Global Actuators Market, By Actuation (Electrical, Pneumatic, Hydraulic), By Type (Linear, Rotary),

Published Date: | Report Code : EQ1958682


Market Dynamics:

The increasing demand for advanced & cost-effective actuators as well as for industrial robots & process automation is expected to drive the growth of the Global Actuators Market during the forecast period. This has resulted in some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

An actuator is usually a component of a machine that is responsible for moving and controlling a mechanism or system. An actuator generally requires a control signal as well as a source of energy, when it receives a control signal, an actuator responds by converting the signal's energy into mechanical motion.

Segment Analysis:

The global actuator market is segmented on the basis of actuation, type, and application

On the basis of actuation, it is segmented into electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic. Pneumatic actuators are most widely used due to the increasing demand for highly efficient actuators which consume less energy has fueled the growth of the actuators market. The various technological advancements in pneumatic actuators are enabling availability at lower prices as compared to other actuator types, which are also more efficient, thus leading to the increasing demand for pneumatic actuators.

Based on type, it is segregated into linear and rotary. The linear type of actuation is majorly used in various end-use industries such as manufacturing, packaging machines, medical equipment, production machinery, transportation, aerospace, and defense, as they are more economic.

On the basis of application, it is segmented into industrial automation, robotics, vehicles & equipment. The increasing investments in process automation of numerous industry verticals, rising demand for robots, and technological advancements in actuators have also positively impacted the market.
