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, and 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.

Low Voltage AC Drives: Intelligent Drives Optimize Productivity and Improve Efficiency

ARC Advisory Group research on the Low Voltage AC Drives market reveals that intelligent AC drives with advanced features monitor operational performance, optimize productivity, and enhance efficiency. Innovations in sensor instrumentation, embedded advanced control algorithms, and predictive condition monitoring are critical for connected infrastructure. Connectivity has become a necessity and AC drives are evolving into intelligent sensors, providing real-time drive data as well as data of connected machines, allowing for more visibility into the current condition of the equipment, enabling condition-based monitoring or predictive maintenance, ultimately benefiting plant operation.

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.

Leverage Industrial IoT or Industry 4.0    

AC drives products are being updated with new features to fulfill many markets’ demands and increase their value proposition, such as the growing demand for smart connected products based on, for example, Industrial IoT or Industry 4.0. Smart connected products provide opportunities to increase operational efficiency from the plant floor to the supply chain by optimizing data, information, and analytics ranging.

Suppliers Need to Embrace Digitalization    

Digitalization helps create a path for the transition toward more connected and smarter systems to drive increased end user value as digitalizing of the assets and use of cloud-based architecture with predictive analytics enables end users to monitor the health and performance of assets, allowing them to predict equipment failures before they happen, minimizing unnecessary shutdowns that can cost millions of dollars.

Implement Robust Cybersecurity    

The new Industrial IoT-enabled connectivity, data management, and predictive analytics capabilities increase customer value. However, this connected environment also makes AC drives systems more vulnerable due to additional entry points for external attacks. Consequently, the successful use of AC drives systems within an overall Industrial IoT ecosystem requires robust cybersecurity. Some automation suppliers collaborate with cloud providers to provide security and offer proactive security products to monitor and manage cybersecurity risks.
