AC Drives - Medium Voltage

The Medium 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.

Medium voltage AC drives are applied in process and discrete manufacturing industries and provide speed, motion, and torque control for equipment such as fans, pumps, compressors, conveyors, kilns, centrifuges, mixers, hoists, cranes, and extruders.  Medium voltage AC drives are predominantly higher power drives that are greater than 0.2 MW.  The heavy industries such as mining, metals, electric power generation, cement & glass, water & wastewater, marine, and oil & gas widely use medium voltage AC drives.  This global market research report covers hardware, software, and services for the medium voltage AC drives market with the following power ranges: >0.2-0.6 MW; >0.6-3 MW; >3-7.5 MW; >7.5-10 MW; >10 MW-20 MW; and >20 MW.  

Medium Voltage AC Drives: Global Megatrends Will Reverse the Market Decline

Medium Voltage AC Drives MarketThe medium voltage AC drives market experienced a decline as demand from industries stumbled due to pandemic led restricted industrial activities, lockdowns, factory shutdowns, and suppressed orders. 

Encouraging government responses with effective monetary and fiscal policies will improve global market conditions in manufacturing and capital investments across many industries.  The need for new infrastructure and water supply, increasing population, and energy-efficient and climate-friendly solutions will drive growth in the medium voltage AC drives market during the forecast period.  

The market is dominated by ABB, General Electric, Rockwell Automation, Siemens, and TMEIC.  Overall, ARC’s analysis suggests that a broad range of products and solutions clearly enable suppliers to garner defensible leadership positions.

Medium Voltage AC Drives Strategic Issues

Medium Voltage AC Drives Market TrendsIn addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the medium 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 adopting Industrial IoT.  Cybersecurity and perceived loss of intellectual property rights are major threat to the adoption of Industrial IoT.  Suppliers need to take cybersecurity into account and steps to increase safety and how the devices detect, analyze, and combat threats.

Strategic Issue for Suppliers: Uncertain Outlook for the Oil and Gas Industry 

The oil and gas industry witnessed decline in 2020.  Recovery in oil and gas demand is still uncertain, with reemergence of mutant strains continues to be seen across the globe.  

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused disruptions to global supply chains and business operations. While the pandemic impacted the 2020 demand for medium voltage AC drives, the market projections do take into account industry trends with ARC’s best estimates for how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact the market in different industry types.
