The global IO-link market size is expected to reach $74.08 billion by 2030 from $6.10 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 29.0% from 2021 to 2030. 

IO-link is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows for the bidirectional exchange of data from sensors and devices that support IO-link and are connected to a master. The master works as a gateway for the connection of up to eight IO-link devices including sensors, valves, or binary IO modules. The IO-link master can transmit the data over various networks, fieldbuses, or backplane buses, making the data accessible for immediate action or long-term analysis via an industrial information system. Each IO-link sensor has an IO device description (IODD) file that describes the device and its IO-link capabilities.

Multiple advantages have been associated with IO-link system, such as it requires standardized & reduced wiring, has increased data availability, enables remote configuration & monitoring, and requires simple device replacement. A key benefit of IO-link for many industries is that the IO-link does not require any special or complicated wiring. Rather, the devices can be connected using the same cost-effective standard unshielded 3-wire cables as conventional discrete I/O, which helps keep wiring simple. In addition, IO-link eliminates the need for analog sensors and reduces variety of cord sets required for sensors, which saves inventory costs. Furthermore, IO-link supports a master-slave configuration with passive connection points, which further reduces wiring requirements. 

The growth of the global IO-link market size is anticipated to driven by factors such as the ability to support much higher level Fieldbus and Ethernet communication protocols, surge in demand for Industry 4.0, and rise in government initiatives toward the adoption of industrial automation drive the IO-link market growth. Moreover, with increase in awareness regarding benefits associated with IO-link, the trend of automation is being increasingly implemented since the onset of government’s Make in India campaign. Automation in India plays a major role in improving operational excellence, enhancing return on investment, productivity, and quality improvement, thus gaining popularity in the Indian manufacturing industry. In recent years, IO-link systems have witnessed increased adoption for industrial automation. IO-link is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows bidirectional exchange of data from IO-link supported sensors that are also connected through a master.

However, consumption of compact machines is a major restraint of the global IO-link market growth. In addition, the continuous adoption of next-generation technologies is expected to create opportunities for the IO-link industry. The continuous adoption of next-generation connected technologies such as IoT, industrial robotics, and cloud technologies is one of the prominent factors that is expected to boost the I/O-link market during the forecast period. Moreover, availability of cloud interface in IO-link and release of IO-link safety specifications are expected to offer remunerative opportunities for the growth of the global IO-link market revenue.        

The global IO-link market share is segmented into type, component, application, industry vertical, and region. By type, the market is bifurcated into IO-link wired and IO-link wireless. On the basis of component, it is divided into IO-link master and IO-link devices. The IO-link devices segment is subsegmented into sensor nodes, modules, actuators, RFID read heads, others.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted players operating in the IO-link market. Owing to the complete shutdown of all manufacturing plants, public places, and offices due to lockdown across the world, the demand for IO-link solutions decreased dramatically. Moreover, the demand for electronic devices such as sensors, switches, and actuators has decreased significantly worldwide, owing to lockdown imposed by different governments to contain the spread of the COVID-19, which as impacted the IO-link market growth. 

However, the latter half of the year is expected to witness normalization in the inventory levels and increased demand for IO-link products, owing to stabilization in the automotive vertical. The slowdown in production by OEMs and reduction in demand for IO-link have declined the IO-link market growth. Shortage of components and materials has significantly impacted the global supply chains. In addition, reductions in various capital budgets and delay in planned projects in various industries have hampered the global economy. 

Conversely, roll out of vaccines across the globe and decline cases of COVID-19, especially in North America and Europe are expected to boost the recovery of the IO-link market.
