Brushless DC electric motors are the synchronous motor in which rotation of the shaft is in synchronization with the supply current frequency that is powered by a direct current (DC) electric source through an integrated switching power supply, which generates an alternating current (AC) electric signal to drive the motor. It is further integrated with sensors and electronics to control the inverter amplitude, waveform, and frequency. The motors offer multiple advantages including reduced noise, longer lifetime, increased reliability, and lower electromagnetic interference, which in turn is augmenting the industry growth.
The global Brushless DC Motor market is anticipated to increase at a 9.5 % CAGR to reach value USD 37.6 Billion in 2030
High operating speed, peak point efficiency, quick response, higher efficiency, and less rotor heat are some of the prime factors which have positively impacted the adoption of brushless DC motor. Its versatile application ranging from motion control systems to positioning and actuation systems has made its adoption preferable in comparison to other available alternatives. In addition, the surging demand for sensor-less controls from brushless DC motor is gaining popularity as it enhances product durability and reliability which reduces the mechanical misalignments and number of electrical connections. Moreover, the rising adoption of the electric vehicle has further contributed to reinforce the demand for the product which will drive the industry in the coming years.
