Sustainability and Interconnected Machinery Drive Growth in General Motion Control Systems

New ARC Advisory Group research on the General Motion Control (GMC) market projects solid growth as industrial operations seek automation solutions that support energy conservation and sustainability initiatives. GMCs are playing a key role in promoting sustainability and interconnected machinery, two of the most important trends driving growth in the manufacturing industry. A new generation of machinery utilizing GMC systems will be needed to produce semiconductor and electronic devices, electric cars, packaging solutions, and materials that are necessary for energy-efficient solutions and to enable sustainability. With a vast and geographically diversified spectrum of providers and a multitude of potential applications impacting numerous industries, the general motion control industry is still fragmented.

"General motion control systems are used to control the movement of machines and devices in a wide range of industries, including automotive, food and beverage, electronics, and pharmaceutical. By automating tasks and improving efficiency, GMCs can help manufacturers reduce their environmental impact and improve their bottom line. GMC systems are more accurately described as a sophisticated technology integration with application expertise than as a product, with the ultimate goal being the automation of a "complete machine." Motion control systems boost their value proposition by meeting a number of market expectations, such as the increasing need for smart, connected goods built on Industry 4.0 or the Industrial Internet of Things. To complement these functions, new capabilities including security, analytics, safety, simulation, and Ethernet network expansion are being added to GMC systems," according to Siddhartha Maiti, Senior Analyst and key author of ARC's General Motion Control Market Research.
