Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a negative growth of -7.3% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 12.27 billion in 2021 to USD 21.64 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 8.4% during the 2021-2028 period. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Electric motors are an integral part of residential, commercial, and industrial processes required to transform electrical into mechanical energy. The electromechanical device comprises various components such as rotor, stator, windings, bearings, commutators, etc. The motors are available in numerous configurations segregated based on their uses and application areas to provide desired power ranges, speeds, and efficiency for the operations. Consequently, high speed motors include special systems to deliver high rotational speeds and managed torque powered with low voltage and high voltages to operate fast-paced machinery effectively.

COVID-19 Impact:

Investment Downturns and Supply Chain Interruptions to Disrupt Demand for High Speed Motor

The sudden spread of the deadly disease Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has adversely impacted global operations. The contagious virus originated in China and left operations across various countries halted, significantly affecting their financial ecosystems. Numerous governments have introduced stringent actions, including state & national level lockdowns, the shutdown of manufacturing plants, social distancing regulations, and limited global interactions, among many more, to curb the spread of the dangerous virus.

Consequently, the market is projected to be substantially impaired by the pandemic. The market is considerably distributed across different countries & regions, and cash deficits across small and large players have impaired the demand for high speed motor at various levels. However, the industry participants are continuously striving to adopt different measures to abridge their revenue gap attributed to the pandemic and maintain the fast-paced sales of different high-speed motor systems.

For instance, in August 2020, an industry major Nidec Industrial Solutions, announced establishing an advanced facility in Ohio, U.S., with a total investment of up to USD 12 million to extensively provide its product for essential industries during the pandemic. The manufacturing plant is anticipated to deliver output at full potential and fabricate large-scale products and automation systems for several industries.
