Purchasing power in the couPurchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%. On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.                                                         Request Insights

  • British Encoder Products Company introduced the NEW Model A58SB absolute bus encoder in both single and multi-turn resolution, which is designed for harsh factory and plant floor environments. As an absolute encoder, it is especially suited to applications where an encoder needs to retain position information after power-off scenarios.
  • TE Connectivity (TE) introduced the KMA36 Magnetic Encoder IC, based on Anisotropic Magnetoresistive (AMR) technology. It is a precise universal magnetic Encoder IC for rotational or linear measurement with resolution up to 15 bit. It offers a sleep mode (reduced power) over I²C and programmable parameters, providing options for a wide range of configurations.

A sensing device that provides feedback can be termed as an encoder. Encoder sensors are a type of mechanical motion sensor that create a digital signal from a motion. It is an electro-mechanical device that provides users (commonly those in a motion control capacity) with information on position, velocity and direction. There are two main types of encoder-linear and rotary. The motor encoder is a rotary encoder mounted to an electric motor that provides closed loop feedback signals by tracking the speed and/or position of a motor shaft. The demand for motion control encoders is on the rise amongst the commercial aerospace and defense industry, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global motion control encoders market during the forecast period. It was found that, the global commercial aerospace and defense (A&D) industry generated a revenue of more than USD 700 billion in 2021.
