Industrial Growth will Continue to Fuel the Demand for Motors in the Middle East

Executive Summary

- In 2012, the Middle Eastern market for Integral Horse Power (IHP) motors was $xx million, with a unit shipment of xx.
- IHP motors are of two types, alternating current (AC) motors (include squirrel cage, slip ring, and synchronous) and direct current (DC) motors. AC squirrel cage motors account for xx% of the total IHP motors market in the Middle East.
- In 2012, low voltage (LV) motors contributed to xx% of the revenue of the IHP AC motors segment.
- The IHP DC motors segment is limited to replacement demand; new DC motors are required in a few applications (mainly in metals and mining, cement, and oil and gas upstream) that require higher initial torque.
- With the advent of AC drive technology, AC motors are able to deliver full torque at start-up and variable speed, with precision. AC motors, along with AC drives, are relatively inexpensive compared to DC motors and incur lower maintenance costs. This has facilitated the gradual replacement of DC motors by AC motors.
- IHP motors with power ratings between xx and xx kilowatt (kW) contributed to xx% of the total IHP motors market revenue in 2012.
- While the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is expected to continue to be the dominant source for business, massive capacity augmentation and relevant investments in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kuwait, and Qatar, over the next xx-xx years, are expected to result in increased share for these countries.

CEO’s Perspective

- End users are opting for one-stop solution providers to mitigate issues arising from handling of multiple suppliers.
- Focus on aftersales market is on the rise to increase the overall profit margin level and thereby, boost revenue.
- Shift toward adoption of high-capacity IHP motors by end users provides revenue boost for medium voltage (MV) motors.
- Intense competition in the low voltage (LV) motors encourages suppliers to expand their MV motor product offerings.
- The increasing number of South Korean and Chinese engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors paves the way for the entry of IHP motor suppliers from countries local to these EPCs, thus, intensifying competition.
