Synopsis:

Adoption of wireless sensor network (WSN) technologies is driving growth for the industrial Internet of Things. Today’s WSN and associated cloud technologies provide the key elements for the industrial IoT: multi-year battery-powered wireless nodes, IP addressability, fieldbus tunneling and cloud-based provisioning and management systems.

Short range wireless mesh technologies such as WirelessHART and ISA100.11a as well as WiFi, Bluetooth and proprietary solutions will make up the majority of the market over the next five years but adoption of Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies such as LoRa, Sigfox, LTE-M1 and NB1 will increase even faster.

ON World’s 2017 survey on WSN and IoT with 180+ industrial automation professionals was completed in collaboration with the International Society of Automation (ISA). The survey found steady growth for the wireless mesh standards but there is also a strong awareness and early adoption of LPWAN solutions. Satisfaction with WSN solutions has increased overall but improvements are needed for battery life, costs, system integration and network range
.

The survey found that 2 in 3 of all respondents and 4 in 5 of those targeting process automation markets have deployed at least some wireless mesh nodes.

For process automation, WirelessHART has the largest market share but ISA100.11a adoption increased 67% over the past two years largely due to its flexible time scheduling, software tunneling and support for star and mesh topologies. These features are especially important for growing wireless applications such as gas detection, steam trap monitoring as well as oil and gas wellsite remote monitoring
.

LPWAN technologies are disrupting industrial IoT markets with cloud connected, 10-year battery-powered wireless sensors and asset trackers that can communicate up to 30 kilometers. Two in 5 of the survey respondents are researching or developing LPWAN solutions
.

For the past decade, ON World has conducted market research on industrial wireless sensing and IoT markets based on thousands of in-depth phone interviews across the whole industrial IoT value chain.

In this report, we cover the global market for industrial wireless sensing and tracking in 12 market segments including 5-year market size forecasts; analysis of 100+ companies; an extensive technology review; as well as the results of our recently completed survey on industrial wireless and IoT adoption trends, fastest growing applications, preferred standards and wireless protocols, needed innovations and satisfaction with current systems.

Primary Research:

220+ phone interviews and surveys with the following:
industrial end users, systems integrators, automation vendors, sensor manufacturers, component suppliers, software and service providers.
