12 Key Predictions from Fact.MR’s Report on Micro Motor Market
by Team Fact.MR
Fact.MR’s recently published report estimates the global micro motor market to register a moderate expansion at a little over 4% CAGR during the forecast period 2017 to 2022. Sales of micro motors will account for over US$ 30,000 Mn revenues in 2017; by 2022 this number is expected to incur average increment.
The adoption of brushless DC motors in electric vehicles has witnessed a robust expansion over the past few years. Micro motor manufacturers have been focusing on the development of portable charging tools related to electric vehicles, owing to the concerns associated with future environmental protection. In addition, numerous technological innovations in piezoelectric motors providing high precision have been introduced in the market. For instance, the M3 smart module platform – “SQUIGGLE motor”, developed by New Scale Technologies, has become the revolutionary piezoelectric small-sized micro motor, which delivers high performance. These incidences are expected to propel growth of the market during the forecast period.
Continuous advancements in electronic technology have prompted the micro motor industry to witness mutual merger & acquisition, and adjustment processes with players from drive manufacturing industry. Introduction of drive-to micro motors' modern design has boosted demand for manufacturing & production processes, and materials required for micro motors, which in turn will fuel growth of the global market for micro motors. In addition, growing number of car sales driven the application of electrical equipment. In vehicles, automatic & quantitative fuel injection system have replaced traditional carburetors, and small motors have replaced the ABS systems. These factors will further augment growth of the market.
