Industrial wireless sensor networking (WSN) continues to expand into new markets with multi-protocol devices, maturing standards and ubiquitous IoT cloud platforms. Unit shipments grew by 69% over the last two years due to a robust manufacturing sector and increased spending on oil and gas exploration and production.
Three WSN technology areas are covered in-depth in this report:
* Wireless mesh sensor networks
* Location based services
* Low power wide area networks
Applications for 802.15.4 and wireless mesh sensor networks continue to grow including equipment monitoring from offshore platforms, wireless gas detection, flood monitoring as well as solutions for agriculture, construction and factory automation. Location-based services is one of the fastest growing markets including low-cost proximity sensing with Bluetooth Low Energy, precision real-time location systems (RTLS) with ultra-wideband and a variety of remote monitoring and tracking of fixed and mobile assets using low power wide area networks (LPWAN).
This report is based on input from 200+ individuals including in-depth phone interviews with industrial WSN vendors, suppliers and service providers as well as an extensive survey completed in collaboration with the International Society of Automation (ISA) and the LoRa Alliances.
In 2023, revenues for WSN equipment and associated services for industrial automation, agriculture and construction will surpass $13 billion.
For the past 15 years, 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.
