Servo Motors Drives Market Rising Demand and Future Scope till by 2030

Theglobal servo motors drive market size is expected to grow from USD 13.6 billion in 2020 to USD 18.6 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2027. A servo motor is a self-contained electrical device that provides intricate position control to rotate the parts of a machine. It has a regular motor attached to a sensor for positional feedback. The servo motor is a closed-loop mechanism incorporating positional feedback to control rotational or linear speed and position. Servo motors and drives are critical parts of a machine and are used in many applications such as industrial robots, automation, CNC machinery, and others.

A servo driver also called an amplifier, can receive control signals from all controllers and amplify them to give the motor a certain amount of voltage and current. Servo drives are generally used in robotics, automation, CNC machining, and manufacturing semiconductors. Servo motors and drives can be segmented into AC motor and drive and DC motor and drive. Generally, servo motors are rotary or linear and are made of either stainless steel or non-stainless steel. As these motors have various components, they can be segmented based on sales channels as direct and indirect. They can also be segmented based on end-users, OEM, and system integrators.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Servo Motors Drives

In H1 2020, COVID-19 disrupted industrial productions globally, including the steel market. As steel is one of the primary raw materials used in the servo motors and drives market, fluctuation in the demand and production of steel directly impacted the functioning of the servo motors market. China is one of the major steel producers and produces half of the world’s steel every year. Due to factory closures and government restrictions on trade, disruption in steel production affected the steel market, which affected its end-user industries and applications. Thus, fluctuation in steel prices and the overall decline in production has created major challenges for vendors in the servo motors and drive the market to procure raw materials.

Stainless steel markets are anticipated to remain optimistic in the short term during the forecast period, supported by the opening of many factories and end-user industries. Owing to the relaxation of lockdown restrictions in several countries globally, the steel market will witness increased demand. However, market vendors and suppliers are skeptical about the market demand for steel in the short term due to COVIDD-19. In recent months, the rise in nickel prices increased the input expenditure for many stainless-steel manufacturers. Uncertainties in nickel prices have led to different stainless-steel pricing trends across other geographical regions.

The AC motors segment is projected to account for the largest market share by servo motor

The servo motor market can be categorized into AC and DC motors. AC motors are expected to witness higher demand due to their ability to operate in alternating current with higher pickup loads, higher repetitions, and fast manufacturing skills. Advancements in microprocessor technology and the development of permanent magnets for AC servo motors are driving the growth of the servo motors market. Cost-effective solutions for manufacturing permanent magnets for AC servo motors are increasing. Thus, AC servo motors and AC servo control systems are used for automation in various industrial segments. An AC servo motor is different from a DC servo motor regarding the voltage and current produced. AC servo motors are used in a wide range of industrial applications.

AC servo drive has an electronic amplifier/servo drive that controls the AC servo motor. AC Servo Motor is an electric motor with a feedback device encoder. These motors receive commands or signals through servo drives. They adjust the speed and precision/accuracy of a particular machine used in manufacturing and have a closed-loop system. There are two types of AC servo motors – synchronous servo motors and asynchronous servo motors.
