Motor Driver IC Market size is set to surpass USD 1.5 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The market growth is attributed to the rising government initiatives and investments to boost the infrastructure development across developed economies. The government aims to upgrade four million commercial buildings with new advanced electric appliances and improved heating & cooling systems as a part of this plan. This will make it easier to install grid-connected power tools that require an efficient motor driver to manage the power supply, fostering the market expansion during the forecast timeline.
High sustainability issues, such as overheating and complex design associated with motor driver IC, are among the major factors restraining the market progression. Overheating in IC occurs as a result of the continuous use of industrial machinery and robots to manage high-power operations in plant facilities. Adding to this, the companies are experiencing difficulties in designing miniaturized ICs with enhanced temperature management features, suppressing the industry growth. Furthermore, researchers are experimenting with the use of liquid-immersion cooling technology to maintain the reliability and functioning of electronic devices in order to mitigate these issues.
