Key Market Trends

Automotive Segment to Hold Significant Share in Permanent Magnet Motor Market

  • In every automobile that is set to be launched in the near future, the number of electric motors is expected to be in double figures.
  • In the automotive industry, except for the starter, the rest of the power distribution in the car comes from micromotors. In the past, the micromotor was used as the power source of the windshield scrubber, wiper, electric pumps, and automatic antenna parts assembly.
  • The increasing demand for light commercial vehicles has made manufacturers emphasize more on passenger comfort and automatic controls. Thus, micro motors have become an indispensable part of the modern automobile infrastructure.
  • When these motors are made of a permanent magnet, they gain large power, small size, light weight, high efficiency. 
  • Most major advancements in technology have been aimed at decreasing the overall size of the product. Therefore, the increasing demand for efficiency, permanent magnet motors are expected to dominate the entire market in the automotive industry, during the forecast period.
