Global Industrial Motherboards Market 2017-2021

Global Industrial Motherboards Market 2017-2021

About Industrial Motherboards

A motherboard is the most crucial component of a computer system. It is usually a solid sheet of non-conductive materials like rigid plastic. A motherboard consists of circuit traces that are thin, narrow layers of copper or aluminum foil and are printed onto the substrate. It also contains multiple slots and sockets to connect other components.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial motherboards market to grow at a CAGR of 6.22% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Motherboards Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial motherboards market: Advantech, Kontron, Beckhoff Automation, and Avalue Technology

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ADLINK Technology, Arbor, ASRock, Asus, Axiomtek, BCM, COMMELL, Corvalent, DFI, EVOC, Fujitsu, Habey USA, IEI Integration, NEXCOM, Portwell, and Texas Instruments

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Commercial motherboards are not employed in industrial applications because unlike industrial motherboards, they are not robust and have limited shelf life of less than five years and have few customization options. Hence, commercial motherboard manufacturers like Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI refrain from supplying industrial automation solutions. In recent times, the decline in the desktop sales and increase in the demand for industrial PCs have incited commercial motherboard manufacturers like Asus to enter the industrial motherboard market and offer industrial motherboards with at least five years of product life cycle. Commercial motherboard manufacturers are able to transit easily to produce industrial motherboards with the existing infrastructure or with the acquisition of sub-assembly manufacturers.”

According to the report, the operation of industrial PCs, PLCs, and DCS involves the transmission of data among various components such as hard drives, memory, processor, and through the industrial motherboard. This generates excess heat in the industrial motherboard and can damage the industrial motherboard, if the heat energy is not dissipated properly. Traditionally, industrial motherboards contain fans for dissipation of excess heat. However, fans are prone to mechanical failure, especially in hostile industrial environments, thus compromising the integrity of the overall system due to industrial motherboard damage. Hence, fan-less industrial motherboards are increasingly being adopted, especially in fan-less industrial PCs.

Further, the report states that a motherboard is the most pivotal piece of hardware in any system, commercial or industrial, as it integrates several hardware and software components and has several connections. Motherboard failures usually occur due to the failure of cooling systems and, if not detected early, can damage processor and lead to complete system shutdown. However, unlike other hardware failure, which can be detected earlier due to warning signs such as blue screens or lost files, motherboard failure is much harder to diagnose due to the paucity of such signs.
