"Linear motion market estimated to grow at CAGR of 5.3% from 2018 to 2024"
The linear motion market was valued at USD 3.2 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 4.4 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. The drivers of the linear motion market include the increasing need for quality inspection and automation, reduced time-to-market, and growing demand for miniaturization of electronic devices in the semiconductor industry. Rising acquisitions and partnerships on linear motion technology, growing investments in industrial automation and robotics, and government initiatives to support industrial automation are key opportunities for the manufacturers and OEMs involved in the linear motion market. However, high initial cost of installation for low-volume production is the key restraining factor for market growth.
In the machine tool industry, there are various applications of linear motion, such as tool changers, parts feeding systems, gantries, and others. Linear motion components are used for automation of these processes to offer high reliability and low maintenance solution for these applications. These components focus on optimum performance of the equipment used to perform repetitive tasks. Thus, their accuracy and path-following capabilities provide precise results time-after-time, with greater flexibility than the other dedicated cutting machines. Hence, these factors drive the linear motion market for the machining tools industry.
APAC is expected to provide ample growth opportunities for the linear motion market as it is considered as a major manufacturing hub for most industries. China has been a potential market for all emerging technologies, including linear motion products. Its massive manufacturing industries have contributed to the growth and prosperity of the country. High growth observed in machine tool production and other sectors related to the production of electronic products and automobiles, which includes electronics assembly, semiconductor machineries, and customized robots for different applications are some of the reasons for the growth of the linear motion market in APAC.
