In-Wheel Motor Market Statistics 2030 -

The global in-wheel motors market was valued at $577.20 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $12,041.50 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 35.8% from 2021 to 2030.

In-wheel motors are type of electric motors, which are installed in wheels of electric vehicles and are required to offer a better performance by directly powering wheels of the vehicle. Conventional electric vehicles involved only one motor responsible for propelling all wheels of an EV whereas with introduction of in-wheel motor system, independent motors were installed to wheels of vehicles and were responsible for individual operations. In-wheel motor installed around wheels of vehicles directly powers the wheel thereby offering a good accelerator response. Moreover, introduction of in-wheel motors in electric vehicles makes driving more aligned as well as increases fun and intuitiveness of driving experience.

Stringent safety regulations set by governments for automotive industry

The automotive market is positively affected by safety regulations implemented by government for installation of power window, airbags, and anti-lock braking systems (ABS) in every vehicle. Europe and North America have been witnessed to follow these regulations more stringently as compared to Asia-Pacific and rest of the world. However, in developing countries, OEMs are providing key less entry and anti-lock braking system (ABS) as standard features in vehicles, supporting the government to improve safety measures, thereby boosting sales of motors for vehicles. These safety systems need separate motors to function smoothly and to communicate with other components of vehicle to provide complete safety to passengers. Therefore, as incorporation of safety features has been made obligatory, demand for vehicular motors is anticipated to grow, which fuels growth of the market.

Decrease in global vehicle production

After 8 successful years of increasing sales till 2017, the global automotive production has witnessed decrease in vehicle sales (passenger vehicles as well as commercial vehicles). As compared to 2017, the overall vehicle sales in 2018 decreased by 1%, which was the highest ever in the history. Moreover, vehicle sales statistics in 2019 is not positive and vehicle sale is on a continuous decline rate, especially in developing countries, such as India and China, which hampers growth of the in-wheel motors market. Further, Asia-Pacific, which accounts for more than half of the global production, witnessed decrease in vehicle production for about 2% in 2018, which resulted in the reduced sales of motors to be used in vehicles.

Increase in penetration of electric vehicles

In recent years, demand and production of electric vehicles has increased significantly as electric vehicles have several advantages over fuel-powered automobiles. Components such as fan belts, oil, air filters, head caskets, timing belts, cylinder heads, and spark plugs do not require replacement, which makes it cheaper and efficient for fuel-powered automobiles. This makes electric vehicle a preferred choice; thereby, restraining growth of the fuel-powered automobile market. In addition, automobile manufacturers are focusing toward development of electric vehicles with in-wheel motor, owing to improved vehicle dynamics and traction control. Thus, growth in production of electric vehicles is anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunity for players operating in the in-wheel motor market.
