COVID-19 Scenario Analysis: 

  • The global optical encoder market size has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. 
  • The global factories have struggled to manufacture optical encoder in this COVID-19 pandemic and have also struggled in developing or improving the current optical encoder due to lack of workforce.
  • The supply chain has been disrupted and market will be less impacted compared to many other markets because even in this COVID-19 situation optical encoders are used in various medical applications.
  • So, during the meantime, this would be an opportunity for the companies to research and improve their product, develop ways to increase production of optical encoders.

Top impacting factors: Optical Encoder Market Trends, Scenario Analysis, Drivers and Impact Analysis

The major drivers for the growth of the market are increase in requirement for upgraded automation, surge in adoption of cutting edge motion control systems, and rise in interests for high quality in surface mount technology (SMT) placement forms. But, complex construction of encoders and delicate parts involved in optical encoders may hinder the market growth. Moreover, rise in demand from medical diagnostics, robotics, elevators, and machine controls are expected to further boost the market growth.

New product launches to flourish the optical encoder market

The launch of new products that contain improved capabilities have been launched by leading market players. They have taken necessary steps to improve accuracy of devices and overall functionality as well. New generation position encoders for harsh environments were launched by Renishaw recently. They are essential components in motion control systems. These are high performance position optical encoders which have increased features without increased robustness. They can be installed on OEM systems, have high tolerances to environmental contamination and are available at lower cost and thus this encoder flourished the optical encoder market growth.

Surge in usage in Healthcare industry

The surgeon moves the master manipulator with encoders and servos to command the robot arm performing surgery. High resolution rotary optical encoders are thus preferred for the velocity and position sensing in better controlling and detecting fine movements in the joints. These encoders ensure higher accuracy, precision, large through diameters on the rotary scale, durability and safety of operation. Thus, for safe and effective control of robotic systems, encoder feedbacks are extremely important. Moreover, due to the advancements in robotic surgery and evolving encoders, there is surge in the usage of optical encoders in the healthcare industry.
