U.S. Brushless DC Motor Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

BLDC motors simultaneously offer optimum efficiency and reliability, which proves to be economical in majority of applications, such as sunroof actuators, air conditioners, and window lifters. The HVAC industry is heavily dependent on brushless DC motors. It is the primary component that powers blowers to move air. It drives compressors to compress refrigerants and powers pumps to move water for hot water & chilled water applications and fuel oil. Additionally, universal motors run on DC or AC and are assembled with brushless DC motors. They are extensively used in HVAC machinery & equipment and a higher output of these products helps boost the overall electric motor demand.

The increasing adoption of EVs addresses many problems, such as environmental pollution, global warming, and oil dependency. The U.S. government has initiated and implemented different policies to encourage and stimulate EV adoption and production. The advantages of BLDC motors, such as higher peak point efficiency and less rotor heat, prove critical in various applications, specifically in hybrid and EVs, which are projected to increase their adoption in hybrid vehicles over the coming years. Moreover, BLDC motors are preferred by EV manufacturers owing to their greater efficiency, high operating speed, low maintenance, and quick response.

The rising adoption of BLDC motors is restricted by several market restraints. These include the higher initial cost compared to traditional brushed DC motors, complexity of control systems requiring specialized knowledge, potential compatibility issues in retrofitting existing systems, electromagnetic interference concerns, susceptibility to supply chain disruptions for critical components, limitations in torque at low speeds, challenges in heat dissipation, need for compliance with regulatory standards, and limited power density in certain high-power applications. Addressing these constraints is essential for enhancing the broader acceptance of BLDC motors across diverse industries.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market growth stage is moderate and rate of growth is accelerating. The market for brushless DC motor in the U.S. is fairly fragmented. It consists of many big as well as small players that are vying for increased market share. There is a low-to-moderate degree of M&A activity seen in the U.S. market by the major players, who desire to increase their market share as well as gain access to the latest technological developments.

U.S. Brushless DC Motor Market Concentration & Characteristics

The degree of innovations in the market is quite high such as with the introduction of sensorless control in BLDC motors, which has allowed novel advancements in control algorithms that allow sensorless operation, without requiring any external sensors, thereby increasing its reliability and cost savings.

BLDC motors eliminate the need for brushes compared to traditional brushed DC motors, resulting in reduced friction and energy losses, thereby increasing their efficiency. This enhanced efficiency plays an important role in applications where conserving energy is vital, such as consumer electronics, industrial automation, and electric vehicles. The priority on sustainability and energy efficiency has propelled the demand for BLDC motors in these sectors.

The threat from substitutes is low in certain applications where BLDC motors are essentially required. AC motors can be a major threat due to fewer components that cause lesser wear and tear, thereby protecting the motor and ultimately increasing its life. BLDC motors have limited applicability in higher-end and complex machinery.

The BLDC motor market has high end-user concentration, which spans across several industries. The automotive sector is primarily the major consumer, with BLDC motors being the integral components in EVs and numerous automotive systems, emphasizing precise control and efficiency. Industrial automation is hugely dependent on BLDC motors for their position control and precise speed in manufacturing processes and robotics. With latest developments in cooling techniques and materials, BLDC motors can operate reliably in extreme temperatures, which further expands their applications in automotive sectors and aerospace. BLDC motors integrated with IoT have capabilities of remote control and monitoring, optimizing energy usage in smart home appliances.

Rotor Type Insights

In terms of rotor type, the market is further bifurcated into inner rotor and outer rotor segments. The inner rotor motors have the rotor located at the core, surrounded by the stator winding. At the same time, the outer rotor motors have the rotor external to the motor, with the stator on the inside. Outer rotor motors have a larger rotor diameter, allowing for more magnets and higher output power in a compact size. However, outer rotor motors have poor heat radiation properties and larger inertia, making it difficult to start and stop quickly.

Power Output Insights

In terms of revenue, the less than 750 watt segment dominated the market in 2023 with a revenue share of 47.86% and is also anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. This large share is attributed to the extensive use of the products in numerous applications, such as power tools, machine tools, domestic appliances, electric cars, pumps, compressors, HVAC applications, fans, and automated robots. The high-efficiency BLDC motors are gaining importance due to their long operating life, lower maintenance, low energy consumption, and a higher tolerance for fluctuating voltages.

Followed by the less than 750 Watt segment, the above 75 kW segment also is expected to witness significant growth from 2024 to 2030. This is due to the better performance offered, in terms of reliability and efficiency over the traditional DC motors with the same power output rating. The above 75 kW BLDC motors are used in diverse industrial applications, such as grinding, drilling, and milling, deployed in industrial machinery, such as CNC machines. Moreover, government policies regarding energy conservation and rising consumer awareness are also anticipated to fuel the market growth over the forecast period.

Speed Insights

Based on speed, the market is categorized based on the speed ranges that include less than 500 RPM, ranging from 501 to 2,000 RPM, ranging from 2,001 to 10,000 RPM, and speeds exceeding 10,000 RPM. Motors with speeds less than 500 RPM are commonly used in applications requiring low-speed operation and high torque, such as industrial machinery and power tools. The 501-2,000 RPM range has a broad range of applications in automotive systems, consumer electronics, and manufacturing equipment. Brushless BLDC motors in the 2,001-10,000 RPM range are frequently used in medical equipment, providing the necessary power and precision required in applications like gas analyzers and dental instruments. Motors with speeds exceeding 10,000 RPM are less common but have specialized applications, such as high-speed industrial machinery or specific automotive applications.

End-use Insights

In terms of revenue, the motor vehicle segment dominated the market in 2023 with a revenue share of 27.8%. It is also anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR of 8.0% from 2024 to 2030. The automobile industry uses motors of various types and specifications for diverse applications. Brushless DC motors are preferred over conventional powertrains mainly because of the absence of brushes resulting in less friction. Reduction in friction causes less wear and tear of the brushless DC motor ultimately resulting in a reduction of maintenance required. Therefore, these motors are used in many applications in motorized vehicles.

U.S. Brushless DC Motor Market share and size, 2023

The motor vehicle end-use segment is further sub-segmented into safety, comfort, and performance. The comfort segment held the largest revenue share in 2023 and is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR by 2030. Comfort motors have applications primarily in mirror adjusters, sun-roof actuators, automatic window operations, air conditioning, and HVAC systems. Multiple powertrains are required for the abovementioned applications, which are subsequently expected to drive the demand for brushless DC motors in vehicles by 2030.

The industrial machinery segment held a substantial market share of more than 24% in 2023 and is anticipated to grow steadily from 2024 to 2030. This growth is attributed to the deployment of such equipment in complex industrial applications such as feeder drives, extruders, and robotics. In addition, technological advancements have resulted in increased efficiency of these motors, which is further expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.
