Growth opportunities in the global AC drives market

The global AC drives market through market analysis is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of close to 8% until 2019. The global AC drives market is correlated with the growing electric motors market. The electric motor has wider applications such as motor vehicles, household appliances, and aerospace, industrial and other transportation equipment over the mechanical or hydraulic motors. Electric motors are the major consumer of global electricity, which account for around 44% of the global electricity consumption. 

The worldwide investment toward renewable energy is expected to gain immense traction over next four years. The installation of new wind farms and solar parks supplement the demand for wind turbines and solar drives. As these installations require AC drives for reducing energy losses and increasing speed regulations, the demand from the wind and solar energy segment is expected to bring additional revenues for the vendors during the forecast period.
