Global frequency converter is one of the high growth markets owing to distinct end-users across all verticals of the industry from developing economies, such as China, India, Brazil and South Africa. Static frequency converter, one of the types, is gaining market attraction due to increasing electricity prices all across the world as well as growing awareness on reduction of air and noise pollution, especially by aerospace & defense and marine/offshore end-users.

Static frequency converters are expected to grow higher in developing economies from Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Economies from these regions are spending more on modernization of infrastructure such as, manufacturing & production facilities, ports, airports, etc. The electric devices and equipment used at these industries need specific current frequency to run efficiently. Need for clean and efficient process is expected to drive the demand for frequency converters. Above mentioned drivers are expected to enhance the global frequency converter market to USD 23.2 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 9.1% from 2015 to 2020. In 2014, the market size of global frequency converter was valued at USD 13.7 Billion.

Frequency converters are useful in distinctive industrial applications, to match the frequency of power supply with the frequency of any electrical equipment connected. Demand to run the electric machinery and equipment effectively and cost efficiently across diverse sectors is the primary reason behind a rise in the usage of frequency converters. Since more than a decade, frequency converters are being used in industries such as aerospace & defense, process industry, power & energy, oil & gas, marine/offshore, and traction among others. These are basically used to convert the input supply frequency from one level to the desired frequency, as per the requirement and the specification of the equipment or machinery.

The frequency converter market is segmented on the basis of two types; first type is static frequency converter; it consists of components such as a rectifier, a DC bus or internal power storage battery, an inverter, and a control panel. Rectifiers and inverters are a combination of capacitor banks and semiconductor switches (such as GTO, power transistor, and IGBT,), along with diodes and control electronics. The other type is rotary frequency converter; it is robust in design and is mostly used in gas turbine power plants, offshore activities, and traction power supply. Although other industries use rotary frequency converters, they prefer static frequency converters for their compactness.

Frequency converter is used in varied end-use industries depending on the frequency requirement of the equipment connected to the converter. The end-users of frequency converters, considered for study include aerospace & defense, power & energy, oil & gas, traction, process industry, marine/offshore, research & testing laboratories, and grid interconnections among others. Differences in electrical standards of mains electricity supply worldwide, international trading, and an increase in the demand for energy-efficient frequency converters are driving the market. The global frequency converter market is projected to reach USD 23.2 Billion by 2020, from an around USD 15.0 Billion in 2015, at a CAGR of 9.1% from 2015 to 2020.

Frequency Converter Market

In 2014, in the global frequency converter market, Europe accounted for the largest share due to the massive investments from Germany and U.K. towards expansion of the aerospace & defense, manufacturing, marine/offshore, and energy infrastructures. North America was the second largest market in 2014, by value.

Frequency Converter market has been analyzed for different geographies including North and Latin Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa.  The market size has been further analyzed in detail for key countries.

The study also includes profiling of key market players, including ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), Danfoss A/S (Denmark), General Electric Company (U.S.), and Siemens AG (Germany). Other key players that offer frequency converters at different output levels, and also provide services for various end-users worldwide include Magnus Power (U.K.), Sinepower (Portugal), Aplab Ltd. (India), Power System & Control (Virginia), and Piller GmbH (Germany).
