Restraining Factors

One of the factors limiting the market's growth is the existence of strict environmental rules or norms. Customers want for vehicles that offer higher gas mileage and those that produce less hazardous emissions. In order to make cars lighter and more efficient, there has been an increase in the need for lightweight materials. The pricing of different vehicles is particularly important because of the intense rivalry in the automotive motors industry. Cost optimization is a problem in the market, especially when it comes to luxury vehicles.


COVID 19 Impact

Lockdowns, travel restrictions, and business closures brought on by COVID-19 have had an impact on the economies and sectors of numerous nations. The closing of numerous facilities and factories has had a severe impact on the production, delivery schedules, and sales of goods in the international automotive motor market. Due to the international trade restrictions and lockdowns, COVID-19 had a detrimental impact on the GDP growth of both established and developing economies. The COVID-19 pandemic's effects on auto manufacturing have slowed the expansion of the worldwide automotive motor market since production facilities have been shut down and the supply chain has been disrupted in a number of global locations. Due to COVID limits, several motor manufacturers found it difficult to keep up with demand. The automotive motor market, however, is making a comeback and is anticipated to expand quickly throughout the anticipated time.



The global automotive motors market is segmented into Motor Type, Sales Channel, Application, Vehicle Type and Region.


Global Automotive Motors Market, By Motor Type

Based on motor type, the global automotive motors market is segmented into Brushed DC Motor, Brushless DC Motor, Stepper Motor, and Traction Motor. Due to its low cost and straightforward drive control model, brushed DC motors held the biggest market share. They are perfect for a variety of automotive applications because they are simple to install and used to give the vehicle exceptional speed and power. Brushed DC motors are used in systems such as power windows, cooling fans, windshield wipers, and more. In 2021, the second-largest market share belonged to brushless DC. Because there is no actual commutator or brush, the brushless DC motor is not as prone to damage or breakage and experiences less wear and tear. Brushless DC motors are more dependable, efficient, and have a longer lifespan. The BLDC motor offers notable advantages in terms of power density in a number of applications, resulting in higher fuel efficiency, lighter weight, and lower emissions. They are employed, among other things, in pumps, windshield wipers, and cabin HVAC blowers.


Global Automotive Motors Market, By Sales Channel

On the basis of sales channel, the global automotive motors market is segmented into OEMs and aftermarket. In 2021, a large market share was held by the OEM segment. However, the aftermarket emerged as the leading sector in 2021 and is anticipated to increase at the highest rate during the upcoming years. Due to their prolonged usage and for greater vehicle performance, which is driving the segment, the motors must be replaced after a specific amount of time.


Global Automotive Motors Market, By Application

On the basis of application, the global automotive motors market is segmented into safety, comfort, and performance. Automotive motors are used for a variety of purposes, such as comfort, performance, and safety. In 2021, the comfort application sector held the largest market share. Among other types of vehicles, automotive motors are utilised in cars, hybrid vehicles, and electric vehicles. The need for passenger and driver comfort has increased along with the need for passenger vehicles for transportation. These motors are used in high-tech automobile accessories like electronically adjustable seats. The impact on both the driver and the passenger is reduced because to the motor's integration with a microcontroller platform that employs a cutting-edge algorithm. Similar to this, in electric power steering systems, the motor is integrated with a platform controlled by a microcontroller.


Global Automotive Motors Market, By Vehicle Type

Based on vehicle type, the global automotive motors market is segmented into electric vehicle and non-electric vehicle. Over the projected period, the electric vehicle market is anticipated to increase at the fastest rate. Electric vehicles have a huge impact on energy security, carbon emissions reduction, and local air quality. Due to growing worries about carbon emissions from traditional fuel-driven cars and other kinds of transportation, the industry has moved its focus toward hybrid and electric vehicles. In consequence, it is projected that this will fuel category expansion in the years to come.
