I/O Modules for Discrete Automation

Publish Date

The I/O Modules for Discrete Automation Market Research Study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries.

I/O Modules Market Influenced by Upswing in Global Production

The Discrete Automation I/O Modules market experienced strong growth over the last two years.  It grew stronger than the overall automation market.   Due to regional focus, technological developments, and other factors, ARC expects this trend to continue over the next five years.  Especially 2018, which will show over the average performance once again due to stable global economic developments on a high level.

Discrete automation I/O module shipments grew worldwide in 2017.  Even Latin America experienced small growth after years of decline.  Discrete automation I/O module shipments to Europe were on a good level in 2017.  The European economy was assisted by the steady lower euro value.  

Technological trends include a shift to smaller modules with less energy consumption, resulting in less heat development.  Also, communication interfaces need to meet requirements of Industrie 4.0 to enable competitive manufacturing. 

The market for discrete I/O modules is dominated by suppliers that are also market leaders in PLCs, e.g., Siemens, Rockwell Automation, Mitsubishi Electric, and Phoenix Contact.  Overall, our analysis suggests that broad automation portfolios clearly enable suppliers to garner defensible leadership positions.
