Overview

​​​​​Globalization and Emerging Economies Drive Growth
This study provides a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the general motion control (GMC) market, including market size and segmentation, market forecast, industry structure, and supplier market shares and profiles.  GMC systems include three functional elements: motion controller, drive, and motor.  The general motion control market has returned to a sustained growth period, as demand for automated machinery continues to remain strong in some of the larger sectors of the market.  Unit growth continues to surpass revenue growth as machines currently employing motion control are increasing the number of axes, while machines that never employed electromechanical solutions now incorporate motion control.  Based on our interviews with automation suppliers, the average axis count per machine has increased.  Highly integrated solutions along with networked architectures are becoming dominant choices for the high-performance segment of the machinery market.  However, ARC research indicates that there is a move away from using general-purpose programmable automation controller (PAC) platforms toward dedicated machine controller platforms. Machine controllers cater specifically to the requirements of machinery used in discrete manufacturing operations without adding unnecessary overhead.  

Strategic Issues 
Automation is essential as manufacturers continue to face challenges to compete in the global economy.  This is creating opportunities for all GMC suppliers.  However, the automation market dynamics also remain extremely competitive.  The challenge in the market landscape is how GMC suppliers can differentiate themselves.  This study will help to offer strategies, such as:

Which regional markets to target
What support services to offer
Long-term trends creating opportunity
Forming relationships with OEMs
