DUBLIN, Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "World Electric Motors - Market Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.

The world electric motors market is estimated to garner $129 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 5.3% during 2015-2020

In 2014, Asia Pacific accounted for the highest revenue generating region in world electric motors market followed by Europe. The segment of hermetic motor would register a rapid CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. Among the different applications, motor vehicles constitutes the largest share of over 50% in the global electric motors market.

Presently, the demand for energy efficient electric motors drives the electric motors market. Although these motors are expensive as compared to conventional motors, the long term environmental benefits offered by premium motors tend to outweigh their initial higher cost. Energy efficient motors increase the efficiency of the machines by approximately 20% as compared to standard motors, which, in-turn, saves the cost of energy consumed. The demand for energy efficient electric motors can be attributed to factors such as the growing electricity cost and rising automobile fuel prices. AC motors are largely used across various industrial applications, whereas DC motors generally find major application in the automobile sector.

AC motors accounted for the highest revenue generating motor among all type of motors in 2014. Synchronous and Induction are the two main types of AC motors discussed in the report. Brushed and brushless are two major type DC motors discussed in the report. Owing to low maintenance cost, brushless DC motors are majorly used in small applications across various sectors, which has led the brushless type of DC motor to generate higher revenue in DC motor segment. Among all the three types, Hermetic motors are expected to witness the highest CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period (2015 - 2020). The growth would be driven by the increasing use of HVAC applications across the world, in turn creating demand for hermetic motors.

Fractional Horsepower (FHP) Output motors are popularly used for small applications across medical, automotive, residential and industrial manufacturing sectors, occupying nearly 88% of market share in output power segment of electric motors market. However, the Integral Horsepower (IHP) Output motor would register a higher growth over the forecast period due to the increasing demand for the use of IHP motors in water industry and for irrigation purposes.

The motor vehicle sector generates nearly 52% of the revenue amongst others in application segment of electric motors market on account of the consistently increasing adoption for electric motors in the automobile sector. Leading car makers such as Tesla, Ford, Nissan and Chevrolet are engaged in the development of novel electric cars. Favourable government initiatives and supportive regulatory policies are key factors that are boosting the growth of the electric vehicle market, further supplementing the demand of electric motors.
