Low voltage segment accounted for largest share of the servo motors and drives market in 2019
In 2019, the low voltage segment accounted for the largest share of the servo motors and drives market, by voltage. Low-voltage servo motors and drives are compatible for use in mobile applications that demand high acceleration and braking processes, low noise, and high efficiency. Their compact size results in a smaller number of cables, which improves the overall diagnostics capabilities, making them highly useful for various control systems equipment in printing & paper, steel, cement, power, and petrochemicals industries.
Rotary system segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2020 to 2025
The rotary segment of servo motors and drives market, by system, is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during forecast period. Rotary servo motors allow interaction between all magnets and the windings in all positions. This results in low installation costs of the rotary servo motor in comparison with linear servo motor. Rotary servo motors offer benefits such as high-resolution precision feedback, low energy consumption, high response, and high torque density. This makes rotary servo motors useful for applications in packaging, healthcare, and automotive & transportation industries. Advancements in rotary system-based servo motors and drives, including the introduction of stainless steel, food-grade, ingression protection (IP)-grade, and hygienic servo motors, have led to an increasing demand from industries such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, and petrochemicals.
Permanent magnet segment projected to grow at highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025
The permanent magnet brake technology is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025. Permanent magnet brakes are small and have a low weight, resulting in large torque per size density. This has made them highly useful for applications requiring almost zero backlash, such as pick-and-place robots and other applications in the pharmaceuticals & healthcare industry. The increased use of permanent magnet brakes in industries such as automotive & transportation, pharmaceuticals & healthcare, textile, and packaging has propelled their market growth.
Industrial Ethernet communication protocol segment projected to grow at highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025
Based on communication protocol, the industrial Ethernet segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Protocols such as EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, POWERLINK, SERCOS III, and CC-Link IE, that provide real-time control are based on the industrial Ethernet architecture. Industrial Ethernet is mostly suited for industrial environments with harsh conditions where the factory components and equipment are exposed to extreme temperatures, humidity, and vibration. Industrial Ethernet offers various benefits, such as higher speed, increased connection distance, and the ability to connect more nodes than other network protocols. These benefits make industrial Ethernet highly suitable for industrial applications.
Other materials segment accounted for largest share of servo motors and drives market in 2019
