Electric Actuator Market Outlook - 2026

The global electric actuator market size was valued at $15.54 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $28.73 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 6.6% from 2019 to 2026. Electric actuator is a mechanical or electro-mechanical device, which is used to convert electricity into kinetic energy. Actuators are used in various industries for regulating and directing the flow of fluids during various processes.

Actuators find application in various end-use industries such as water and wastewater treatment, food & beverage, oil & gas, refining, paper & pulp, mining, chemical, healthcare, marine, energy, and construction. There are two different types of electric actuators present in the market, which include rotary electric actuator and linear electric actuator. The rotary actuator rotates from the open to close using ball, plug valves & butterfly, and linear electric actuator offers linear motion via motor-driven ball screw or screw assembly.

Electric Actuators Market

The electric actuators are used for all aspect of remote manual control and some automatic control loops in conjunction with electronic control equipment. The electric actuator comprises three units such as motor unit, drive unit, and gear unit.  Motor unit is used for operating small valves and gear unit contained gear ratios, which resolute in conjunction with the motor size and drive unit.

The electric actuator market growth is majorly driven by increase in demand from oil & gas industry, as oil & gas industry is experiencing an increase in requirement of electric linear actuators. Also, growth in water and wastewater treatment industries and increase in safety measurements in industries drives the market growth.

Thus, growth in automation for industrial process is also expected to boost the growth of the electric actuator industry. However, rise in adoption of electric actuator in commercial and defense aircraft is expected to provide growth opportunities for the market.

The significant impacting factors in the electric actuator market include surge in demand from oil & gas industry, due to higher use of shale gas as an energy source would lead to rise in the demand for actuators. The oil & gas industry is currently creating the highest demand for electric linear actuator. These actuators are used for valve automation processes. In addition, growth in water and wastewater treatment industry, owing to water consumption and pollution have witnessed significant growth due to increase in population, environmental deprivation, and economic development.

Furthermore, technologically advanced processing methods, gradual increase in the need for automation in the process industries, and increase in investments by the emerging economies in the oil & gas industry. However, increase in competition from domestic manufacturers is expected to hinder the growth of the market. Each of these factors is anticipated to have a definite impact on the electric actuator market during the forecast period.
