The hydraulic cylinder market has been segmented by function, specification, bore size, application, industry, and geography. Government initiatives to revive infrastructural projects across countries have helped the demand for hydraulic cylinders to grow, owing to their increased adoption in construction and material handling industries. Increasing farm mechanization across regions, especially in APAC, and globally increasing mining exploration activities have also promoted the growth of the hydraulic cylinder market.
Based on specification of hydraulic cylinder, welded hydraulic cylinders held the largest share of the hydraulic cylinder market in 2021. The large market size of welded hydraulic cylinders can be attributed to their dominance in mobile hydraulic applications such as construction equipment, material handling equipment, mining equipment, and forklifts. These are mainly preferred where space is a constraint due to their short length and compact design, enabling them to fit better into the tight confines of machinery. They are more durable than tie-rod cylinders and do not suffer from failures due to tie rod stretch at high pressures and long strokes.
Based on function of hydraulic cylinder, the double-acting segment is expected to hold a larger share of the hydraulic cylinder market during the forecast period from 2022 to 2027. Owing to the retraction property of these cylinders, they are used in aerospace, automotive, agriculture, and several other industries. These cylinders have a higher demand in mobile applications such as lifting equipment, earth moving equipment, forklifts, and heavy trucks. Double-acting hydraulic cylinders are suitable in presses and chippers for opening and closing drawers and all types of raising and lowering devices such as excavators and cranes.
