>PRWEB.COM Newswire

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 24, 2011

Despite being an established concept with about 30 years of history in the instrumentation industry, the DAQ market continues to evolve owing to regular introduction of new technologies. Data acquisition finds use in diverse fields, ranging from monitoring agriculture applications to testing in automotive and aerospace industries. The technology has gradually evolved into the most vital constituent of the measurement market and represents an ubiquitous part of the entire instrumentation industry, while in the research and development (R&D) field, data acquisition technology is now an indispensable part for collection of physical measurement data.

Future DAQ devices are expected to continue leveraging and benefiting from advancements in technology across consumer electronics and computing industries. USB devices would witness greater adoption and rapid growth, while signal conditioning would be integrated more widely. Advanced synchronization technologies would enable customers to develop larger and more advanced DAQ systems. Regular cost reduction, the shift towards open software standards, and technological advancements leading to greater penetration of wireless data links and Ethernet/web enabled instrumentation is also likely to boost the DAQ market. Web-enabled instrumentation is expected to dominate the market in the near future, as stated by the new by the new market research report on Data Acquisition Hardware. In the long run, the DAQ market is likely to be driven by the fact that existence of common serial bus technologies such as Ethernet and USB eliminate the need for upgrades.

Worldwide DAQ system requirements are almost similar, with only slight variation in preferences across different regions. Performance, accuracy, quality and user-friendliness are the most desirable features across the world, with regional variances in terms of preference of one feature over the other. The US represents the largest DAQ market globally. However, Asia-Pacific is emerging as the new power center in the data acquisition market, a trend accentuated by the simultaneous robust growth in the region led by China and India and decline in Europe and North American markets. The region’s growth is spurred by the increasing trend of shifting manufacturing operations by large multinational corporations to Asia. Driven by these factors, the Asia-Pacific market for External Devices is forecast to grow significantly by 2015.
