Electrical Steel Motors Amplify Electromobility in EVs

New developments in the rolled steel motor market have facilitated the inception of electrical steel. These electrical steel strips form the heart of electric motors, and determine the efficiency of electric vehicles (EVs). Heavy utilization of electrical steel motors in the EV market has triggered their growing prominence in battery-powered and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Thus, with the increasing adoption of electric vehicles by customers expected in the coming decade, manufacturers in the rolled steel motor market can profit from this trend.

As such, manufacturers in the rolled steel motor market are developing high-performance electrical steel motors that shorten production cycles with low temperature and less pressure for curing in the EV landscape. They are increasing focus on enhancing electromobility in EVs by eliminating the need for mechanical joining and welding to reduce the adverse effects that might affect the magnetic properties of electrical steel motors. For instance, Voestalpine - a steel industry company, announced the launch of isovac® and backlack-v® products that offer exceptional stamping properties and minimal magnetization losses for manufacturers in the EV space.

Cost-efficient and Advanced Washdown Motors Gain Prominence in Food & Beverage Applications

There is growing demand for durable washdown motors for various food & beverage (F&B) applications. To address this growing demand, manufacturers in the rolled steel motor market are engineering efficacious washdown motors that stand up against the rigors of food processing and beverage manufacturing. As such, the production of rolled steel motors is projected to be the second-highest for the food & beverage sector, i.e. ~17,500 thousand units in 2027. Thus, the demand for reliable and low-maintenance washdown motors is catalyzing market growth.

Manufacturers are increasing the application of rolled steel motors in other end markets such as meat packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, and sugar refining. Unique and time-saving washdown fan motors serve as cost-efficient alternative for stakeholders in the food & beverage landscape as they drastically minimize uptime during various processes. As such, manufacturers in the rolled steel motor market are innovating new waterproof and government-approved motors. To align with government regulations, manufacturers are developing non-toxic epoxy paint motors as well as paint-free motors that deliver superior performance to withstand caustic chemicals and high water pressures in the F&B space. 

High-quality Alloy Steel Minimizes Production Costs and Material Deficiencies

Rolled steel motors have a stabilized market growth in the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) sector. HVAC systems are becoming increasingly mainstream in new real estate and construction projects. However, the choice of materials for manufacturing these motors can pose as a tricky challenge for manufacturers in the rolled steel motor market.

For instance, the shaft is one of the main components in a rolled steel motor, which greatly affects the rotational capabilities of the system. However, the precise designing and prototyping of a shaft is a major challenge for manufacturers. This challenge increases the cost of production and results in material deficiencies. To overcome this challenge, manufacturers are developing motors with alloy steel, such as nickel-chromium or chromium-vanadium steel, to develop shafts with high strength. Also, medium carbon and medium tensile steel offer increased toughness and wear resistance in rolled steel motors.

Analysts’ Viewpoint on Rolled Steel Motor Market

The Asia Pacific region accounts for the highest production in the global rolled steel motor market, and is projected for an estimated output of ~32,300 thousand units by 2027. Due to exemption on custom duties for the manufacturing of steel products in India, market players can increase their production capacities in a rapidly growing economy like India. Manufacturers are increasing their production capabilities of motors made from hot-rolled plain carbon steel, as they cost much less than motors made from cold-rolled sulfurized steel. However, hot-rolled materials need to be larger in size than cold-rolled steel to gain outer diameter (OD) control in the rolling process. Manufacturers should develop strategic tie-ups with stakeholders in the HVAC landscape, as HVAC systems have become the required industry standard for the construction of new buildings.
