Drives Biz Is Up in Brazil. What About Machines?

Growth in the Brazilian market for medium-voltage drives will outpace the market in China by 2% over the next three years, with revenue growth forecast at 18.5% annually in Brazil from 2011 to 2014, according to two new studies by IMS Research.
China’s market is still considerably larger, accounting for 28% of the world’s drive consumption, compared with just 3% for Brazil.
The report says the recent high growth in Brazil is driven predominately by oil and gas, and mining expansion, as well as projects for infrastructure improvement.
