Industrial Ethernet Switches Market Growth Continues as Strategic Challenges Escalate

​Connectivity and edge-to-cloud integration requirements at the “thin edge,” or network infrastructure tier, of digitally transformed architectures are escalating exponentially.  Concurrent evolutions in technology, standardization, and competitive landscape add to the opportunities and challenges faced by industrial Ethernet switch (IES) buyers and suppliers.

Continued advancements in Ethernet technology are expanding IES reach and capabilities.  Some of the most important developments include faster speeds, higher bandwidth, higher wattage PoE, and the prospect of standard real-time deterministic Ethernet.  Both industrial automation and infrastructure applications continue to generate growth prospects that exceed that of the overall automation marketplace.      

Supplier responses to these challenges and opportunities vary, with this latest update revealing further movement within the upper market share echelon.  Numerous competitors are focused on requirements in specific industry segments such as transportation, electric power T&D, and surveillance, but also in technology areas such as Gigabit Ethernet (GE), Time-sensitive Network (TSN), Industrial IoT, and network management, among others. 

Manufacturers are leveraging technological advancements to automate processes and improve business performance.  These capabilities enable pursuit of decentralized, even autonomous, operation by distributing communication away from central processors, enabling more direct communication between machines capable of controlling their own logic and initiating subsequent process steps.
