Multi-axis Controllers Acquire Dominant Spot
Based on type of axis, the global motion controller market has been segmented into multi axis, and single motion controller. Of these, the segment of multi axis motion controllers garnered the maximum revenue and volume in 2018, and is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR over the report’s forecast period as well. The segment of single axis motion controller is anticipated to witness sluggish growth during the forecast period owing to requirement of additional or external power source of these devices. On the contrary, the multi axis motion controllers offer exceptionally low power consumption featured through the use of centralized power units.
PLC-based Motion Controllers Hold Significant Share in Global Revenue
Based on product type, the global motion controller market is segmented into PLC-based, standalone motion controllers, and PC based motion controllers. Among the product type, the PLC-based motion controllers contributed largest market share towards the global market in terms of volume in 2018. However, the PC based motion controllers dominated the global market in terms revenue owing to high price of these controllers as compared to other product types. Furthermore, PLC based motion controllers are anticipated to expand at the most promising CAGR of 7.9% in terms of revenue during the forecast period.
