Linear Motion System Market

High demand from automotive industry is driving the linear motion systems market


The growth of the market vendors is predominantly dependent on the market conditions, government support, and industry development. Thus, the vendors should focus on improving services and expanding geographically. Thomson Industries, Inc., Bosch Rexroth AG, Schneider Electric Motion USA, SKF AB, and Nippon Bearing are the major companies in the market, which compete in terms of customization, quality, price, and technology. They primarily focus on the development of improved quality linear motion systems. Although the international players are dominating the market, regional and foreign players with small market shares also have a prominent presence here. The major players may strengthen their presence worldwide through acquisitions during the forecast period. Our projections believe that improvement of the global economic scenario combined with technological advancement in the emerging economies is expected to fuel the market growth, making it an ideal time to launch advance linear motion systems and increase the global market share.


Thomson Industries, Inc.is one of the prominent players in the linear motion systems market, holding 18% share. Recently, it has presented the latest addition to the Thomson shafting product line, T-Case™LinearRace® Shafting. The company has also donated a high-precision ball screw assembly to The Geek Group National Science Institute to help in developing revolutionary designs of Tesla Coils (TC).


Bosch Rexroth AG holds a share of 15% as of 2016. It is strengthening its business in Africa by expanding its industrial technology portfolio on the continent.. Bosch opened a new Research and Technology Center (RTC) in Sunnyvale California to strengthen the German automotive supplier group’s ties with the regional high-tech industry.


Schneider Electric Motion USA holds a share of 14% as of 2016. The company announced the release of Lexium MDrive® (LMD) Linear Actuators that deliver clean, quiet linear motion to a wide range of applications from medical to packaging.


The vendors with better technical and financial resources can develop innovative products that render the competitors' products obsolete and non-competitive even before they are launched, or their costs are recovered. Therefore, vendors have to develop new technologies and stay abreast of the emerging technologies that could affect the continuing competitiveness of their product lines in the market. The competitive environment in the market is likely to intensify further due to rapid industrialization, technological innovations, and partnerships & acquisition.
