Linear Motor Market Outlook – 2027

The global linear motor market is experiencing a significant growth and is expected to grow considerably in next few years. Linear motor is an electric induction motor consisting of a linear stator and a rotor. They help in producing straight line motion as both stator and rotor are placed in parallel. Thus, linear motors produce linear force along their lengths instead of torque. These types of motors are easily controllable and user friendly. In addition, they have other advantages such as no moving parts, silent operations, compact size, and reduced maintenance. Therefore, they find their uses in various industrial and non-industrial applications like processing, packaging, robotics, and automation. Innovations in industrial and non-industrial applications paves the way for the market. 

The global linear motor market is segmented on the basis of type, axis, application, end users and region. Based on type, the market is divided into flat-type linear motor, U-channel linear motor, and cylindrical linear motor. On the basis of axis, the market is divided into single axis and multiple axis. In terms of application, the market is categorized into electronics and assembly, material handling, medical & pharmaceuticals, packaging & labelling, semiconductor machinery, mobile off highways, and others. On the basis of end users the market is divided petrochemical, healthcare, automotive, energy & utilities, electronics, food & beverages, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Key players operating in the global linear motor industry include ETEL S.A., MOOG INC, Danaher Corporation, FANUC Corporation, Aerotech Inc., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Yaskawa Electric Corporation, PiezoMotor, Rockwell Automation, Panasonic Corporation, and Others. These companies have adopted several strategies such as product launches, partnerships, collaborations, mergers & acquisitions, and joint ventures to strengthen their foothold in the global linear motor market.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis

  • Global linear motor market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. New projects throughout the world have stalled, which, in turn, have significant led to decline in demand for linear motors. 
  • Global factories have struggled to manufacture, integrate and assemble new technologies as workers have stayed in their homes and even the already available devices in various warehouses cannot be transported due to current rules and regulations, which, in turn, has disrupted the global supply chains.
  • This COVID-19 crisis is expected to provide opportunities for companies to invest, implement, and research in technologies, which involve less human touch. For instance, combination of AI and automation.
  • The impact of COVID-19 on linear motor market is temporary as just the production and supply chain is stalled. Once the situation improves, production, supply chains, and demand for these products are gradually going to increase as various growing industries.

Top Impacting Factors

The major factors that drive the growth of the linear motor market are the increased demand from the end use industries such as semiconductor, material handling, electronics and automotive. Moreover, additional advantages of linear motors over conventional motors and growing demand for medical equipment’s is driving the linear motor market growth. However, it’s high installation costs has hindered its market growth. But, rapidly growing pharmaceutical industry in the developing countries is expected to grow the market. 

New Product Launches to Flourish the Market

A new tubular linear motor-LinX M Series was launched was launched by ANCA motion in 2019. It offered peak force up to 1200 N and 10 micrometer of resolution. This latest series supports the latest automation applications and also increasing their efficiency at a reduced cost in a compact design. As the construction of LinX Linear motor is simple, there is no critical air gap and no contact between the forcer and the shaft, it is easier for manufacturers to simplify installation, extend machine life and reduce maintenance.

Surge in Use in Food and Beverages Industry

Automation is the foundation block for all packaging machines and food products. The challenges faced by machine builders are larger production quantities, changing quantity of packages, monitoring and recording all processes. All manufacturers desire to have monitored production and safe production of their goods. The linear motors help in providing machine builders with optimum components for putting the packaging and manufacturing processes in motion in the food and beverages industry.

Thus automation, improved processes and others have led to the surge in usage of linear motor in food and beverages industry.
