A hydraulic cylinder (also called a linear hydraulic motor) is a mechanical actuator that is used to give a unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. It has many applications, notably in construction equipment (engineering vehicles), manufacturing machinery, and civil engineering.


Welded hydraulic cylinders held the largest market share in 2017. Welded hydraulic cylinders are welded by the metal around the cylinder, making them heavy-duty cylinders. These types of cylinders find applications in areas such as construction equipment, material handling, and forklifts. They are used in heavy-duty equipment such as drillers for oilrigs and huge cranes.


According to a new market report, the global market for hydraulic cylinders is estimated to reach a value of US$ 11,410.4 Mn by 2018 end. With a CAGR of 4.3% from 2018 to 2026, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 16,019.9 Mn by 2026.


The market for hydraulic cylinders is primarily driven by growing infrastructural developments coupled with construction activities across the globe.
