The global brushless DC motor market size is expected to reach USD 27.2 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period, according to a study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. These motors are thermally resistant, require low maintenance, and operate at low temperatures, eliminating any threat of sparks.

Low maintenance costs, retrofitting of existing air, high-efficiency at lower costs, and the rising adoption of electric vehicles are some of the key factors driving their growth over the forecast period. The emergence of sensor-less controls for brushless DC type is likely to boost the durability and reliability of the product, thereby reducing the number of mechanical misalignments, electrical connections, as well as the weight and size of the end product. These factors are further estimated to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, production of vehicles, globally, in order to cope up with the rising demand for vehicles internationally is anticipated to further impact market growth. Brushless DC motors are extensively used in motorized vehicle applications such as in sunroof systems, motorized seats, and adjustable mirrors. Additionally, these powertrains are extensively being preferred for performance applications in vehicles such as chassis fittings, power-train systems, and safety fittings owing to simple structure, less maintenance requirements, and extended operational life. Increasing product adoption by the automobile industry in numerous vehicles for multiple applications is anticipated to drive the growth of the market tremendously over the forecast period.

Electric vehicles extensively use brushless DC motors in mechatronic systems primarily in batteries for accumulators and power electronic converters. This is owing to advantages such as high operating speed, compact size, and quick response time. Production of electric vehicles is on rise globally supported by government initiatives to encourage use of non-conventional fuels and effectively reduce the adverse impacts of carbon emissions. The increasing electric vehicle production is anticipated to directly impact the demand for brushless motors over the forecast period.
