Rising demand for AC Drives from Numerous Industries Propel the Market

The AC drives market outlook appears promising mainly due to the vast demand for energy-efficient pumps, compressors, fans, conveyors, and extruders. Besides, the upsurge in environmental awareness impacts the market growth positively, leading to the higher implementation of these AC drives to provide energy efficiency. Additionally, rising uses of AC drives in food beverage and building automation industries contribute to the growth of the market.

Price Volatility and Demand-Supply Gap in Key Components is a Major Headwind

Despite significant growth propellers, the market witnesses major setbacks such as volatility in prices and the demand-supply gap in raw materials and components, increasing the overall cost of AC drives. Besides, the high research and development costs are projected to restrict the AC drives market growth. Also, the lack of awareness of the benefits of AC drives could restrain the ongoing market growth, negatively impacting the market sales.

Nevertheless, huge advances and continuous developments in equipment used in metals mining, chemicals petrochemicals, water wastewater, and residential applications are anticipated to contribute to the AC drives industry over the review period. Also, high expansion activities by multinationals and well-established companies, alongside the new product launches, are expected to boost the AC drives market shares.

COVID 19 Impacts on the Market

Just like many industries, the AC drives industry was too impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic drastically.
