DUBLIN--June 27, 2013: Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Electric Motors for Electric Vehicles 2013-2023: Forecasts, Technologies, Players" report to their offering.

“Electric Motors for Electric Vehicles 2013-2023: Forecasts, Technologies, Players”

All electric vehicles have at least one traction motor, so the market for electric vehicle traction motors is one of the largest markets for electric vehicle parts and a primary determinant of the performance and affordability of a given vehicle. Indeed, this research finds that in 2013, 44.6 million electric motors will be needed for vehicles, rising to 147.7 million in 2023.

Today, the motors that propel electric vehicles on land, through water and in the air are mainly brushless because brushed commutator motors are on the way out. Most of the number and the value of those brushless traction motors lies in permanent magnet synchronous ones, notably Brushless DC "BLDC", a form with trapezoidal waveform, and Permanent Magnet AC "PMAC", a type with a sinusoidal waveform. No matter: they both have excellent performance including simple provision of reverse and regenerative braking. However, that dominance is about to change. The main reason is not those well publicised but elusive in-wheel motors coming in at two to six per vehicle but simply the move to much larger vehicles and therefore motors.

Requirements for motors and forecasts for the following vehicle types are covered:

- Hybrid cars

- Pure electric cars

- Heavy industrial

- Buses

- Light industrial/commercial

- Micro EV/quadricycle

- Golf car and motorized gold caddy

- Mobility for the disabled

- Two-wheel and allied

- Military

- Marine

- Other

Key Topics Covered:

1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS

2. INTRODUCTION

3. ANALYSIS OF 125 TRACTION MOTOR MANUFACTURERS

4. 212 ELECTRIC VEHICLES AND THEIR MOTORS
