The global brushless DC motors market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 8.15 Billion by 2021. This growth is attributed to increased usage of brushless DC motors in wide range of applications in industries such as chemicals, paper & pulp, marine, automotive, food processing, semiconductors, electronics manufacturing, and aerospace.

The report segments the brushless DC motor market on the basis of type into inner rotor and outer rotor brushless DC motor. The nner rotor brushless DC motors are widely used in applications where faster acceleration and deceleration of speed and position, high starting torque, and reversible action is required. Due to these reasons inner rotor brushless DC motor segment is projected to dominate the brushless DC motor market.

The brushless DC motors market is segmented based on speed into <500 RPM, 501 – 2000 RPM, 2001 – 10000 RPM, >10000 RPM. The 2001 – 10000 RPM segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing demand for highly reliable, quite, highly energy efficient, and compact equipment in medical devices segment is expected to propel the demand of 2001 – 10000 RPM segment brushless DC motors during the forecast period.

The report segments the brushless DC motors market based on end-user into manufacturing, medical devices, automotive, consumer electronics, and others. Manufacturing segment accounted for largest market share in 2015, due increased demand for automation in chemicals, paper & pulp, marine, automotive, food processing, semiconductors, electronics manufacturing, and aerospace industries. Consumer electronics segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for compact and energy efficient product for digital storage, HVAC, and home appliance such as vacuum cleaner and fans. This segment is expected to create new revenue pockets for the brushless DC motors market during the forecast period.

In this report, the brushless DC motors market has been analyzed with respect to six regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East, and Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global brushless DC motors market during the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for consumer electronics and automotive product in China, India, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. The North American market is projected to grow at the second-highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021 due to increasing demand for highly sophisticated medical devices. Growing economies, such as China, India, and Taiwan are the most promising markets for brushless DC motors.

Electric control system is required for brushless DC motors, due to this, these motors become expensive than conventional brush DC motors. This factor can be a restrain for brushless DC motors market. Large unorganized brushless DC motors market sector offers low quality and inexpensive product for untapped local markets. These grey market players overpower big players in terms of price competitiveness and the local distribution network maintained by them, which is a major challenge for the brushless DC motors market.

Leading players in the brushless DC motors market include Johnson Electric (China), Ametek (U.S.), Nidec Corporation (Japan), Minebea (France), Allied Motion Technologies Inc. (U.S.), and Maxon Motor AG (Switzerland). New product launch was the strategy most commonly adopted by top players in the market from 2013 to 2016. It was followed by expansion.
