Hydraulic cylinders are also called hydraulic pumps or liner hydraulic motors. These cylinders are used in many fields such as civil engineering, construction machinery, and manufacturing machinery. Moreover, these cylinders help in transferring applications ranging from aviation to construction equipment. Hydraulic cylinders are formed by assembling various components such as piston, head & caps, cylinder, and barrel. These cylinders are available in two forms that are single acting and double acting. Furthermore, hydraulic cylinders are available in various functions and configuration, as each of them are suited for particular applications. These cylinders are selectively used for resisting linear motion under heavy loads. Hence, hydraulic cylinders are used in various industries.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Vidya Jadhav, “The global hydraulic cylinder market is anticipated to grow at a substantial pace during forecast period, from 2020 to 2027 due to rapid development in infrastructure and industrialization in developing nations. Moreover, growing demand for lifting equipment in shipping industry is expected to fuel the hydraulic cylinder market.”

Key Takeaways from the Study

  • The US-based KYB Americas Corporation, Caterpillar, and PARKER HANNIFIN CORP, and Ireland-based company Eaton and held approximately one fifth share of the global hydraulic cylinder market in 2019.
  • The welded hydraulic cylinder segment is expected to grow at a significant pace during the forecasted due to the rise in the deployment of industrial equipment at various project sites.
  • The use of hydraulic cylinder is projected to grow in agricultural equipment due to growth in the agriculture-based economies of Asia Pacific such as Myanmar, Nepal, and India. Moreover, the production of sugarcane, cotton, rice, and wheat, thus driving the demand for agricultural equipment.
  • The adoption of hydraulic cylinders is growing at a significant pace in Canada, due to growing investment in the construction industry and government efforts to strengthen defense and aerospace industries.
