Overview

Industrial Internet of Things to Spur Market Growth
The prospect of adding wireless devices to the process automation architecture is compelling due to the potential business benefits and tangible operational improvements.  Owner-operators are increasingly aware of the potential to apply wireless to key challenges, such as improving process performance, reliability, and efficiency; and easing regulatory compliance.
 
One trend that has major implications for the adoption of wireless technology is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).  Because wireless is a key enabling technology for connectivity, it will allow the proliferation of sensors at the device level necessary to funnel data to the IIoT.
 
Many initial applications for wireless devices in the process industries are focused on adding incremental points to improve control strategies or meet safety or environmental regulations.  In many cases, these installations are driven by the ability to take measurements that were previously unattainable, often because the target is in a difficult-to-reach location or mobile.
 
As wireless device adoption accelerates, the market emphasis will move from these incremental point additions to more comprehensive wireless installations.
 
Strategic Issues
The process industries represent one of the most conservative, risk-averse market segments, yet many customers perceive the value proposition for wireless devices - especially now that standard industrial protocols are available.  THe study answers key strategic questions, such as:
 
  • Will wireless be used for process control or just SCADA and data acquisition?
  • RF standards and industry concentrations vary by region. How will this impact potential growth?
  • How will concerns over device power and security impact the prospects for wireless adoption?
  • What are the prospects for standards convergence?
