An actuator is a mechanical component that assists in converting energy into motion and controls machinery equipment and systems. The device usually works on hydraulic and pneumatic forces and can be operated manually, electronically or through a software program. Actuators move in linear and rotary motions. The linear motion converts energy for positioning other equipment and subsequently perform push and pull function. On the other hand, rotary motion provides movement to various ball and butterfly valves. Actuators are most commonly used in the form of electric motors, solenoids, hard drive stepper motors and comb drivers and find extensive applications across various sectors like oil and gas, power generation, chemicals, food & beverages, metals & mining, automotive, aerospace, etc.

Actuators Market Trends:
Rapid industrialization is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, technological advancements in the automotive industry, such as the introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) have significantly enhanced the utilization of actuators. The rising trend of automation across various industries is another major growth-inducing factor. The implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) has facilitated automation of actuators for enhanced productivity and reduced downtime in the industrial and manufacturing units. They provide high precision and control, along with reduced noise creation and fuel leakages. Moreover, an increasing number of aircraft carriers are being equipped with actuators on each wing to maintain efficient flight at low airspeeds, thereby driving the product demand. Other factors, including product innovations such as the development of actuators with low carbon emissions and extensive research and development (R&D), are also augmenting the growth of the market.
