New Generation of Smarter Products Accelerates Soft Starters Market

Soft starters are used in industrial applications to start/stop electric motors and protect expensive motorized machinery from initial inrush current surges. Leading suppliers are striving to differentiate their products through deep application knowledge and increased intelligence and connectivity. Soft starters help reduce energy consumption while protecting pumps, motors, machines, and other associated electrical equipment. This, in turn, reduces operating costs and extends the useful service lives of the equipment to improve return on assets. Soft starters have also shifted to digital technology that encompasses microprocessors for providing customers with numerous advanced functions and features.

"Many soft starters now include network options so that they can be connected to plant control systems. The integration of digital technology into soft starters is helping suppliers develop soft starters that are compact, modular in design, and designed for customer flexibility. These soft starters have the ability to provide advanced monitoring and protection, superior communications capabilities, and also have an “energy saver” mode that increase efficiency and reduce downtime. Automation helps create a path for the transition toward more connected and smarter systems that can help end users make informed decisions, optimize operations, and improve customer experience, while supporting profitable new service models for suppliers. As more manufacturers recognize the benefits of predictive maintenance, demand for intelligent solutions will further drive growth in the market," according to Siddhartha Maiti, Market Analyst and key author of ARC's Soft Starters Market Research Report.
