Status : Published March 2021

The Global 5G Industrial IoT Market was valued at USD 527.4 million in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 68.7% during the forecast period till 2028.However, without the COVID-19 impact, the global 5G industrial IoT market was valued at USD XX.X million in 2020.

An industrial IoT system is a complex architecture consisting of sensors, communications, bigdata storage, edge computing, and advanced analytics among its disciplines. Although the implementation of 5G may be only one of many evolutionary steps, it is critical in the development of new industrial IoT applications. Growth in data traffic due to increasing number of IoT devices across manufacturing industries, increasing demand for high reliability and low latency networks in the manufacturing sector, growth in a number of M2M connections across manufacturing industries, and rising need for preventive maintenance for critical equipment are the key factors in driving the growth of the 5G industrial IoT market.

Further, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced manufacturing companies to implement remote working facilities to ensure business continuity. Remote working across wide geographical areas requires a high-speed network, such as 5G, to ensure better connectivity and performance. Manufacturing companies are also pushing hard to switch to predictive analytics-driven processes in order to maximize their business operations.

5G industrial IoT solutions can help improve the analytics process, allowing manufacturers to impose quality checks and thresholds across production lines in order to achieve the best outcomes.

Global 5G Industrial IoT Market, By Component

Based on component, the market is divided into hardware, solutions, and services. Among these, the hardware segment is expected to dominate the global 5G industrial IoT market. The growing number of IoT devices in manufacturing industries, as well as the demand for networks with high reliability and low latency, are driving the growth of the hardware segment.

The hardware segment of the 5G industrial IoT consists of 5G modules, gateways, sensors, and chips. 5G IoT module is projected to record higher growth due to the growing demand for 5G industrial IoT. Suppliers are working on a variety of other developments, including device modifications that reduce device size and strategies for integrating with other modules, in addition to 5G modules.

The services segment is projected to register higher growth rate due to increased monitoring and security requirements, improved regulatory compliances, enhanced productivity, and improved data integrity while meeting strict Service-Level Agreements (SLAs).

Global 5G Industrial IoT Market, By Organization Size

By organization size, the global 5G industrial IoTmarket is segregated into SMEs and large enterprises. Among these, the large enterprises segment will capture higher market share during the forecast period. Large enterprises are more equipped than SMEs to implement 5G industrial IoT products and services. The high adoption rate is due to affordability and large enterprises' economies of scale, which allow them to take advantage of 5G industrial solutions and services.

Global 5G Industrial IoT Market, By Application

By application, the global 5G industrial IoTmarket is segregated into predictive maintenance, business process optimization, asset tracking and management, logistics and supply chain management, real-time workforce tracking and management, automation control and management, emergency and incident management and business communication.

Among these, the real-time workforce tracking and management segment is projected to register higher growth in the market. Manufacturing companies are using real-time workforce monitoring and management to streamline their processes and identify, deploy, verify, manage, and communicate with their employees in real time. The combination of 5G and an IoT-enabled connected worker solution can bring monitoring to the next level, making workplaces more efficient, transparent, safe, and productive.

Global 5G Industrial IoT Market, By End User

By end user, the global 5G industrial IoT market is segregated into process industries and discrete industries. Among these, the discrete industries segment is projected to hold a higher market share during the forecast period. Automobiles, furniture, toys, smartphones, and aircraft are examples of discrete industries, which are concerned with the manufacture and production of distinct units. IoT-enabled smart connected products offer a way to expand product functionality and create extra value for consumers in discrete industries. By providing greater connectivity across IoT devices, 5G industrial IoT solutions are expected to improve the operational efficiency of the discrete manufacturing process.

Global 5G Industrial IoT Market, By Region

By region, the global 5G industrial IoTmarket is segmented as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East& Africa, and South America. The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global 5G Industrial IoT market. One of the most important markets for connected devices is APAC. High-speed, low-latency networks, such as 5G, are required to support such a large number of connected devices. China, Australia, Japan, and South Korea are the leading APAC countries to launch 5G-related initiatives.

Asian telecom service providers, suppliers, and government agencies are all competing for the leading position in 5G research and development. The adoption of new technologies and advances in the manufacturing industries are undergoing rapid changes in the region.

Some Recent Developments in the Global 5G Industrial IoT Market
