Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) Market Growing at a CAGR of 5.94% During 2016 to 2021

The variable frequency drive (VFD) market is projected to reach USD 24.8 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.94% from 2016 to 2021 while the AC drives segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021 driven by growing need for energy efficiency, reduction in operating costs of any energy intensive industry.


The variable frequency drive (VFD) is used in infrastructural activities which include commercial buildings such as hospitals, and educational institutions. Increasing urbanization and industrialization in developing countries such as India, growing need for energy efficiency, reduction in operating costs of any energy intensive industry, regulations on energy efficiency, growing trend of industrial automation, and regulations to ensure efficiency are expected to drive the variable frequency drive market.


Based on segment, AC drives are expected to constitute the fastest growing market from 2016 to 2021. AC drives are witnessing an increase in demand, as they are more efficient, requires less maintenance as compared to dc drives. Therefore, the AC drive segment has higher market share than the DC drive segment.


With regard to voltage, the low voltage segment is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR. The demand from industries such as utilities, petrochemicals, water & wastewater, metals & mining, and cement, would drive the low voltage drives market. The low voltage drives are generally employed in applications such as pumps, compressors, conveyors, crushers & mills, fans, and kiln applications.


The leading players in the variable frequency market include ABB Ltd (Switzerland), Siemens AG (Germany), Schneider Electric (France), Danfoss (Denmark), Rockwell Automation, Inc. (U.S.), and WEG (Brazil).
