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 markets, 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.
