Commenting on the report, an analyst from Reports team said: The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is rising popularity of PoE switches. PoE will have important implications on industrial applications. It offers the potential for economical standards based on high-performance industrial network, which is far beyond what is available today. The possibility of combining signal and power in one Ethernet cable connection will contribute to the already-rapid transition to Ethernet-based industrial control systems.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increased acceptance of Ethernet in the process automation sector. The use of industrial Ethernet was slow in the process automation sectors such as chemicals, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals. Many applications in these sectors require redundant structures. The reaction and switching times are in seconds and much slower than required in process automation. For example, many applications in the oil and gas industry require redundant structures. Although Ethernet provide redundancy solutions like spanning tree, the reaction time is not completely appropriate for process automation solutions, which require less than 100 milliseconds repeatability and response rate.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is competition from fieldbus network. Fieldbus networks are used to control and connect industrial machinery and instruments to a central control system, which is usually a DCS. Types of protocols include PROFIBUS, Modbus, DeviceNet, CC-Link, CAN/CANOpen, and actuator sensor-interface (AS-i). Fieldbus networks continue to be the dominant industrial network protocol across the global process and discrete industries.

About Unmanaged Industrial Ethernet Switches

Ethernet switches used in industrial settings are different from commercial switches. Industrial Ethernet switches are designed for environments that are unfavorable to commercial switches. This can include environments with extreme temperatures, high vibrations, and several electric noises. Commercial Ethernet switches are designed to meet enterprise electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirement. Most industrial switches are designed to meet stringent industrial EMC requirements. In addition, industrial Ethernet switches have a much higher mean time to failure and mean time to repair than commercial switches. Implementation of unmanaged Ethernet switch is governed in the applications of Ethernet devices communication with industrial PC or a network printer, this modulates uninterrupted communication between the devices.
