“Industrial communication market to grow at 11.14% CAGR during 2018-2023”
The industrial communication market is expected to reach USD 83.2 billion by 2018 from USD 141.0 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 11.14% during 2018-2023. The market is mainly driven by the adoption of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and advancement in M2M communication technology for industrial networking. The growth of Industry 4.0 practices in Europe and North America propels the implementation of industrial communication offerings. Different standards adopted by various equipment manufacturers are hindering the data collection and information generating process, and acting as a major restraint for the industrial communication market.
“Automotive and transportation to hold major share of industrial communication market during forecast period”
Among the end-use applications considered, automotive and transportation is the largest contributor to the overall industrial communication market by 2018. The increasing number of automotive manufacturing hubs in the world implementing advanced automation techniques for production is expected to boost the demand for industrial communication offerings. Additionally, Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) is a widely used protocol in automotive manufacturing. In the automotive industry, many processes are controlled through computers, and Ethernet is one of the most suitable protocols for computer-enabled communication.
“Water and wastewater application to register highest CAGR in market during forecast period”
The demand for effective industrial communication in the water and wastewater industry is on rise with the growing need to manage and increase the efficiency of the plants in response to the increasing water scarcity and complexity of water management in water utilities and plants. Rain gauges and smart flowmeters are the most commonly used instruments in the water facilities. Water level monitoring sensors, AC drives, and controllers are crucial components of the water treatment systems, and the industrial communication network is used to facilitate communication among these devices. All these factors are expected to fuel the growth of the industrial communication market for the water and wastewater applications during the forecast period.
