Linear Motion Products Market to Grow at a CAGR of 7.7% Over 2024 – 2032; Rapid Integration of Linear Motion Technologies for Enhancing Production Processes to Bolster Market Expansion

March 11, 2024 | Machinery & Equipment

The global linear motion products market size stood at USD 11.88 billion in 2023. The market is predicted to rise from USD 12.54 billion in 2024 to USD 22.43 billion by 2032, recording a CAGR of 7.7% from 2024 to 2032.

Fortune Business Insights™ presents this information in its report titled, Linear Motion Products Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product (Bearings, Linear Guides & Tables, Actuator, Ball Screws, Linear Motors and Drives, and Others), By Application (Medical and Pharmaceuticals, Semiconductor & Electronics, Aerospace, Food & Beverages, Machining Tools, Automotive, and Others (Paper & Pulp)), and Regional Forecast, 2024 – 2032.  

Linear motion is a key aspect of modern motion control. It assists automation in several applications, such as robotics, packaging machines, and semiconductor manufacturing. Rapid integration of linear motion technologies for enhancing production processes and increasing efficiency in industries is boosting market expansion.

Major economies registered a reduction in their profit margins amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The sudden shutdown of production units restricted sales of linear motion products, which impeded market expansion during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Increase in Partnerships for Product Development by Key Players to Fuel Market Progress

In November 2023, NSK, Ltd. and Toppan Edge Inc. started a joint advancement of a maintenance system for industrial machinery. The maintenance management equipment is produced with the use of RFID tags that can sense temperature. The system comprises temperature-sensing RFID, an RFID reader compatible with tags, and a system that can assess and control the acquired data.

Rapid Integration of Industry 4.0 Techniques in Linear Motion Systems to Boost Market Development

Rapid integration of Industry 4.0 techniques, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, and connectivity, is influencing the linear motion products market growth. Key producers are integrating smart sensors and communication capabilities into linear motion systems for improved monitoring, control, and predictive maintenance. The preference for electromechanical linear actuators is increased due to their precision, flexibility, and ease of integration with digital control systems. This trend is notable in various industries, including manufacturing, robotics, and healthcare. The surging need for space-efficient designs in several industries is driving the demand for smaller, lighter, and more compact linear motion products. Miniaturized linear motion products meet all limited space requirements.

On the other hand, a lack of standardized specifications in various linear motion product categories is hampering market expansion.

Rise in Product Portfolio Offerings by Top Companies to Fuel Market Growth

The market is highly competitive, with several global participants and certain regions where the regional players have the highest market shares. Some players focus on increasing their product portfolio offerings to boost their market presence. NSK is engaged in producing bearings and linear motion products. It offers linear guides, ball screws, and other components for different applications.
