The North America Automotive Actuators Market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period, 2020 - 2025.
Currently, the market for automotive actuators is primarily driven by rising automation and digitalization. Increased demand for fuel efficiency and growing demand for comfort, especially in passenger vehicles, is driving the growth of the automotive actuators market.
Although, in 2019, the growth of passenger and commercial vehicle sales has reduced. But OEM are still making electric actuators as one of the main areas of focus to improve passenger’s safety and comfort. As a part of that effort, electric actuators have also gained significant attention in recent years.
For instance, actuators are used in seats for adjusting lumbar support systems, seat positioning, angles, and for seat track actuators. Several automotive seat adjustment actuators are available in the market, such as geared motors for recliner adjustment, double output shaft for track drives, and linear actuators for height and tilt adjustments. Also, in North America, there is a rise in the sales of SUVs and premium vehicles, resulting in the growth in the seat adjustment actuators segment.
Key Market Trends
Electric Actuators is Driving the Growth of The Market
Many technological advancements have been done in the automotive market field, which has had a direct impact on the automotive actuators, which is witnessing newer challenges and developments. Problems such as improving effectiveness with various functional components in the vehicle ranging from Throttle Actuator, Brake Actuator, Closure Actuator (Window, Door, and Sunroof), and Other Application Types are driving towards the research and development of the market.
The electrical actuators are equipped with most of the newer vehicles. They emit lesser heat, lower noise emission, design, and offer flexible installation options. Additionally, since they run on battery, they can deliver higher torque while they are also compact and lightweight, making it an optimum choice over the regular actuators. Advanced electrical circuiting and also well-designed software make actuators easier to operate. Electric actuators are widely used in window lifts, power tailgate drive, seat adjustment, and sunroof drive.
There is also a growing demand for features offering better comfort to the passengers, which has become a necessary factor for top manufacturers to differentiate to each in the growing actuators industry. As a result, OEMs invest heavily in efforts to enhance the driving and passenger experience by proving the best actuators to its customers.
United States Will Lead the North America Automotive Actuators Market
The United States is expected to witness considerable market growth in the automotive actuators market by the end of 2025. Automotive actuators have evolved significantly from mechanical actuators to an energy-efficient electronic system. Electric actuators usually include an intricate electrical circuit to program when the actuator operates.
The trend in the United States automotive market is towards the technology advancement in the automotive actuators to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the various functional component in the vehicle. Increasing demand for luxury vehicles in SUVs, Sedans, and MUVs is a significant fuel for the growth of the automotive electric actuator market in the United States. The demand for fuel-efficient vehicles in the light of the regulatory standards of CAFÉ, FMVSS, has also driven the focus to replace the hydraulic components by the use of electric actuators.
The actuators would continue to witness growth owing to the latest advancements in the form of mini electric actuators, digital linear actuators, idle speed controllers, which find their extensive application in the advanced driver assistance and automotive sensors systems. The component manufacturers aim to increase profit margin by strategically acquiring other small or regional component manufacturers to gain economies of scale in an otherwise cost pressure environment in manufacturing.
The North America Automotive Actuators Market is fragmented with various startups and regional players such as Robert Bosch GmbH, Nidec Corporation, Denso Corporation, Johnson Electric, and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation. Although to have the edge over its competitors, the major rental companies are making joint-ventures, partnerships to launch newer products.
In 2019, Progressive Automations introduced a wide range of electric linear actuators models. The electric linear actuators have unique capabilities for possible versatile applications. The linear actuator manufacturer offers 12V models covered with an 18-month warranty. Besides, consumers have an opportunity to customize the chosen model for specific demands, including voltage, force, stroke length, dimensions, and feedback control.
