What Opportunities Lie Ahead for Contactless Coupler Manufacturers?

“Wind Turbines Supplementing Growth Trajectory of Contactless Couplers”

Consumption of conventional energy sources generates a significant amount of CO2 and other greenhouse gasses. Due to this, a dynamic shift has been observed from conventional to renewable sources of energy over the past few years. Wind turbines are considered as a prominent source of renewable energy, which is likely to address the dynamic energy demand and CO2 emission challenges.

Wind turbines require reliable power and data transmission from the nacelle to the control system for rotary blades. In addition, contactless coupler solutions are likely to improve the efficiency of wind turbines for power generation. Owing to this, demand for power supply couplers in wind turbines is likely to increase due to their power transmission applications.

Thus, rising application in wind turbines is likely to aid the supply chain and surge product penetration of wireless connectors.

“Defense Sector Driving Demand for Contactless Couplers”

Increasing defense budgets and emergence of efficient machinery in defense are projected to intensify the adoption of contactless couplers at defense manufacturing facilities. This is due to the application of torque coupling, disk coupling, hysteresis coupling, and magnetic couplings in machinery.

All operations in defense are associated with the utilization of radar and satellites to ensure efficient power and signal transmission for safety applications.

Contactless couplers for defense application are been developed with a vision of wear-free couplers/connectors for rugged environments conditions, and this includes application in electro-optic systems, blade de-ice, target acquisition systems, and tank turrets.

“Largest Market – North America; Fastest-growing Market – Asia Pacific”

This comprehensive analysis of the contactless couples market includes six prominent regions to project an eagle view of market - North America, Latin America, Europe, East Asia, South Asia & Oceania and Middle East & Africa.

Considering the end-use industry concentration and demand landscape, North America is evaluated to corner the largest chunk of the market share pie of contactless connectors, followed by Europe.

North America currently accounts for 30% of the global market with a valuation of close to US$ 140 Mn. The North America contactless coupler solutions market is projected to create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 100.8 Mn during the assessment period.

South Asia & Oceania and East Asia is presumed to exhibit the fastest growth rate owing to a surge in manufacturing facilities. The market for contactless connectors in Latin America and MEA is expected to see sluggish growth and account for a minimal market share due to the poor end-use industry scenario.

Category-wise Insights

Which Product Type is Expected to Experience High Demand Growth?

Fiber optic rotary joints held 50.9% market share in 2021 and demand is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

Maturing requirement for fast Ethernet connections across multitude domains, right from aerospace and military to manufacturing is an evident sign that will might supplement the demand trajectory of FORJ (fibre optic rotary joints) over the coming years.

However, capacitive contactless couplers account for nearly 33.1% market share and are likely to remain hold the position and reach a market value of US$ 183.3 Mn by the end of 2032.

Which Application of Contactless Coupler Systems is Set to Surge?

Rising integration of technology and decentralization of industrial production have paved the way for higher demand for contactless couplers. Manufacturing industries are leaned towards automation in order to improve profitability through optimized labour & energy costs with stretched operational time. Contactless couplers provide flexibility, reliability, decentralization, and smarter connections. 

A never-ending stream of growing requirement for robots in industrial automation in order to achieve consistent product quality will supplement the demand curve. Application of industrial robots is growing all the time from all prominent sectors, which has created demand for wireless slip rings, owing to handling of more complex operations in a whole different range of environments. This would call for subsequent increase in demand for contactless connectors, with a projected value of around $171 Mn by the end of 2032.
