Market Overview:

The global motor encoder market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for industrial robots, machine tools, and other applications across different regions. Additionally, factors such as technological advancements and miniaturization are also contributing to the growth of this market. Based on type, incremental motor encoders are expected to hold a larger share of the global motor encoder market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their low cost and easy installation as compared with absolute motor encoders.

Global Motor Encoder Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A motor encoder is a device that converts the angular position or motion of a shaft or axle to an electrical signal. The output may be in the form of an analog voltage, digital pulse train, or serial bit stream. Motor encoders are used in a wide variety of applications such as robotics, CNC machines, and automatic door openers.

Incremental Motor Encoder:

Incremental Motor Encoder is a device that counts the number of times a particular movement occurs in an electric motor. It does this by measuring the position of various parts of the rotor at different points in time. The result is an accurate and continuous record of motor speed and position which can be used to determine if there has been any slippage or loss of accuracy over time.

Absolute Motor Encoder:

Absolute Motor Encoder is a device that generates an accurate and precise digital stream of data which can be used to measure the speed of a motor. It is widely used in applications such as robotics, machine vision systems, industrial control systems, and medical devices. Absolute Motor Encoder has two major functions including pulse width modulation (PWM) function and position sensing function.

Application Insights:

The machine tools segment dominated the global motor encoder market in 2017 and is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for precision-engineered products across multiple industries, including automotive, construction, aerospace & defense and medical equipment.

Increasing demand for high-precision solutions in industrial applications has resulted in an increased focus on innovation by industry players such as Honeywell International Inc., Siemens PLM Software America Inc., Aethlon Medical Inc., and others. For instance, Aethlon Medical developed a new product named ¢â‚¬Å“Astro Encoder¢â‚¬ that provides highly accurate measurement solutions for medical devices & systems using optical technology. Such initiatives are expected to drive the market over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing strong economic growth on account of rising manufacturing activities across various industries. This, in turn, has led to an increase in investments for automation technologies across several Asian countries such as China and Japan. Moreover, increasing demand for consumer electronics products such as smartphones and laptops is also driving the regional motor Encoder Market growth.

The Asia Pacific market was followed by Europe with a revenue share of more than 25% in 2017 owing to high product adoption rates especially among machine tool manufacturers due to presence of major companies like MTC Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co., Daimler AG, ZF Friedrichshafen AG & Co., HEG Steyr-Daimler-Puch AISBL are some other factors that contributed towards Europe’s large share compared with other regions in 2017.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for electric vehicles
  • Growing trend of automation in manufacturing sector
  • Rising adoption of industrial robots
  • Proliferation of smart factories and IIoT
  • Emergence of new applications
