The air-conditioner motor industry has maintained relative linkage with the downstream air-conditioning industry. Home air-conditioner sales have recovered in the cold year of 2013, and sales of the air-conditioning motor industry have gradually recovered. In the cold year of 2013, the total sales volume of domestic air-conditioning motors was 253.828 million units, an increase of 7.02% year-on-year. Among them, the sales volume was 194.59 million units, an increase of 4.91% year-on-year; the export volume was 59.238 million units, a year-on-year increase of 14.58%. Overall, in the next two years, the overall growth rate of the air-conditioning motor industry will slow down. With the continuous upgrading of the air-conditioning product structure, the proportion of brushless DC motors will continue to rise.
The air-conditioner motor market is mainly affected by the demand of the domestic machine market. Although the macroeconomic situation has not completely improved, the sales of air-conditioner motors have been affected by the stimulation of exit from energy-saving subsidies, the hot weather in colder weather in 2013, and the improvement in real estate sales. For the better. On the export side, air-conditioner motors also saw a significant increase in the cold year of 2013. Looking at the whole year, the major exporters of air-conditioning motors, such as China, Japan, and the United States, have seen a large increase in demand.
The air-conditioning industry clearly stated in its development plan that by 2015, the energy efficiency of inverter air conditioners will increase by 20% compared with 2010, and will increase by 20% from 2020 to 2015. According to data released by the National Information Center, sales of inverter air conditioners in the domestic market in the cold year of 2013 increased by 10.37% year-on-year, of which inverter air conditioners accounted for more than 51% of total air conditioner sales. The rapid popularization of inverter air conditioners has also led to the upgrading and technical upgrading of the air-conditioner motor industry. With the continuous improvement of the use of brushless DC motors in inverter air conditioners, sales of air-conditioning DC motors in the country are bound to maintain a high level in the past two years. In the cold year of 2013, the total sales volume of air-condition brushless DC motors was 320.11 million sets, a year-on-year increase of 66.5%. Despite the slowdown in the overall market demand for domestic air-conditioning motors, the number of air-conditioner manufacturers has further increased the proportion of inverter air-conditioner production and sales above the level of energy efficiency. This year, the domestic sales of air-conditioning DC motors have grown strongly, and the market share has further expanded. The ratio of DC motors to AC motors in the domestic market is approximately 16.5 to 83.5.
Due to the rapid release of domestic market demand, the pattern of maintaining a stable internal and external sales market has also changed over the years. The proportion of domestic sales jumped to 63%, while the proportion of exports fell accordingly. In the cold year of 2013, the total export volume of brushless DC motors was 18,497,000 units, a year-on-year increase of 20.02% year-on-year. For the domestic market, the DC motor export market maintained a relatively stable growth rate. The main reasons are that the demand for overseas DC motors is mainly concentrated in relatively developed countries and regions in Asia such as Japan and South Korea, and the demand for this market is basically saturated. However, in the underdeveloped regions, the level of frequency conversion of air conditioners is low, and the demand for DC motors is unlikely to increase significantly in the short term. In addition, the demand growth of the European and American markets is relatively stable and slow.
In the cold year of 2013, with the active promotion of energy-saving and high-efficiency air-conditioning products, the energy efficiency of inverter air conditioners continued to increase, and the sales volume of DC motors in China exceeded 30 million units in one fell swoop, and both the scale and growth rate hit a record high. In October 2013, the state officially raised the energy efficiency rating of inverter air conditioners. The implementation of the new standard will accelerate the penetration rate of DC motors in the variable frequency market. It is expected that the demand for domestic air conditioner DC motors will increase by more than 80% in 2014.
