A hydraulic cylinder is an actuation device that converts hydrostatic energy into mechanical energy and produces a unidirectional force. Hydraulic cylinders differ from hydraulic motors, as hydraulic cylinders perform linear or transitory motion and hydraulic motors perform rotational motion.

Hydraulic cylinders are globally quite popular among customers due to their extensive range of applications in various types of industries; however, many customers still choose pneumatic cylinders over hydraulic cylinders, which can pose a challenge to the growth of the global hydraulic cylinders market. Pneumatic cylinders have a simplistic design and are more accurate while generating a precise linear motion.

The availability of pneumatic cylinders in smaller sizes and their rapid movement with higher operation speed have turned many customers in their favour. By enabling integration with electronic monitoring systems, pneumatic cylinders offer versatile advancements in their operation in the field of miniaturization at comparatively lower prices.

Attributing to these advantages of pneumatic cylinders over hydraulic cylinders, majority of customers are making purchase decisions in favour of pneumatic cylinders, which might pose danger to the growth of the global hydraulic cylinders market.
