Global Demand for Encoders Driven by Rapidly Evolving Technological Capabilities in Industrial Production

Future Market Insights (FMI) has recently published a report titled “Encoder Market – Global Industry Analysis 2013-2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018-2027.” An encoder is a kind of sensor for mechanical motion that generates digital signals for motion. As an electro-mechanical device, an encoder is capable to provide information about the position, velocity and direction to the users of motion control systems.

In this report FMI has given brief understanding about: linear and rotary. A linear encoder responds to motion along a path, whereas a rotary encoder responds to rotational motion. An encoder is generally categorized by the means of its output. An incremental encoder generates a train of pulses that can be used to determine position and speed. An absolute encoder generates unique bit configurations to track positions directly. The global encoder market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% during the forecast period. The encoder market was valued at US$ 1,971.6 Mn in 2017, and is projected to grow significantly to reach US$ 6,217.9 Mn by 2027 due to the increasing adoption of industrial automation equipment, digital transformation and the development of sensors in industrial production.

In this report, FMI has segmented the global encoder market by type, by vertical and by region. By type, the encoder market is sub-segmented into linear encoder and rotary encoder. The increasing penetration of IIoT devices in various industry verticals is encouraging industries to integrate a larger number of IIoT devices. Owing to this factor, the rotary encoder sub-segment of the global encoder market is projected to register a 52.5% market share by the end of 2018. In addition, due to the rising adoption of digital technologies and automation systems, the linear encoder sub-segment is also estimated to register a double-digit growth rate during the forecast period.
