Permanent magnet motors have seen a significant rise in adoption over the years due to their higher efficiency and throughput, and this trend is expected to continue over the coming years, owing to product differentiation and innovations supported by market incumbents. Electric vehicles (EV) are expected to boost the growth of the permanent magnet motors market over the forecast period, as the number of new EV cars registered globally hit an unprecedented market share in 2017, with developed markets supporting this trend. Leading automotive companies have been identified to increasingly adopt permanent magnet motors into EVs, which is expected to increase the demand globally, thereby, driving the market’s growth.
Increased Motor Efficiency due to Permanent Magnets drives the Adoption of Motors.
Lower operating temperatures of PMM also reduce wear & tear and minimize maintenance requirements, making it a suitable replacement for conventional motors. PMM motors have been integrated into different industries, owing to their extended bearing and insulation life, and robust construction, for years of trouble-free operation in harsh environments. Though induction motors are available at a low initial cost, higher operating costs have made many companies prefer PMM, to optimize energy usage and obtain a full return on investment more quickly. It has been identified that the system efficiency of a PMAC motor/drive setup ranges from 40% to beyond 120% load. In addition, a PMAC motor also exhibits higher power density than an equivalent induction motor, owing to the production of more flux by rare earth metals.
Automotive Sector Expected to Drive the Use of Permanent Magnet Motors
In every automobile set to be launched in the near future, the number of electric motors is expected to be well in order of double figures. Few cars have more than 20 micro motors, micro motors are used as the power source for circular, horizontal swing, or straight line movement, which includes changes in the location of mobile electric seat cushion, headrest, backrest, swing of rearview mirrors, windows open & close, and water tank cooling fan rotation, among other utility functions. PMM's are about to find a more extensive range of applications, such as, in-car ABS, electronically controlled suspension system, and steering & oil pumps.
Applications of micro DC motors are expected to increase proportionally with the growing electronic equipment integration into the automobile during the forecast period. Electric vehicles are one of the most promising technologies that can lead to further substantial improvements in vehicle performance, efficiency, and emission reductions. The core technology of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are electric drivers. EVs and HEVs need to meet some prerequisites to be competitive in the automotive sector, including efficiency, interior comfort, low cost, reliability, and low maintenance. These requisites have led to the development of smaller and higher output motors.
North America to hold the Highest Market Share for Permanent Magnet Motor Sales
United States established a new renewable energy milestone in 2017. For the first time, wind and solar energy accounted for a significant portion of all electricity generation, with wind comprising of 8%, and solar coming in at 2%. However, hydroelectric power still held the dominant share in the region. Texas generated the most wind and solar energy than any other state, nearly all of which came from wind power. Iowa had the largest share of renewables, in total energy production. In the wind energy sector, the United States is the second largest market for total installed capacity, after China. In 2016, US wind installations totaled over 82 GW. Wind surpassed traditional hydropower generation to become the largest source of renewable electric power. In Canada, around 700 MW of new wind capacity was installed, and with a total 12 GW installed capacity, makes it the eighth-largest market globally. The wind energy sector is strong and is set to grow in the region, which is set to boost the growth of permanent magnet market, during the forecast period. All such factors in the country emphasize the growth of the permanent magnet motors in the region.
