Hydraulic And Electric Linear Actuators Market Research, 2032

The global hydraulic and electric linear actuators market size was valued at $54.3 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $118.2 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 8.1% from 2023 to 2032. Linear actuators, both hydraulic and electric, have varied uses and are necessary to provide linear motion. Hydraulic linear actuators harness the power of compressed hydraulic fluid for heavy-duty applications such as construction machinery through the use of a hydraulic cylinder, piston, and control valves. Despite its durability, the possibility of fluid leakage necessitates maintenance. On the other hand, precise and regulated movement is provided by electric linear actuators, which are driven by an electric motor, screw, or rod, and control system. These actuators, which are highly versatile and have applications in robotics, aircraft, and other fields, guarantee energy economy, quiet operation, and adaptability without posing the risk of hydraulic fluid leaks.
