The pneumatic actuator is powered by compressed gas to drive the valve switch. Because of its low price, high-cost performance, long working time, quick start and other advantages and widely used in various fields to replace the manual valve. For example: power plant, water treatment, equipment, food processing, pulp and paper and so on.
According to Marketsandmarkets.com, the market for pneumatic actuators is expected to reach $6.2 billion by 2025. The compound growth rate from 2019 to 2025 is 5.3%. Industrial Automation, equipment efficiency, productivity and other factors are driving the growth of the global pneumatic actuator market.
With the development of technology and the increasing demand for automation in different fields, this is an opportunity for pneumatic actuators.
According to the type can be divided into: 1/4 Turn Pneumatic Actuator and Linear Pneumatic Actuator. Linear actuators are more often used in automation equipment, and 1/4 turn pneumatic actuators are more often used in engineering or equipment, such as water treatment equipment, filter presses, irrigation, and so on.
In 2016, a quarter of the market was dominated by pneumatic actuators. Its compact design and cost-effective advantages, replacing expensive cut-off control valves and other factors will help the industry grow in the coming years.
During the forecast period, the oil and gas field will continue to lead the growth of pneumatic actuators. This area is attracting investment from all over the world, increasing the demand for pneumatic actuators.
Secondly, the Asian region(India, Pakistan) increased demand for electricity, which also stimulated the Asian region’s demand for pneumatic actuators. At the same time, Latin America’s industrial automation is in the development stage. There will be a high demand for pneumatic actuators, especially for food and packaging and transport applications. For actuator manufacturers and distributors, the Asia region and Latin America will be a great opportunity to strengthen their business in these two regions.
