The global pneumatic cylinder market was valued at US$ 1,072 million in 2017, and is projected to reach US$ 1,401 million 2026, registering a CAGR of 3.0% over the forecast period from 2018 to 2026, according to Pneumatic Cylinder Market Report, the Market is Segmented By Function (Single-acting and Double-acting), By Cylinder (Cylinders with piston rods, Rod less cylinders, Diaphragm cylinders, and Rotary cylinders), By Movement (Linear Movement and Rotary Movement), By Application (Industrial, Robotics, Automobile, Aviation, Healthcare, and Others), and by Geography.
Increasing adoption for robotics in various industries such as automotive, electrical and electronics, mechanical, chemicals, food and beverages, and pharmaceuticals is one of the key factors for growth of the pneumatic cylinder market. Double-acting pneumatic cylinder is one of the major components of robots, using pneumatics cylinders as a main motion power source. Factors such as increased efficiency, reduction in human errors, requirement for clean and contamination free production area, efficient process management, appropriate usage of raw materials enables reduction in wastage, depletion in production time leading to rise in production levels are some of the key factors supporting high demand for robots in industry areas.
For instance, according to International Federation of Robotics, in China, 68,556 multipurpose industrial robots were shipped in 2016, and projected to reach 160,000 units by 2019. Hence, this increasing demand for multipurpose industrial robots directly increases growth of the pneumatic cylinder market, globally. In addition to this, increasing construction industry, in turn increases demand for earth moving equipment, which will boost growth of the market. For instance, according to the Chartered Institute of Building, the global construction industry accounted to US$ 8 trillion in 2015, and is projected to reach US$ 17.5 trillion in 2030, accounting 14.7% of the global GDP. Increasing urban population increases demand for earth moving equipment globally, which boosts the market growth. According to the Population Reference Bureau, in 2017 the world population was 7,536 million out of which 54% (about 4069 million) of the population lives in urban areas. Moreover, according to the Population Reference Bureau, 78% of the developed countries’ population lives in urban areas, while 49% population of emerging countries lives in urban areas. Hence, this increasing demand for earth moving equipment directly accelerates growth of the pneumatic cylinder market.
