The Linear Electric Motors Market size is projected to reach USD 1.2 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2021 to 2028. The global linear electric motors market size was valued at USD 769 million in 2018 and is expected to witness growth during the forecast period owing to increasing demand for linear electric motors in various applications such as punch press, die casting machine, electromagnetic hammer, and drying machines among others.
The market for linear electric motors has been developing steadily with some fluctuations in recent years owing to a number of factors such as changes in regulation and governmental policy, technological developments, and competitive dynamics. The demand for linear electric motors is driven mainly by their use in office equipment where they are used for printing machines, photocopiers, scanners, and other related equipment which have high-performance requirements on speed and accuracy of operation.
Linear Electric Motors are a type of electromagnetic device that converts electrical energy into mechanical motion. Linear electric motors usually consist of an arrangement of magnets (or electromagnets) mounted on the surface or inside a long, narrow metal tube with wire coils wound around it. As current flows through the coils they produce magnetic fields and these interact with complementary magnetized regions in the linear motor to push or pull its surfaces in one direction along their length, producing motion linearly between two endpoints which rely on only friction for stops.
Linear electric motors can be used in a wide range of applications but are most commonly found in small devices such as the propellant actuator unit (PAU) for ejecting disc drives from laptop computers. They are also employed to spin computer disk platters and drive belt-driven equipment, including printing presses. Worldwide demand for linear electric motors has increased significantly due to growing industrialization and modernization across different regions globally.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Cylindrical Type, U-shaped Slot Type, and Flat Plate Type. The cylindrical type dominated the global market in 2018 with a share of more than 50%.
Linear motors are categorized by the type of magnetic field, and electric motor systems with cylindrical-type magnets have been traditionally used in applications including punch press machines. Linear electric motors that use a helical rotor winding typically require an air gap between stator and rotor; this design may be more difficult to manufacture but is able to operate without any lubrication because there is no contact between components.
The U-shaped Slot Type Linear Electric Motors are the smallest type of linear electric motors. They typically have a form factor comparable to that of an axial lead-acid battery and weigh about as much. The stator is constructed from one or more thin metal sheets, which are meshed together with poles cut out on either side for coils in each slot formed by two commutator segments. These types of motors excel at high speeds up to 150,000 rpm (150KHz) because there is no overlap between slots where brushes would need to be located - these reduced number of moving parts leads to higher reliability and longer service life than any other type of motor. One downside is they produce less torque per size unit compared to cylindrical type.
Flat Plate Type motors are the most popular type of linear electric motor used in production lines. Compared to other types, these motors have better torque and higher weight load capacity for their size. These qualities make them ideal for use in fixtures where a lot of heavy-duty work is needed such as punching or die casting machines.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into punch press, die casting machine, electromagnetic hammer, drying machine, and office equipment. The application of linear electric motors in the drying process is a key factor driving this market.
The linear electric motors in drying machines are predominantly of Flat Plate Type. These motors use a flat disk as the rotor which is set within an open-sided shell to allow airflow past it more easily, resulting in higher torque and lower power consumption. The motor can be used for both low and high-temperature applications (15 - 65°C). Drying machine manufacturers usually offer different models with varying stroke lengths so that they can be adapted to customer needs better.
Linear Electric Motors have been found to work well on office equipment such as moving tables or feeding paper into photocopying machines due to their durability, reliability, lightweight design, and efficiency over the rotary type.
Devices that are not mentioned in the other two categories can also utilize linear electric motors. This includes blowers and vacuum cleaners, as well as agricultural equipment such as weed-eaters or hedge cutters. Linear Electric Motors work best for low torque devices with a high-speed output requirement, especially if they need to be lightweight and small enough to fit into tight spaces like vacuum cleaner components. For example, cordless power tools often use because their lightweight means that you can carry more of them at once than heavier rotary-type motors would allow. They're also preferable since there's less strain on your wrists while holding it due to its even balance when held vertically rather than horizontally like some push lawnmowers.
On the basis of region, the market is segmented into four regions, namely North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. The Americas region dominates the global linear motors market in terms of revenue share and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to increasing demand for these products due to their use as an alternative power source with lower energy consumption rates than conventional systems. Linear Electric Motors are used extensively across various industry verticals such as food processing machinery (for example blowers and vacuum cleaners), agricultural equipment (weed-eaters or hedge cutters).
