Segment Analysis

An Encoder is a device that converts an analog signal to a digital signal. It can deliver data immediately after being collected that helps with accuracy, and it enhances the operational speed while easing the process control. The encoder creates either incremental or absolute signals. 

The market is segmented based on type, technology, and end-users.

On the basis of the type, it is bifurcated as linear and rotary. The linear segment is growing as there has been a substantial increase in demand for industrial components. The rotary segment is also steadily increasing due to the growth of its end-use industries. Rotary encoders are mainly used for position sensing across different applications such as consumer electronics, robotics.

By the technology used, it is divided as optical, magnetic, and others.

Based on the end-users, it is segmented as Automotive, Industrial, Consumer Electronics, Food & Beverage, Medical, and Others. The automotive sector is the leading end-user industry for this market. The automotive industry has undergone several advancements related to technology, which have given rise to the smart cars, autonomous cars, etc. the increasing demand for vehicles and the increase in the production of components are driving the encoder market. The different components have a requirement for the different types of encoders.

The increase in the manufacturing facilities for various industries in the APAC region has driven the demand for encoders in the region. The growth of the automotive industry in the APAC region is also driving the market.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increasing adoption of IoT in industries

  • Growth of end-user industries

Key Developments:

  • In January 2019, WorldCast (France) systems launched the first RDS encoder with Audemat Encoder enabling the addition of RDS information directly into a fully digital chain. It enables the broadcaster to move into a fully digital environment because of its spectral purity and quality.

  • In November 2018, Renishaw (UK) launched a Quantic Rotary Encoder system which uses a 40 µm-pitch ring scale called RESM40 which is available in a wide range of sizes. Advanced Diagnostic Tool and combination of wider tolerance increased the ease of the set- up.
