Low voltage segment the largest variable frequency drive market by voltage
Among the two major voltage segments of variable frequency drives: low voltage and medium voltage, the former held the largest market share in 2015.
Low voltage variable frequency drives have become popular mainly because of their ease of operation and size which is 25-40% smaller than medium voltage drives. Moreover, medium voltage drives are complex and difficult to handle or replace in case of a failure during an operation.
