The Data Acquisition Market, valued at US $2.26 billion in 2015, is estimated to reach US $3.03 billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate of 6.04% during the five year forecasted period. Data Acquisition system is any instrument that acquires data from sensors, converts it first into digital form and stores it back to the central location where it can be analysed and processed. The system includes I/O subsystems, a host computer and controlling software. Over the past few years, demand for these has been increasing across various industry verticals.

Data acquisition systems help in real time decision making because of its ability to obtain and analyse data on real-time basis. Mobile and cloud-based solutions are the potential segments which will witness high growth over the forecast period. It is estimated that, integration of data acquisition systems with cloud and mobile technologies will spur up the demand for these solutions.

Considering this, companies are focusing on better solutions to maintain competitive edge while facilitating the users to access the data at any time irrespective of the location. Also, the expectation from end-user segment to communicate with mobile interface is also gaining traction. Hence, the increase in demand for advanced wireless applications is expected to drive the market for DAQ software and hardware in near term.

Other major factor driving the data acquisition market is accelerating adoption of Ethernet: leading to growing confidence around interoperability and ease of integration. Moreover, increased demand for faster internet speed from the end-users has led to the migration towards USB and Ethernet based solutions. Some other factors augmenting the market demand are changing customer and interoperability requirements, need for faster processing and improvement in open software standards. At the same time, lack of specialized skills and the security issues are hindering the growth of Data Acquisition market. The cost of implementation is also a primary concern impacting market growth.

Ethernet is continuing to gain adoption in distributed measurement and control applications due to lower costs, and communication to the enterprise, and high bandwidth. Looking forward, the largest trend affecting the future of Ethernet is deterministic Ethernet for applications that require tight synchronization and data transfer between nodes. The adoption of Ethernet is accelerating with growing confidence around interoperability and ease of integration, which is driving demand for data acquisition hardware and software market. Hence, the need for real-time actionable information is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Considering these factors the adoption of Ethernet is increasing in data acquisition market which is making the market to grow lucratively during the forecast period.
