Key Findings

•Sales of lower power electric drives, below xx kilowatt (kW), are poised to increase during the forecast period as users adopt drive solutions in low power applications. Because users realize energy savings in high power applications, they will likely fine tune energy savings by deploying drives in lower power applications.
•While retrofit projects provide a direct sales opportunity for drives manufacturers, electric drives used in new installations are sold through original equipment manufacturers (OEM).
•From 2014 to 2018, the rubber, plastics, glass, and ceramics (RPGC) segment is expected to be the fastest growing end-user segment throughout all European regions as it produces intermediary products that are used in other industries. The need among these end users to increase their profit margins encourages the use of electric drives.
•Growth in demand for electric drives from the printing industry is expected to be the lowest during the forecast period as the demand for printed material is poised to decrease because of the intervention from electronic media. As a result, new investments in printing equipment will likely decrease.
•Tier I manufacturers target specific end-user industries, whereas Tier II manufacturers target specific applications and OEMs that manufacture the related equipment.

CEO’s Perspective

The electronics and communication (E&C) end user will likely be a key segment as it is less concentrated and is expected to grow significantly.
While the automotive and transportation (A&T) segment is poised to grow significantly in Eastern Europe, it is expected to shrink in Western and Southern Europe.
A&T and consumer packaged goods (CPG) are the largest and highly concentrated segments. Their presence is Eastern Europe will be the key for selling drives to the A&T segment.
Servo drives are expected to be the fastest growing product segment, with key applications in industries such as E&C, machine tools, packaging.
Tier I manufacturers generate demand mainly through the pull model as end users choose them, while Tier II manufacturers generate demand through the push model as their sales teams influence OEMs to choose them.
