An actuator is a type of motor that controls a system. Technological advancements in microcontrollers and sensor technology have increased its applicability in the automobile industry to develop complex systems with higher levels of vehicular control & safety. It operates using a control signal and an energy source.
The control signal can be electric voltage or current and pneumatic or hydraulic pressure, whereas the energy source can be electric current, hydraulic fluid pressure, or pneumatic pressure. The signals are received via the control signal leading to conversion of source energy into mechanical motion by the actuator. Actuator is used in vehicles to convert source energy into motion.
The global automotive actuators market is driven by increase in emphasis of downsizing vehicular engines, government norms for vehicular emissions, and rise in demand for fuel-efficient automobile. In addition, growth in the number of road accidents, technological advancements, and surge in the automotive industry supplement the market growth.
However, early wear & tear of the actuator restrains the market growth. Conversely, a wide number of applications involving the use of actuators and growth in government regulations for fuel efficient vehicles in the developing countries are expected to unfold various opportunities for the market growth.
