Growth Drivers:
  • Rising demand for automation in the packaging industry
  • Digital transformation in the industry 
Restraints & Challenges:
  • Huge expenditure of the installation and designing
  • Huge wastage of the material

Market Drivers:

Driver 1:

Developments in all the fields of automation technology continue to let the packaging operations to do much with very few. New mechatronic solutions that combine the principles of the mechanical and the electronical engineering for much flexibility and the machinery that is adaptable takes the further step are anticipated to drive the growth of the global linear motion system market.

Driver 2:

Packaging operations from the contract packagers with a very small slot dimensions and the large manufacturers that substitute betwixt the uniform or standard, mass produced products and the custom products on the similar line-now needs the quick changeovers. F&B producers are continually under the pressure to package a vast variety of products in many types of packaging without being compromised in the production.

Market Restraint:

Restraint 1:

The price of installation is a biggest challenge for the development of the market. Huge expenditure is vastly due to other components that require to be regarded where designing is a linear motion system, comprising the structural assistance , guides, drives, lubrication, seals and the accessories betwixt the two points is anticipated to hinder the growth of the linear motion system market.

Restraint 2:

Making a linear system requires starting from the base, with a structural assistance system. Majorly, the support systems main component is an aluminum extrusion. A strong base permits the system to rest on the end supports. Lighter extrusions often require intermittent assistance along their lengths which is anticipated to hinder the growth of the global linear motion system market.

Market Opportunities:

Opportunity 1:

Linear motion systems are vastly utilized over many industries and the organizations particularly the industry based on the higher carbon emission they are eco-friendly as they do not depend upon the fuel for the working and functioning. For material tackling industrial applications notifying the huge needs comprising packaging, placing, picking and sorting and then transporting the finished goods.

Opportunity 2:

The rapid growth in the industrialization is combined with the rising need for the digital change and the adoption of the automated process in several industries and are undoubtedly the notable factors fueling the linear motion systems growth. Furthermore, linear motion system are in huge need due to their superior performance in the rough surrounding conditions.

Market Key Takeaways/Trends:

Trend 1:

Linear motion control methods are very essential and are anticipated to witness robust growth as they are being utilized to automate the pandemic trial method. Linear motion systems are vastly utilized in the automated RT-PCR tests. The RT-PCR is dependable, hugely sensitive method for the identification of the virus. Hence the usage of the linear motion system is an indicator of rising number of hospital segments.

Trend 2:

Many companies and industries are using the digital linear motion system for the flexibility, enhanced configuration, productivity and the lesser time in the market.
