The actuators market is projected to grow from USD 53.9 billion in 2021 to USD 86.6 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 8.2% between 2021 and 2027. Increasing demand for actuators in the automotive industry, the rapid growth of industrialization and utilization of robotics, and rising demand for actuators in healthcare are some of the key factors driving the growth in the actuators market. Wide array of applications employing the use of linear actuators is one of the lucrative opportunities for actuator system providers during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 outbreak has triggered disruptions to global supply chains and business processes. While the pandemic did not impact the 2019 demand for valve actuators, the market projections do consider industry trends and how the COVID-19 pandemic will influence the valve actuators market in various vertical industries. Most industries utilizing actuators like agriculture, healthcare, automotive, aerospace and defense, and food and beverages were crushed negatively by the current COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. Apart from the healthcare sector, nearly all industrial sectors witnessed a downfall. Also, imposition of lockdowns and quarantine regulations internationally in India, Canada, and European nations have disturbed the normal flow of business, demand for sale or new projects, and revenue in major industries like aviation, automotive, and oil & gas. These industries normally are the prime business prospects for the actuators market.

Based on type, the linear actuator segment accounts for the largest market size during the forecast period
The growth of this segment can be attributed to their increased use in packaging machines, medical equipment, production machinery, transportation, and aerospace & defense industries. Increasing automation of industrial processes in emerging economies such as China and India is one of the factors expected to drive the growth of the actuators market across the globe

Based on the vertical, the automotive segment is projected to lead the market during the forecast period.
Actuators are not only used in major functional systems of an automobile but also in the bodywork and the interior of an automobile in the recent years. The demand for actuators that offer a high level of safety and control, as well as excellent process monitoring capabilities, is expected to increase in the oil & gas industry across the globe

“Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to account for a share of 48.2% of the actuators market in 2021. The actuators market in this region has been studied for Japan, China, India, South Korea, Taiwan, and the Rest of Asia Pacific.
