Global shipments for motion control products fell by five per cent in 2013, according to new statistics released by the Motion Control Association (MCA), the industry’s trade group.

“Despite the contraction in global motion control shipments last year, we are optimistic moving into 2014,” said Dana Whalls, vice-president of MCA. “The North American economy, which is a strong driver of MCA statistics, is forecasted to be strong to start the year, and we’re anticipating motion control shipments to follow.”

“Despite the overall contraction, the motion controllers category had a very strong year in 2013,” said Alex Shikany, MCA director of market analysis. “We saw shipments of motion controllers soar 22 per cent in 2013, while all other categories declined.”

MCA summarizes market results in quarterly tracking reports and trend analysis reports.
