Motion Controllers have grown to be an integral part of the automation industry. These devices cater to a dynamic range of applications in multiple end-use industries around the globe. Motion controllers have witnessed significant growth during the past two decade owing to the increased dependence of industries on process and plant automation. Emerged as a dedicated unit for motion control, motion controllers have evolved to advance motion controllers integrated with PCs and PLCs (programmable logic controllers).
The global motion controller market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.0% over the period between 2017 and 2025, rising from a valuation of US$1,641.5 mn in 2016 to US$3,013.0 mn by 2025.
Based on type: Multi-axis Controllers Acquire Dominant Spot
Based on type of axis, the global motion controller market has been segmented into multi axis, and single motion controller. Of these, the segment of multi axis motion controllers garnered the maximum revenue and volume in 2016, and is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR over the report’s forecast period as well. The segment of single axis motion controller is anticipated to witness sluggish growth during the forecast period owing to requirement of additional or external power source of these devices.
