This industry research report identifies ABB, Beckhoff, Rockwell Automation, Siemens, and SIGMATEK as the key vendors in the global safety drives market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by product type (utility, manufacturing, healthcare, oil and gas industries, food and beverage, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global safety drives market

Technavio’s market study identifies the increasing need for energy-efficient products to be one of the primary growth factors for the safety drives market. Several process and discrete industries are taking measures to conserve energy by using energy-efficient equipment such as safety drives in their plant premises. Safety drives optimizes the energy consumption and reduces energy wastage, while providing superior operation control. Stringent regulations laid down by authorities for energy conservation and energy shortage faced by several countries influence the demand and utilization of safety drives since they offer high potential high energy savings. According to our market reseach analysts, this market will grow steadily at a CAGR of almost 7% by 2021.

The emergence of hybrid safety drives wil be one of the major trends thar will gain traction in this global market in the coming years. Safety drives are usually used for low voltage industrial applications. However, with modifications in the components, the drives can function efficiently in high and medium voltage applications. Insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) vendors are constantly focusing on developing the technology and applications of IGBT that is primarily used in low voltage and medium voltage applications. The improved IGBT technology will enable high-power applications and also help in smooth controlling, soft start and stop functions, and reverse recovery. This in turn, will help in reducing losses by almost 30%.
