Flameproof motors are electric motors that have the potential to function in hazardous environments. The construction of modern flameproof motors prevents the entry of vapor, duct, or gas in the motor, thus preventing explosions. Industrial areas and manufacturing plants widely use flameproof motors. Flameproof motors contain flares, sparks, and other internal ignition elements to allow for safe operation in environments where explosive materials exist. Flameproof motors are used in hostile and hazardous environments that are prone to threats such as fire and short-circuits. Inflammable products are continually handled, stored, or processed in hazardous areas, which require special care to ensure the safety of personnel and maintenance of property. Flameproof motors are characterized by sturdy housing, which resists the explosion pressure and prevents an internal explosion from spreading to the outside. Flameproof motors also include a protective earth conductor terminal in the terminal box and external earth terminals. In standard electric motors, catastrophic damage can occur in hazardous environments. However, explosion-proof and flame-proof motors are manufactured to keep explosions within a sealed environment. They allow cool gases to escape so that they do not ignite surrounding materials in the manufacturing plant or industrial area.

A rise in demand for flameproof motors from the chemical and petrochemical and oil & gas industries is anticipated to drive the flameproof motors market during the forecast period. Due to a rise in urbanization and globalization, the work culture and lifestyles have changed. This has eventually increased the usage of petroleum and oil & gas products, which is helping these industries to expand rapidly. Moreover, these industries with hazardous environments are signficant consumers of flameproof motors, which is boosting the global flameproof motor market. Additionally, end-user industries are focusing on increasing their production capacity to fulfil the rising demand for their products. This has increased the need for energy-efficient equipment in different processes. Due to a rise in the consumption of electricity by energy-intensive industries, regulatory authorities are encouraging the adoption of energy-efficient equipment. This also is expected to boost demand for flameproof motors in the near future.

The flameproof motors market can be segmented based on voltage, type of hazardous area, end-user, and region. In terms of voltage, the flameproof motors market can be classified into low voltage flameproof motor and high voltage flameproof motor. Based on type of hazardous area, the flameproof motors market can be categorized into zone 0, zone 1, and zone 2. An area in which a flammable atmosphere is present continuously or for long periods of time comes under the zone 0 area. A hazardous area where a flammable atmosphere is likely to occur occasionally comes under zone 1. Zone 2 is an area in which in normal operation a flammable atmosphere probably occurs for a short period only. In terms of end-user, the flameproof motors market can be categorized into oil & gas, chemicals & petrochemicals, mining & metals, power, and other industries with hazardous environments. Based on region, the flameproof motors market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America is projected to dominate the global flameproof motors market throughout the forecast period, followed by Asia Pacific.

Some of the key players operating in the global flameproof motors market are ABB, General Electric, Rockwell Automation, Siemens, WEG, Kurt Maier Motor Press Pty Ltd, Hoyer Motors,  Nidec Industrial Solutions, Dietz Electric Co. Inc, NORD Drivesystems, Lawkim Ltd, NEW BHARAT, Power Transmission Equipment Limited, and Winkelmann Elektromotoren GmbH & Co. KG. Key market players are focused on the development and introduction of innovative flameproof motors. Intelligent integration of components is also a recent trend in the flameproof motors market.
