Industrial Communication Market Size to exceed $160bn by 2025

  • Published Date: May 31, 2019

Industrial Communication Market size is set to exceed USD 160 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution is driving the industrial communication market. Over the past five years, IIoT has emerged as one of the most disruptive technology. It is transforming industrial process and automating operation across several industry verticals including automotive, manufacturing, energy, oil & gas, healthcare, and transportation. These industry verticals collectively account for more than two-thirds of the world’s economy. As the market dynamics are changing and industries are evolving toward an integrated digital-human workforce, IIoT will play a vital role in redefining the new phase of industrialization.

Ethernet IP will grow at a CAGR of over 12% during the forecast period. The large-scale adoption of the protocol throughout the manufacturing architecture is the primary factor supporting the growth of the industrial communication market. As digitalization across the industry verticals is increasing, organizations are shifting from legacy communication systems toward advanced ethernet protocols to cope up with the changing communication requirements. This is encouraging the adoption of ethernet IP protocol.
