Motion Control Market Continues to Expand

This study is 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.  Each GMC system includes three functional elements:  motion controller, drive, and motor.  Additional segmentation has been included in this report to analyze the subcomponents of each of the functional elements.

The dynamics in the motion control market have stabilized and have once again been restored to strong, steady growth conditions.  The market has been expanding into a broader range of applications and industries to increase the resilience to any single sector downturn.  Furthermore, currencies have become less volatile having less of an impact on year to year comparisons.

The forecast for 2017 is expected to remain very strong as the market had significant order backlogs going into the new year.  The economic slowdown in China has had a relatively minor impact on the motion control market.  This has been very positive news for the major automation suppliers, however, pricing in this region has become problematic as suppliers are lowering prices at all costs to gain market share.  

Mergers and acquisition activities among suppliers have continued over the years.  The most significant acquisitions and divestitures in the 2016-17 time frame have been incorporated into the analysis in the reporting.  This includes acquisitions by ABB, Moon, Allied Motion, and Omron.
