Global Linear Transfer Automation Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Linear transfer automation is a type of robotics system in which the robots move along straight lines. This type of system is often used for transferring or moving parts and products from one station to another. The importance of linear transfer automation lies in its ability to quickly and efficiently move products between work stations, thus increasing production speeds.

Hydraulic Linear Transfer Systems:

Linear transfer automation is a technique of moving materials from one place to another with the help of automated mechanisms. The material handling process can be divided into two parts, namely storage and transportation. In storage part, the material is placed in an open space on a platform or on a shelf; in transportation part, the material is moved from one place to another using automated mechanisms such as robotic arms or slideshows.

The major applications of LTP systems are found in packaging.

Electric Linear Transfer Systems:

Electric linear transfer systems and it's usage in Linear Transfer Automation market is a device that can move objects at high speed and in large quantities. It is used to automate the movement of materials from one place to another with the help of guided vehicles. The system consists of guidewires, trolleys, tracks, wheels or rollers on which material are mounted along with power supply cables for electric current distribution.

Application Insights:

The automotive segment is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing application segment over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for LLA solutions in order to reduce floor space, enhance production efficiency and improve overall plant workflow. The electronics industry has also been increasingly adopting LLA systems due to high automation requirements and rising need for reduction of manufacturing costs.

The pharmaceutical sector was one of the early adopters of LTA technology with an increasing number of drug manufacturers globally opting for such systems owing to their benefits including reduced floor space requirement, increased flexibility in production lines along with ease of maintenance and operation. Food & beverage followed soon after pharmaceuticals adopting these systems due to growing demand from breweries & wineries processing large amounts daily along with consumer preference towards speedier product delivery at doorsteps across various regions worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

The Asia Pacific regional market accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region’s growth can be attributed to rising investments in automation across various industries, particularly in China and India. In 2016, China invested nearly USD X billion on industrial automation while India planned to invest USD X billion by 2020 on similar projects. These investments are anticipated to drive the demand for LTA systems across several sectors including food & beverage, automotive, electronics assembly line, etc., thereby boosting regional market growth during the forecast period.

In addition of this factor; increasing foreign direct investment (FDI) along with favorable government policies aimed at promoting manufacturing activities is also expected to boost industry expansion over the coming years which will result into an increased demand for global LTA system market share by 2030 as well as current year owing to their advantages such as high production output per hour.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for automation in manufacturing sector to improve efficiency and productivity
  • Rising labor costs and the need for reducing human intervention in manufacturing processes
  • Growing trend of Industry 4.0 and increasing adoption of robotics across different industries
  • Proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning which is aiding linear transfer automation market growth
  • Increasing research & development investments by leading players to develop innovative products
