Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst end-users, automotive category to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on end-user industry, the linear motion system market has been classified into automotive, electronics and semiconductors, manufacturing, aerospace, healthcare, packaging, and others. To automate performance, lead screws and other linear motion components—such as electronic linear actuators—are used more commonly in automobile applications. Because they provide precise movement and high repeatability, linear motion systems are essential in the manufacturing processes used in the car industry. Transport, positioning, handling, sorting, and material provisioning on the production line are examples of general uses. In addition, the adoption of technology like linear actuators, which allow vehicles to open and close vents, windows, and sliding doors, is anticipated to be sped up by automation in the sector.

“Amongst system, the single axis to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on system type, the market is segmented into single axis and multi axis. The single axis segment is expected to hold a significant share in the market. The vendors in the market are focusing on manufacturing sophisticated motion control solutions according to the requirements of automation designers. For instance, in September 2020, Haydon Kerk Pittman launched the MiniSlide MSA series of linear actuators predesigned to offer single-axis linear motion. In addition, the product is designed to provide a compact and low profile, with a stable platform and two motor options, such as a 20 mm, 19000 series can-stack linear actuator and a 21mm, size eight hybrid linear actuator. Further, the incremental advancement in technology, coupled with a sustained increase in the development of manufacturing facilities, is driving the automation of material or product handling. This is driving the need for various single-axis motion linear systems.
