Global Industrial Power Over Ethernet Market 2017-2021
About Industrial Power over Ethernet
Industrial Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a network where the transmission of data and power occurs through a single cable between power sourcing equipment and a powered device. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is the concept of transferring power and data through the same cable that connects power sourcing equipment to the powered device. The technology dates back to 1999 when the IEEE802.3 Ethernet Working Group started working on standardizing the PoE cables.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial power over ethernet (PoE)market to grow at a CAGR of 5.54% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is attaining maximum efficiency through midspans. Midspan is used as an additional power source in the PoE network. Its position is generally placed between a non-PoE switch or a PoE switch and a PoE device. There are two ways of deploying high-power PoE technology — by upgrading the switch or by installing a midspan in the PoE network. Installation of midspan avoids the replacement of the switch. Midspans are generally used for low-power applications and to improve the performance of the PoE network. Deployment of midspans delivers a combination of superior maintenance, flexibility, security, reliability, and energy efficiency. Midspans simplify network expansion and upgrades for low-port count incremental upgrades to the power infrastructure, by decoupling the power and data portions of the network infrastructure. Midspans are ideal when there is no need for upgrading the network switch; they can be specified in a wide range of port densities.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing implementation of IIoT. IIoT enables the physical devices embedded with sensors, software, and hardware to collect, analyze, and exchange data without human intervention. A majority of the industrial applications of IoT include PLC, DCS, and IPC. The main purpose of incorporating IIoT is to reduce the operating expenses and connect the remote infrastructure. The development of smart factories is made easy by IIoT- enabled Ethernet-based devices. This is leading to the increment of approximately 10% throughput, 20% increment in productivity at machine level, and 10% reduction in inventory.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is emergence of cheap and duplicate PoE injectors. The success of PoE led to the increased utilization of PoE injectors, which in turn, led the local vendors to produce cheaper PoE injectors that do not follow any of the standards. Such type of duplicate and cheaper products come from companies that are not in the networking business, also known as no name or white box producers. IEEE did not trademark PoE. This led to unstandardized practices of manufacturing cheaper PoE injectors. There are two ways of powering a remote device — power over signal pairs and power over idle pairs. PDs are expected to accept power by both methods, but PSEs are expected to transfer power only by one of the two methods. Generally, cheaper PoE injectors will directly have a direct supply inside a box that would interrupt idle pairs and place permanent voltage on them.
