances, e-mobility applications, and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) is expected to play a significant role in instigating product demand.

One of the challenges hindering growth prospects is uptake of AC drives that are leveraging advancements in control and power conversion techniques and are gradually gaining more prominence. However, this is a relatively moderate challenge as DC drives have been deployed across several industries and their complete replacement by AC motors is not expected to happen anytime soon.

Application Insights

The consumer electronics segment accounted for a major share in 2018 and is expected to continue its dominance in the DC motor control devices market over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing technological advancements and growing awareness regarding energy conservation among the population. Additionally, rising demand for compact and portable devices for vacuum cleaners and fans, HVAC, digital storage devices, and home appliances is expected to create additional revenue for market players over the forecast period.

The medical devices segment is expected to grow at a steady pace over the forecast period. Unprecedented advances in technology, coupled with retirement of baby boomers, have created growth potential for companies supplying components for medical applications. This marketplace is characterized by production of various devices, ranging from breast pumps to fitness equipment, and is expected to provide high growth avenues for market players.

Regional Insights

In 2018, the North America market accounted for more than 25.0% of the overall revenue and is anticipated to exhibit a considerable CAGR over the forecast years. The region’s growth can be attributed to shift in customer preference toward smart solutions that have resulted in improved motor designs. Automation and an uptick in disposable medical devices are also driving demand for affordable and miniature motors in U.S. and Canada. This is expected to catapult regional growth in the coming years.

Global DC motor control devices market

The Asia Pacific market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of over 7.0% over the forecast period. Increasing government investments in manufacturing electric vehicles and controlling fuel emissions is anticipated to boost market growth in the region over the forecast period. Moreover, rising penetration of DC motor control devices in various applications, including consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and medical devices, is anticipated to drive the market in Asia Pacific.

DC Motor Control Devices Market Share Insights

Prominent players in the market include ABB, Eaton Corporation Plc, General Electric, and OMRON Corporation. These key players are aggressively investing in research and development of DC type controllers in order to introduce compact products.
