by Team Fact.MR

According to the latest study by Fact.MR, global demand of EV traction motor is estimated to exceed US$ 6,000 Mn in 2019, up from US$ 5,391.9 Mn in 2018. Sales of electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles, upheld by a host of technological features and claims of optimal performance, are likely to boost growth of EV traction motor market in 2019 and beyond. In addition, increasing regulations and norms put in place for effective emission controls are working in favor of hybrid and electric vehicles, paving lucrative avenues for growth of EV traction motor market.

Governmental schemes to incentivize and subsidize owners of electric vehicles is a key aspect underpinning growth of EV traction motor market. Most of these incentives and subsidies include tax exemptions, tax credits, concessions, and additional benefits, which play a vital role in exerting positive influence on customer decision-making. The EV traction motor industry is likely to benefit from these incentives with regard to revenue generation, finds the report.

Automakers Prefer EV Traction Motors with High Voltage Ratings

According to the research study, energy efficacy is emerging as one of the focal points of automakers, on account of its importance in reducing of greenhouse emissions. High voltages provide a healthy boost to the efficiency levels, which is a primary reason for automakers preferring motors of high voltage ratings over the ones with low voltage ratings. Both electric and hybrid electric vehicles are based on high voltage battery systems, which implies that high voltage levels would be required for generation of sufficient power to run the vehicles. Moreover, motors with high voltage ratings have wirings that are relatively uncomplicated and lighter, which continues to be a key benefit for the automakers. The global sales of high voltage EV traction motors are estimated to exceed US$ 3,700 Mn in 2019, estimates the Fact.MR study.
