World Top 10 Companies in Brushless DC Motor Market

The Brushless DC Motor Market to Reach Valuation of USD 23.52 Billion by 2028; Increasing Demand for Smart Cities to Drive the Market

World Top 10 Companies in Brushless DC Motor Market


Brushless DC motors have better performance and efficiency as compared to the brushed DC motors due to the involvement of electronic control enabling high-level control over the speed and position of the motor. Brushless DC motor lifespan is approximately 6 times higher than the counter brushed DC motor which gives them advantage over the brushed DC motors hence giving it key sales and quality advantage. In the brushless DC motor, the rotor, made of a permanent magnet, is driven by the magnetic force of the stator's winding circuit while the brush DC motor uses a brush and commutator for current switching. Brushless DC motor uses a sensor and an electronic circuit for current switching.

The increasing demand in processing industries to gain high torque to weight ratio, reliability, reduce noise and erosion are the key reasons to adopt brushless DC motors. Also, increase in industrialization and improving process related problems by using brushless DC motors is major driving factor for the brushless DC motor market.

The emerging economies of Asia Pacific such as India, China, Indonesia, and Thailand are expected to fuel the growth of the brushless DC motor market in coming years. In 2021, countries such as India and China in the Asia Pacific region shared the highest GAGR. The reason for the growth of brushless DC motor market is the growing processing industry, lower cost of labor and major investment made by key manufacturers.
