Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) - Total Available Market

Publish Date

Five Year Market Analysis and Technology Forecast through 2019

​How Many Industrial Automation Devices Are Available for Connection to the Industrial Internet of Things?

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and its potential to transform production operations is one of the hottest current topics in manufacturing.  Along with Industrie 4.0, IT/OT convergence, and Smart Manufacturing, the IIoT is cited as the latest means for making manufacturing production more flexible, more cost effective, and more responsive to changes in market demand.

Not surprisingly, numerous market forecasts attempt to quantify the potential inherent in the Internet of Things (IoT), promising that billions of “things” or devices, worth trillions of dollars, will soon be connected.
This report answers a different but equally important question: how many industrial automation devices are and will be available for incorporation into the IIoT?  Drawing on ARC’s 30 years of quantifying the market for industrial control devices, this research assesses the potential IIoT market from the realistic perspective of the number of installed and shipped devices that can potentially connect to the IIoT.  This study specifically focuses on connected devices used in manufacturing production, and excludes connected end devices such as automobiles, jet engines, or televisions.

Migration toward the IIoT represents the next step in a connectivity evolution that has been taking place in manufacturing for decades.  What new challenges will suppliers face as the IIoT takes hold?

• Will the IIoT generate absolute growth in shipments of automation devices?
• What is the size of the potential retrofit market vs. new product shipments?
• Which market segments represent the largest available market?
• Which specific device types within each segment represent the most potential?
• What single category of automation products will be the earliest adopter?
