Motor Driver IC Market Size

Motor Driver IC Market size valued at USD 1 billion in 2020 and is estimated to grow at over 5.5% CAGR between 2021 and 2027. The unit shipments are projected to reach 500 million units by 2027.

Motor Driver IC Market Overview

The motor driver IC market growth is attributed to its rising adoption in automated home appliances such as washing machines, air conditioners, and air humidifiers, among others. The proliferation of advanced technologies, such as AI and IoT in automated home appliances, is supporting the market demand for motor driver IC. Several market players are engaged in developing new motor drivers to reduce noise in home appliances.

The motor driver IC (integrated circuit) is an electrical component that harnesses and controls the electrical power sent into the motor. This IC helps to provide sufficient electrical power to the motors as per the requirement. It has a wide range of applications in industrial, automotive, medical, and consumer electronics sectors for power management and controlling of rotary motors.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the motor driver IC market, resulting in the closure of several manufacturing facilities, supply chain disruptions, and international trade barriers. Owing to the increasing scarcity of semiconductors in early 2020, several automakers have reduced their production capacity, limiting market opportunities for motor driver IC.

However, by the middle of 2021, manufacturers were encouraged to restructure their production facilities and increase their investments in motor drive control technology in order to gain a significant competitive advantage in the market.

Motor Driver IC Market Analysis

The brushed motor driver IC held a market share of around 40% in 2020 and is anticipated to witness 5% growth rate through 2027. The growth is impelled by the several advantages offered by the IC such as low-cost construction, smaller footprint, higher efficiency, and suitability for extreme environments.

Brushed motor IC is widely used in heavy-duty machinery such as dump trucks, bulldozers, excavators, telehandlers, motor graders, and compactors. These IC are also integrated into power tools such as drilling machines, grinders, sanders, vacuums, fans, and other motor-driven systems. The proliferation of heavy-duty machinery in North American economies including the U.S. and Canada is expected to fuel the usage of these motor driver IC during the forecast period. Several key market players are emphasizing on developing innovative and improved products with enhanced control capacity to increase their market footprint.

Motor Driver IC Market Share

The 24 V – 48 V segment in the motor driver IC market accounted for 40% of revenue share in 2020 and is slated to attain a CAGR of 5.5% by 2027.
