Motion simulation provides various quantitative information regarding the kinematics, such as position, velocity and acceleration along with the dynamics including joint reaction, inertial forces and power requirements of the different components involved in a moving mechanism. Motion simulation is primarily used to provide simulated trainings that helps to eliminate mistakes at the time of doing task on the field. Simulated training was initially used across various defense and automotive applications. Training based on motion simulation technology is a cost-effective way of achieving accuracy by reducing the scope of human error on field and thus increase the productivity. However, with the rapid research and development activities taking place in the field of technology, motion simulation is also advantageously used across various sectors including healthcare, entertainment and mining. The global motion simulation market is anticipated to witness a steady growth during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025 owing to its increasing use in training various operators using a realistic effect.
In order to simplify our research scope and to provide a complete analysis of the global motion simulation market, the market has been segmented into product type, component, end user and degree of freedom. Based on the mode of operation, different types motion simulation products available in the market includes hydraulic and actuator. Moreover, on the basis of component, the market can been bifurcated into hardware and software. In addition, motion simulator also finds its application across various end user segments including defense, automotive, entertainment, healthcare and mining. Again, based on degree of freedom, the global motion simulation market can be further classified into two degree of freedom, three degree of freedom and six degree of freedom. Furthermore, comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the current market condition along with future expected growing trend of all the above mentioned segments across different regions including Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Middle-East and Africa (MEA) and Latin America is also provided in this report.
Increasing adoption of simulation based training program in various private and government aviation sector across different parts of the world is one of the primary factor predicted to trigger the market growth of motion simulation during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. In addition, rising demand for simulation and modeling technologies arising from various automotive sector, further expected to accelerate the demand of motion simulation in the coming years. Moreover, surge in demand of simulation training for improving patient safety especially in anesthesiology is also predicted to create a better opportunity for the demand of motion simulation in the near future.
However, lack of proper simulator feasibility and fidelity is one of the key factor anticipated to limit the commercial success of motion simulation during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.
Among the different end user segments, the defense sector is identified as the most attractive market in 2016 owing to increasing focus on implementing training program based on military and aircraft vehicle simulation technology in order to ensure security and safety of soldiers. In addition, application of motion simulation in entertainment industry especially in gaming sector is also predicted to witness a promising growth in the coming years.
Geographically, North America held the largest market share in the global motion simulation market in 2016 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The motion simulation market in North America is predicted to be majorly driven by the U.S owing to increasing investment in research and development activities across the aerospace and defense sectors for training purposes. On the flip side, Asia Pacific region is anticipated to experience the most promising growth in the coming years.
