Double-acting hydraulic cylinders to hold largest share of market between 2017 and 2023
Double-acting hydraulic cylinders are suitable in presses and chippers for opening and closing drawers and for all types of raising and lowering devices. Unlike single-acting, double-acting cylinders have 2 ports i.e., cap end port and rod end port enabling them to operate hydraulically in forward as well as backward direction. Companies involved in the development of double-acting hydraulic cylinders include Hirotaka (Japan), Nordon Cylinders (Australia), SSH Stainless (Denmark), and Helipebs Controls (UK), among others.
Construction industry to hold largest share of hydraulic cylinder market between 2017 and 2023
Excavators, telehandlers, compactors, backhoe loaders, concrete and cement machines, drilling rigs, wheel loaders, loading shovels, dumper trucks, and quick hitches are deployed with heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders. These machines extensively use hydraulic cylinders for a wide range of specific purposes owing to their strength, performance, and reliability. Hydraulic cylinder providers operating in the construction industry include JARP Industries (US), Oscar Equipment (India), AH Garner (UK), and Actuant (US).
