The global variable frequency drive market is segmented by voltage type into low voltage and medium voltage; by type into ac drives, dc drives and servo drives; by power range type into micro-power drives, low-power drives, medium-power drives and high-power drives; by application type into pumps, fans, compressors, conveyors and others; by end user type into oil & gas, industrial, power generation, infrastructure and others. It is expected that the market of variable frequency drive will grow rapidly during the forecasted period at a CAGR of 6.57%.
Variable frequency drive (VFD) is a type of power conversion device which controls the rotational speed of an alternating current electric motor. It controls the frequency and voltage supplied to the electric motor. The variable frequency drive also has the capacity to control ramp-down and ramp-up of the motor during start and stop of the motor. Variable frequency drive also known as adjustable speed drive, ac drive, adjustable frequency drive and variable speed drive.
In terms of regional platform, Asia Pacific holds the largest market of variable frequency drive in terms of revenue due to emerging economies in this region such as China and India are investing a huge amount of money in energy efficient devices. Increasing investments toward the establishment of manufacturing facilities with increasing demand for oil & gas and power generation industries in this region are expected to stimulate the market of variable frequency drive over the forecasted period.
Europe is expected to be the fastest growing market for variable frequency drive in terms of revenue over the forecasted period due the stern government standards towards the adoption of energy efficient devices. European Union introduce climate and energy package to fight against climate change which focuses on emissions cuts, energy efficiency and renewable energy. These factors are expected to spur the growth of variable frequency drive market in this region over the forecasted period.
