Market Insights

In the global electric motors market demand is rapidly shifting towards high and premium energy efficient electric motors with rising awareness about the benefits of energy efficient electric motors and mandatory regulations to use energy efficient electric motors. International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is actively working in collaboration with several national regulatory bodies to develop new efficiency classes to design, develop and deploy electric motors.

Following are types of standard international energy efficiency classes currently followed across the world.

  • IE1: Standard efficiency
  • IE2: High efficiency
  • IE3: Premium efficiency
  • IE4: Super premium efficiency

Countries across the world are introducing mandatory regulations to high efficiency (IE2) and premium efficiency (IE3) class motors in order to reduce electricity consumption and emission of greenhouse gases. This is expected to increase the demand for energy efficient electric motors across the world through the forecast period 2015 – 2022.

At present, Energy Policy Act (EPAct) and National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) are two electric motor energy efficiency standards are effective in North America. EPAct has similar efficiency requirements included in IE2 class and NEMA follows IE3 premium efficiency class.  At present, IE2 and IE3 efficiency standards are effective in European Union, China and Japan. This is increasing the demand for energy efficient electric motors in these markets.

Developed and developing countries across the world are focusing to reduce greenhouse gas effects and introducing stringent regulations for the same. U.S., Japan, UK, and Australia are by providing incentives to replace low efficient or outdated electric motors used in industrial facilities. Moreover, credits facilities are provided to households to purchase efficient HVAC and home appliances to reduce residential electricity consumption. All these above factors are expected to drive the demand for energy efficient electric motors.
