Global Encoder Market to Reach US$ 5.2 Billion by 2032, Fueled by Increasing Automation across Various Industrial Verticals

August 22, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Encoder Market Report by Type (Rotary Encoder, Linear Encoder), Technology (Optical, Magnetic, Photoelectric, and Others), Signal Type (Absolute Encoders, Incremental Encoders), Industry Vertical (Automotive, Electronics, Printing Machinery, Textile, Aerospace, Pharmaceuticals, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global encoder market size reached US$ 2.7 Billion in 2023. An encoder is an electromechanical feedback device used to convert motion into an electrical signal for position, speed, count, or direction determination. It is marketed in various types, such as linear, rotary, and angle encoders, employing mechanical, optical, capacitive, and magnetic technologies. It consists of a light source, sensors, variable resistors, rotating disks, an electric circuit, and a signal processor. An encoder is widely employed in robotics, automation, printing, packaging, machine tools, elevators, vehicles, telescopes, and more. It is cost-effective, compact, durable, shock-resistant, and reliable. Apart from this, it can seamlessly integrate with existing technologies and offer high-resolution measurements. As a result, an encoder is extensively utilized across industries such as automotive, aerospace, healthcare, consumer electronics, power generation, food and beverage (F&B), and textiles.

Global Encoder Market Trends:

The surging demand for high-end automation across various industries to improve performance and overall equipment effectiveness, reduce costs, and increase productivity represents one of the prime factors fueling the global encoder market. Besides this, the surging product utilization in tasks such as motor speed control and guiding robotic arms in numerous operations, including welding, assembly, material handling, and grinding, is creating a favorable outlook for market expansion. Moreover, the bolstering growth of the automotive industry, wherein encoders are used to provide precise control over the drive motor system and steering assembly, is contributing to the market growth. In line with this, the expanding adoption of encoders in electric, hybrid, and autonomous vehicles to measure wheel position and provide feedback for the control system is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Additionally, the incorporation of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and embedded microprocessors in encoders to enhance their signal processing capabilities, expand functionality, increase sensitivity, and allow remote analysis, diagnostic capabilities, and condition monitoring, is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the rising product employment across the thriving healthcare industry for robotic surgery, ophthalmic laser treatment, radiation therapy, artificial respiration, orthopedic rehabilitation, and laboratory analysis is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 5.2 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 7.56% during 2024-2032.
