This market research study identifies ABB, Emerson Electric, Rockwell Automation, Siemens, and Texas Instruments as the leading players in the global industrial PROFIBUS market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by solution (PROFIBUS PA, PROFIBUS DP, PROFIdrive, and PROFIsafe), by end-user (power industry, water and wastewater industry, oil and gas industry, automotive industry, and other industries), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global industrial PROFIBUS market

Industry 4.0 is a concept that signifies the application of IIoT in industries and the automation of industries. The adoption of smart manufacturing techniques enables the production of high-quality goods at a reduced cost by enhancing the industrial processes in terms of speed, flexibility, and efficiency. Research analysis on the global industrial process field bus (PROFIBUS) market identifies that the high adoption of industry 4.0 will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. The adoption of industry 4.0 boosts the demand for industrial network standards such as PROFIBUS because they enhance the industrial processes by offering a safer communication of data. Countries such as the US, Canada, Germany, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Italy, and France are focusing on the advancement of industries. This in turn, will further boost the adoption rate of PROFIBUS. Technavio's market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of close to 6% by 2021.

In terms of geography, EMEA contributed to the maximum market shares during 2016 due to the presence of many industries such as oil and gas, power, and automotive in the region. The reduction in oil prices is compelling companies in the oil and gas industry to reduce their costs and maintain their leadership by investing in brownfield projects. This in turn, will boost the scope for the industrial PROFIBUS market in this region during the forecast period.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The industrial PROFIBUS market is fragmented due to the presence of many local, regional, and international players. Vendors in this marketspace develop and offer products specific to the industry because these modules are used for special purposes.
