Overview of the global industrial wireless sensor network (IWSN) market

Technavio’s industrial wireless sensor network (IWSN) market forecast report has predicted that the market will grow impressively during the predicted period and will post a CAGR of almost 15% by 2020. Operational efficiency comes as the key for the market players to sustain in the highly competitive industrial environment, which has induced industries across the globe to focus more on automation technologies. Automation enables industries to efficient monitor, control, and manage processes, and in turn, achieving operational efficiency. Automation is achieved by deploying industrial robots which help in maximizing productivity and also reducing manufacturing errors. Automation and industrial robots require a number of wireless sensors and the rise in demand for automation and robotics in industries will lead to the rise in demand for IWSNs.

Though the Americas currently dominate the market, the coming years will witness an exponential increase in the demand for IWSNs from APAC and this region will dominate the industry during the later years of the forecast period and will account for almost 34% of the total shares of the market by 2020. The presence of several manufacturing plants in China, the growth of the oil and gas, metals and mining, and aerospace industries in India, and the growth of the automotive industry will fuel the demand for wireless sensors networks from this region.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a large number of wireless sensor network companies, both large scale, and small scale and appears to be highly fragmented. The market is highly competitive, and the lack of technological standardization will further intensify the level of competition in the market. Vendors normally compete on the basis of their ability to provide user-friendly IWSNs that are technologically advanced and help end-user industries to maximize their productivity. Well-established players cater to the needs of multinational companies while the smaller regional or local players cater to the needs of the SMEs and small scale industries. The market is highly innovation-driven, and vendors are constantly increasing their investments in developing low-power and low-energy-consumption wireless sensors and also in enhancing the battery life of their wireless sensors.
