In 2022, 8.4 million IO-Link nodes were integrated into systems. This means that 2.1 million more nodes were installed than in the previous year (2021). This corresponds to an increase of 33% over that year’s growth. In all, by the close of 2022, a grand total of 35.7 million IO-Link nodes have been installed since its inception.
“These numbers and the trends of previous years impressively prove that our technology hasn’t just arrived on the market, but will remain a market leader for the long term,” said Karsten Schneider, PI Chairman, with delight. “We made the right decisions, our experts in the working groups did an outstanding job and member companies implemented a large number of marketable products. For this, I would like to thank the entire community,” said Schneider.
