Integration of Variable Frequency Drives in Industry 4. Expected to Drive Global Market

The dawn of Industry 4.0 has led to a significant transformation in modern-day industries with automation at the helm of all major developments. Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are increasingly being deployed within the Industry 4.0 sphere, particularly in high-demanding power applications. The fast-paced industrialization and urbanization around the world are expected to increase the demand for variable frequency drives. Electrical appliances that have a non-linear load such as personal computers, AC and DC motor drives, and LED lighting display some level of harmonics. Power correction, stability, and apprehensions overpower quality continue to remain key parameters in industrial settings worldwide. As the industrial sector continues to emphasize on energy savings, electrical reliability is another area of concern that continues to gain the attention of participants involved in the industrial sector. Harmonic mitigation has gained ground over the past couple of decades due to which, the demand for harmonic filters is projected to move in the upward trajectory during the forecast period.

The adoption of harmonic filters is expected to grow at a rapid pace, as they reduce distortions in networks with significantly high levels of harmonics. The applicability of passive or active filters primarily depends on voltage levels of different applications. Active harmonic filters are increasingly used for low-voltage applications. Thus, passive harmonic filters are expected to dominate the harmonic filter market during the forecast period, due to high demand for the same from medium to high-voltage applications.

Harmonic Filter Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global harmonic filter market for the historical period of 2017–2018 and the forecast period of 2019–2027, the rising demand for harmonic filters for use in various applications is expected to boost the global harmonic filter market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global harmonic filter market is estimated to reach value of ~US$ 1.5 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period

Growing Concerns about Reliable and Efficient Power Supply: A Key Driver

  • Demand for power is increasing continuously and the quality and reliability of power are becoming increasingly important
  • Harmonics frequencies generated in individual facilities severely affect the transmitted power around a power line. Harmonic frequencies is major cause of power quality problems. In order to eliminate this disturbance, utilities have started imposing severe penalties and, in some cases, they shut down power supply to harmonics defaulters.
  • In addition, governments of various countries are taking initiatives for setting a permissible harmonic distortion limit
  • Moreover, rise in the demand for modernized power grids and general preference for renewable energy applications are boosting the demand for harmonic filters
  • Growing urbanization and increasing population have fueled the demand for power generation, telecommunications, infrastructure, and mass transportation
  • These factors are expected to drive the global harmonic filter market during the forecast period

Increasing Demand from IT and Data Centers Offers Opportunities to Harmonic Filter Market

  • The global information technology (IT) industry is expanding at a rapid pace and it is propelled by the development of IT infrastructure across the globe
  • Growing urbanization has fueled the demand for telecommunications, infrastructure, and mass transportation. With growth of these sectors, leading companies are experiencing requirements in terms of infrastructure development such as high-end machines, routers, servers, as well as commercial space, lighting systems, and centralized air-conditioning systems.
  • These systems is a major source of harmonic distortion. Consumer awareness about the mitigation of harmonics in the global IT industry is increasing and large players in the global IT industry are becoming aware of the effect of harmonic distortion on their energy expenditures.
  • Thus, the need to minimize the level of harmonic distortion in power for IT and data centers fuels the demand for harmonic filters. Furthermore, growth of the global IT industry offers an opportunity to the global harmonic filter market.
  • Thus, rise in spending in the IT industry is expected to support the adoption of high-end machines and equipment with non-linear loads, thereby giving rise to harmonics.
