Optocoupler IC Market Overview

Global Optocoupler IC Market was valued at USD 1.86 Billion in 2018; it is expected to reach USD 2.55 Billion by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 6.5%. Photocoupler, optoisolator, and optical isolator are all terms used to describe an optocoupler. It is an electronic component that uses a light-sensitive optical interface to send an electrical signal between two isolated circuits. A photosensitive transistor and an LED are the two main components of an optocoupler. Audio amplifiers, audio processors, MEMS microphones, and subsystems all use optocoupler ICs in some way. Microprocessor input/output switching, PC communications, DC and AC power control, signal isolation, and power supply regulation are some of the most typical commercial applications for optocouplers. The Optocoupler IC Market Growth is gaining more investment due to the rise of the optoelectronics market and the increasing acceptance of optical technology across numerous end-user industries. According to WSTS, the Optocoupler IC Market Growth is predicted to grow at the fastest rate in the total Optocoupler IC Industry.

COVID 19 Analysis

New product introductions (NPI) are used to drive both innovation and sales in the electronics supply chain. The COVID-19 epidemic has caused more than half (53%) of product releases in the electronics sector to be postponed or canceled. Since the start of the shutdown, Optocoupler IC Market Size and Optocoupler IC Market Share have been significantly harmed during the Optocoupler IC Market Analysis. For example, Evelta Electronics in India (which supplies ON Semiconductor, Toshiba, and LiteOn Technology optocouplers) stated that due to the COVID-19 crisis and the authorities' recent lockout, newly placed orders would be shipped only if the backlog was cleared. Other worldwide vendors are having similar problems, which has affected the Optocoupler IC Industry.
