Global Military Actuators Market 2023


Product Code: GA04953I Industry: Region:
Market Overview

The military actuators market is poised for significant growth, with a projected value of USD 1.45 billion by 2029, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2029. Actuators play a crucial role in converting energy into motion and find widespread application in controlling mechanisms and systems. They are powered by electric current, hydraulic fluid pressure, or pneumatic pressure, enabling both linear and rotary motions.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has had a slight impact on the market, it is expected to rebound as the global economy recovers and manufacturing facilities resume production. The increasing military spending, driven by geopolitical tensions and border issues, is a key factor propelling the demand for military actuators. As companies and armed forces collaborate to implement 3D printing in the defense industry, manufacturing technologies are expected to advance, leading to enhanced efficiency in actuator production.

Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific and Middle East and Africa regions are actively focusing on developing local defense manufacturing facilities. This strategic emphasis provides growth opportunities for companies engaged in actuator manufacturing. By establishing these facilities, these regions aim to strengthen their defense capabilities and reduce reliance on imports, thereby driving the demand for military actuators.

OEMs prefer rotary actuators over linear actuators due to advantages like low maintenance, unrestricted travel, and high torque. This drives growth in the rotary actuator market. The military sector is adopting electrical systems and components, including electric vehicles, aircraft, and weapons, leading to growth in this segment.

Countries globally are increasing defense spending and investing in enhancing their capabilities. Tensions with neighboring nations drive funds towards ground vehicles and military systems. Demand for unmanned ground vehicles rises, leading to new models. The land segment of the actuators market is expected to grow more than the sea and air segments due to increased procurement and development of ground vehicles. North America will witness the highest growth, driven by defense investments. The United States, with a substantial defense budget, leads in enhancing capabilities through advanced weapons, armored vehicles, fighter jets, and military equipment.
