Market Overview

The safety motion control market is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.65 % over the forecast period of 2019 - 2024. Motion control system performs a wide variety of functions ranging from a simple unit assigned to move an object to a machine tool application that works with perfect coordination to execute multiple simultaneous movements. Moreover, due to the increasing rate of industrialization and high adoption of automation in the industrial process, the motion control market is witnessing growth to a large extent.

  • An integrated motion control system contains several components, such as motors, encoders, controllers, user interfaces, and associated software. Safety motion control systems are equipped with improved safety and security mechanisms. Over the last few years, a significant increase in the adoption of safety tools across the industry was registered.
  • The drivers for growth in the market are the increased demand for safety equipment across all major industry verticals, flexible automation functions, easy set-up and maintenance, and more importantly, industry safety standards mandating the use of safety systems in Europe, North America, and parts of the Asia-Pacific region.
  • High capital requirements, high deployment cost, and lack of availability of professionals are the major impediments to the growth in this market.

Scope of the Report

A safety motion controller contains motion profiles and target positions that create trajectories for motors and actuators. Motion control drives are a structural part of motion controllers. These are mainly used for process automation in various end-user industries, such as electronics and assembly, robotics, semiconductors, and food and beverages, among others. Due to the advancement in processing speed, precision, and reliability of these systems, the controllers are widely used in the industries.
