Governments worldwide are actively promoting industrial development to enhance national progress and infrastructure. As part of this initiative, various countries are embracing automation and communication technologies to modernize their enterprises. Governments are particularly emphasizing advancements in both process and discrete industries. For instance, Singapore's government has collaborated with industry associations like the Singapore Food Manufacturing Association (SFMA) & Food Innovation Resource Centre to implement cutting-edge automation solutions within the food and beverage sector.

Incorporating linear actuators into existing systems or retrofitting them into older equipment often poses substantial challenges. These difficulties stem from differences in actuator specifications, mechanical compatibility issues, and varying control interface requirements. Retrofitting linear actuators may require additional modifications or adjustments to the current infrastructure, due to increased costs and added complexity. These integration hurdles have the potential to dissuade potential end-users from adopting linear actuators, especially in industries where retrofitting is a common method for automation purposes.

Linear actuators are utilized in various electric vehicle components such as seats, motorized windows, and sunroofs. In electric vehicles, these actuators efficiently convert electrical energy into linear motion, which is crucial for energy-efficient operation. They serve a variety of functions in electric vehicles, including controlling window and sunroof movements and adjusting seat positions. As the adoption of electric vehicles increases, the demand for linear actuators is expected to grow accordingly. Additionally, technological advancements contribute to improving the efficiency, precision, and durability of linear actuators.
