North America Hazardous Location Motors Market Analysis

The North America Hazardous Location Motors Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The strict rules & regulations regarding hazardous areas and safety in the workplace, defined in the NEC articles in the USA, have rendered significant impetus to the growth of the hazardous location motors market in the North American region.

  • The use of explosion-proof motors, which are designed for use in hazardous environments where flammable gases, dust, or fibers are present, is essential for the safety of personnel and equipment. Electric motors generate heat under standard operating conditions and can generate a spark if a motor coil fails. Excessive motor case temperatures or an inadequately contained spark can cause an explosion or ignite a fire in environments where specific hazardous materials are present.
  • The grain and milling industries are among the most common facilities for dust explosions. Flour might seem harmless, but when it is distributed in the air in high concentrations, combined with an ignition source, confined space, dispersion, and oxygen, it causes an explosion. Flour mills have been an essential part of the American economy and the region's agricultural industry. The increasing production of flour in the North American region acts as a catalyst for the growth of the studied market.
  • For instance, wheat flour production by US flour mills in 2020 totaled 425.338 million cwts, up by 3.061 million cwts, or 0.7%, from 422.277 million cwts in 2019, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) of the US Department of Agriculture.
  • Further, cocoa powder is widely used in the region's confectioneries and bakeries. The grinding process of cocoa falls under strict regulations in the North American region, due to which the penetration of the explosion-proof motor is high. In reviewing the global incident data, food and wood products made up over 75% of the combustible dust fires and explosions recorded in the North American Region. According to the National Confectioners Association (NCA), in 2021, cocoa grindings featured an increase of 2.05%, from 1,15,591 tonnes in 2020 to 1,17,956 tonnes in 2021. The rising demand and production of cocoa are also aiding the market growth in the region.
  • However, designing and manufacturing motors that completely engulf an internal explosion without rupturing or passing out any hot gases from the enclosure so that they are forced to exit through a long, narrow opening known as flame paths are the two major challenges faced by hazardous location motors market. Further, the Covid-19 pandemic has also posed several challenges to the studied market, like disruption in the supply chain and increased raw materials prices.
