About Motion Control
Motion control systems provide agility and flexibility to industrial processes by controlling the speed, position, and velocity of machines. They are used in discrete industries such as packaging and labeling, semiconductor, material handling, and automotive; process industries such as power, energy, oil and gas; and hybrid industries such as F&B, metal and mining, and life sciences.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global motion control market to grow at a CAGR of 3.84% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Motion Control Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Motion Control Market: ABB, Parker Hannifin, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, Siemens, and Yaskawa Electric.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ACS Motion Control, Advanced Motion Control, Aerotech, Altra Industrial Motion, Beckoff, Bosch Rexorth, Delta Motion, Galil, Mitsubishi Electric, Moog, Nanotec, and Omron Industrial Automation.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Industries are adopting network motion control to reduce operational complexity; it also reduces wiring and costs, and increases reliability. This technique can be effectively used in conveyor belts, standalone machines, and hybrid controller systems. In a typical application of a conveyor belt system, multiple actuators are used along the distance of a conveyor belt, which are interconnected. The use of network motion control in this system will likely reduce the wiring to a large extent, reducing the overall cost and complexity.”
According to the report, automation in industries such as automotive, F&B, electronics, and semiconductors is likely to expand the global motion control market. High flexibility and productivity in plants can be achieved through the combination of automation and motion control products, such as drives and actuators, which help operators control motion of the machines with accuracy and precision.
Further, the report states that any slowdown in the economies of these countries will directly affect the growth of their automotive and industrial sectors, hampering the export growth.
