China Motion Controller Industry Report, 2013-2016

China Motion Controller Industry Report, 2013-2016 is a new market research publication announced by Reportstack. In recent years, China has seen rapid development in machine tool, textile, printing, packaging, electronics, and other industries, which has boosted the demand for motion controllers. In 2006-2012, the demand for motion controllers in China presented steady growth, from 253,600 sets in 2006 to 754,500 sets in 2012. In 2013, the market demand for motion controllers in China still showed a relatively stable growth, at roughly 19%, to about 900,000 sets.

The market size of universal motion controllers, which serve as the control devices of the servo system, is directly influenced by the system. In recent years, the rapid growth of the servo system in China has driven the market size of universal motion controllers to rise from RMB543 million in 2006 to RMB1.946 billion in 2012, with a CAGR of 23.7%. And in 2013, the market size of general motion controllers in China stood at RMB2.34 billion, an increase of some 16.9% on a year-on-year basis.
According to different platforms, general motion controllers can fall into three categories: PLC controller, embedded controller, and PC-based controller card. In 2013, the market share of PLC controllers in China reached 55.68%, followed by embedded controllers.

Currently, some Chinese motion controller manufacturers including Googol Technology, Shanghai Weihong and Leadshine Technology are targeted at medium and low-end market while European and American companies focus mainly on high-end market. Generally, the market share of the Chinese enterprises has exceeded 50%, and Googol Technology ranked first with a 14.2% market share in 2013.

In recent years, with the open system, reasonable performance and lower prices, Pc-based controllers have developed at a fast pace in China, hence a popularity in the Chinese market. As for Pc-based controllers, the Chinese manufacturers have gradually emerged as major players, including Googol Technology, Leadshine Technology, Adtech, Leetro, and Shanghai Weihong, etc. Meanwhile, these players also provide dedicated controllers to some industry segments. However, Googol Technology has dominated the Pc-based controller market, with the market share in 2013 hitting as high as 45.32%.

In the forthcoming years, the growth of demand for motion controllers will still come from such industries as machine tool, printing, packaging, and electronics while the industries like tobacco machinery and medical device will see a steadily growing demand for motion controllers. It is projected that by 2016 the demand for motion controllers in China will be close to 1.9 million sets, and that the market size of general motion controllers will be very likely to reach RMB4 billion or so.
