by Team Fact.MR

Piezoelectric motors are witnessing heightened demand, underpinned by their utilization in a wide array of applications such as photonics, manufacturing process control, medical devices and metrology. Rapidly evolving production processes like 3D printing and advanced robotics are driving the need for motion control systems and miniature devices, which in turn will boost the growth of the piezoelectric motors market in the coming years.  On the back of these factors, the global piezoelectric motor market is projected to grow at a moderate rate of over 4% between 2019 and 2029, says Fact.MR.

Application areas such as robotics and factory automation in various industries have resulted in the growth of piezoelectric motors. The robotics and factory automation segment, combined, will witness an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 37 Mn between 2019 and 2029. Additionally, medical equipment and device manufacturers are rapidly moving towards the adoption of piezoelectric motors vis-a-vis electromagnetic motors. These include surgical devices, 3D scanners, MRI compatible robotics, ultrasonic emitters, drug delivery devices, laser beam steering, and devices used in dermatology, cosmetology, and ophthalmology.

Key Takeaways of the Global Piezoelectric Motor Market

  • According to Fact.MR, linear piezoelectric motor market is growing at a significant rate and is projected to witness an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 108 million during the forecast period
  • Piezoelectric motors are preferred over electromagnetic motors, as piezoelectric motors offer various advantages such as high operability in vacuum environments suitable for aerospace, semiconductor & electronics sector
  • Piezoelectric motors have high power to volume ratio with nearly zero noise level and can achieve speeds up to 1 m/s with 50 nm (nanometers) of resolution, which makes them suitable for applications that requires higher operating force or torque in a small space
  • Fact.MR says that North America is projected to be the most prominent market for piezoelectric motors and estimated to account for more than 25% of the global piezoelectric motor market throughout the forecast period on the back of growing demand for piezoelectric motors in the aerospace & defense, medical, and robotics sectors
  • Optics and photonics segment is anticipated to gather momentum due to increase in the application of piezoelectric motors in cameras, telescope, and microscopes. The segment will witness an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 38 Mn between 2019 and 2029

 “Prominent players are implementing ingenious techniques to achieve increased power density, yet higher upfront costs still pose a challenge to market growth”, says the Fact.MR analyst.
