Global Linear Motor Market 2019 Size, Share, Trends, Business Strategies, Gross Margin, Leading Vendors, Consumption Growth Rate and Forecast 2023

The Global Linear Motor Market was valued at USD 1,140.3 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 1,579.4 million by the end of forecast period with a CAGR of 5.74%.

Linear Motor Market Highlights

Linear Motor Market Growth in semiconductor and electronics industry is expected to create demand for linear motor market during the forecast period. One of the major advantages of linear motor is that it eliminates the belts, pulley and other rotation-to-translation mechanisms which is needed to convert rotary motion to linear motion.

Linear motors are used for producing high force at low speeds. Linear motors have functioning similar to torque motors with a difference in structure, wherein linear motors are rolled out flat as compared to torque motor which has a crystal structure. Linear motors’ design eliminates backlash, wear and maintenance issues associated with ball screw, belt, and other rack and pinion-based motion control systems.
