Automotive Hub Motors Market By Type (Direct Drive (Gearless) Hub Motor, Geared Hub Motor), By Application (Two-Wheelers, Electric Cars, Commercial Vehicles) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Electric motors installed in the hub of a wheel are known as wheel motors, in-wheel motors, or wheel hub drives. These motors are primarily used in electric bicycles and are seeing a steady rise in other applications, such as electric cars and commercial vehicles. The most prominent factor driving the market growth is the consistently rising penetration of electric bicycles as well as vehicles across different countries, including China, Germany, Japan, Belgium, Norway, France, the U.K., and the Netherlands. The penetration of electric vehicles is witnessing strong growth, especially in Europe. As a result, demand for hub motors will continue to rise over the forecast period.

Another prominent factor fueling the market's growth is the superior advantages of automotive hub motors over conventional drives. Several hub motor manufacturers are making efforts to develop viable hub motor designs that can cater to a wide range of vehicles. In the near future, many major automotive manufacturers have expressed their desire to venture into the electric vehicle segments, considering their huge potential. Thus, the automotive hub motor market can capitalize on this growth of electric vehicles. Nonetheless, the strict requirement of an electric supply onboard the vehicle is a major concern for the automotive hub motor market. Similarly, unsprung weight is another major concern affecting the design of vehicles equipped with hub motors.

  • Electric Cars
  • Commercial Vehicles

Their contribution to the global automotive hub motor market in 2016 is as shown in the figure below:

As of 2016, the two-wheelers segment led the global automotive hub motors market. The segment contributes to more than forty percent of the global market revenue as of 2016. Electric bicycles, scooters, and bikes have witnessed fairly high penetration across different countries worldwide. Countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, the Netherlands, and a few others have a strong penetration of electric two-wheelers. With the continually rising adoption of electric two-wheelers from countries such as the U.S., India, and other European countries, the segment would continue experiencing strong growth over the forecast period.

The electric car segment is yet to pick up due to the relatively low commercialization of these vehicles. Although there exist several concept cars, electric cars are yet to become popular, as compared to the two-wheeler segment. With the consistently growing efforts towards improving the design and affordability of electric cars, the segment is set to witness high growth in the following years. This would generate high demand for related components such as hub motors. Subsequently, electric cars would register the highest growth during the forecast period.

Based on geography, the global automotive hub motor market is segmented into the following regions and countries:

North America

  • U.S.
  • Canada

Europe
