Market Dynamics

Aerospace, defense, medical, steel & metal, electronic, and other industries are just a few of the industries that can use automation components. In developing countries such as India, China, and Africa, the demand for basic goods like electronics, personal care products, food, beverages, and medications has surged dramatically due to the exponential expansion in the world's population. This rise in consumer product demand has also increased the demand for manufacturing equipment, which in turn encourages the use of automation components in machine production and maintenance.

Also, the need for automation components like motors, gears, screws, sensors, and other parts is on the rise as automation and robots are used in a wide range of industries for production lines and other tasks. Major players in the industry such as Bosch Rexroth, Emerson Electric Co., Nidec Corporation and Parker Hannifin Corporation, are offering automation components for small- and large-scale industries. All such instances are expected to drive the automation components market growth.

The rapid pace of innovation, the need for industrial providers to adapt to new technology infrastructures and improve their operations and business processes, and the difficulty for businesses in this fiercely competitive market to plan, develop, and deploy new infrastructures while simultaneously focusing on their core competencies are the main factors limiting the growth of the automation components industry. Moreover, barriers to the expansion of the automation industry include technical competency gaps, a lack of understanding of the benefits of automated operations, and ongoing manufacturing process innovation.

The quick rate of innovation, the need for industrial providers to adapt to new technology infrastructures and enhance their operations and business processes, and the organization's difficulty in planning, building, and deploying new infrastructures while simultaneously focusing on their core strengths in this fiercely competitive market are the main factors limiting the growth of the market for automation components.

Automation Components Market by Components

By Component:

The automation components market is categorized into linear shafts, bushings, linear guides, locating pins, bearings, gears, couplings, actuators, motors, sensors, screws, rollers, and stages. The linear shaft is a horizontal, expertly crafted bar on which linear bearings are mounted to provide a linear guide system to support or direct the movement of equipment in a linear direction. The most typical application of bushings, which resemble thin tubes, is in machinery with rotating or sliding shafts in order to increase performance and lessen vibration and noise.

Bushings are useful for drilling operations in hydraulic external gear pumps, motors, and drill jigs. The linear guide is a component of a machine that moves heavy objects effortlessly in a straight line by using bearings that were designed for rotary motion. Locating pins can be used to locate a workpiece on a fixture, or to align two pieces of a fixture. One round fixture locating pin and one diamond pin are often used together to locate two holes without binding, because the diamond pin is relieved to locate in only 1 axis.

Bearing is a form of machine element that is helpful in constraining the relative motion to only the desired motion. Bearing used in a machine helps in reducing the friction between the moving parts thus providing free linear movement of the associated parts around a fixed axis. Gears are used to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to another, gears are structures with teeth that mesh together. The radius and number of teeth are two crucial characteristics that define gears. Usually, a shaft or base is used to mount them or link them to other components. Couplings are mostly used to connect two pieces of rotating machinery while allowing for some degree of end movement, misalignment, or both.

An actuator is a component that transforms energy and signals provided by either electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic source into the mechanical movement in the mechanism that generates mobility. It can generate either rotational or linear motion. The motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Its components include rotor, bearings, stator, air gap, windings, and commutator. Its components include rotor, bearings, stator, air gap, windings, and commutator. A sensor is a gadget that receives input of any kind from the physical world and reacts to it. Light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure, and a variety of other environmental phenomena can all be inputs. 

The motor segment is expected to be the largest revenue contributor during the forecast period. The sensor segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR share in the component segment in the automation components market during the forecast period.
