Power Factor Corrector Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Driver

  • Escalating Energy Cost and Penalties for Low Power Factor - Many countries have implemented regulations or policies that penalize businesses that operate with low power factors, which can lead to higher energy costs. This has prompted businesses to invest in power factor correction systems to reduce energy bills and avoid fines. Such as, in the United States, utilities can impose penalties on industrial and commercial customers with low power factors.
  • Increasing Demand for Energy Efficient Solutions - With growing concerns about climate change and energy security, there is an increasing focus on energy efficiency across all sectors. Power factor correction systems can improve energy efficiency by reducing the amount of reactive power generated, which can result in significant energy savings. Therefore, many companies are investing in power factor correction systems as part of their energy-saving initiatives. Furthermore, the application of energy efficiency norms and standards to develop public electricity and lighting systems is also expected to increase the demand for power factor correction devices in the near future times.
  • Stringent Government Regulations being Implemented- Stricter rules and energy efficiency requirements are being imposed by governments and utility companies to promote the use of power factor correction technologies. Furthermore, producers and customers alike are growing more aware of sustainability and carbon footprints. Additionally, by enhancing power quality, these devices encourage the use of extra incentives. The expansion and development of the power factor corrector (PFC) market are being accelerated by all of these variables.


  • High Initial Investment Cost - Installing a power factor correction system can be expensive, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. Equipment, installation, and maintenance costs may deter some companies from investing in power factor correction systems, especially if they do not incur low power factor penalties.
  • Lack of Awareness is Expected to Pose Limitations on the Power Factor Corrector Market Growth in the Projected Period
  • Shortage of Skilled Labor is Predicted to Hamper the Market Expansion in the Upcoming Period. 

Power Factor Corrector Segmentation

Type (Active, Passive, Dynamic PFC)

Based on type, the passive segment is estimated to hold 40% share of the global power factor corrector market during the forecast period. Passive systems are widely used due to their cost-effectiveness and simple design, making them easy to install and maintain. They are especially suitable for low-power consumption applications, such as residential and small commercial buildings. This is why growing residential and small commercial building construction raises the segment growth in the forecast period. The forecast for new US residential construction occurring in 2023 is USD 817 billion.

Application (Residential, Industrial, Commercial)

The fastest-growing segment in the application segmentation of the power factor corrector market is anticipated to be the commercial sector. Commercial facilities, including offices, retail spaces, hospitals, and educational institutions, are increasingly aware of the importance of power factor correction in their operations. With the increasing use of electrical appliances, lighting systems, and electronics, commercial buildings often have poor power factors and face higher electricity costs.  The commercial sector is witnessing a wave of modernization and automation. This consists of deploying sophisticated lighting systems, HVAC equipment, and electronic devices. While these advancements offer operational benefits, they often have low power utilization, protect equipment from harmonic distortion, and extend lifespans.
