The low voltage segment is expected to hold the largest share of the variable frequency drive market, by voltage type, during the forecast period
The low voltage segment segment, by voltage, is estimated to account for the largest share during the forecast period. Low voltage variable frequency drives are used in a wide range of applications such as pumps, fan, belt conveyor, centrifugal pumps, and centrifugal compressors. Low voltage variable frequency drives are designed for industrial applications, especially in process industries such as pulp & paper, power, water & wastewater, and oil & gas. Thus, the growing use of low voltage drives in a wide range of applications is expected to boost the growth for this segment
The low power drive segment, by power rating, is expected account for the largest share during the forecast period
The low power drive segment is expected to hold the largest market share and grow at a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period. Low power drives offer a quick payback period due to higher energy savings at low capital costs and better process control with increased motor control. Variable frequency drives with a 6–40 kW power range are used in different industries such as building, automation, oil & gas, food & beverage, and pulp & paper. Thus, the growing need for energy efficiency in these industries is expected to drive the growth of the segment.

Asia Pacific: The leading variable frequency drive market
The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the largest variable frequency drive market by 2025. Countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea are among the major countries considered as the main manufacturing hubs for variable frequency drives. Countries in Asia Pacific are focused towards energy efficiency and variable frequency drives are expected to play an important role in helping these countries to meet their energy efficiency targets, as the primary function of these drivers is to save energy. Thus, massive investments in the manufacturing industry are driving the growth of the variable frequency drive market in the Asia Pacific region
The growth in industrialization is driving a continuous need for electric motors, which consume one-third of the total electricity produced globally. Limited conventional power generation, coupled with a continuous rise in electricity prices, has encouraged companies to invest in energy-efficient equipment to increase energy efficiency. Energy-intensive industries such as oil & gas, metals & mining, pulp & paper, cement, and water & wastewater are using variable frequency drives to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Therefore, the increasing need for energy efficiency is expected to drive the growth of the variable frequency drives market.
