The Global Digital Encoders Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period (2016-2028) and reach USD X, XXX million by 2028 from an estimated value of USD 2,537 million in 2016. The market has been segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. The magnetic encoder was the most widely used type accounting for over 40% share in 2016.
A digital encoder is a device that converts analog signals to corresponding digital forms and vice versa. It can also convert the unlimited number of input channels into multiple output channels with any given channel count, resolution, accuracy, or speed. Digital encoding devices are used in machine tools for closed-loop position control applications such as surface grinding machines (SG). The features of a digital encoder include high accuracy, precision, and resolution. They are compact in size and have the ability to operate in harsh environmental conditions. Digital encoders also offer benefits such as low cost of ownership, easy installation and maintenance, and flexibility.
On the basis of Type, the global digital encoders market is segmented into Optical Type and Magnetic Type.
An optical encoder is a device that measures and provides data on the angular displacement of an object. It consists of two parts: One is the measurement component; the other one is the output signal processing part. An optical type digital encoder typically contains a light source, such as an LED, and a photosensor, which is usually a photodiode. The light from the LED shines on the target code wheel or disk and the sensor detects the reflected light. As the target code wheel or disk turns, different parts of it pass in front of the light beam. The encoder is able to measure the time interval between transmitted and reflected pulses of light, i.e., it can tell how far the code wheel or disk has rotated by counting the number of high-to-low (or low-to-high) transitions in this signal. Optical digital encoders are advantageous because they typically have no moving parts and are therefore reliable, quiet, and can operate at high speeds.
The Magnetic digital encoders are the ones that use the magnetic field to detect the position of a target. The sensor head is mounted on a carriage, and as this moves past one or more magnets, it induces a current in a sensing coil which can be converted into an electrical signal. This signal can then be processed to determine the position of the carriage. A digital encoder using a magnetic sensor works by creating a rotating field that is detected by the sensor. The output of the sensor is then used to track rotation and position. This type of digital encoder is less expensive than an optical encoder, but it can be prone to noise interference. Magnetic type digital encoders are used in a wide variety of applications, including healthcare devices, machine tools, and consumer electronics assembly equipment. They are also found in other industries such as automotive and aerospace.
On the basis of Application, the global digital encoders market is segmented into Healthcare, Machine Tool, Consumer Electronics, Assembly Equipment, and Others.
The healthcare industry is one of the most important sectors that use digital encoders. Digital encoders are replacing mechanical sensors in many areas of healthcare including patient monitoring, medical imaging, and surgical robotics. The main application areas for these devices in this sector are medical equipment and patient care. In medical equipment, digital encoders are used in a variety of ways such as measuring vital signs, controlling drug infusion pumps, and providing motion feedback for prosthetic limbs.
In the Machine tool industry, digital encoders are used to measure various parameters of a machine. For example: In order to determine the speed and feed rate of a drill press in an automated machining cell, it is necessary for an automatic control system that computes these variables based on measurements from instrumented axes. Digital encoder signals provide the feedback necessary for closed-loop control of machine motion.
Digital encoders are used in the Consumer Electronics industry to accurately measure linear or angular displacement. The output of a digital encoder is a square wave that can be counted by a microcontroller to determine position. This information can then be used to control motors, lamps, and other devices in a consumer electronics device. In addition, many digital encoders include an optical or magnetic sensor that can be used to detect the presence of an object. This feature can be used in consumer electronics devices to create a "smart" home automation system. For example, a digital encoder could be used to control a motor that opens and closes a curtain based on the time of day.
Assembly equipment is machines that join or attach two or more parts together to make a complete product. In the automotive industry, for example, an assembly machine may be used to weld car doors onto the frame of a vehicle. Digital encoders are sensors that provide feedback about the position and movement of an object in three-dimensional space. They are often used in assembly equipment to determine where the motor should move next.
On the basis of Region, the global digital encoders market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. The Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific is further divided into countries such as India, China, and Japan. This region has also been one of the most vibrant markets for digital encoders over the years owing to steady economic growth along with growing demand from end-user industries like the automobile and healthcare sectors. In terms of value, Asia Pacific is estimated to dominate the global digital encoders market throughout the analysis period. The Latin American market for digital encoders is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 16% during the forecast period. Digital encoder manufacturers are focusing on expanding their production capacity in countries such as Brazil and Mexico, which offers huge potential opportunities for players operating in this region.
The growth factors for the global digital encoders market include the increasing demand for automation across different industries, rising adoption of Industry 4.0 and IIoT concepts, and growing need for high-precision position tracking. Increasing demand from end-use industries such as healthcare, machine tool, consumer electronics, and assembly equipment is also expected to drive the growth of the digital encoders market in the coming years.
