Electric Motor Market to Hit $181.89 Billion by 2028; Dana Launches New Electric Motor to Amplify its Market Position

March 18, 2021 | Energy & Power

The global electric motor market size is expected to gain momentum by reaching USD 181.89 billion by 2028. Fortune Business Insights in its latest report, titled, “Electric Motor Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Motor Type (AC Motor, DC Motor, Hermetic Motor), By Power Output (Fractional Horsepower (Up to 1HP), Integral Horsepower (Above 1HP)), By Voltage (Up to 1kV, 1kV - 6.6kV, Above 6.6kV), By Application (Industrial Machinery, Motor Vehicles, HVAC Equipment, Electrical Appliances, Others), By End-User (Industrial, Commercial, Residential, Agriculture, Transportation) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028.” The report further observes that the market stood at USD 106.45 billion in 2020 and is likely to exhibit a CAGR of 7.0% between 2021 and 2028. This is attributable to the increasing demand for electric vehicles worldwide that is projected to boost the adoption of electric type motors in the forthcoming years. 

Dana Incorporated’s New Electric Motor Highly Efficient for Electric-Powered Applications

In July 2020, Dana Incorporated announced the launch of a low-voltage and efficient motor for electric applications and drive axles for industrial lift trucks consisting of Class I, IV, and V. According to the company, the new motor is 95% efficient and prolongs battery life while delivering higher power density than the traditional AC motors primarily used in such applications. Moreover, the new motor addresses the vital issues of manufacturers such as power, performance, NVH requirements, and torque. Such initiatives are expected to bode well for the growth of the market in the forthcoming years.
