Report Highlights

The global 'AC drive' market is estimated to reach  USD 22.1 billion  by 2022 with a CAGR of 7.1%. Increased operational efficiency and cost savings from using AC drives is one of the major driving factors for this market.

Urbanization, industrialization, ever increasing demand for energy along with the rising electricity prices and regulations on energy efficiency are some of the factors driving the 'AC drives' market.

The high potential of alternating current drives  to reduce energy consumption, greater return on investment (ROI) and enhanced efficiency, provide opportunities for the upgradation & retrofitting market. In addition, saving a considerable amount of energy is expected to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Moreover, the efficient use of energy is a precondition for global growth and increased prosperity.

By region, the market is segmented into  North America,  South America,  Europe,  Asia-Pacific  (APAC), and the  Middle East  &  Africa. APAC accounts for a major share owing to urbanization and significant development in industries such as manufacturing, cement, metal processing, food & beverage, paper & pulp and textile followed by  Europe  and  North America. Moreover, the  Middle East  &  Africa  market is expected to grow at a faster pace, underpinned by large-scale infrastructure spending along with oil & gas operations.

Despite short-term economic slowdown due to various factors such as the decline in oil prices, structural change in  China, Brexit etc., emerging markets will continue to drive the economic growth as they are constantly   investing in long-term in infrastructure and basic industries.

By voltage, 'AC drives' market has been primarily segmented into low and medium voltage. Significant adoption of medium voltage drives in energy-intensive industries such as metal, cement, and power etc. is pushing the growth of 'AC drives' market.

Furthermore, the market has also been segmented on the basis of power rating into low power (Up to 40kW), medium power (41-200kW), and high power 'AC drives' (Above 200kW).

By end-use industry, the 'AC drives' market has been segmented into oil & gas, water & wastewater, power generation, building automation, food & beverage, metals & mining, chemicals & petrochemicals and 'others,' which constitute industries such as cement, textile, and pulp & paper industries. Oil & gas is the largest end-user for the 'AC drives' market. The water & wastewater industry is expected to have a high growth rate in the wake of rapid urbanization and industrialization.
