Global Pneumatic Cylinder Market - Insights
Global pneumatic cylinder market generated revenue of US$ 1,072 Million in 2017. By 2026, the pneumatic cylinder market is expected to amount to US$ 1,401 Million with a CAGR of 3.0% over the forecast period. 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.
The double acting cylinder segment held the dominant position in 2018
On the basis of functionality, pneumatic cylinder market is segmented into single acting cylinder and double acting cylinder. The double acting cylinder segment held the dominant position in the pneumatic cylinder market and is projected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The double acting cylinders are faster, stronger, and require less energy to complete the task as compared to single acting cylinder. However, double acting pneumatic cylinders are more expensive. Increasing demand for high speed or forced mechanical devices in various industrial application is one of the major factors for high growth of the double acting cylinders segment. Moreover, double acting pneumatic cylinders are used in automobile, motorcycle, ATV, aeroplane landing gear suspensions, which will boost growth of the segment in the market during the forecast period. Double acting cylinders are found in jacks, fork lifts, garbage trucks, trash compactors, elevators, back hoes, and medical application such as ventilator. Increasing application of double acting cylinders in the space program as it is used to open and close the shuttle bay doors have forced to replace the electric motors with hydraulics and pneumatics cylinder due to high radiation level in the space.

Asia Pacific held the dominant position in pneumatic cylinder market in 2017
On the basis of geography, the pneumatic cylinder market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. Asia Pacific pneumatic cylinder market held the dominant position in the market and is expected to hold its dominance throughout the forecast period. India, China, and Japan are the major growth engines in this region. Increasing demand for earth moving equipment in Asia Pacific is one the key factors, which accelerated the demand for the pneumatic cylinder in the region. Rising number of construction projects in China is leading to increasing demand for earth moving equipment. For instance, after the announcement of ‘One Belt, One Road’ project by China government in 2013, the construction industry in the country is expected to witness a significant growth. The main aim of the project was to link three regions — Asia, Africa, and Europe. Moreover, increasing urban population in India has also increased demand for housing projects, which will directly increase the demand for earth moving equipment during the forecast period. For instance, according to Population Reference Bureau, the total population of India was 1,352.6 million in 2017, out of which, 33% (about 446 million) lives in urban areas. Furthermore, high investments for infrastructure development by the Indian government accelerated demand for earth moving equipment in India. For instance, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), in the Union Budget 2018 – 2019, the government allocated US$ 92.22 billion for infrastructure.
Key Players- Global Pneumatic Cylinder Market.
The major players operating in the global pneumatic cylinder market include SMC Corporation, Festo, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Aventics, Aro (Ingersoll Rand), Univer Group, Camozzi, Metal Work, AirTac, Ashun Fluid Power Co, and others.
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. For instance, according to World Mining Congress, the global mining production was pegged at 16.9 billion metric tons in 2016, up from 15.8 billion metric tons in 2010. 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. According to World Mining Congress, in 2016, North America held the second largest position in mining production with a 14.1% share in the world. Hence, increasing demand for earth moving equipment in North America boosts growth of the pneumatic cylinder market in this region.
