Global Variable Frequency Drive Market Overview
Variable frequency drive (VFD) is a type of power conversion device in which motor controller pushes an electric motor by varying 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.
Market Size and Forecast
The variable frequency drive market, in terms of value, is estimated around USD 20.10 Billion in 2017 and expected to grow rapidly during the forecasted period at a CAGR of 6.57%. Increasing government guidelines for reducing energy consumption to achieve a net zero energy goal are expected to drive the market of variable frequency drive over the forecasted period. Increasing use of connected devices in commercial, household and industrial sectors are also expected to spur the growth of variable frequency drive market globally over the forecasted period.
Asia Pacific holds the largest market share of variable frequency drive in terms of revenue as the developing economies in this region such as China and India are investing a heavy amount of money in energy efficient devices. China accounted the largest market share of variable frequency drive over the forecasted period. 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 strict government norms towards the adoption of energy efficient devices and demand for clean energy technology.
