AC Drives - Low Power

The Low Power 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 power AC drives are applied in the 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 machinery, and textile machines.  This research covers hardware, software, and services for the low power AC drives market, which comprises the micro (<5 kW), low-end (5-40 kW), and midrange (>40-200 kW) drives. 

Need for Energy Efficiency and Government Regulations to Push Adoption of Low Power AC Drives 

Increasing energy efficiency in all processes is crucial in preventing climate change. Governments 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 toward gaining a high degree of energy efficiency.  The need for new infrastructure, safe food and water supply, as well as an increasing population, and energy-efficient and climate-friendly solutions, and new investments across industries will drive the growth of the low power AC drives market.

Low Power AC Drives Market Strategic Issues

Low Power AC Drives Market TrendsIn addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the low power 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 the adoption of Industrial IoT.  Cybersecurity and the perceived loss of intellectual property rights are a major threat to the adoption of Industrial IoT.  Suppliers need to take cybersecurity into account and work on the steps needed to increase safety, as well as 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 created a global insecurity in various markets.  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 power 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.
