Market Scenario:

The global industrial Ethernet market is showing immense growth; mainly due to the emergence of cloud technologies and growing popularity of connected devices. The automation is one major trend driving the companies to implement smart factory techniques using industrial ethernet and this in turn is fuelling the market growth. Companies these days are moving their business to cloud and data centers which requires secure, faster and reliable connection by implementing proper protocol.


According to a recent study report published by Market Research Future, The global market of Industrial Ethernet is booming and expected to gain prominence over the forecast period. The market is projected to demonstrate a spectacular growth by 2023 with a striking CAGR during the anticipated period (2017 – 2023). Industrial ethernet is the use of ethernet cable in the industrial application to provide real time control over the network communication. The major factor driving the growth of industrial ethernet market is due to the advancements in industrial internet of things (IIoT) and connected devices. Industrial IoT refers to connected network of devices, with sensors, data analytics, and cloud infrastructure helping to connect the imbalanced infrastructure and reducing the operating cost. It also allows real time flow of information across the production value chain by minimizing the unnecessary breakdowns.


On the other hand, lack of technical expertise and lack of determinism in Ethernet networks are some of the factors hindering the growth of industrial ethernet market. Also, difficulty of transferring the old systems to a new protocol is one major factor hindering the growth of industrial ethernet market. This makes the management more complex and network performance becomes highly critical, which may hamper the market growth.


The global Industrial Ethernet Market is expected to reach approximately USD 40.6 Billion by 2023 growing at a 12.20% CAGR over the forecast period 2017-2023.


Major Key Players:

Some of the key players of Industrial Ethernet market include Beckhoff Automation (Germany), Cisco Systems, Inc (U.S.), Rockwell Automation, Inc (U.S.), Schneider Electric SE (U.S.), ABB Group (Switzerland), Belden Incorporated(U.S.), Bosch Rexroth AG (Germany), ACS Motion Control Ltd (Israel), and General Electric Company (U.S.)
