The Hub Motor Market was estimated at USD 14.18 Billion in 2021 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 13.2% during the forecast period.

Hub Motor are also termed as wheel hub drive, wheel motor, and in-wheel motors. Hub Motors eliminates the need for axels, drivelines, and transmissions which helps in lowering the mechanical losses between engine components and the wheel, thus offering higher efficiency. Hub motors are widely used in electric vehicles like e-bikes, e-motorcycles, electric cars, and light, heavy, commercial, and passenger vehicles. Furthermore, easy installation, cost competitiveness, flexibility, and compact & lightweight design act as demand propellers.

Electric Vehicles Revolution: The Demand Generator for Hub Motors

The adoption of favourable government policies has also broadly promoted the purchase of EVs around the globe. Also, the increasing awareness about the harmful effects of automobiles which are powered by gasoline like increase air pollution which leads to harmful diseases and increasing toxic gases, and exhaustion of natural resources highly contribute to the rising demand for Electric Vehicles. Hub motors are becoming more and more popular throughout the world, driving up demand and drawing in more and more potential customers, which is helping to expand the motor market.

E-Bikes and Scooters Dominate the Market Demand in Volume Terms

In terms of volume, Electric Bikes have been the major application areas for hub motors due to its huge market and demand in developed as well as developing economies. Majority of growing economies in APAC has a huge pool of existing two wheelers. Recent trends show a clear inclination of 2 wheelers customers shifting towards EV bikes due to growing awareness, government subsidy and lower maintenance and fuel/charging cost. This trend is expected to create huge demand for hub motors applicable for 2 wheelers in this region. Passenger cars segment is expected to witness a slowe adoption of EV technology in growing economies due to high price and un compatible road infrastructure. Road infrastructure would play a major role in lower adoption for EVs in tier two and tier 3 cities in many Asian countries. However, the premium car segment will hugely get replaced by EVs due to better luxury and aesthetics along with technologically advanced functionalities.

The easy availability of mid-drive motors can hamper the overall potential growth market of hub motors.

Mid-drive motors can act as a restraint to the market as it can be utilized as an alternative to hub motors. Hub motors operated vehicles are not suitable for off-road and construction site applications due to its inefficiency to function in dirt and off-road sites. Mid-drive bikes can also be a better choice as it allows easy repairing and tire change.

Rear Hub Motor Lead the Market due to Higher Application
Rear Hub Motor has been estimated to be the largest contributor to this market by Installation type. This type of installation generally provides more traction, flexibility, and high acceleration than other types. These rear hub motors are best for higher power applications in vehicles. Gear type Hub Motors is increasing at a faster rate amongst all segments. This particular segment is growing swiftly as it adjusts the speed of the vehicle. It provides high torque at low speed this helps drivers to enjoy long uphill rides and is lightweight.

NO Stopping to APAC: Huge OEM Demand and Future Aftermarket Potential
Electronic Vehicles of Hub Motor have been a major sold product in the market of the Asia Pacific Region. Apart from the Asia Pacific, regions of China, India, and Japan also have a wide range of buyers. Electric Vehicles are in demand globally with growing market penetration in Asia Pacific countries. Government across many countries have planned to replace majority of gasoline engines with EV systems within 5 to10 years’ timeframe. China and India are two major countries with swiftly transforming automotive industry towards EV based vehicles from passenger cars to public transport and logistics.
