The Actuator Sensor Interface is expected to reach USD 1,158.5 Million by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.3% between 2017 and 2023. The growth of this market is propelled by the rise of adoption of process automation in process industry; support from the government for the adoption of industrial automation in various industries; and simple, easy, and fast installation of AS-Interface system with minimum cables.

The AS-i gateway/master component is expected to hold the largest market size in 2017. It is the central part of AS-Interface system. It is responsible for the link connection to the higher-level control system. A single master is responsible for handling a large number of slaves. The demand for the AS-i gateway increases owing to its major use in process industries. It helps in monitoring the communication among connected devices and helps in detecting faults. The AS-i slave component is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. The demand for the AS-i slave increases due to its various applications in process industries. The slave is small in size and can be easily integrated within the sensor and actuator. Various slaves are handled by a single master.

Water and wastewater treatment industry in the AS-Interface market expected to grow at the second-highest rate between 2017 and 2023. AS-Interface in water and wastewater treatment enable proper communication to complete the purification of water. The AS-interface creates a network connecting to various systems in an optimum operating plant, to minimize wastage and valuable resources. The need for water has raised the concept of purifying water and reusing it. This process includes activities such as refining of the impurities, distribution and storage of water, and processing of water. These processes need effective communication between the devices as these devices are interdependent for performing the processes.

Drive control application market of AS-Interface is expected to grow at the second-highest rate during the forecast period. AS-Interface motor module offers the drive solutions and saves valuable time and costs during commissioning and service. The AS-Interface DC 24 V motors and the associated sensors are directly connected with AS-Interface to control the motion during the manufacturing process. For instance, the manufacturing process consists of conveying lines that comprise drive rollers, which is integrated with AS-Interface DC motors. An AS-interface DC motors have a feature of quick-stop function that stops the ongoing process in the conveying line.

Europe is expected to hold the second-largest market share of AS-Interface market by 2023, due to the growing presence of industries such as automobiles, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. The company base related to electrical & electronics and automotive sectors are huge in the UK. All these companies are increasingly installing connected devices such as industrial robots and video surveillance systems to improve productivity. These devices require communication system to maintain efficient flow of data between the devices. This requirement is fulfilled using AS-Interface in these industries.

AS-Interface Market

Key restraining factors of AS-Interface market is the declining prices in oil & gas that affect the infrastructure-related investments. Key market players such as Bihl+Wiedemann GmbH (Germany), Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH (Germany), Siemens AG (Germany) are focusing on the strategies such as product launches, acquisitions, and collaborations to enhance their geographical presence and expand their business.
