Markets for Sensors in the Industrial Internet

This report identifies the main business opportunities for sensors resulting from Industrial Internet deployment.   This new study includes:
  • An analysis of current and future sensor requirements of the Industrial Internet and how new types of sensor products will emerge to meet these needs.  This assessment also analyzes the connectivity and standardization trends that NanoMarkets believes will be crucial to the market evolution of sensors for the Industrial Internet
  • An assessment of the changing data gathering requirements in major industries and how these will impact the need for sensors.  The networked sensor needs for both building automation and factory automation are discussed in detail in this report.  In addition, we focus on the specific requirements for Industrial Internet sensors in the automotive, aerospace, smart highways, electricity, and oil and gas sectors
  • Eight-year forecasts with breakouts by (1) types of sensors and (2) the industry sectors in which they are deployed.  Both value and volume numbers are included in these forecasts.  These forecasts take into consideration a variety of scenarios including regulatory and economic trends as well as how the deployment of Industrial Internets to smaller industrial facilities and common machine tools will impact the Industrial Internet sensor business
  • An analysis of the product/market strategies of sensor firms as well as those in the monitoring equipment and other related sectors with regard to Industrial Internet opportunities.  We also provide a list of the top six most influential firms in the emerging industrial Internet business.
We believe that this report will provide guidance to executives at sensor and monitoring firms that need to understand what the rise of the Industrial Internet will mean to them over the coming decade.  The report is targeted to business development and marketing managers and we also believe that it will prove valuable to the investment community looking at the latest developments in the sensor industry and the Internet-of-Things.

NanoMarkets Report Predicts Sensors for the Industrial Internet to Generate $20.1 billion in Revenue by 2019

Glen Allen, VA:  In a newly released report from NanoMarkets, the firm predicts that the value of Internet-connected sensors for industrial applications is expected to grow to $20.1 billion by 2019.  The report titled, “Markets for Sensors in the Industrial Internet” analyzes the markets for industrial internet sensors within manufacturing facilities, commercial and industrial real estate, the oil & gas industry, electricity grids, as well as in aerospace and smart roads and railroads. 
This report also identifies and quantifies where the opportunities are for makers of these Internet-connected industrial sensors, and provides eight-year forecasts for a variety of industrial sensors types including those that detect and measure: gas and chemicals, sound, motion, light touch/pressure and heat, as well as specialized sensors used in the smart grid.  The forecasts presented in this report are in both volume and value terms. 
In addition, the report contains an assessment of firms that are active in the Industrial Internet sensor business.  The companies covered in this report include: ABB, Alitalia, ARM, Bosch, BP, Chevron, Cisco, Eaton, Echelon, Federal Express, Freescale, GE, GM, Harley Davidson, Helsinki Bus, Honeywell, IBM, Intel, IUS, Landis + Gyr, Raytheon, Rolls-Royce, Schneider Electric, Shell, Siemens, Silver Spring Networks, Stanley, Texas Instruments, Toshiba and Virginia Smart Road.
From the report:
More than 90 percent of Industrial Internet sensor revenues currently come from the automation of commercial and industrial buildings. Energy cost savings can be improved significantly with the real time management of HVAC and lighting that Industrial Internets can provide.  The green building trend may also benefit Industrial Internets.  New kinds of heat sensors may be needed to meet net-zero energy (NZE) requirements with additional sensors to support automatic shading and venting for NZE buildings.  By 2019, sales of Industrial Internet sensors in the commercial/industrial building sector will reach $12.3 billion in 2019.
NanoMarkets also sees considerable potential for the Industrial Internet in the electricity grid, which we think will consume $6.3 billion by 2019.  Meanwhile, factory automation using the Industrial Internet is expected to account for another $1.5 billion by that year.   However, NanoMarkets believes that deployment of Industrial Internet sensors in these areas is being held back by user skepticism with regard to the reliability, latency and security that factories and power grids demand.
