Electric Vehicle Motor Market Trends


Rising demand for energy-efficient motors to boost the market growth


As per the US Department of Energy (DOE), in March 2020, electric vehicle motor were responsible for half of the energy utilization in the US manufacturing sector. Electric vehicle motor used in industrial and infrastructure applications are responsible for 53% of the world's total electricity consumption. Thus, various regulations have been implemented to ensure efficient and effective energy utilization. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), a European regulatory authority, has set energy efficiency norms. Various countries have started implementing such regulations to enhance the energy efficiency of electric vehicle motor. IEC has created a set of motor effectiveness regulations, known as IE1, IE2, IE3, and IE4, for decreasing carbon emissions.


Further, Development in the electric vehicle motor and an enhancement in government regulations and guidelines concerning vehicular emanations are the major reasons driving the electric vehicle motor industry. Nonetheless, the high starting cost of an electric engine and the high support costs related to an electric vehicle motor limit the development of the market.


Additionally, the electric vehicle powertrain control frameworks significantly affect the electric vehicle's range. The utilization of strict administrative restrictions is another major factor in industry expansion. Various governments have established stringent discharge standards to decrease GHG emissions and mitigate the causes of unnatural weather change. It thus expected automakers to develop zero-discharge automobiles to abide by more difficult emission regulations. These regulations have resulted in a more effective focus on producing the more capable electric car, which will boost market for electric vehicle motor during the forecast period.


However, Speedy urbanization, which adds a premium for financial transportation mediums like electric vehicles, is a key driver impacting the market expansion. When standing out from IC vehicles, electric vehicles are all the more monetarily clever and have a lower environmental impact. Thus, speedy urbanization drives the growth of the electric vehicle motor market revenue.
