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
Users have embraced wireless technology in the plant, but could be taking it further. This study answers key strategic questions, such as: 

  • How will IIoT affect adoption of wire-less in the plant?
  • How will concerns over device power and security impact the prospects for wireless adoption?
  • Will security concerns inhibit deployment of internet-connected devices?
