Global Industrial WLAN Market 2017-2021
About Industrial WLAN
The industrial WLAN is a wireless network that is used to connect field devices and control systems to transfer data at shorter distances in an industrial environment. The emergence of new industrial WLAN standards is increasing the scope of transferring high volumes of data at a high data transmission rate. Trends, such as the emergence of concurrent dual-radio technology, the emergence of 802.11ax, and evolution of cloud-based technologies, are indicators of technical innovations arising in the industrial WLAN market. Despite the challenges, such as security threats of WLAN, high power consumption, and threat from other wireless technologies, the market for industrial WLAN is growing because of drivers, such as the emergence of Industry 4.0, rise in the Internet traffic, and generation of large volumes of data that is accelerating the bandwidth and developments in 802.11 wireless standards.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial WLAN market to grow at a CAGR of 6.38% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial WLAN Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial WLAN market: Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems, Dell, Huawei Technologies, and Siemens
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aruba Networks (HP), Aerohive Networks, Allied Telesis, Boingo Wireless, Extreme Networks, Fortinet, Moxa, Ruckus Wireless, and WiFi SPARK.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of concurrent dual-radio technology. Many advanced wireless technologies are introduced to detect interference in the signal, identify the source location, and switch bands to restore wireless communication. The concurrent dual-radio technology is one of the emerging technologies used for uninterrupted safety critical applications in the industries. The concurrent dual-radio transmission technology works on the principle of simultaneously sending duplicate packet data with every outbound packet sent via secondary frequency to ensure that at least one of the packets reaches the receiver.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Emergence of Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is a concept that originated in Germany, which focuses on the automation of factories and the implementation of IoT in industries. The adoption of Industry 4.0 enables industrial advances with the help of advanced computing, analytics, low-cost sensing, and new levels of connectivity enabled by the Internet. Some of the technologies supporting this revolution are cloud services, big data analytics, and pervasive intelligent sensing technologies.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Security threats of WLAN. Despite the advantages that WLAN provide such as easy connectivity, convenience, increased productivity, and cost advantage, the industrial WLAN also poses few security threats such as denial of service, spoofing and session hijacking, and eavesdropping.
