Current trend to IO-Link slightly improving
IO-Link is a field bus-neutral interface, which makes the existing point-to-point connection between I/O modules and sensors able to communicate omitting an additional core.
71% of the machine-builders gave a positive feedback to IO-Link according to a survey by Quest TechnoMarketing, comprising over 300 machine-builders in 2007. Then the economic crisis curbed the interest of using IO-Link. In 2009 only 7% of the machine-builders planned to change to IO-Link.
As the Quest Trend Magazine further publishes on http://www.quest-trendmagazin.de/Trend-to-IO-Link-slightly-impr.43.0.html?&L=1, the trend to IO-Link is again slightly improving this year. 10% of the machine-builders are ready to implement IO-Link this year. Also the broadness of this implementation has increased. In eight out of ten investigated sectors machine-builders want to introduce IO-Link. Last year just five sectors had been concerned.
All articles are published in German and English language.
So the Quest Trend Magazine makes the machine-builders’ decisions easier. Now the machine-builders can compare their intended changes with the trends in their own sector confirming or adjusting their intentions.
The suppliers of automation technology are learning beyond their constituency, which changes in IO-Link the machinery industry as a whole is aiming for this year. This enables the suppliers to meet the demand trends in time and purposefully.
The trends from the users’ point of view are based on market surveys of Quest TechnoMarketing, Bochum, London, with the title “What the machine-builders want to change in the automation technology 2010”. This survey was carried out in January/February and covered scarcely 250 representative machine-builders.
Quest TechnoMarketing is specialised in market surveys regarding the automation technology for more than 20 years and is the publisher of the Quest Trend Magazine.

Rising world market shares of the 10 largest automakers
From 2011 to 2012 the worldwide motor vehicle production rose by 5.2%. That was connected with a noticeable change of the world market shares among the 10 largest automakers. Three changes are crucial. Quest TechnoMarketing has investigated the internationalization of the worldwide automobile production since 2000 and published some results in the Quest Trend Magazine. Now this long-term trend analysis has been amended by the actual changes from 2011 to 2012

Compared with large industries such as chemistry or motor vehicle industry the machinery industry is rightly considered as medium-sized. However, it is divided into three groups that shift the medium-size character in the background. Quest TechnoMarketing investigated the industry structure of the German machinery industry and published the result in the Quest Trend Magazine. In particular for the manufacturers of automation technology it may be useful to adjust the products for

The Quest Trend Magazine has analyzed the course of the worldwide industrial production in the last 30 years. Three structural changes became visible. They are forming the economic situation also these days. The industrial production of the USA, Japan, Germany and the European Union showed an altogether continuous growth in the 20 years from 1980 to 2000. Economic crises with a decline in industrial production occurred in an interval of

The still dominating role of the European Union countries for the machine export has dramatically been relativized since 2008. And even the export shares into the BRIC countries show up noticeable shifts. The turnover of the German machinery industry achieved its crisis low with 67.5 index points (value index of the German Federal Statistical Office) at the beginning of 2010. Then started a rapid upward movement slightly exceeding with 137.6 at
