The Encoder Market is expected to grow at a CAGR 7.39% rate during the forecast period. Need for high-end automation and industry 4.0 are the factor driving the growth of the market.Rotary encoders to drive encoders market during forecast period. Rotary encoders track motor shaft rotation to generate a digital position and motion information. These encoders are widely used in industrial and commercial designs due to their durability and excellent performance. Typically, rotary encoders are electromechanical devices that are used to measure the number of rotations, the rotational angle, and the rotational position of equipment.


Optical technology to boost encoders market during forecast period. Optical encoders do not require any separate electronics to provide position or exact location. Their output is easier to specify and deploy and is immediately usable by a host control system. Due to the accuracy provided by optical encoders, they are widely used in automation in the textile, paper, wood, metal, rubber, plastics, and consumer electronics industries.


Industrial is expected to be the leading end use for the encoders market. The industrial end use is growing rapidly due to upcoming technologies such as robotics, automation, and smart manufacturing. As a result, the demand for encoders is increasing in industrial end uses to determine motion position, control of joint position, measurement of linear extension, gripper and finger feedback, and force feedback. Industrial holds the largest share in APAC due to the availability of advanced manufacturing processes in countries such as China and Japan.


APAC to be fastest-growing market during forecast period. Automotive, food & beverages, and industrial end-use industries in APAC have witnessed significant growth in the past few years. The growth in these industries has been propelled by a huge population shift and an increase in disposable income, which have prompted a higher demand for products in APAC. Manufacturers are adopting new techniques in manufacturing to reduce cost, save time, and improve product quality. These factors will continue to propel the demand for encoders in these industries in APAC during the forecast period.


Key market players includes HEIDENHAIN Gmbh (Germany), POSITAL FRABA inc (Germany), Sensata Technologies (US), Dynapar Corporation (US), and Baumer Group (Switzerland).
