Increasing Automation in End-user Industries Encourage Innovations in Motors and Motor Control Systems

With greater automation of facilities, the manufacturers of motor and motor control systems have been compelled to improve the speed and precision of machine tools and quality control machines. Process industries such as packaging, pharmaceuticals, and food processing have begun to increasingly adopt motor technologies, with alternating current (AC) offerings stealing the march over direct current (DC) products. Moreover, price reductions are also pushing end users toward investing in motors, especially variable speed drive technologies.

"Recently, the linear actuator technology underwent major changes to meet the growing demands for optimized productivity, reduced operating overheads, and automation of traditionally manual processes in a host of applications," says the analyst of this research service. Along with the launch of integrated solutions, improvements in linear actuator technology enables both original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users alike to benefit from quicker specification as well as installation, reduced maintenance requirements, longer product life, and enhanced system performance.

Need for Greater Efficiency to Outweigh High Costs in the Adoption of Motor Technologies

Price pressures within the industry can limit technology development and can stir up price wars, as end users may turn to traditional technologies for their lower prices. For instance, linear motors are more expensive than conventional rotary motors and thereby, less popular. However, manufacturers can hope to capture customer interest by balancing speed and precision requirements with pricing. Manufacturers should start looking beyond their local and domestic market to improve technology adoption of linear motors, and have to establish more numbers of foreign subsidiaries to realize greater productivity and international market penetration.

"The increasing need among OEMs for more efficient, advanced, and capable technology that offers greater flexibility and performance is a strong motivator for technology development in the motors sector," notes the analyst. "With increased interest in higher efficiency, smaller size, and superior torque technology, linear motors will prove to be an attractive proposition for controlling the reliability of automation systems." OEMs' rising need for ‘intelligent motors', improved high-speed connectivity, and higher energy efficiency are expected to prevail over the price issue and drive demand for motor technologies.
