Industrial Communication Market Overview

The global industrial communication market size was estimated at USD 22.6 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 38.7 billion by 2032, growing with a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecasted period of 2022 to 2032.

Industrial communication systems are communication protocols that have a set of rules used for data exchange between various automation systems and related equipment's. These systems increase the productivity, efficiency, and accuracy and systems allow integration of data networks that are highly futuristic.

Currently, industrial communication is used for diverse and wide-ranging technology which includes software, services and components such as memory, power supply devices, connectors, communication interfaces, LED Displays, controllers, processors, etc. and also includes wired and wireless communication systems between devices.

IC is the key to greater productivity for any organization as it helps the enterprise in controlling machines and entire production line, monitor modern traffic systems and control power distribution. It enables the transfer of large amounts of data in real-time and with minimum delay, operate in an energy efficient manner and connect a large number of individual devices with security along with several other functions.

The industrial communication market is projected to experience rapid growth at a robust CAGR in the near future.

Industrial Communication Market Drivers

The growth of this market is attributed towards major relying factors which include; the rising demand for wireless networks and IIOT, widespread adoption of Industry 4.0 revolution, growing adoption of advanced communication protocols among industries, growing need for scalable, faster, reliable, and interoperable communication protocols, rise in number of initiatives by government and other regulatory bodies to assist industrial automation, persistent rise in machine-to-machine communication, increase in use of digital twin to safely monitor smart manufacturing operations and the growing need for interconnectivity between various devices and sharing of data etc.

Additionally, as digitalization is increasing, the need for effective communication technology also propels. The earlier communication protocols are not able to cope up with the explosion of digital data and latency-sensitive application. To address this, organizations are shifting toward more advanced and flexible industrial ethernet protocols which provide low deterministic and latency responses. These protocols also provide a flexible number of nodes and flexible network topology in the system, making them ideal for industrial communication application.

Moreover, growing number of end-user industries such as aerospace, transportation and automotive, defense, paper, cement, electrical and electronics, energy and power, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, food and beverages, mining, glass, fabrication or engineering, water and wastewater, and chemicals and fertilizers will benefit the market for industrial communication, thereby driving the market globally.

Furthermore, several advantages to the implementation of industrial communication such as the increase in the efficiency of the communication protocol, as well as the automation of industrial processes scales the market as well as the usage and preference of standardized wireless technologies such as Bluetooth technology and wireless WLAN which contribute towards growth.

However, factors such as various threats and risks associated with data and cyber security, the presence of traditional communication technology and harsh industrial environment, lack of standardization in industrial communication protocols and interfaces are expected to hinder the market growth.
