AC Drives - Low Voltage

The Low Voltage AC Drives Market Research Study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries.

Low voltage AC drives are applied in process and discrete manufacturing industries, commercial buildings, and municipal infrastructure.  They provide speed, motion, and torque control for equipment, such as fans, pumps, compressors, conveyors, kilns, centrifuges, mixers, hoists, cranes, extruders, printing and textile machines.  This research covers hardware, software, and services for the low voltage AC drives market, which comprises the micro (<5 kW), low-end (5-40 kW), midrange (>40-200 kW), high-end (>200 kW–600 kW), and mega (>600 kW) power segments. 

Need for Energy Efficiency and Government Regulations to Push the Adoption Low Voltage AC Drives

Increasing energy efficiency in all processes is crucial in preventing climate change. Governmental and public decision-makers are also increasingly working to direct the industry toward using more energy-efficient operating methods.  AC drives play a major role in gaining a high degree of energy efficiency.  The need for new infrastructure, a safe food and water supply, energy-efficient and climate-friendly solutions, as well as an increasing population and new investments across industries will drive growth in the low voltage AC drives market.

Low Voltage AC Drives Strategic Issues

Low Voltage AC Drives Market TrendsIn addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the low voltage AC drives market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Users: Cybersecurity Threats

Even though connected infrastructure is essential, end-users and operators are reluctant toward Industrial IoT adoption.  Cybersecurity and perceived loss of intellectual property rights are a major threat to the adoption of Industrial IoT.  Suppliers need to take cybersecurity into account and the steps needed to increase safety and how the devices detect, analyze, and combat threats.

Strategic Issue for Suppliers: Trade Conflicts Put a Drag on the AC Drives Market 

The trade conflict between the US and China have led to shifts in supply chains and insecurity in markets all over the world.  The slowdown in China, the world’s largest trading nation, has affected countries such as Germany, Japan, Australia, and Singapore, that rely on China for exports.  Delayed capital spending and shifts in supply chains have slowed down the manufacturing sector in the country, affecting supplier revenues.

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: Economic Decline Due to COVID-19  

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused disruptions to global supply chains and business operations.  While the pandemic did not impact the 2019 demand for low voltage AC drives, the market projections do take into account industry trends with ARC’s best estimates for how COVID-19 will impact the AC drives market in different industries.
