AC Drives Market Data and Studies

AC drives are applied in process, hybrid, and discrete manufacturing industries, commercial buildings, and municipal infrastructure.  They increase productivity and efficiency of operations by providing speed, motion, and torque control for equipment, such as fans, pumps, compressors, conveyors, kilns, centrifuges, mixers, hoists, cranes, extruders, and industry specific machinery.  Current pandemic has put industrial markets in chaos in recent months and has created new challenges for AC drives suppliers and users.  However, the need for new infrastructure, safe food and water supply, increasing population, and energy-efficient and climate-friendly solutions continues to create demand for AC drives in a wide range of industries. Governmental and public decision-makers are also increasingly working to direct the industry toward using more energy-efficient operating methods.  ARC research shows that AC drives not only play a major role toward gaining a high degree of energy efficiency, but also supports to meet challenges of “digital future”.

ARC Advisory Group’s suite of AC drives-related market analysis reports and supplier selection guides are invaluable tools for AC drives suppliers and end users trying to navigate the ever changing market dynamics resulting from the trend towards the digital transformation, global pandemics, trade wars, currency exchange rate fluctuations, and dynamic economic swings.  ARC’s AC drives related market data and reports are invaluable tools that used by suppliers and users.  Suppliers use data and reports to benchmark themselves against the competition and optimize the opportunities in turbulent market dynamics.  Users use data and reports to learn industrial, regional, and technology trends to help guide them in selection of suppliers and products such that it maximizes their return on investments on capital expenditure.
