There is an increasing need for more precise and accurate advanced medical devices led by the rising rates of chronic diseases and healthcare costs.because they are utilized in so many different medical equipment, including dental handpieces, surgical robots, implantable technology, and diagnostic tools, micromotors are essential to addressing this need. Moreover, micro motors' expanding demand in the medical industry has been facilitated by their capacity to be integrated into small, portable medical devices.
  • Increasing industrial automation trend - The growing trend of automation in various industrial processes is driving the micro motor market. Manufacturing industries are concentrating on streamlining processes, cutting waste, and raising productivity to maintain their competitiveness in the industry.Industries with low profitability, such as oil & gas, metal, and packing, now depend heavily on industrial control and factory automation. Precise assembly is also necessary in the car industry to prevent manufacturing errors that cause huge losses.
    Many micro motors are needed for various factory automation equipment and devices, including robotic welding, pick-and-place machines, customized conveyor belts, automated testing probes, and 5-axis CNC systems. Factory automation is mostly used in the manufacturing sector to guarantee accurate assembly and fast turnaround times.
  • Growing popularity of autonomous vehicles - The automobile industry's shift to electric vehicles and autonomous driving technologies will lead to a rise in the need for efficient and small micro motors for a variety of functions within these vehicles, including HVAC systems, power windows, and seat adjustment.More electronic features and systems are being used in the automobile sector. Examples of these include electric power steering, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and electric vehicles (EVs), all of which rely on micromotors for different purposes. Over 10 million EVs are currently on the road. In consideration to this, the micro motor market is estimated to witness growth.


  • High price of cutting-edge services and technologies in the manufacturing of micromotors - It can be expensive to create and maintain the specialized production techniques and cutting-edge technology needed to produce micromotors. The business also demands the usage of cutting-edge materials, which impact prices even further.Additionally, compared to other industrial products, the demand for micro motors is frequently lower, which makes it difficult to maintain low costs and realize economies of scale. This is particularly true for specialist micromotors designed for specialized uses, where a great deal of development and customization is required, driving up costs even further.
  • Micro motors' small size frequently causes overheating and other performance problems. For producers, minimizing these downsides is a major issue.
  • The entry of micro motors into low-end and price-sensitive markets is hampered by the availability of small, inexpensive motors.

Micro Motor Segmentation

Type (AC Motor, DC Motor)

The DC motor segment in the micro motor market is estimated to gain the largest revenue share of about 60% in the year 2036. The segment growth can be credited to the DC motors are less expensive than AC motors and have higher starting torque, and starting and reversing speeds, they are more durable. When compared to brushless motors, brushed motors are less expensive and simpler to install. These motors run between 1,000 and 10,000 revolutions per minute.

A brushed DC micro motor is used in many vehicle systems, including cooling fans, power windows, wipers, and more. Conversely, brushless systems are more prone to breakage and have a longer lifespan. The lifespan of a brushless motor is greater than 10,000 operating hours. Also, to requiring less maintenance, brushless motors produce more output per frame size.

Furthermore, electric hair dryers, electric toothbrushes, and electric razors are just a few examples of personal appliances and power tools that use DC motors because of their high-power density. A Mintel survey from 2022 states that 41% of adults used an electronic toothbrush and 58% used a manual toothbrush during the previous six months.

Application (Automotive, Medical Equipment System, Industrial Automation, Aircraft Systems, Construction & Mining, Agriculture Equipment System, 3D Printer System)

Based on application, the medical equipment system segment in the micro motor market is expected to hold the largest revenue share of about 30% from 2024 to 2036. With the invention of portable medical gadgets, which enable healthcare providers to deliver high-quality care outside of traditional hospital settings, the healthcare sector has experienced a radical change. Thanks to their ability to facilitate early disease identification and lower healthcare expenditures, these technologies have the potential to enhance patient outcomes and lower hospitalization rates.

Surgery has been transformed by micromotors, which provide surgeons with more precise control over surgical instruments and enable less invasive and more efficient procedures. Compact and user-friendly medical equipment and tools that may be carried and utilized in a variety of places, including residences, clinics, ambulances, and isolated areas, are known as portable medical devices. The usage of micromotors in portable medical devices for surgery, medicine delivery, and diagnosis is growing.
