In-wheel Motors Market Synopsis:


The global In-wheel motors market is estimated to witness a 6% CAGR during the forecast period.


Functions such as stability and traction control in conventional vehicles are implemented by slowing down the wheel that is spinning faster than it should be. However, due to its limitations and slow response, the need of an in-wheel motor to unlock a skidding tire with the help of driving force occurs. In-wheel motors help in delivering controlled motoring or braking torque in a millisecond thus improving traction and stability control.


In-wheel motors are engaged in providing different torques to different wheels resulting in markedly improved handling and stability during high speeds. In-wheel motors help in increasing the overall efficiency of the vehicle by approx. 20% and reducing the overall propulsion system price which is expected to drive the global in-wheel motors market. Furthermore, in-wheel motors are efficient.


Based on the driver’s command and vehicle’s condition, the need of taking decisions about torque delivered by each motor at each instant is critical. However, road shocks, additional mass of the vehicle, and higher cost are the major factors hampering the growth and penetration of in-wheel motors vehicles. Another challenge witnessed in the in-wheel motors installation is the designing of motor-control software which may hinder the growth. Moreover, under normal conditions, running on a single motor is straightforward rather than on two, but a dangerous asymmetry may develop during a fault in one motor which could cause the vehicle to be pulled in an uncontrollable way.
