Report Highlights

The global market can be segmented based on component into cylinders, drives, servo valves, manifolds, and others. Servo valves dominated the market with a share of 27.5% in 2019. Components are crucial parts of every actuator as they offer desired characteristics to a product. The need for a specific component in the actuators depends on its use in specific applications for motion control and precision. The components used by the manufacturer may differ based on requirements and the area of application. The rise in the use of direction control valves and electrically modulated valves fuel the growth of servo valves.

Cylinders are projected to witness significant growth in the forecast period owing to their use for storing, transporting, and dispensing gases in defense and military vehicles. Demand for drives is projected to be moderate throughout the forecast period because of their increased use to control the motor speed to reduce shock hazards.

The global market is segmented based on the system into hydraulic, electric, pneumatic, electromechanical, electrohydraulic, and others. The hydraulic actuators segment dominated the market with a share of 24.4% in 2019. Hydraulic actuators are powered by hydraulic fluids and are most suitable in armor plate and gun positioning applications. Hydraulic systems are projected to be a market leader in the aerospace and defense industry on account of their high power density and low cost. However, issues with their weight, high maintenance, and leakage may hamper the segment growth over the forecast period.

The electrical actuator systems are replacing hydraulic systems. The electrical actuators are anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 5.7% from 2020 to 2027 owing to their improved performance, low maintenance cost, improved security, and lightweight. Electrical actuator systems are widely used in flight control systems, thus witnessing increased demand from the aviation sector.

The type segment is bifurcated into rotary actuators, linear actuators, multi-axis positioning actuators, and semi-rotary actuators. The rotary actuator type segment held the largest share of 32.4% in 2019. Rotary actuators are traditionally being used in valves and gates and precision control applications in the aviation and defense industries.

The linear actuator type is projected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 5.5% from 2020 to 2027. Linear actuator transforms rotary motion to linear one and controls linear motion. Screw-driven,belt-driven, and rod-driven linear actuators are widely used in various military applications. Screw-driven types are used in servo motors and control hardware.

The global market can be segmented based on application into air, land, and naval applications. The land application segment dominated the market with a share of 37.0% in 2019 and is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. This is attributed to the demand for advanced protection equipment, rising homeland security concerns, and government initiatives that have fueled the demand for military actuators.

North America accounted for the largest share of 33.6% in 2019 owing to the rising demand for advanced protection solutions in the defense and military sector. The U.S., being the top military spender in the world, is occupied with the most advanced and large number of defense equipment, thus contributing significantly to the growth of the market in North America.

Asia Pacific is projected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.0% from 2020 to 2027 owing to the prominence of China, India, and other Asian countries. Internal conflicts, homeland security issues, and on-border tensions between neighboring countries, like India-Pakistan, are some of the major factors fueling market growth.
