The Future of Electric Motors: Demand in The Billions, Regulatory Mandates, and Design Optimization
This session offers a deep dive into the future of electric motor market movements, technology, and design innovation. There are a number of exciting, yet complex, movements shaping up around this space. To start, the world will require an abundance of electric motors in just about every sector imaginable of a very different variety than conventional offerings.
Macro trends—such as mass electrification and automation—are pushing global demand for specialized electric motors to over a billion units annually in a sector valued at over $200 billion.
Analysts project this booming electric motor need will occur in a long list of verticals: HVAC equipment, e-mobility, consumer electronics, household appliances, robotics, medical devices, aerospace, defense, and unmanned vehicles.
Another force influencing the future of electric motors is the push for more sustainable design and performance. With an eye on energy savings, large economic blocks (such as the US and EU) continue to advance design legislation to mandate electric motor efficiency. That is largely motivated by the fact that outdated electric motor systems account
for over 40 percent of the world’s electricity consumption, while contributing significantly to carbon emissions.
This all comes together to present a critical question. How to satisfy the needs of a world projected to demand billions of electric motors annually—with very specific design and sustainability requirements—across hundreds of verticals?
