COVID-19 Impact on Electric Motors Market

Owing to the pandemic, the electric motors market is anticipated to contract slightly through 2020. This can be attributed to subdued demand for industrial equipment in countries such as China in the first quarter of 2020.

End users across various industries have put their orders on hold and cut down on investments in new equipment across different verticals.

A slight sluggishness had also been observed in the market in the year 2019 owing to the ongoing trade war which had put a dent on exports and imports of industrial goods.

Some optimism was there that the market will rebound by 2020, but the pandemic has dampened consumer and manufacturer confidence.
