Global Automotive Actuators Market Overview


The Automotive Actuators Market will see substantial growth at a rate of 7% from 2022 to 2030. The market size shall go from USD 22.8 billion in 2019 to USD 40 billion in 2030.   


Any source of energy in the vehicle can be converted into motion by the actuator, a mechanical component. It is a machine that takes energy produced by air, electricity, and liquid and transforms it into movement. From the ailerons on airplanes to the electric door locks in cars, actuators are everywhere. Actuators are used in industrial plants to control valves, fluid couplings, dampers, and other equipment for industrial process control. The central control unit's electrical signals are transformed into physical action by actuators. By controlling the engine's flywheel rotation, idle speed, and torque, the performance and engine efficiency of the vehicle are improved.


There are three different kinds of automotive actuators: hydraulic, electric, and pneumatic. In a hydraulic actuator, a fluid motor uses hydraulic power to carry out a mechanical action. Motion is produced either in an oscillatory, linear, or rotating fashion. The capacity to convert energy makes pneumatic actuators very popular. It promotes its use in engine controls because it transforms compressed air energy into linear motion. During this time, pneumatic actuators are employed in engine control to instantly fire operations; the system must react rapidly when beginning and stopping. The market for automotive actuators should also benefit from the surge in consumer demand for fuel-efficient vehicles.  


Automotive Actuators Market Driver


Automotive Actuators Market to Thrive Thanks to Surge in R&D


Research & Development to foster forthcoming innovations in the production of enhanced Automotive actuators. Research and development play a vital role in triggering innovation in the Automotive Actuators Market. This is a crucial factor that is expected to influence the Automotive Actuators Marke in the coming years, which could bring innovations in product offerings.


The European Czech Republic witnessed a similar incident when Eaton European Innovation Centre was awarded a $1.5 million grant from the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic. The project focuses on improving engine energy efficiency by building an advanced cylinder deactivation system, for which an electro-mechanical actuator would be developed along with other necessary hardware. The project would expand my expertise and knowledge in electro-mechanical actuator design and control. Moreover, the emergence of self-driven cars proliferates automotive actuator demand. Globally recognized automotive manufacturers such as GM, Ford, Toyota, Daimler, and others are moving towards automated and self-driven technology to offer ease and advancements in driving. Automotive actuators and sensors are widely used for the production of self-driven automated cars, owing to which the demand for automotive actuators is expected to grow significantly.


Sales of Passenger and Commercial Vehicles to Surge


The OEMs have made interiors one of their key priority areas in order to increase passenger safety and comfort as passenger and commercial vehicle sales continue to increase. Actuators have drawn a lot of attention as a result of this attempt to make seats more intelligent and pleasant.


For altering lumbar support systems, seat positions, angles, and seat track actuators, seats use actuators. There are many different kinds of car seat adjustment actuators on the market, including, among others, geared motors for reclining adjustment, double output shafts for track drives, and linear actuators for height and tilt adjustments.


The market can anticipate remarkable growth backed by the rise in the sales of SUVs and high-end automobiles on a global scale. To improve the experience of passengers, the OEMs have been implementing electronic systems to regulate practically every aspect of an automobile.
