Global Industrial Bluetooth Market 2017-2021
About Industrial Bluetooth
The industrial Bluetooth is a low cost, low power, short range communication technology intended to replace cable communication. Industrial Bluetooth is the foremost option for short range radio frequency communication. This low power technology provides a mechanism for making small wireless networks on an ad-hoc basis known as piconets. A collection of Bluetooth devices in the nearby physical proximity operating on the same channel and using same frequency hopping sequence is known as a piconet. Bluetooth technology is a robust, easy-to-use wireless solution for industrial wireless applications. In addition to low power consumption, Bluetooth module allows multiple wireless links, offers fast connections, and has easier configuration and setup than other wireless technologies.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial Bluetooth market to grow at a CAGR of 2.53% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global industrial Bluetooth market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the sales of only Industrial Bluetooth modules.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Bluetooth Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial Bluetooth market: Cypress Semiconductor, Dialog Semiconductor, Microchip Technology, Nordic Semiconductor, and Texas Instruments
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Atmel, Advantech, CEL, Intel, TDK, STMicroelectronics, and Silicon Labs.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of new Bluetooth Mesh designs transforming the lighting sector. Bluetooth Mesh is a significant development in the Bluetooth wireless connectivity. It adds new capabilities that are beyond point-to-point and star topologies. Bluetooth Mesh allows industries to enable connectivity of tens or even hundreds of nodes over a large area in applications such as lightings and others. Bluetooth Mesh enables BLE connectivity to multi-node applications in industries. The installation of lightings in a wide area is further strengthened by the introduction of software development kits for Bluetooth Mesh; for example, Nordic's nRF5 SDK for mesh. Bluetooth Mesh enables users to instantly and simultaneously control hundreds of Bluetooth low-energy equipped lights from a smart phone or a tablet equipped with Bluetooth 4.0. Some of the other applications of Bluetooth Mesh include backend for beacons and industrial monitoring.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing adoption of wireless technology for industrial automation. With the advances in technology, the concern for automating processes in the industries is also increasing. Adoption of wireless technology in the industrial communication system helps the industries to cope up with the advances. One such technology in wireless communication technology is Bluetooth. There are different versions of Bluetooth available in the market such as Bluetooth 4.0, Bluetooth 4.2, and Bluetooth 5.0.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Short range of Bluetooth makes connectivity difficult in industrial environment. Bluetooth transmits signals at low power (0 dBm or less), and transmission of data rate is also high (1mb/s), resulting in very short time-on-air. The innovation of BLE addressed this challenge, as BLE makes Bluetooth suitable for battery powered devices such as wearables to link smart phones. The need for installation of infrastructure that can backhaul data makes the BLE model weak for implementation in an industrial environment
