    Although the effects of COVID-19 on the industrial automation equipment market were not obvious in the first quarter of this year, it seems that the worst is yet to come. Looking specifically at motors and drives, end users across all industries have put orders on hold and reduced investments in new equipment. Some industries like food & beverage and other consumer-driven applications have remained unaffected, but the main takeaway is that the impact of COVID-19 on the motor and drive markets has been quite detrimental.

    The global low-voltage (LV) drive market was sluggish in 2019 after a 5% growth in 2018 over 2017. The slowdown in the LV drive market was due to trade and political uncertainties, with an expectation of recovery toward the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. However, this optimism was wiped out by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the crash in global oil prices in April 2020.
