Dynamics of Wireless Standards in the Global Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) Market
Wireless sensors are scalable and can be easily integrated into planned networks for process diagnostics and optimization.
The ecosystem is highly influenced by communication protocol developers in the industrial market segment.
The right mix of low cost hardware and software features drives the adoption rate for WSNs.
Though penetration of the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) leverages WSNs, threat of data privacy and security concerns slows the momentum.
Higher adoption of WSNs to improve asset performance, plant efficiency, and safety through installation of wireless sensors with ease of integration efforts drive market revenue significantly from $million to an % CAGR during 2013–2020.
ISA100 WSNs have been making stronger inroads into various end-user applications and commanded a revenue share of % standing next to WirelessHART.
End users are switching from a wait-and-watch policy mode to a demanding mode for a universal industrial wireless network.
IIoT will favor ISA100 for its ability to remain an open and flexible framework that accommodates legacy applications regardless of protocol as well as for its ability to protect end users’ existing application investments.
