This industry research report identifies Duff-Norton, Emerson, Moog, Rotork, and Val-Matic as the key vendors in the global mechanical actuators market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by type (linear mechanical actuators and rotary mechanical actuators), by end-user (water and wastewater treatment industry, aerospace and defense industry, marine industry, manufacturing industry, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global mechanical actuators market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the mechanical actuators market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 2% by 2021. The capability of these actuators to handle heavy loads and their easy maintenance are the primary factors that will have a positive influence on the growth of this market. Mechanical actuators can be used for an extensive range of applications in the discrete and process industries. These actuators have the ability to handle heavy loads, and the amount of thrust capacity they generate depends on their size and rating. Although the wear and tear are common in any actuator, the maintenance of mechanical actuators is easy, as there is no need to change the hydraulic fluid used or compress the air. The avoidance of leakages makes maintenance of mechanical actuators easier. The area of applications of these actuators include load lifting mechanisms, mainly in the shipbuilding, water and wastewater treatment, and defense and aerospace industries.

In terms of geographic regions, the Americas accounted for the major shares of the mechanical actuators market during 2016. However, APAC will lead the market by the end of the forecast period due to the increased investments in the aerospace and defense sector and power and petrochemicals industries in countries such as India. Moreover, the adoption of smart manufacturing in industries in China, India, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea will also propel the market's growth in APAC.

Competitive landscape and key vendors  

The mechanical actuators market is highly fragmented due to the presence of numerous established players. The competition in this market is high and this makes it difficult for new players to enter this marketspace. Most of the vendors serve the end-user market with linear mechanical actuators, as these are used more commonly than rotary mechanical actuators.

The leading vendors in the market are ?

  • Duff-Norton
  • Emerson
  • Moog
  • Rotork
  • Val-Matic   

The other prominent vendors in the market are Tolomatic, TiMOTION, Warner Linear, Sonceboz, Aerotech, Thomson, Physik Instrumente (PI), Venture, Exlar Actuation Solutions, Varedan Technologies, REXA, and ENERPAC.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the mechanical actuators market

  • Linear mechanical actuators
  • Rotary mechanical actuators

During 2016, the linear mechanical actuators segment accounted for the major shares of the mechanical actuators market. The growth of this market segment is mainly driven by the wide usage of actuators in the aerospace and defense, marine, and automobile industries. Moreover, the establishment of numerous manufacturing hubs in countries such as Singapore, Taiwan, and India also accelerates the growth of this market segment.

Segmentation by end-user and analysis of the mechanical actuators market

  • Water and wastewater treatment industry
  • Aerospace and defense industry
  • Marine industry
  • Manufacturing industry

According to this market research report, the water and wastewater treatment segment accounted for the maximum shares of the mechanical actuators market during 2016. This segment will retain its lead during the next four years due to the increasing usage of mechanical actuators in the water and wastewater industry for wash water return-valves, filter flow control valves, filter backlash valves, and sludge valves.
