The North America variable frequency drive (VFD) market has been on an impressive growth trajectory, with significant advancements and market dynamics driving its expansion. In 2021, the market was valued at US$ 4,500 million, and it has shown remarkable resilience and growth potential since then. Looking ahead to 2032, the North America VFD market is projected to reach a staggering valuation of US$ 5,056.2 million, indicating a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6%. This outlook reflects the industry’s resilience and its essential role in modernizing various sectors while contributing to energy conservation and sustainability efforts.

One of the key drivers behind this upward trend is the continuous stream of technological advancements in the VFD industry. As industries across North America increasingly recognize the benefits of VFDs in optimizing energy consumption and enhancing process control, manufacturers have responded with innovative solutions. These innovations are making VFDs more efficient, adaptable, and user-friendly, thereby boosting their adoption across various sectors.

Efficient Energy Management and Innovations in Motor Control:

Escalating energy costs have necessitated the adoption of energy-efficient motor control systems, offering a viable alternative to conventional throttling mechanisms like valves and fixed speed controllers. Len Busch Roses, exemplifying this trend, employs Danfoss’ variable frequency drive to meticulously regulate airflow in their snapdragon greenhouse, yielding a substantial 22% reduction in energy expenditures.

The integration of smart grid technology is gaining traction, potentially revolutionizing voltage and phase angle variations, consequently enhancing electricity transmission efficiency.

Furthermore, the application of a single variable frequency drive to govern multiple electric motors has emerged as an energy-saving strategy, diminishing energy wastage. The synchronous bypass technique utilizes a variable frequency drive for initiating and synchronizing multiple motors, seamlessly transferring the load from one source to another. According to Rockwell Automation, an asynchronous variable frequency drive system capable of overseeing two motors can result in a remarkable 33% reduction in initial capital expenditure.

Key Insights from the North America Variable Frequency Drive Market:

  • The North America Variable Frequency Drive market is prominently led by AC drives, constituting over 70% of the market share. This dominance stems from their extensive utility in heavy and medium industries such as power generation, oil and gas, food and beverages, paper and pulp, infrastructure, and automotive sectors.
  • Low voltage units, comprising more than 80% of the market share, are driven by escalating demand for low-power variable frequency drives across applications like fans, pumps, machine tools, cranes, fluid machines, printing machines, metal processing machines, and food processing equipment.

According to an analyst at Future Market Insights, the market’s growth is underpinned by the pursuit of enhanced productivity and reduced downtime.
