Market Overview

The global Brushless DC Motors market size was valued at USD 16.87 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach a value of USD 31.02 billion by 2032, registering a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period 2024-2032. The market is anticipated to grow due to Brushless DC (BLDC) motors' capacity to reduce energy consumption and boost the operational effectiveness of the equipment they are used in. In most applications, including window lifters, air conditioners, and sunroof actuators, these motors provide the highest levels of efficiency and dependability at the same time. These motors operate at low temperatures, are thermally resistant, and don't need much maintenance, so there is no risk of sparks.

A brushless DC motor (BLDC motor or BL motor) is a synchronous motor that runs on a direct current (DC). It employs an electronic controller to provide DC currents to the motor windings, creating magnetic fields that follow the permanent magnet rotor. The controller changes the phase and amplitude of DC pulses for speed and torque control. This control method replaces most electric motors' mechanical commutators (brushes).

Every human activity and process involves motors in some capacity. Numerous pieces of machinery, gadgets, and systems use motors. The number of motors is growing alongside machinery, systems, and devices. This has dramatically increased the demand for brushless DC motors.

Market Dynamics

Global Brushless DC Motors Market Restraints

High Cost of the BLDC Motors

Brushless motor producers face high-cost restrictions owing to the motor and electronics. Since BLDC motors are difficult to build, they are often 30% more costly. A switching controller is needed for BLDC motors to charge the stator coil properly. It features coils within the stator instead of an armature. Most tiny in-runner windings must be fitted by hand. This makes it more costly than machine wound brushed motors.
