The medium power range segment comprises variable speed drives with power ranging from 41 kW to 200 kW. The segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR of 7.8% over the forecast period owing to the growing demand for variable frequency drives from end-use sectors, such as power, oil and gas, marine, and chemical sectors.

By Application Analysis

The pumps segment accounted for a dominant share of the market in 2019. In industries such as wastewater, oil and gas, etc., the hydraulic drives assimilated with pumps are being substituted by variable frequency drives, to smoothen the operations of the motors and simultaneously lower the energy consumption. 

The HVAC application segment is estimated to expand at the highest CAGR of 8.0% over the forecast period. Increasing residential and non-residential construction across the developed and emerging economies are expected to increase the demand for the HVAC systems. 

By End-Use Analysis

 Based on end-use, the market for VFD is segmented into oil and gas, industrial, power generation, infrastructure, food and beverages, automotive, and others. The oil and gas segment is expected to hold a dominant share throughout the forecast period.

The infrastructure segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR of 8.8% from 2021 to 2030, owing to increasing demand for variable frequency drives from the construction industry.

By Regional Analysis 

The Asia Pacific market was valued at USD 7.7 billion in 2021, holding a dominant share of the overall variable frequency drive market. Rising demand for energy optimization, supportive government regulations and policies, and increasing focus on developing the manufacturing sector are the key factors leading to the market growth in the region. 

The Latin American market is projected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to increasing industrialization in emerging countries such as Brazil and Mexico.
