Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks (IWSN): A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 19, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – The manufacturing industry is currently challenged by factors such as volatile raw material prices, globalization-driven issues such as supply chain fragmentation, stringent regulations, and growing pressure on profit margins. To remain competitive under the current scenario requires focus on improving efficiencies and achieving operational excellence. Manufacturing plants are therefore investing significant resources into modernizing production processes and infrastructure with advanced technologies and concepts like robotics, and use of sensors for process control and automation. Automation technologies in this regard are currently in the spotlight given their ability to enable plant supervisors, managers, engineers and workers to monitor and manage plant operations in a more efficient and resourceful manner. Wired automation technologies, against this backdrop, are increasingly being replaced by wireless technologies like RF, Zigbee, GSM, WI-Fi and Bluetooth for achieving remote control operation. Industrial Wireless Sensor Network (IWSN), with its ability to measure various parameters in industrial processes and communicate the same with plant operators, is steadily emerging as a robust tool that enables efficient and seamless operation of a manufacturing facility.
Leveraging its unique ability to blend with legacy plant systems to establish full-scale, reliable monitoring & control strategies, IWSN enables manufacturers to monitor and measure various production critical parameters such as temperature, humidity, lighting, movement, and energy consumption among others. IWSN also provides a flexible and reliable approach for environmental sensing, equipment condition monitoring, and process & service monitoring, while bestowing manufacturers with advantages such as convenience and reduced costs, ease of maintenance, and superior performance as compared to wired sensor infrastructure. Adoption of IWSN is rising in numerous sectors such as oil & gas, refineries & petrochemicals, power, food processing, mining & metals, pharmaceutical & health care, pulp & paper, textiles, chemicals, and automotive, among others. The evolution of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), where all mechanical, electrical and electronics devices and equipment are brought under the digital fold, is also expected to spur the growth of smart robotics and sensor networks. Rising use of wearable devices such as connected accessories, smart watches, and smart glasses in industrial environments, is also expected to positively influence growth in the IWSN market. In addition, the market is witnessing the use of cost-effective cloud services for IWSN deployments, which is expected to infuse additional interest in IWSN among small and medium-sized manufacturers.
