Automotive Actuators Market: Overview

Actuators are mechanical or electromechanical  devices which are used to control motion. They convert any form of energy usually electrical into motion. The effect is used in various industrial and scientific applications such as nanopositioning in semiconductor manufacturing, microfluidic motors and valves, etc. Another promising actuator concept relies on charge-induced changes of surface stress. This actuation concept requires the use of high-surface-area materials such as carbon nanotube based materials that have been extensively researched for this application, but that may prove to be too costly and to difficult to load in compression.

The characteristics on which actuators can be classified are mounting configuration, output torque, maximum speed, maximum extension, holding force, enclosure protection rating and others. They have various applications in motors, cylinders, rock and pinion arrangements, ball screws and other components.

Automotive actuators market: Drivers & Restraints

The actuator market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% because now manufacturers are focusing on making automated systems which will require actuators. This can also be used in air crafts and the demand is increasing because of the increase in air traffic and complete automation. Therefore the demand of actuators is increasing globally.

Rising wide number of application in the industries where high machineries are involved the demand of actuators increases globally. However high cost incurred in manufacturing of actuator devices may hamper the growth of actuator market in the future.

Traditional electric actuator technology has many drawbacks that limit its effectiveness for use on control valves. Successfully employed in the motion control industry for years, electric actuators based on servo motor and roller screw or planetary gear technologies eliminate these limitations allowing for a highly responsive, robust and accurate electric actuator solution that is well suited for valve control. Exlar has designed actuators specifically for valve control utilizing this technology. These actuator solutions accommodate a wide range of typical valve control applications, including installations in hazardous environments, and offer unheard of flexibility and performance relative to traditional solutions.
