Alternators refer to devices which convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.
The working principle of alternators depends upon Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction in which the current is induced in the conductor surrounded by a magnetic field when there is a relative motion. Alternators find applications in electric generators; automotive, marine, gas and oil industries; power plants; etc. According to the latest report by the analyst, titled “Alternators Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the global alternators market reached a value of US$ 17.2 Billion in 2020.
Due to the increasing consumption of alternating current in different sectors, such as automotive, gas, industrial manufacturing, etc., the demand for alternators has witnessed a positive growth across the globe. Another key growth-inducing factor is the growing investment in grid infrastructure in the developing regions. Apart from this, modern day vehicles are equipped with an alternator which is driven by the engine to provide alternating current. Rising disposable incomes and prevalence of a luxurious lifestyle have led to a surge in the sales of vehicles over the years. Moreover, rising industrialisation along with growth in cogeneration offer new opportunities, thereby creating an attractive market for the alternators. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global alternators market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
