Technavio’s industrial automation research analysts categorize the global multi-axis motion controller market into the following segments by end-user. They are:

  • Machine tools
  • Semiconductor
  • Packaging and labeling
  • Material handling
  • Others

The top three end-user segments for the global multi-axis motion controller market are discussed below:

Machine tools

Multi-axis motion controllers used in the machine tools segment include hardware products for controlling position and movement of complex functions. The demand for machine tool applications in the manufacturing industries is stimulated by the quality of machines and equipment used in key applications such as metal forming and metal cutting applications where multi-axis motion controllers are largely implemented.

According to Raghav Bharadwaj Shivaswamy, a lead automation research analyst from Technavio, “The changeover of industrial machines to electrical or electromechanically operated has increased the demand for multi-axis motion controller products in metal applications, which will drive the growth of the machine tools segment. The increasing use of multi-axis motion controllers for laser cutting machining and electric discharge machining in the industry will also provide a continuous market growth.


The semiconductor segment is likely to be the next major shareholder in the global multi-axis motion controller market due to the need for high accuracy and precision control, which are offered by multi-axis motion controllers. Advanced positioning and synchronization control of multiple axes is highly required in the semiconductor segment. Therefore, multi-axis motion controllers are utilized in various applications of the segment.

The semiconductor manufacturing and testing application requires multi-axis motion controllers as it helps in achieving higher precision and accuracy in the industry. The demand for high precision work in the semiconductor segment has enhanced the scope of revenue generation for multi-axis motion controller vendors in the market,” says Raghav.

Packaging and labeling

Packaging and labeling machines require powerful and homogeneous multi-axis motion controllers that can control coordinated movements along numerous axes.

The demand for multi-axis motion controllers will grow in the packaging and labeling segment as automation is increasing in developing countries, supporting the market growth. The key market region of the packaging and labeling sector is in the US and China.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • ABB
  • Bosch Rexroth
  • Galil
  • Mitsubishi Electric
