Optocoupler IC Market Trends

  • The growing consumer electronics market globally is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for optocoupler IC is driven by the rising number of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices; there is an increasing demand for small and high-performance optocoupler ICs to enable smooth communication and data transfer. The optocoupler normally transmits digital information but may also send analog signals in certain conditions. Consumer electronics, smart home appliances, and computer auxiliary devices are responsible for the surge in demand for optocouplers. Optocouplers can be found in consumer electronic equipment such as televisions, set-top boxes, home appliances, stereo systems, and digital displays, offering electrical noise isolation and protection. Optocouplers are used in medical devices and equipment to provide electrical separation, which ensures patient safety in applications such as patient monitors, defibrillators, and medical imaging systems.

Another key reason driving demand for optocoupler ICs is the growth in the use of electric vehicles (EVs) and the growing use of optocoupler IC in audio processors, subsystems, MEMS microphones, audio amplifiers, etc. EVs depend on sophisticated electrical systems for a variety of tasks, including battery management, motor control, and infrastructure for charging. The purpose of optocouplers is to shield delicate control circuitry from voltage variations, undesired noise, and electromagnetic interference. Furthermore, expanding R&D activities, technical developments, and equipment modernization will create more opportunities for the optocoupler IC market.

Additionally, the optocouplers market is expanding due to developments in industries such as automation, the need for electric cars, and wireless equipment. Businesses have been investing in optocouplers to improve the performance of their products based on it. The increasing adoption of automation solutions is anticipated to fuel demand for optocouplers during the forecast period. They also enable isolation in industrial applications such as data communication and digital logic interface circuits, photovoltaic (PV) inverters, power supply, and motor control circuits of servo automation systems and industrial robots.

The optocoupler controls sending data over the isolation barrier while filtering out undesirable noise in industrial automation applications. Errors in data transmission can arise from a component's inability to reject unwanted noise. The common-mode voltage (VCM) and the transient signal's rise and fall timings (dv/dt) are important parameters in determining CMR. The failure point is identified by raising either VCM or dv/dt until the output signal of the optocoupler crosses into the opposing logic state. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) estimates that the yearly installation of industrial robots has grown from 400 thousand units in 2017 to 517 thousand units in 2021. As a result, it is anticipated that demand for Optocoupler IC will increase throughout the projection period due to the rising obesity rate. Thus, driving the Optocoupler IC market revenue.
