The pneumatic cylinder, also known as air cylinder, is a mechanical device that uses air pressure to generate force in a linear motion. The pneumatic cylinders are similar to an automobile piston, which is forced by an inflow of pressurized gas in place of a gasoline explosion. After completing each stroke, the piston returns to its starting position.
In March 2022, Fabco-Air a company that provides pneumatic products and solutions announced a web store named shop.fabco-air.com. The Fabco-Air website was created to put forth all the standard products in collaboration with KYKLO Ltd., a content and e-commerce solution company for the electrical, automation, fluid, and energy industries.
Motion control, which is extensively employed in industrial machinery, is a common application of pneumatic cylinders. Pneumatic cylinders provide linear motion and pull, push, rotate and help clamp the machine components. Pneumatic cylinders can produce high force and a wide range of velocities. They are cost-effective and very easy to install. Hence they are widely used for conveyor belt operations, opening valves, and to lift heavy objects. All these advantages of pneumatic valves are driving growth of the global pneumatic cylinders market.
The global pneumatic cylinder market growth is being restrained due to high production and maintenance cost of the pneumatic cylinders. In some applications specific speeds are required and hence additional devices are attached to attain the required speed. This increases the cost of the pneumatic cylinders. Furthermore, pneumatic cylinders are less durable as they accumulate moisture. All these factors are restraining growth of the global pneumatic cylinder market.
Global Pneumatic Cylinder Market- Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
The spread of COVID-19 hampered the global economy severely. Lockdowns were imposed by governments of various countries. The trade between countries halted and this resulted in a shortage of components and materials in all sectors such as manufacturing, automobile, and others. The shortage and on time delivery of pneumatic cylinders increased as transport sector was also hampered due to the lockdown imposed during the pandemic. This hampered growth of the global pneumatic cylinder market.

Figure 1: Global Pneumatic Cylinder Market Share (%), By Region, 2021
Asia Pacific is expected to account for the largest market share of the global pneumatic cylinder market during the forecast period. The automobile sector is growing rapidly in the Asia Pacific region. Countries such as India and China are emerging economies and the population of these countries is growing exponentially. Hence, demand for passenger, and commercial vehicles is also increasing. Pneumatic cylinders are widely used in automobile manufacturing for conveyors, valve operations in processes, and lifting heavy parts of vehicles. To meet demand of automobiles the manufacturing plants have increased across Asia Pacific region and hence, demand for pneumatic valves has also increased leading to growth of the pneumatic cylinder market.
North America and Europe regions are expected to gain traction during the forecast period. The North American health care industry is growing rapidly as the population is growing immensely. In healthcare sector pneumatic cylinders are used in operating rooms, recovery rooms, medical devices, and other systems. Compressed air is provided to the health care industry with the help of pneumatic cylinders. Hence, the popularity of pneumatic cylinders is growing in the North America region which is driving growth of the pneumatic cylinder market in the North America region.
Robotics segment is expected to drive the global pneumatic cylinder market during the forecast period
Among applications, Robotics segment has gained popularity and robots are used in all industries and have wide range of applications in the field of manufacturing, healthcare, military, and others. In robotics pneumatic cylinders are used to control motion of robotic arms. Hence, the global pneumatic cylinder market will gain traction in the forecast period due to the rise in robotics applications.

The pneumatic cylinder, also known as air cylinder, is a mechanical device that uses air pressure to generate force in a linear motion. Various industrial applications require linear motion during its operating sequence. The integration or adoption of pneumatic cylinder is one of the simplest and cost-effective ways. The different style of pneumatic cylinder includes cylinders with piston rods, rodless cylinders, diaphragm cylinders, and rotary cylinders. Pneumatic Cylinder works on two basic operating principles: single acting and double acting. The single acting cylinder uses one air port to permit compressed air to enter the cylinder. Similarly, the double acting cylinder holds the air port at each end, which helps to move the piston forward and backward by alternating the port that receives high-pressure air.
Increasing production of mining industry plays a key role in the growth of the market as it directly increases demand for earth moving equipment. Various types of earth moving equipment such as dump trucks, dozers, loaders, and excavators are used for different mining operations. Increasing mining production in North America is one of the major factors for high demand for earth moving equipment in the region. Hence, increasing demand for earth moving equipment in North America boosts growth of the pneumatic cylinder market in this region.
