By type, the IO-Link wired segment held the major share of the IO-Link market in 2020.
The growth of this segment is due to the increasing demand for cost-saving installation of two-way communication between field devices such as sensors, actuators, controllers, and other automation systems on a factory floor. IO-Link wired simplifies wiring, which makes its installation cost lower than a conventional solution. This is due to the use of field modules and connections with cables that do not require shielding. Industry players use IO-Link wired platform to install serial communication protocol with sensors and actuators. It enables bidirectional data exchange from field devices and makes data accessible for analysis to a programmable logic controller (PLC) and human–machine interfaces (HMI). This helps improve work efficiency and working conditions in manufacturing companies.
By industry, discrete industries accounted for the largest share of the IO-Link market in 2020, and a similar trend is likely to continue in the near future
Discrete industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, semiconductor & electronics, machine manufacturing, packaging, and medical devices follow stringent protocols for their manufacturing operations and continuously focus on reducing operational costs. This leads them to adopt industrial automation and IoT technologies for their business operations. Also, these industries majorly focus on improving the operational efficiency of machines to meet the increasing customer demands. IO-Link can help reduce manufacturing costs, speed up commissioning times, reduce the number of network nodes, and lower the downtime of machines or systems. This factor is expected to increase the adoption of IO-Link in discrete industries.
