Electronically commutated motors are electric brushless motors with permanent magnets situated on the rotor. These electronically commutated motors are long lasting because of having less physical contact within the moving components. Their benefit over others is that these motors consume less electricity as compared to induction motors. So they are used in various application in the ventilation & refrigeration industry, electric vehicles, cordless tools also, they have use in industrial engineering, motion control systems, aeromodelling, positioning & actuation systems, radio control cars, and others. 

The reason behind their growth at decent pace at expected time is their growing popularity in various end-use industries of the global electronically commutated motors. Although ECMs have features to run with an AC power supply, it is important to note they are actually direct-current motors with permanent magnets on their rotor. Unlike conventional DC motors, which create a rotating magnetic field with a combination of brush contacts and slip rings, ECMs achieve the same effect with a voltage rectifier and an electronic control circuit. As a result, the friction and sparks associated with brush contacts are eliminated, and this is one of the reasons why ECMs are so efficient. They also have a longer durability than brushed motors, since the wear associated with sparks and friction is eliminated. Compared with other common types of fractional horsepower motors, ECMs are the top choice in terms of efficiency. ECMs are normally the most preferable option in fractional horsepower applications as they tend to have the highest savings when used in air-conditioning and refrigeration systems.  They dissipate less heat, which helps AC and refrigeration systems to operate more efficiently. This effect applies for all air-conditioning or refrigeration components that are found inside the conditioned space, such as air handlers and evaporators.

Covid-19  impact on industry -

COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in ECM   market industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of ECM market significantly from last few months, as is likely to continue during 2020.

COVID-19 has already affected the sales of equipment and machinery in the first quarter of 2020 and is likely to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.

The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery.

Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Equipment and machinery companies can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players would have to modify their investment plans.

Equipment and machinery manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis

Some factors that affects the growth of market is their high usage in HVAC i.e. heating ventilation and air conditioning and their usage in automobile sector drives the growth of market. 

High efficiency of the electronically commutated motors 

The adoption of electronically commutated motors is increased due to their high efficiency, performance, controllability, and reliability and others.

Many companies are now preferring   electronically commutated motors over existing one due to their characteristics such as high efficiency, controllability, and cost saving. Earlier, AC motors were widely used in the HVAC industry, but now electronically commutated motors are being preferred. The introduction of smart synchronous permanent magnet motors had created hindrance for this market of electronically commutated motors. Smart synchronous motors eliminate the power conversion process after the motor starts.  Satisfaction of users, energy efficiency, greener solutions, and regulatory compliance will increase the global electronically commutated motors market during the estimated time. 

Increase in usage of electronically commutated motors  

Electronically commutated motors provide control over airflow, serial communication, and allow programmability that has its use in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Electronically commutated motors are used in the automobile sector as well. Increasing concerns for the environment and adoption of electric vehicles will increase the demand of electronically commutated motors. Energy regulations laid down by governing authorities around the globe are estimated to boost the entry of new players in the global electronically commutated motors market.

There are several electronica commutated motor manufacturers are investing heavily in R&D for the enhancement in their motors, as they are used in various industries and consumer electronics. On the basis of industry, the heating & ventilation segment had their major share of the global electronically commutated motors market that is followed by the consumer electronics segment. The heating & ventilation segment is predicted to witness substantial growth during the upcoming time.
