Global Soft Starter Market Overview

Soft starter uses no forms of controls other than electromechanical switching and approximately 90% of motors employed in industrial applications are soft starter. Normal motors increases machine wear as rapid acceleration and cause damage the pump, with transient in torque and high peak currents. Soft starters manages the problem raised at the time of acceleration and deceleration of current applications through controlling application of current in mechanical process. Major energy savings can be realized by using variable speed drives in applications where motor speed can be varied. Soft starters are still the most economical solution in fixed speed applications for the various end-user industries. The purpose of using soft starter guide is to outline the principle benefits of using soft starters compared to other electro-mechanical start methods, and to discuss the merits and demerits of the various soft start methods. This guide also covers some of the advanced functionality which could be found in today’s modern soft starters with considerations in choosing and sizing soft starters.

Market Size & Forecast

Global Soft Starter market is expected to account for a market value of around USD 3 billion in 2027 from USD 900 million in 2018 at a CAGR of 6% till forecast period 2018-2027.

Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest share in soft starter market backed by increased utilization of various soft starter applications. Additionally, low voltage quality of motor in any situation for industrial usage is also expected to drive the growth of market in significant rate. Europe is also accounted for tremendous growth rate in soft starter market on the heels of rising demand for low transient torque by commercialist and industrialist.

Countries such as Saudi Arabia, UAE and South Africa in Middle East and Africa region is also expected to escalate the modest growth in global Soft Starter market backed by increased use of pumps and fans. Additionally, rising growth of end user industry for soft starter that is oil& gas sector is also expected to propel the growth in the market. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
