DC Drive Market: Introduction
A DC drive is an electronic device used to control & regulate the speed of a DC motor by varying the current flow through the motor. DC drives are mainly used in the manufacturing industry to control and regulate electronic devices such as fans, pumps, machine spindles and conveyers during the production processes. One of the key advantages of DC drive is reduced energy consumption by regulating motor speed at variable loads. Moreover, DC drives increase the service life of the motor system and thereby reduce the associated operational cost. DC drives increase the overall system reliability and reduce technology cost by delivering peak performance and integrated intelligence for maximum availability. DC drives are used across several industrial segments including oil & gas, power generations, chemicals, metal & mining and automotive.
DC Drive Market: Dynamics
Increasing demand for electricity and energy and rising cost of energy are expected to drive the growth of the DC drive market at a significant pace. Moreover, the advantages of using DC drives such as enhanced efficiency and reduced energy consumption are expected create a huge opportunity for the growth of the market in the years to come. The increasing adoption of electronic vehicles is expected to further boost the demand for DC drives over the forecast period. Moreover, with the increasing adoption of automation and modernization in production and manufacturing industries, the demand for DC drives is expected to increase in the near future.
One of the key trends observed in the market is the increasing demand for end-to-end systems rather than stand-alone products. Additionally, market participants are offering tailored solutions for DC drive end-users. Application-specific DC drive offers more energy efficiency than general DC drives. Some of the key challenges faced by DC drive market participants include the reducing profit margins, increasing raw material prices and increasing adoption of AC drives in industries, owing to lower operational and maintenance costs. However, the DC drives market is expected to be benefited by a large installed base of DC motors in the industrial sector. Moreover, manufacturers across the DC drive market are focusing on the development of advanced design, modular energy efficient DC drives. For instance, in 2017, Danfoss Group launched “VLT FlexConcept Advanced”, a simple, modular and easy to install DC drive for the beverage industry.
