DC Motor Control Devices Market Trends

The global DC motor control devices market size was valued at USD 1.28 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% from 2023 to 2030. The primary trend expected to drive demand is increased competitiveness of markets incorporating electric motors, such as industrial, automotive, and aerospace. This factor also leads to considering new control strategies, the requirement for energy-efficient motors, and the need for cost-effective motor control devices. Numerous key players are developing integrated motor drive technology that offers several benefits, such as cost-effectiveness, increased efficiency, and compactness. These advancements are expected to drive product demand further. Additionally, rising demand for electric vehicles and the implementation of stringent government regulations about using energy-efficient products are expected to bolster market growth over the forecast period.

U.S. DC motor control devices market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Brushless DC motors offer dynamic performance and are expected to replace stepper and conventional DC motors in various applications gradually. The growing adoption of these variants by end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, and healthcare is also expected to impact market growth positively. In addition, 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 an uptake of AC drives leveraging advancements in control and power conversion techniques and 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 expected to happen soon.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a mixed impact on the market for DC motor control devices. The global supply chains for these devices were significantly disrupted, leading to delays in production and distribution. The pandemic caused a slowdown in industrial activities, with many industries facing temporary shutdowns or reduced operations to comply with social distancing measures. It reduced the demand for DC motor control devices, particularly in sectors heavily impacted by the pandemic, such as automotive, aerospace, and construction. The economic uncertainties brought about by the pandemic have also led to a cautious approach to investment decisions, further affecting the demand for these devices. However, there was a notable shift toward automation during the pandemic.
