COVID-19 Impact on the Global IO-Link Market

The outbreak and the spread of COVID-19 have impacted the IO-Link market in 2020, resulting in a decline in IO-Link revenues generated from them. As a result, a dip was witnessed in the growth trend of the market during the first half of 2020. As the complete shutdown of all manufacturing plants, public places, and offices due to lockdowns across the world, the demand for IO-Link solutions decreased dramatically. Global lockdowns have also affected the production of manufacturing industries, along with the GDP of countries and per capita income worldwide. The consequent reduction in the purchasing power of the masses has led to a decline in the y-o-y growth of the market. However, the latter half of the year is expected to witness normalization in the inventory levels and increased demand for IO-Link products owing to stabilization in the process, hybrid, and discrete industries.

Market Dynamics:

Driver: Rising demand for Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 aims at fully integrating the communication process used in manufacturing to improve the efficiency of factories and transform them into smart factories. This is achieved through Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), industrial automation, data exchange, and deployment of smart field devices. The benefits of Industry 4.0 and IIoT include the integration of IO-Link solutions with overall industrial automation systems, easy replacement of sensors, elimination of manual parameter settings, continuous data monitoring and status diagnostics, and increased uptime.

Restraint: Use of compact machines

IO-Link solutions help reduce cables and wiring for industrial machines. Manufacturing industries demand compact and reliable solutions for their operational processes. This leads to the requirement of compact machines on a factory floor. Such compact machines, apart from being small, consume less power and offer better performance as compared with other industrial solutions. Also, the wiring in compact machines is already short. In such cases, deploying IO-Link solutions is costlier for industry players. In addition, these machines are efficient and require lesser space than traditional machines and other industrial solutions. Hence, the use of compact machines for industrial automation is a key hurdle for the growth of the IO-Link market.

Opportunity: Increasing adoption of IO-Link in automotive industry

A minor shutdown can result in huge losses in a manufacturing unit in the automotive industry. A fault can hamper the entire production process. IO-Link devices are used to eliminate such downtimes, improve product and production processes, and ensure regular preventive maintenance. IO-Link masters are developed according to AIDA specifications for the automotive industry and provide improved performance. The Automation Initiative of German Domestic Automobile manufacturers (AIDA) has defined a standard for IO-Link masters used in the automotive industry. According to this standard, an L-coded power connection with functional earth is to be used for all field modules. Vertical integration in automation for the automotive industry includes the support of EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP. Also, IO-Link products are used for seamless integration with controllers. Thus, the automotive industry is expected to create a huge opportunity for the IO-Link ecosystem players in the near future.

Challenge: Cyber risks associated with automation systems

IO-Link solutions are vulnerable to threats such as cross-site request forgery (CSRF), reflected cross-site scripting (XSS), blind command injection, and denial-of-service (DoS) issues. Also, Other risks associated with IO-Link include spear phishing, watering hole, and database injection. In a phishing assault, a digital criminal can steal the data from devices by deceiving them into sharing the security key for an application. Cyber risks threaten industrial automation and control systems (IACS). However, cybersecurity measures are taken to secure IACS against such risks. These assaults are used to threaten manufacturing industries and gain monetary benefits or critical business information. These dangers begin from the web, corporate systems, programming overhauls, and unapproved access.

By type, IO-Link wireless to grow with the highest CAGR during forecast period

The IO-Link wireless segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The performance, functionality, and capability of IO-Link wireless are comparable to wired IO-Link; however, the elimination of cables ensures more flexibility, greater robustness, and better scalability. The rising demand for the IO-Link wireless protocol and increasing adoption of smart manufacturing across industries are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the growth of IO-Link wireless in the near future.

IO-Link devices hold the larger share of the IO-Link market in 2020

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. IO-Link devices can be integrated into any fieldbus or automation system, have auto-device replacement functionality, and are easy to integrate. Such devices can be connected using the same cost-effective standard unshielded 3-wire cables as conventional discrete I/O, which helps reduce complex wiring. Also, 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.

Discrete industries segment is projected to hold the largest share in 2027

In 2027, the discrete industries segment is projected to capture the largest share of the IO-Link market. The surging demand for new technologies from automotive, aerospace & defense, semiconductor & electronics, machine manufacturing, packaging, and medical devices industries is primarily responsible for the growth of this segment. In addition, increasing demand for a new remote configuration, monitoring, and maintenance solution also expected to fuels the growth of this segment in near future.
