China Motion Controller Industry Report, 2015-2017
NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Motion controllers are the devices that control all kinds of motor driven actuators to follow the predetermined trajectory, and they find key application in machine tool, textile machinery, plastic machinery, printing machinery, fabric packaging machinery, medical equipment and other industries.
Affected by factors such as industry upgrading and product structure adjustment of equipment manufacturing, Chinese motion controller market hovered at a low level since 2012, and then basically stabilized in 2014 with the market size of RMB7.13 billion which went up 8.5% year on year.
With the promulgation of "Made in China 2025" and other policies, industrial robots and CNC machine tools have become the focus, which means motion controllers will see rapid development as the core components of intelligent equipment. It is expected that Chinese motion control market size will approximate RMB10 billion in 2017.
Motion controllers are divided into general motion controllers and special motion controllers, of which the former can fall into three categories: PCbased controllers, PLCbased controllers, and embedded controllers. Currently, PLCbased controllers prevail as traditional mainstream controllers, and will integrate with the emerging open-style PC-based controller amid competition.
Chinese motion controller market is mainly dominated by worldrenowned giants, while local Chinese players are mostly small and mediumsized firms which target at medium and lowend markets. Among China's domestic enterprises, Leetro, Googol Technology, Leadshine Technology, Weihong Electronic Technology and Adtech give priority to motion controllers and provide customers with system solutions.
