According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global optical encoder market is the growing need for SMT equipment:

Global optical encoder market: Growing need for SMT equipment

SMT equipment is required to place components such as resistors and capacitors onto a PCB. The components that are placed on the PCB are called as surface mount devices (SMD). To place the electronic components accurately onto a PCB, the SMT equipment makes use of high-resolution verification cameras and fine adjustment systems such as encoders on each axis.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on semiconductor equipment, “The demand for high-quality assurance in the SMT placement processes is increasing due to the rising complexity of electronic products. This is driving the demand for optical encoders integrated into SMT equipment. The growth of the PCB market has been promoting the growth of the global SMT equipment market.”

Global optical encoder market: Segmentation analysis

The global optical encoder market research report provides segmentation by product type (absolute encoder and incremental encoder), by end-user (machine tools manufacturers, assembly equipment manufacturers, consumer electronics and semiconductor equipment manufacturers, and healthcare equipment manufacturers), and by region (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). It provides an in-depth analysis of the prominent factors influencing the market, including drivers, opportunities, trends, and industry-specific challenges.

Of the two major product types, the absolute encoder segment held the largest market share in 2017, contributing to over 65% of the market. This segment will dominate the global market throughout the forecast period.
