Industrial Ethernet Market Size

Industrial Ethernet Market size surpassed USD 50 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at over 15% CAGR from 2023 to 2032.

Industrial Ethernet Market

Ethernet has low-cost implementation and enables high-speed data transmission making it an attractive networking technology for the industrial sector. The rising penetration of innovative & automated solutions is fueling the demand for ethernet technology. Many large-scale enterprises are adopting high computing & processing devices which are then connected over a cloud infrastructure via Radio Access Network (RAN). This has resulted in the cumulative adoption of industrial ethernet to achieve industry 4.0 networking, thereby improving the market scenario.

Stringent standards on utilization of ethernet may restrain industry progression

Strict regulations & protocols on the implementation of ethernet are set to hamper the industrial ethernet market growth over the next ten years. Companies are required to follow a rigid set of instructions and protocols when implementing an industrial ethernet solution for successful integration of the system. These standards and conventions increase the cost of manufacturing and boost the complexity of the network, thus hindering the adoption of ethernet cables and solutions.

Industrial Ethernet Market Analysis

Germany Industrial Ethernet Market Size By Switch

The switches hardware segment has subsegments that are bifurcated as- up to 1 Gbps, 1-2.5 Gbps, 2.5- 10 Gbps, and above 10 Gbps. The industrial ethernet switches market with 2.5-10 Gbps capacity is slated to register gains at over 15% from 2023 to 2032. The segment is foreseen to gain positive attention due to the ten times the speed of 10 gigabit compared to the traditional gigabit ethernet switches. They ensure real-time connectivity across various network devices in the manufacturing facilities with their enhanced bandwidth and resilient connectivity to external interferences such as broken connection and lag time.

The hardware segment is anticipated to hold nearly 75% of the industrial ethernet market share in 2032 as a result of the extensive adoption of industrial ethernet products such as switches, gateways, connectors, processors, and controllers. These hardware components aid in structuring networked machines and integrating them within the existing corporate network, increasing product adoption.

The PROFINET segment is poised to witness more than 20% growth through 2032. The PROFINET protocol provides advanced features that support the transmission of time-critical information between input/output devices as well as host computers in the industrial environment, proliferating market growth.

The switches segment captured around 30% of the industrial ethernet market share in 2022 owing to the wide application of industrial Ethernet products for industrial verticals as they offer immense benefits compared to commercial switches. Specifications associated with ethernet switches including shock, temperature, and vibration comply effectively with the connected equipment such as HMI, Ethernet I/O, PLC, etc., fostering demand for Ethernet switches.

The industrial ethernet demand in the aerospace & defense segment is estimated to progress at 10% growth rate between 2023 and 2032 as Ethernet technology ensures proper data transfer across different modern avionics systems equipped with advanced sensors monitored through data acquisition units.
