Even though many major oil companies have slashed their capital expenditure, the national oil companies in the region show no sign of cutting down the investments as the growing priority for safety makes the market, a huge potential for hazardous location motors globally.

The Middle East and Africa hazardous location motors market is estimated to be worth USD 0.159 billion in 2016 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.85% during the forecast period to reach USD 0.192 billion by 2021. Hazardous location motors are devices/equipment used in hazardous areas, where concentrations of flammable gases vapors and dust are high. Understandably, such an environment possesses serious threats and even small sparks as high surface temperatures can ignite hazardous substances and cause an explosion. The explosion-proof motors approved for Class I locations consist of all the features used in the most critical areas where cleanliness, wash-down tolerance, and safety due to hazardous liquids, vapors or dust exist. It not only solves the motion control needs of the application but also can be operated safely and does not become an ignition source for a hazardous event.

There are different types of motors used in different hazardous locations with different classes and zones. The different zones are zone 0, zone 20, zone 1, zone 21, zone 2 and zone 22, whereas, the classes are divided into class I, class II and class III. The different classes identify the physical characteristics of the hazardous materials present, where the motor will operate. However, due to technological innovation and growing safety measures, all the hazardous location motors should carry T-code designation. The T-codes signify the maximum absolute motor surface temperature that will develop under all conditions of operation, including motor overload and even burnout. This needs to be approved for different classes, zones and divisions, according to their different operation areas.

The motors are designed/constructed in such a way that they are equipped with sufficient provisions to battle adverse conditions like explosions so that they can prevent the release of explosive gases or vapors into the surrounding environment. Such motors are used in hazardous locations and are commonly used in applications like the spray painting and finishing areas, petroleum refining plants, dry cleaning facilities, utility gas plants, grain elevators and grain handling facilities, aluminum manufacturing and storage areas, firework plants and storage areas and others.

The Middle East and Africa hazardous location motors market is segmented on basis of their types, classes, divisions, hazardous zones, applications and geographies. On the basis of types, the market has been segmented into explosion-proof general purpose motors, drill rig duty motors, explosion proof pump motors, explosion proof inverter duty motors, explosion-proof severe duty motors and others.

Some of the market players mentioned in the report are Emerson Industrial Automation, Brook Crompton, ABB Group, Bluffton Motors Works, Rockwell Automation and WEG Industries.


Technological innovations, growing safety measures and increasing demand for energy efficient motors are some of the major drivers stimulating the growth of this segment.


Designing and manufacturing motors that completely experience an internal explosion, without rupturing and constructing it in such a way that any hot gases escaping the enclosure are forced to exit through long, narrow opening known as flame paths are two major challenges faced by the Middle East and Africa hazardous location motors market.
