Optical Encoder Market: Adoption of Digital Output Optical Encoders Growing

Aug 03, 2016, 10:30 ET from Future Market Insights

Future Market Insights, August 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Rising demand for advanced automation systems will continue to positively impact global optical encoder market revenues. The global market, valued at US$ 1,357.4 Mn in 2015, is expected to register a y-o-y growth rate of 11.3 % and attain a market value worth US$ 1,464.5 Mn in 2016. Growing demand for high-quality assurance in surface mount technology (SMT) placement processes and increasing acceptance of advanced motion control systems will continue to drive the growth of the market. 

The considerable rise in the implementation of advanced absolute encoders by the manufacturers of SMT placement equipment is providing favourable growth opportunities to manufacturers. Prominent industrial applications of optical encoders in elevators, medical diagnostics, robotics, and machine controls are serving as the primary factors leading to the expansion of the global optical encoders market. However, limitations related to complexity and delicate parts, and decreasing prices due to OEM pressures in developed economies are some of the key challenges restraining adoption of optical encoders.

On the basis of the output signal format, the global optical encoder market will witness a significant rise in the volumes of digital output optical encoders as they are expected to replace the existing analog optical encoders. In 2016, the digital output optical encoders segment is projected to reach 1,194.6 Mn in revenues.

By configuration, the shafted-type optical encoders will continue to gain traction, and further its market share to 33% in 2016. Demand for hollow shaft type optical encoders, as well as absolute single turn and multi-turn encoders is also expected to witness steady growth in 2016 and beyond.

The use of optical encoders in healthcare equipment is expected to dominate the application-based segment of the global optical encoders market. The healthcare segment is expected to generate revenues of US$ 243.3 Mn by 2016-end. Application of optical encoders in consumer electronics, robotic and assembly equipment, as well as semiconductor manufacturing equipment is likely to augment the market size of the global optical encoders market.
