Dublin, May 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "IO-Link Market with COVID-19 Impact Analysis by Type (IO-Link Wired, IO-Link Wireless), Component (IO-Link Master, IO-Link Devices), Industry (Process, Discrete, Hybrid), Application, and Geography(North America, Europe, APAC) - Global Forecast to 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The IO-Link market size is projected to reach USD 24.2 billion by 2026 from an estimated USD 7.7 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 25.6% from 2021 to 2026.

The rising demand for Industry 4.0 and the ability to support all fieldbus protocols are among the factors driving the growth of the IO-Link market.

The IO-Link devices segment held the major share of the IO-Link market in 2020, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

The increasing adoption of sensors, modules, RFID heads, and actuators in industrial applications is expected to create potential growth opportunities for IO-Link devices. Industry 4.0 and IoT are becoming the key technology trends for the automation and motion control industry. This has accelerated the demand for smart sensors, which is expected to drive the growth of the IO-Link devices market in the near future.

The discrete industries segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The surging demand for new technologies from the automotive, aerospace & defense, semiconductor & electronics, machine manufacturing, packaging, and medical devices industries is primarily responsible for the growth of this segment. Increasing demand for a new remote configuration, monitoring, and maintenance solution also fuels the growth of this segment.

The packaging automation solutions application is projected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing demand for packaging automation solutions by manufacturers to streamline supply chain operations. Automated conveyors and sortation systems with numerous IO-Link-capable RFID read heads and proximity sensors are used to merge, categorize, and separate products in the packaging industry.

Based on region, Europe is expected to account for the largest share of the IO-Link market by 2026.

The region is likely to dominate the market due to the high demand from the automotive, aerospace & defense, and industrial manufacturing sectors. The presence of IO-Link companies such as Siemens, Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG, Balluff GmbH, ifm electronic GmbH, and SICK AG also aids the market's growth in this region.

Siemens (Germany), Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), Balluff GmbH (Germany), ifm electronic GmbH (Germany), SICK AG (Germany), Rockwell Automation, Inc. (US), Omron Corporation (Japan), Pepperl+Fuchs (Germany), Festo SE & Co. KG (Germany), and SMC Corporation (Japan), are some of the key players in the IO-Link market.
