Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Beijer Electronics, Bluestone Technology, Chassis Plans, Curtis-Wright, Esterline Technologies, and Sparton Rugged Electronics.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing trend of BYOD. Bring your own device (BYOD) may be described as the practice of allowing the employees of an organization to use their own computers, smartphones, or other devices for work purposes. Nearly 70% of rugged smartphone customers are motivated to purchase their rugged smartphone, partially because of the environment in which they work. Consumer rugged smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, are finding their way into businesses from micro and small organizations to large multinationals. Employees are now purchasing their own choice of the handset with the expectation that they will be able to use its features for work.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Reduced TCO. TCO consists of all actual costs that are incurred during the entire life cycle of a product. It comprises hard costs such as purchase price, development, replacement, and deployment costs, as well as soft costs such as training, repair, and downtime costs. With more organizations becoming dependent on their mobile workforce, downtime costs have become increasingly important and effectual. For example, if a field service representative has a device failure at the start of his day, the lost service revenue and customer goodwill from all the missed service calls can be significantly high.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Slow adoption of consumer-grade display devices in industrial applications. From the 1980s, enterprises began adopting ruggedized mobile handheld devices and processing information in business applications for industrial purposes. Even though consumer-grade devices such as iPods and Android smartphones can do everything that can be done on special purpose ruggedized devices, they have seen a slow adoption in industrial applications.
