In-wheel motors are technologically advanced wheels used in electric vehicles. They provide more room for passengers and also helps with elimination of all transmission losses.
Global In-wheel Motors Market Dynamics:
Advantages of in-wheel motors over conventional motors wheel as effective maximization of interior space and improved or enhanced driving performance due to the independent traction control ability of each wheel is a major factor driving growth of the global in-wheel motors market. It also provides accuracy and speed.
Growing adoption of electrical vehicles owing to rising environmental concerns among individuals is another factor fueling growth of the global market. Currently, there are two types of motor systems available for electric vehicles. First type of the motor system is installed within the vehicle and is able to drive both left and right wheels using differential device and drive shaft, or belt drive. The other in-wheel motor system is directly installed in vehicle wheels and are able to deliver torque as per requirement.
In-wheel motors are used in electric vehicles and provide various advantages such as high torque density and high power density, high output torque at low speeds, high power output at high speeds, ability to operate at high speeds in a highly-efficient manner, and at a comparatively lower cost. Government regulations on carbon emissions and increasing use of electrical vehicles are factors anticipated propel growth of the global market. Furthermore, availability of technologically advanced in-wheel systems is a factor expected to boost growth of the global market over the forecast period.
However, in-wheel motors increase weight of the unsprung mass, which reduces comfort of the ride and road holding capability of the vehicle, and increases suspension level in travel to a certain extent. This factor is anticipated to restrain growth of the global in-wheel motors market in the near future.
Nevertheless, increasing number of well-established car manufacturers as well as domestic players are focusing on introducing or setting up electric vehicle plants and manufacturing facilities across the globe is anticipated to fuel growth of global in-wheel motors market.
