With the decreasing cost of solutions and the expansion of applications in smart homes, intelligent logistics, and new energy vehicles, the BLDC motor controller market potential may explode, ushering in opportunities for rapid growth.


The BLDC motor controller is a critical device widely used in the field of motor control. With the continuous development of technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, the demand for BLDC motor controllers in the market is constantly increasing. This article will focus on the current status of the BLDC motor controller market, the enhancement of algorithms and control methods, and interpret the BLDC motor controller market from three aspects: application trends, cost optimization, and development space for semiconductor manufacturers.

Continuous Growth of the BLDC Motor Controller Market:

In recent years, BLDC motors are gradually replacing traditional motors, with the usage of BLDC motors increasing year by year, driving the continuous growth of the BLDC motor controller market. Its applications are very extensive, covering areas such as fans, household appliances, power tools, two-wheeled electric vehicles, pumps, compressors, agricultural machinery, automobiles, industrial automation, and robots.

According to market research agencies, the global motor drive IC market is expected to reach $4.24 billion by 2023 and $7.67 billion by 2033. The motor controller market is also enormous. It is reported that the global motor controller market will reach $21 billion in 2023, with an average annual growth rate of about 15%.

Typically, a BLDC motor controller includes semiconductor components such as MOSFETs or IGBTs, driver chips, controller chips, sensors, capacitors, inductors, rectifiers, and power management chips, which are used to control parameters such as the speed, position, and torque of the motor.

At present, both the motor controller and the upstream and downstream markets are thriving, with intense competition. Representative companies in the BLDC motor controller market include Topband, Herether, and Reed Smart, while upstream semiconductor device suppliers include ON Semiconductor, Powerex Technology, Ling Ouchip, Microchip, and Huaxin Microtech.

It is understood that upstream semiconductor device suppliers have adopted various strategic layouts in the BLDC motor controller market, including continuous product innovation and upgrades, close cooperation with partners, and strengthening of marketing efforts, to increase market share and meet customer demands.

Among them, Huaxin Microtech focuses on the market strategy layout in the field of electronic control segmentation, mainly targeting high-integration, cost-effective, and customized mid-to-high-end electronic control products and automotive electronic control products.

Since its establishment, Microchip has launched series products such as PT32L031 and PT32F030 for the BLDC motor market, and introduced the BLDC motor design platform Thor v1.2 with independent motor core algorithms. In terms of product iteration, Microchip continues to provide cost-effective products, such as PT32S038, which integrates CAN bus, 4-channel OP, and 4-channel comparators, and the Cortex-M0 core can reach a maximum clock frequency of 184MHz.

Which application areas have more development potential?

With the continuous development of technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, the application scenarios in these fields will become more diversified and intelligent. Industry insiders believe that in the future, there will be significant application potential in areas such as smart homes, intelligent logistics, and medical devices. As people's demand for quality of life increases, intelligent and automated products and services will become increasingly popular. At the same time, with the advent of an aging society, the demand for medical devices will also continue to increase. The development of these areas will further drive the BLDC motor controller market.

Lei Jiangfeng, the Market Director of Microchip, believes that BLDC motors first have the most potential in fields such as power tools. It is reported that the global power tool market has an annual shipment volume of nearly 400 million, including handheld tools and garden tools. Secondly, in fields such as fans, including fans, exhaust fans, and range hoods, high-speed air tubes have grown rapidly in recent years and are expected to greatly replace the traditional blower market shortly. Finally, in the field of automotive electronics, with the growth of the new energy vehicle market, BLDC motors can be used in applications such as electronic water pumps in new energy vehicles.

The application fields of BLDC motor controllers are extremely wide-ranging.

In recent years, the sales growth of new energy vehicles in China has surpassed that of traditional fuel vehicles, making China the world's largest market for new energy vehicles. Liu Peng, the Market Manager of Huaxin Microtech, stated that the automotive application segment accounts for the largest share, representing nearly 40% of the entire motor market. The number of motors used in new energy vehicles can exceed 200, with applications including closed-loop systems, power transmission systems, intelligent cabins, steering and chassis, and thermal management. It is revealed that Huaxin Microtech is currently planning to develop automotive-grade chips.

Market demand determines market space. At least from the current situation, the development potential of smart homes, intelligent logistics, medical equipment, power tools, and new energy vehicles has become increasingly apparent.
