Efficiency, Safety and Predictive Maintenance: Trends in the LV Drives Market

The variable speed drive market is back on track, with 7.7% growth predicted for 2021. Interact Analysis' latest market research offers insight into three important trends influencing the drives market: functional safety, predictive maintenance and efficiency regulations.

Low Voltage Drives Market Stages Steady Recovery With Projected 2020-25 CAGR Of 4.8%

The performance of the LV drives market is closely tied to overall global manufacturing output. In "normal" economic crises, manufacturing tends to endure a sharp contraction, followed by a strong rebound before plateauing. But the COVID-19 crisis has gone very differently. Slow vaccine uptake, labor shortages and supply chain disruptions are all coming together to cause a much slower recovery in the manufacturing sector, and therefore in the LV drives sector, than might have been expected.
