Optocouplers or opto-isolators are electronic devices used to protect components that require low voltage inputs. Optocouplers isolate a lower voltage section from a high voltage section in the same circuit.. The scope of the report includes competitive analysis of various market segments based on types, applications and in-depth cross sectional scrutiny of the optocouplers market across different geographic segments. Growing demand for automotive and industrial optocouplers has fuelled the growth of optocouplers market. Optocouplers are used for isolation of components that requires low voltage to operate and also for transferring data while filtering noise among others. Increasing penetration of high end vehicles with driver assistance systems and various industrial applications for isolating components is driving the market for optocouplers,. Driver assistance system in automotives requires an electronic control unit (ECU) to operate which runs on a considerably low voltage. This step down of voltage and isolation is achieved through an optocouplers. Moreover industrial machines and components require a high voltage butwhere as some components among them require low voltage to operate. These needs for isolation of voltages are generally achieved through an optocoupler. As a result, usage of optocouplers is estimated to rise during the forecast period.
Rising environment concerns for lead free production of electrical components has created opportunity for optocouplers manufacturers to manufacture optocouplers according to environment standard. Demand for printer and imaging device and digital signage has fuelled the market for optocouplers in all the regions globally. Expansion of various industries in Asia Pacific has conjointly impacted the application of optocouplers in communication, industrial and automotive sectors. Growth of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and advancement in isolation techniques are the two major drivers driving growth of the optocouplers market. HEVs have a wide application of optocouplers in their powertrain, and charging unit, to safeguard their user. New isolation techniques such as hermetically sealed components (airtight) in applications like aerospace, military and navy among others gave rise to the need for hermetic optocouplers
