The rising global demand for energy has led to an increase in drilling and in the completion of activities along with the discovery of new oil and gas fields, technological innovation, rising investment and intervention of government, which are helping the market to grow, with an increasing number of hazardous locations (potentially explosive atmosphere). This has boosted the demand for hazardous location motors and motor starters market in the Middle East and African region. However, economic uncertainties remain and huge dependence on oil for economic growth can have a significant impact on the market coupled with the ongoing conflicts in the region can lead to an impact on investments in the region.

The Middle East and Africa hazardous location motor starters market is estimated to be worth USD 35 million in 2016 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.85% during the forecast period to reach USD 42 million by 2021. The hazardous location motor starters are explosion-proof devices, placed in a rigid metallic conduit system for the surface mounting adjacent to, or remote from the equipment being controlled and used in hazardous locations, where concentrations of flammable gas vapors and dust are high. They are used for across-the-line motor starting, motor disconnecting, motor and line protection and start-stop operations, specially designed within the specified KW power output range and are available with or without an isolator to be used in different hazardous zones.

The Middle East and Africa hazardous location motor starters market is broadly segmented based on their types, classes, divisions, hazardous zones, applications and geographies. They are classified as zone 0, zone 20, zone 1, zone 21, zone 2 and zone 22, whereas based on the physical characteristics of the hazardous material, the motor starters market can be segregated into class I, class II and class III. Based on their types, the market is segmented into low voltage motor starter, full voltage motor starter, manual motor starter, magnetic motor starter and others. Whereas, as per application, the market is segmented into paint storage areas, coal preparation plants, sewage treatment plants, oil refineries, grain elevators and others.
