The global enterprise mobility in manufacturing market is expected to register a CAGR of 22.89% over the forecast period of 2018–2023.
The modern manufacturing establishments are generally spread over vast areas. Manufacturing environments such as oil & gas refineries, metal processing industries, and automobile industries operate in insanely large spaces. People working in such manufacturing environment often depend on mobile communication for multiple purposes. Previously most of the communications, instructions, and feedback were sent and received on cheaper 2G bands or radio interface.
However, after the shutdown of 2G and the rapid advancement of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), such manufacturing establishments turned towards mobility solutions for help. Mobility solution in case of the manufacturing sector is very useful as it can monitor several parameters remotely. Data from mobile devices can give access to real-time location, performance statistics, and machine data (in case of inspections) directly to the management without any delay.
The industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has taken factory automation to the next level of the industrial revolution (Industry 4.0). Companies are increasingly adopting IIoT solutions to benefit from a broad range of advantages provided by it. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), also known as the Industrial Internet, brings together brilliant machines, advanced analytics, and people at work. It is the ultimate network of several devices connected by communications technologies that enable the companies’ to prepare systems that can monitor, collect, exchange, analyze, and deliver valuable information used to make decisions by the management.
With the help of technologies like Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, industrial Big Data analytics, and cyber security, the IIoT is delivering uncompromised levels of efficiency and performance to its users. As a result, this is changing the way people communicate and operate in a manufacturing environment. To avoid the boundaries caused by distance, manufacturing establishments are using mobility solutions increasingly. Each new iteration of the product is evolving to be much smarter and more compatible with IIoT standards leading to new opportunities in the market.
The major players include Good Technology (Blackberry), MobileIron, Inc., VMware, Citrix Systems, Inc., Microsoft Corporation, Cisco Systems, Inc., and McAfee, Inc., among others.
