Global IO-Link Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

IO-Link is a communication interface that allows the exchange of data between devices and controllers. The importance of IO-Link is that it provides a standardized way for devices to communicate, which makes it easier to program and troubleshoot systems.

IO-Link Masters:

IO-Link is a wireless technology that provides high bandwidth and low power consumption. It allows devices to communicate over long distances using electromagnetic waves for data transfer. The technology has been evolving gradually since its introduction in the early 90s, with significant improvements in range and speed along with reduced cost of ownership.

IO-Link Devices:

IO-Link devices are a new generation of optical networking equipment. They provide high bandwidth and low latency connectivity for the next-generation data center interconnections. The primary focus has been on increasing the aggregate network capacity without increasing the aggregated bandwidth, which is IO-Link’s unique capability.

IO-Link devices can be used in various applications such as storage area networks (SAN), local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN).

Application Insights:

The automotive segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growing need for real-time communication between vehicles and road infrastructure, increasing safety concerns, rising demand for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and growing focus on automation are some of the key factors propelling growth. IO-link provides a wireless connection between vehicle¢â‚¬â„¢s ECU (Electronic Control Unit) or brain box and various sensors or actuators located at strategic points along roadsides that enable real-time data transmission to the central control room. This technology has numerous applications in ADAS such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning system, emergency braking assistance system with integrated vision camera, etc.

Regional Analysis:

The market in North America is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to the presence of major players such as Maxim Integrated Products Inc.; Texas Instruments Inc.; and Avago Technologies Limited. The increasing use of wireless technology for data transfer instead of physical contact has led to an increase in demand for IO-Link devices. Moreover, growing adoption by automotive manufacturers due to increased safety and security features is anticipated to drive growth over the next eight years.

Asia Pacific accounted for more than 25% share in 2016 owing its large population base, which demands consumer electronics products with enhanced communication capabilities. Countries such as China and Japan are among those that consume most number of IO-LINK equipped products worldwide; thus making it one of the largest markets globally. The Middle East & Africa region is also expected witness considerable growth over the coming years on account rising investments by governments towards infrastructure development coupled with rapid industrialization across countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the process industries for better communication and data exchange between devices and systems for improved performance, efficiency, and safety.
  • The growing trend of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) which is driving the need for more open, standardized communication protocols to connect different types of machines and devices together.
  • The increasing use of IO-Link in smart factories as part of IIoT deployments to collect data from production lines and sensors for real-time analytics and decision making.
  • The development of new applications for IO-Link such as condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, fault detection & diagnosis etc., that can help improve plant productivity & uptime .
