Global Motion Control Software Market 2017-2021

About Motion Control Software

Motion control software is a part of motion control system. Motion control systems provide flexibility in controlling the speed of motors. The software provides instructions to the motor controllers, based on instructions and feedback from the sensors. The motor controllers send signals to the motor drives, ensuring control over motor's speed and smooth functioning of the process. Motion control systems are used in various applications in the process and discrete industries.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Motion Control Software Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global motion control software market: ABB, Moog, National Instruments, Physik Instruments, and Rockwell Automation.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: SIGMATEK, LINAK, 3S-Smart Software Solutions GmbH & CODESYS, Mitsubishi Electric, Galil, Trio Motion Technology, and Siemens.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing need for cloud-based and wireless technology. The increase in demand for motion control systems has led to a greater need for analyzing data and taking appropriate steps to increase operational efficiency. The wireless technology and wireless devices have benefitted the motion control software market as data can be retrieved from all the devices in the loop and can be stored in cloud storage.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is improved technology in motion control software. Vendors in the motion control software market have proprietary software programming languages and are constantly trying to improve the software, to benefit the end-users with full-fledged support systems for the motion control systems. The advancement in modules ease system integration and programming. The end-users can configure their systems based on the application requirement, using communication protocols like Ethernet.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is availability of open-source and free software. The major challenge for the motion control software market is the availability of open-source and free software. Vendors are providing free software kits to the end-users to gain a competitive advantage, as the competition in the market is intense due to the presence of a considerable number of vendors. The vendors are providing the software at a low cost or as complementary with the whole motion control system. The availability of open-source motion control software has reduced the demand for paid software, as the small and medium industrial users prefer free software.
