Technavio’s analysts categorize the global linear motion systems market
into three major segments by the application. They are:

  • Material handling
  • Machine tools
  • Robotics

Global linear motion systems market in material handling

Material handling applications include palletizing, packaging, pick and
place, sorting, and transportation of goods and finished products in any
industry. Linear motion systems help to ensure that the processes are
smooth and fast without potential loss/wastage at any point in the

According to Bharath Kanniappan, a lead robotics
research analyst from Technavio, “Material needs to be worked on the
shop floor in processing stations like milling, grinding, drilling, and
then transported to the next station. The deployment of linear motion
systems helps industries to achieve benefits like high productivity,
high precision, reduction in wear and tear and maintenance requirements,
and fewer requirements for mechanical transmission elements

Global linear motion systems market in machine tools

The machine tools segment will be the next major shareholder in the
overall market revenue due to requirements of high accuracy and
precision control offered by linear motion systems. A linear guideway is
one of the crucial elements of a machine tool as it ensures that the
operating element of cutting or machine tool is moving along the
predetermined path.

The linear motion systems generate a smooth and linear motion in
machine tools and as a result help in achieving higher precision and
accuracy in the industry. The coefficient of friction on a linear
guideway is only 1/50 compared with a traditional slide
,” says

Global linear motion systems market in robotics

Robotics is rapidly developing in the field of industrial automation
that can assist businesses in scaling up their level of production and
improving the overall product quality. Linear motion systems are
installed within the robots for smooth and precise robotic movements in

These allow performing several applications like pick and place,
handling, and storage of materials or complex industrial application.
Linear motion systems are installed within almost every robotic work
