Drivers & Restraints-

Development of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Sectors to Aid in Expansion

An actuator comprises the key component of all the machines used by various industries such as food, manufacturing, automotive and transportation, agriculture, healthcare industry, and others. This stands as a key factor driving the global actuator market growth. This, coupled with the rising population, growing urbanization, and the increasing use of industrial robots for minimizing the chances of human errors are also expected to aid in the expansion of the market. Additionally, the increasing demand from aerospace and automotive industries is further expected to add impetus to the market in the coming years.

On the contrary, installing and maintaining pneumatic and hydraulic actuators is expensive, which may pose a major challenge to the market in the coming years. This, coupled with the current coronavirus pandemic that forced most of the international businesses to stay at a temporary halt may also hamper the market. Additionally, the possibility of oil or water leakage and other damages to the actuator is likely to cause a hindrance to the market in the coming years.

Nevertheless, the rising demand for commercial aircraft is expected to promote the growth of the market for actuators in the forecast period.


Hydraulic Segment to Emerge Dominant Owing to Growing Demand from Mining and Construction Sector

Based on segmentation by type, the hydraulic segment earned the dominant actuator market share in 2020. This is owing to the increasing adoption of hydraulic actuators in heavy equipment used by various application sectors such as mining, construction, agriculture, and others. This is further attributed to the integrated failure backup features and less power consumption. However, the electrical segment earned a 22% share and is likely to exhibit significant growth in the forecast period.
