Prolific growth opportunities exist in the Chinese market, owing to an ever mushrooming automotive industry. Future Market Insights estimates the economic giant to produce 4.5 million variable frequency drives by 2021-end, as production cycles revert to normalcy in the aftermath of the coronavirus crisis. Hence, manufacturers are introducing a slew of technological innovations to tap this ever expanding opportunity, thus generating powerful revenue ecosystems across the forecast period.
Variable frequency drives have been consistently improving system reliability and performance for the past 40 years. They will continue to impact industrial growth during the assessment period.
Manufacturers are likely to experience widening profit margins across the South Asia & Pacific region, with China emerging at the forefront in the wake of exploding construction and automotive sectors. Besides, Germany and the United States are also expected to yield immense opportunities. Based on these aforementioned trends, the VFD market is poised to grow at a value CAGR exceeding 5% through 2031.
The variable frequency drives market is a highly competitive market, with a sizeable presence of both global as well as domestic players. However, key players account for nearly half of the market share. It is characterized by large supplier base and strong B2B networks.
The market has robust partnerships throughout the value chain. Suppliers of variable frequency drives adopt acquisition and regional expansion strategies to establish a foothold. Brand consciousness and aggressive marketing makes it challenging for new entrants in the variable frequency drives market.
