Hydraulic Cylinder Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2024

Category : Construction and Manufacturing | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC419


A hydraulic cylinder can be used to give a unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. It is also known as linear hydraulic motor which is a type of mechanical actuator. It has many fields of use, mainly in manufacturing machinery, construction machinery (engineering trams), and civil engineering. Linear hydraulic motor is another term for hydraulic cylinder. Pressurized hydraulic fluid gives power to hydraulic cylinders that is mainly oil. The hydraulic cylinder has a cylindrical barrel in which a piston rod has a piston connected to it and moves back and forth continuously. The barrel is closed from one end by the cylindrical head (also known as the gland) and on the other end by the cylinder bottom (also known as the cap). The piston has seals and rings which are sliding. The inside of the cylinder is divided by the piston into two chambers - the piston rod side chamber and the bottom chamber.

Market Dynamics

The demand for hydraulic cylinders is mainly lead its growing number of applications in various areas including agriculture, manufacturing, mining, construction, defense and aerospace. Moreover, rise in demand from OEMs is due to increasing advancements in the level of industrial processes and leading global trade adds up towards the growth of hydraulic cylinder market. The market is growing rapidly and it is mainly lead by the growing economies. There has been a significant increase in the economic condition of major Asian countries such as China and India after-global economic recession. This has cleared the path for the rise of low-scale companies involved in the work of manufacturing and construction. Various manufacturing companies in the Americas and EMEA region are outsourcing their manufacturing demands to various other economies such as India and China, in order to take advantage of less expensive labor costs. Also, most companies have started their manufacturing operations in these economies to benefit maximum from the low-cost manufacturing capabilities and the availability of skilled labor. This step helps companies to enhance their own market presence. Therefore, the market is facing enhancement in the investments among both domestic and international vendors. European and North American market have attained a saturation level. No matter, the stable markets have given a vast chance to the emerging markets, by the action of outsourcing their manufacturing needs to the other emerging small markets. These days, material handling machines such as level luffing cranes, stackers and e-overhead travelling cranes are largely used by industries such as beverages and foods, energy and power, oil refineries and retail excluding engineering  and construction domain.
