by Team Fact.MR
Converting source energy into motion, actuators in the automotive industry have been in a use for a long time. However, with technological advancements, automotive actuators are also being upgraded. Automotive manufacturers are also moving towards using electromechanical actuators due to the various benefits offered such as increased and consistent performance, low energy consumption and cost saving. Automotive actuator manufacturers are also developing actuators for next-gen by building a compact design that provides lightweight and low power consumption. There has also been an increase in the use of flap actuators in a Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system in cars. Meanwhile, smart automotive actuators are also gaining popularity, these actuators use microcontrollers to perform various tasks based on customer requirements. These smart actuators also offer reliability, fuel efficiency, etc. Engine downsizing and emission regulations are also driving the demand for actuators by automotive manufacturers with advanced technologies and smart control system.
According to the report compiled by Fact.MR, the global automotive actuators market is likely to witness robust growth. The market is estimated to register 6.1% CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2022. Owing to the better performance, consistency, and saving energy, actuators in the automotive industry are gaining a lot of traction. With increasing use in cars, manufacturers are also providing a new and improved form of actuators, thereby eliminating fluid leaks and improving energy efficiency. Mini electric actuators are also being used in automotive sensor system and advanced driver assistance system.
