Need to Achieve High Energy Efficiency Will Significantly Drive the Adoption of Electro Magnetic Compatibility Filter Until 2020, Says Technavio

By Business Wire News   


According to the latest research study released by Technavio, the global electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) filter market is expected to reach over USD 693 million by 2020.

This research report titled ‘Global Electromagnetic Compatibility Filter Market 2016-2020’, provides an in-depth analysis of market growth in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This market research report also includes up to date analysis and forecasts for various end-user segments.

“EMC filters are incorporated into modern drive systems to regulate the speed of the drive even when the input current fluctuates. Its adoption thus reduces the load on systems. EMC filters are compatible with motor drives and machine tools, mainframe computer networks, medical equipment, renewable energy sources, and alternate power supply devices. The use of old mechanical drive systems leads to large downtimes, which increase the cost of maintenance and production. It is expected to significantly augment the adoption of advanced EMCs in the future,” said Gaurav Mohindru, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for tools and components research.

Global EMC filter market in energy-efficient drive systems segment

The global EMC filter market in the energy-efficient drive systems segment was valued at USD 115.3 million in 2015. In industrial units, mechanical drives constitute about two-thirds of the total power requirement. Even in this era of advanced technology, most industries still use mechanical drive systems. These drive systems are operated in a continuous production process, and about three-fourth of the power supplied to the system for operations is lost. It is one of the major factors that determine operational costs in manufacturing plants.

By adopting new energy-efficient technologies, industries will not only reduce their power consumption but also lower carbon emissions and maintenance costs. These measures are anticipated to vastly improve the average lifecycle of manufacturing plant. Energy-efficient power drives are integrated with electronic circuits that regulate AC voltage by varying pulse shape and frequency. As the awareness grows globally on the need to save energy and the use of environmentally friendly manufacturing systems, the reliance on old mechanical drives will continue to decline and make way for widespread adoption of advanced EMC filters.

Global EMC filter market in the automotive segment

The global EMC filter market in the automotive segment was valued at USD 85.3 million in 2015. The automotive sector is growing fast, with new technologies incorporated into every product that rolls out into the market. This can be primarily observed in the electric vehicle (EV) market, which is driven by the growing support from a number of countries worldwide on account of purchase incentives and the rising customer demand for safer and more efficient vehicles. Safety aspects and the infotainment market in automobiles are also growing alongside. These multi-disciplinary electronic systems may cause interference in the functioning of critical automotive systems and affect their performance. Therefore, companies need to reduce the interference between such systems. These consist of multiple sensors onboard, control systems, and other such devices that need to function without any interference from other devices. Thus, EMC filters are integrated into these automotive systems to reduce impedance losses and deliver a constant drive even with variable energy input.

Global EMC filter market in the rail technology segment

The global EMC filter market in the rail technology segment was valued at USD 70.24 million in 2015. EMC filters are used in rail drive systems to avoid interference with onboard electronic systems like radio transmitters and navigation systems. They provide a reliable and fault-free operation of rail traction applications. Some major equipment that may cause interference are propulsion converters (AC/DC), besides auxiliary systems like HVACs, lighting, doors, controls, and communication devices. The drives and control systems in railways are exposed to almost all climatic conditions and have to operate under highly polluted conditions. Therefore, EMC filters are required to be dirt and moisture resistant and be able to withstand high operational temperatures.
