The dynamic and differentiated growth in the use of servo drives at machines by 2020

Machine-builders expect their machine production to grow by 5.5% per year until 2020. The number of electronic drive components at these machines is expected to increase even more, namely by 6.3% per year until 2020. The number of servo drives at the machines is expected to grow by 8.2% per year by 2020.

Quest TechnoMarketing’s market research has identified three growth trends. Servo use will remain a dynamic growth market until 2020, growing faster than all of electronic drives and faster than machine production. This primarily involves servos at more and more machines for new applications, i.e. extensive growth. On the secondary side, the number of servo drives per machine will also increase to 7.6 servos per machine on average. This intensive growth is associated with the substitution of current solutions.

These growth decisions are mainly made by experienced servo users among machine builders. This is because the number of first-time users of servos among machine builders will only increase by 0.9% per year.


The growth in the use of servo drives in the sectors of machinery industry is very different. Quest TechnoMarketing investigated the ten automation-relevant sectors of the German machinery industry with companies with 100 and more employees. The growth rate of the servo use ranges from 3% to 16% per year until 2020, and the number of servos per machine covers a range of 2 to 19 servos per machine on average. After all, there are industries in which only 1% of the total servo potential will be used and those that absorb 20% of the servo potential.

These indicators support the servo suppliers in targeted market processing and product development. The report in the Quest Trend Magazine about this study is available on http://www.quest-trendmagazine.com/en/machinery-industry/automation/drive-technology/use-of-servo-drives-in-machinery-industry.html

The market study containing 200-pages covers the entire application structure of electronic drives at machines, identifies the substitution processes within electronic drive technology at machines, and draws the technological application profile of servo drives with regard to positioning, integrated safety engineering, field buses, distribution of servo controllers and industrial 4.0-compatible servo drives. The market study highlights the interaction of machine control and servo drive and the distribution of control intelligence at machines with servos. Finally, the Quest study typifies the supplier policy of machine-builders in regard to machine automation with a focus on servo use.

All these future-oriented details about the use of servo drives to 2020 ensure a successful product portfolio and service profile of the drive suppliers and a targeted and effective market processing.
