Company Information

Detailed analyses and profiling of additional market players (up to five)

The global VFD market is projected to reach a market size of USD 27.57 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.87%, from an estimated USD 20.73 billion in 2018. This growth can be attributed to the increased usage of VFDs across major industry verticals, rapid industrialization and urbanization, along with increasing investments on infrastructure development, and shifting focus on energy efficiency.

The report segments the VFD market, by voltage, into low and medium voltages. The low-voltage segment is expected to hold the largest market share (by volume) by 2023. Increased investment on the growth of infrastructural activities, renewable energy production, and growing need for energy efficiency would propel the demand for the AC drive segment.

The VFD market, by power rating, is segmented into micro-power drive, low-power drive, and medium-power drive, and high-power drive. The low-power drive segment is expected to dominate the VFD market by 2023. The low-power drive segment provides higher energy savings at low capital costs and better process control to various industries such as building, automation, oil & gas, food & beverage, and pulp & paper. Increase in production toward infrastructure activities in emerging countries would drive the low power drive segment market.

The industrial segment is one of the major end-users of the VFD market. Also, this segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Increasing demand for electric motors from various industries such as paper & pulp, marine, discrete manufacturing, cement, and others is likely to increase the demand for VFDs for industrial applications

In this report, the VFD market has been analyzed with respect to 6 regions, namely, North America, Europe, South America, Asia Pacific, Africa, and Middle East. The market in Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest VFD market, from 2018 to 2023. Countries such as China, India, and Japan, are heavily investing on the renewable energy, which would positively impact the VFD market. Also, massive investments on the manufacturing industry is also one of the major factors that would propel the growth of the VFD market. For instance, as per Asian Development Bank, the region will need an investment of USD 26 trillion from 2016 to 2030 or USD 1.7 trillion per year to maintain its growth momentum and respond to climate change.

Variable Frequency Drives Market

Stagnant growth of the oil & gas industry due to declining oil prices has resulted in a decrease in exploration & production activities and could act as restraints for the VFD market. The leading players in the VFD market include ABB (Switzerland), Siemens (Germany), Schneider Electric (France), Danfoss (US), and Rockwell (US). New product launches is the most commonly adopted strategy by the top players. This was followed by contracts & agreements and investments & expansions.
