The Global Motion Control Market size is expected to reach $18.1 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 4.2% CAGR during the forecast period. A motion-control system initiates and also controls the load movement to perform work. This system is able to control the speed, position, and torque in a very precise manner. The motion control is used in those applications that require positioning of a product, synchronizing separate elements, or the quick start and stop of motion. Motion control systems consist of three basic components including a controller, amplifier or drive, and motor. The major factor that is driving the growth of the motion control market is the increasing adoption of advanced processes for factory automation.

In the past few years, there has been increased adoption of a motion control system as it is user-friendly and easy integration of the components in the motion control system. However, the higher cost of maintenance of motion control systems may hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, the Industrial Revolution 4.0 offers productive growth opportunities for the market players. There are numerous players in the motion control market and they are adopting different growth strategies such as product launch, business acquisition, product development, and business expansion to flourish in the market. For example, in 2018, Rockwell Automation brought an updated version of the Allen-Bradley Motion Analyzer software tool into the market. This updated software gives an optimized experience to users with workflow product selection and intuitive navigation. This in turn helps engineers to design complete motion control systems that work efficiently for their machines.

In the COVID-19 crisis, there is increasing adoption of automation in industrial facilities as it is beneficial in securing the health and safety of the employee. Moreover, high adoption of automated processes in the manufacturing sector, and safety-enabled output in industries owing to strict safety rules posed by governments are some of the factors fueling the market.
