Global Linear Motion Systems Market: Dynamics
Shift in technology from pneumatic and hydraulic systems towards electromechanical systems to meet the demand for flexibility, reliability, higher precision, and greater efficiency with reduced energy use. The aforementioned reasons are expected to propel the demand for linear motion systems and this, in turn, will push the growth of the linear motion systems market. Further, the growing trend of machinery to facilitate greater efficiency is expected to continue and sustain industrial growth, especially in the Americas and Europe.
Further, growing automotive sales and increasing vehicle parc has resulted in increasing carbon emission, which makes automotive sector a key contributor to the greenhouse effect. As a result, various agencies have created regulations for the development of vehicles and green technologies that are fuel efficient. This, in turn, will escalate the demand for linear motion products, such as roller screws and ball screws, etc.
With the ever increasing contraction of electronics, equipment manufacturing has also deteriorated. Thus, the manufacturers of linear motion systems are focussing on the development of products that are small, maintenance-free as well as eliminate the need for re-lubrication. This is anticipated to be one of the key trends identified in the market over the near future. Another trend in the market is that the manufacturers are developing industry 4.0 components that are applicable to enterprise-level connectivity.
Global Linear Motion Systems Market: Regional Outlook
Considering regions, the global linear motion systems market is expected to be strongly dominated by the Asia-Pacific region. Owing to the growing end-use industries across India and China, the demand for linear motion systems is expected to rise continuously. Europe is anticipated to follow the Asia Pacific in the market in terms of demand. North America is expected to account for a small share in the market. However, it is expected to grow at a significant rate in the market in near future. Slow growth in end-use industries across countries, such as Mexico, Brazil etc., is the key factor affecting the demand for linear motion systems in the Latin American region.
