An industrial communication network is the backbone for any automation system architecture as it can offer powerful means of data exchange, controllability and flexibility to connect to various devices. The use of digital communication networks in industries can also lead to improved end-to-end digital signal accuracy and integrity.

Communication networks like LAN (Local Area Network) or WAN (Wide Area Network) can communicate large amounts of data via limited number of channels. Whereas industrial networking enable implementing various communication protocols between field devices, digital controllers and several automation related software tools and external systems. Therefore modern industries have demonstrated increased adoption of industrial communication networks over traditional LAN and WAN. This has led to industrial communication market size depicting a substantial increase lately.

For instance, according to renowned automation conglomerate ABB, and one of the notable players in industrial communication market, the firm’s revenue increased by 5% to $7,395 million in 2018. This has been credited to the strong growth in robotics & motion, robust performance achieved from electrification products and a steady result owing to industrial automation.

Some of the trends that industrial communication market is being defined by are mentioned below:

  • Long-term application of industrial communication in the industrial automation sector

Growing demand for increased data processing speed will foster industrial communication market size in the automation sector. As industrial operations are becoming more complex and variable, the market has registered immense growth over recent years. Indeed, a greater number of network-based programmable controllers and mechanisms are required within modern industries to attain faster decisions and increased productivity and efficiency.

With network-based automation, companies can also attain increased saving in work force, energy, raw material, better control on product quality and enhanced plant availability and operational safety. In fact, the technology can help in raising the levels of process control & continuity with improved efficiency, eventually bringing potential production figures to the nominal plant capacity by cutting downtime, corrective maintenance and the lack of raw material supply to minimum.

With efficient real-time communication system like PROFIBUS-DP or PA, Fieldbus and more, distributed peripherals such as Input/output (I/O) modules, transducers, drives, valves and operational panels can also communicate with automation systems more accurately.

Thus, with the advent of the automated systems that are based on advanced industrial communication and technology, the automation sector will attain enhanced benefits in terms of maintenance, and increase plant productivity, further augmenting industrial communication market size.

  • S. to emerge as a pivotal revenue pocket for industrial communication market in the forthcoming years

Being a major producer of automation equipment, U.S. is anticipated to drive massive growth in industrial communication market. Citing International Trade Association (ITA) reports, the country is the leading producer of hardware components that are used in automated systems as well as a major supplier to manufacturing or production industries across the globe.

In fact, in 2015, U.S. exported nearly $10.5 billion worth of automation equipment to foreign markets, claims ITA. Sources suggest that supportive government policies and the presence of global automation players like General Electric, Honeywell, Rockwell, Emerson Electric and more will pave the way for industrialization in the region. Additionally, the increasing adoption of Industry 4.0 will boost the demand for the industrial communication technologies in the coming years, successfully proliferating U.S. industrial communication industry size.

  • Wireless communication technologies to enhance industrial operations

Advancements in wireless communication along with growing adoption of advanced tech-based devices will drive the industrial communication industry. The key advantage of wireless systems is that they can be installed in remote locations in an efficient and cost-effective manner. As battery-powered transmitters don’t require wired infrastructure or power supply, they can be installed across areas that are far away from power wiring and wired fieldbus.

They can also be installed in sites where setting up power and cabling systems would be dangerous or too expensive. This flexibility allows use of wireless in both Greenfield projects and ongoing Brownfield projects.

Owing to the low-power nature of Wireless HART devices, users can also operate such equipment for several years without replacing the battery. Moreover, engineering, procurement, and construction contractors and plant owners can increasingly shift to wireless communication technology as it is beneficial in terms of reducing physical fixed infrastructure, managing schedule risk and cost escalation, and reducing space requirements and weight.

According to reports, adopting wireless solutions have reduced commissioning time by 50% for some contractors. The technology further helped in streamlining the design and engineering process, maintaining project schedule and improving user’s ability to manage change on their project. The prominence of this technology is rather overt from the estimate that wireless charging market size is slated to cross $14 billion by 2024.

Moreover, with industry-leading process plants installing wireless infrastructure, industrial communication market size from the wireless communication protocol is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 22% over 2019-2025.

In a nutshell, it would not be incorrect to quote that industrial communication industry is likely to come up as a highly profitable vertical of the overall electronics cosmos. As per estimates, global industrial communication market size is anticipated to exceed USD 160 billion by 2025.
