Industrial Ethernet Market size worth over $120 Bn by 2027

  • Published Date: September 8, 2021

Industrial Ethernet Market size is set to surpass USD 120 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Surging need for improved technology and exploration of innovative methods to build a network for utilization of energy and electricity for industrial applications in likely to fuel the industry growth. Moreover, extensive penetration of IoT devices globally, is further supporting the market expansion.

Increasing demand across industry verticals to improvise network infrastructure flexibility is expected to augment the uptake of industrial ethernet components

The organization-wide need to boost network flexibility is set to enhance the ethernet business growth. To ensure adequate interconnection across systems in the automotive sector, OEMs are integrating more computer-based systems, interfaces, and applications. This raises the cost, complexity, and weight of wiring harnesses, making them the third heaviest and most expensive component in cars. Industrial ethernet can significantly reduce the complexity and cost of wiring in the automotive by providing a single network for connecting all the system via a central switch.
