Market Overview

Need for Real-time Data and Workforce Mobility to Boost Penetration of Wireless Devices in Factory Automation

The wireless devices market across discrete industries is in its early stages of growth. The key drivers for wireless adoption are the need for real-time data, work force mobility, and ease of installation and commissioning. However, concerns such as reliability, security, and interoperability are hindering wireless adoption by end-users. Monitoring and alerting are the key application areas of wireless devices across a range of industries. Most end-users are reluctant to employ wireless devices for critical applications due to prevailing technical issues. To realise the available potential for wireless deployment across discrete industries, wireless vendors should attempt to completely understand the end-users' perspective on wireless technology.

The wireless devices market generated revenues of $75.2million in 2008 growing at 13.5 per cent over 2007.

Factors likely to restrain market growth to a certain extent include concerns over reliability and security, end-user conservatism, lack of awareness, high capital expenditure, and restricted bandwidth. To overcome these prevailing challenges, wireless vendors should create awareness about wireless technology and educate end-users on different wireless applications. Efforts are being taken by wireless vendors to arrive at/settle on a uniform standard which will increase the penetration rate of wireless devices across end user industries. The market is estimated to reach $132.8 million in 2012 growing at a compound annual growth rate of 15.3 per cent between 2008 and 2012.
