The global optocouplers market is driven by the growth of the automotive and industrial sector, especially in the emerging countries. Developing countries such as India and China are witnessing a huge demand for optocouplers, due to large investments in the communication sector. An overall increase in the use of automation in the manufacturing sector is driving the global optocouplers market. A rise in the demand for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) is also encouraging the market’s growth.
An optocoupler is an electronic component used to transfer electrical signals between two circuits by the use of light. Optocouplers isolate low voltage components from high voltage spikes in the same circuit, thus preventing high voltages from affecting the system that is receiving the signal. They are extensively used in printers and imaging devices, communication sectors, automobiles, and industrial applications.
The market restraints include high power consumption by optocouplers and the low data rates that they provide. Moreover, the intrinsic wear-out of optocouplers components will also restrict the market’s growth. However, the use of optocouplers in the military, aerospace, and defense sectors will spur growth opportunities in the market. Replacement of relays with optocouplers will also open new growth opportunities in the market. The rising purchasing power of consumers in the coming years is further expected to drive the market.
