産業用イーサネットは、産業プラントの過酷な環境で使用できるよう設計されており、製造業の様々な工程で広く利用されております。世界の産業用イーサネット市場は、2016年から2020年の期間中、およそ8%のCAGR (複合年間成長率) で拡大することが見込まれています。
This industry research report identifies Beckoff Automation, Cisco, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Siemens as the key vendors in the global industrial Ethernet market. This report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by technology (Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, Modbus TCP/IP, POWERLINK, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).
Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global industrial Ethernet market will grow steadily during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of more than 15% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the rise in implementation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) as one of the primary growth factors for this market. IIoT is basically the network of a number of devices equipped with sensors, industrial equipment, big data analytics, and cloud infrastructure that helps in connecting the disparate infrastructure and in reducing operating expenses. Additionally, IIoT also allows real-time information flow across the manufacturing value chain and helps in reducing maintenance costs and eliminating breakdowns. As a result, a number of industries will start employing IIoT in their industrial production and manufacturing processes in the next few years. Since the open networks such as Ethernet offer several advantages over dedicated automation networks like greater bandwidth and constant upgradation, there will be a constant demand for Ethernet cables from various industrial sectors for the implementation of IIoT.
Robot and machine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are constantly focusing on employing industrial networks to connect their controllers, distributed I/O, and human machine interfaces within a machine or a robot. This requirement to facilitate efficient connections among devices will lead to the increased adoption of Ethernet networks as they offer several advantages such as easy implementation for remote connectivity, increased connectivity, and better performance ratio. This use of Ethernet among machine and robot OEMs will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the coming years.
The market is characterized by the presence of several diversified Ethernet vendors. Vendors usually compete on the basis of product portfolio, knowledge of customer applications, installed base, distribution network, quality of products, global presence, and product pricing. As all vendors equally compete to establish their presence in the market, the competitive environment in the market appears to be intense. Also, the growth of the vendors completely depends on the demand from the end-users.
The other prominent vendors in the market are ABB, ACS Motion Control, Advanced Motion Control, Alta Industrial Motion, B&R Automation, Belden, Bosch Rexroth, Eaton, Endress+Hauser, GE, Hitachi, Honeywell International, IDEC, Omron, Parker Hannifin, Yaskawa Electric, and Yokogawa.
Ethernet/IP offers networking tools for deploying standard Ethernet for industrial automation applications to enable Internet and enterprise connectivity and is by-far the best network for simultaneously connecting several devices and industrial computers. It provides a flexible network architecture that is compatible with Ethernet installation options such as fiber, copper, copper ring, and wireless. Analysts estimate that this market segment will dominate the market by 2020 and will also post an impressive revenue of almost USD 894 million.
This market study estimates that EMEA will dominate this industry throughout the forecast period and will account for more than 35% shares of the industrial Ethernet market by 2020. This mainly attributes to the higher adoption rate of megatrends such as Industry 4.0 by several industries in the region especially the automotive sector. Moreover, the need to reduce operational costs and to improve links between the factory floor and enterprise network management will also provide for the growth of the market in this region.
