A linear motor is generates motion in a straight line rather than rotational motion, which is typical of traditional rotary motors. Linear motors consist of a stationary primary part, known as a stator, and a moving secondary part, known as a mover or slider. The stator contains a series of coils, and the mover contains a series of magnets. When electrical current flows through the coils, it generates a magnetic field that interacts with the magnets on the mover, resulting in linear motion. Linear motors offer several advantages over traditional rotary motors, such as higher acceleration rates, faster speeds, and greater precision. They are commonly used in various applications, including manufacturing automation, semiconductor manufacturing, medical equipment, and transportation systems. The increasing demand for automation across various industries has led to the growing popularity of linear motors, and they are expected to witness significant growth in the coming years.

Furthermore, key players are driving market growth by advancing their development efforts. For instance, in November 2020, Rockwell Automation launched the MagneMover LITE, a new linear motor system designed for high-speed, high-precision material handling applications. The system uses a series of independently controlled movers that ride on a flat magnetic track.
