Research and Markets Logo

The industrial communication market is expected to be worth USD 141.04 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 11.14% during 2018-2023.

Industrial communication mainly consists of the devices, systems, and software required in machine-to-machine and man-to-machine communication in discrete, process, and hybrid industries. The consulting, installation, and support services are also a part of this market.

Industrial Ethernet protocol and wireless protocol are expected to witness higher growth during the forecast period. Over the years, Ethernet protocol has come up as a better replacement for the Fieldbus protocol in an array of industrial applications; with this, the growth of the market for Ethernet protocol has significantly outpaced that of the market for industrial Fieldbus protocol in recent years. However, with a large installed base of legacy system in developed countries, and demand for the Fieldbus protocol in process industries, the market for this protocol is also expected to grow during the first half of the forecast period, but at a much lower rate than the market for Ethernet.

The industrial communication 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 growth of industrial communication. Moreover, the growing penetration of Industry 4.0 and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) in developing countries in APAC and the Middle East is expected to offer new growth opportunities for the industrial communication solutions providers during the forecast period. 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.

This report covers the key components required for enabling industrial communications, such as connectors, controllers and processors, converters, routers, gateways, switches, hubs, and power supply devices. Of all the components, switches are the largest contributor to the overall industrial communication market, accounting for a share of 21.84% of the market for components in 2017.

Communication protocol plays an important role in industrial communication. A communication protocol states a set of rules for a given type of communication. Industrial communication is currently dominated by Fieldbus and industrial Ethernet protocols. Wireless communication protocol holds a small share of this market but is expected to grow at a rapid CAGR of 15.67% during the forecast period.

Some of the major players operating in industrial communication market include OMRON Corporation (Japan), Schneider Electric SE (France), Siemens AG (Germany), ABB LTD. (Switzerland), Rockwell Automation, Inc. (US), Advantech Co., Ltd. (Taiwan), ifm electronic gmbh (Germany), HMS Industrial Networks (Sweden), Cisco Systems, Inc. (US), Moxa Inc. (US), and Belden Inc. (US).

These players have adopted various strategies to expand their global presence and increase their market shares. Product launches and developments, and acquisitions and collaborations are some of the major strategies adopted by the market players to strengthen their position in this market.
