The global power magnetics for MV AC drive market size was USD 1.07 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow USD 1.98 billion in 2032, at a CAGR of 5.69% during the 2020-2032 forecast period.  

The global impact of the COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with power magnetics for medium voltage AC drives witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market will exhibit a decline of -4.38% in 2020. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Power magnetics consists of various components such as transformers, inductors, current sensors, chokes, reactors, and other magnetic products. These power magnetics products are widely used in the designing and manufacturing medium voltage AC drives. These drives are easy-to-use and are well-suited for variable torque applications such as simple, standalone centrifugal fans and pumps.

Medium voltage AC drives are intended to optimize energy by enabling variable-speed control and soft starting in normal duty and heavy-duty applications. It is generally used in applications that require motors from 500 to 20,000 hp, where the difference in the current draw between low voltage and medium voltage becomes substantial. Motors in this range are often used to operate large compressors pumps and fans in power stations, chemical & petrochemical plants, water & wastewater treatment facilities, cement, mining and minerals, marine, and oil and gas industries.

Unavailability of Financial Assistance for Industries During COVID-19 to Impact Growth

The global health emergency caused by the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected numerous verticals. The pandemic has put a halt on global productions and trades. Nearly, all the countries worldwide have witnessed a huge rise in the number of affected cases since the starting of 2020. Furthermore, the implications of the pandemic crisis have influenced different industries in various ways such as shortage of operating staff, capital investment deficits, the shutdown of industrial operations, and limited international transactions to market the products, among others. Besides, the unavailability of any cure or vaccine for the infection has led many industry players to introduce combat measures to mitigate its impact on businesses continuously. The aftermath of this global pandemic has been observed considerably across developing and developed countries with the development of ample medical infrastructures. The market has been intermediately affected by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Power magnetics product line includes custom dry type transformer, inductor, filter, chokes, and sensors. These products are widely deployed at different locations to safeguard the equipment operation and provide insights regarding the strength potential of tools. The limitations in the investments caused by the halted operations of different industrial procedures such as exploration and production of hydrocarbons, setup & expansion of manufacturing facilities, and dwindling sea-borne trades are likely to affect the market growth for power magnetics for MV AC drives.

Increasing Rate of Industrialization & Urbanization to Propel Market Growth

The increasing pace of urbanization and industrialization are the major factors responsible for the growth of the global market for power magnetics for MV AC drive.  According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), in 2019, the urban population increased to 55.7% from 51.1% in 2011. For the past few years, rapid urbanization in developing economies, especially in Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Pacific, saw the urbanization rate increase from 42.3% in 2009 to 49.1% in 2019. The growing urbanization and industrialization surged energy consumption at a rapid pace. This is likely to drive the market during the forecast period.


Increasing Clean Energy Demand to Propel Product Demand

The rising population, coupled with rapid urbanization, has led to increased power demand, leading to the rising installation of renewable energy sources and construction of new power plants. These factors have propelled the demand for power magnetics for MV AC drives. Renewable energy sources require numerous equipment, which plays a significant role in its efficient functioning. For instance, the solar water pump consists of the PV panels, the pump, a motor, and an MV AC drive to ensure that it runs on the correct voltage and at the desired speed. Therefore, the increasing demand for clean energy in recent years has undoubtedly propelled the integration of rex power magnetics for MV AC drives in the field of clean energy generation.

New targets launched by various governments to promote sustainable power have further positively affected the market size. For instance, in 2019, Germany announced its goal to produce 20 GW of energy by using offshore wind power by the end of 2030. This has led to increasing investment opportunity in the market. Given the increasing energy demand, along to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the installation of renewable energy products is set to grow tremendously in the forthcoming years, which, in turn, will lead to the power magnetics for MV AC drive market growth in the forthcoming years.

Favorable Government Regulations & Policies to Drive Market Growth

The market is mainly driven by the increasing demand from power plants as the power magnetics for MV AC drive systems help reduce carbon emissions. According to the Global Energy Review 2019 (IEA), the energy demand increased by 0.9% in 2019. Power generation plants are developed using magnetics products to achieve a high operational rate, quick start-up, and flexible load efficiency as per the power demand. Furthermore, several governments worldwide are funding clean energy installations that are likely to boost the adoption of power magnetics for MV AC drives.


Volatility in Crude Oil Prices Coupled with Decreasing Investment in Coal-fired Power Plants to Hamper Growth

The volatility in oil and gas prices is the key factor that can hinder the adoption of the power magnetics for medium voltage AC drives. As the production and price are solely dependent on demand across the globe, a constant demand leads to a stable market, whereas, any shortfall directly affects production. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), in March 2020, the Chicago Board Option Exchange (CBOE) Crude Oil Volatility Index (OVX) reached USD 190, which is the highest since its inception in 2007. This is said to be the effect of decreased oil demand due to global health problems. Furthermore, to control the global temperature rise, steps are being taken by various governments across the globe to curb harmful emissions. This has resulted in the decommissioning of various power plants that can obstruct the growth of the market.

In 2018, the U.K. government announced its plan to stop all coal-fired power plants across the country by 2025, to comply with the new pollution standards. Furthermore, the administration ceased operation of 3 power plants in 2016 and is expected to halt operations in most such facilities by 2022, with additional plans to force shut the remaining by the end of October 2025. These factors are likely to hamper the market during the forecast period.
