IoT in manufacturing has low awareness – but wireless sensors could change that
Though the IoT market for the manufacturing sector is still nascent, the benefits are there to be seen – and a new report from iGR argues the use of wireless sensors could help out.
Device sensors on the equipment on the factory floor can provide a huge amount of valuable data for manufacturers that can be channelled through corporate systems to offer substantial benefits via data analytics. Though these benefits are known, adoption is still low in the sector.
Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR, said: “Several key drivers, such as decreased costs and increased throughput and yields, may prompt more manufacturers to deploy IoT solutions. Therefore, over the next five years, iGR expects a growing number of wireless IoT sensors to be used by the manufacturing industry."
iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry, has made available a new market study for the period 2015–2020, which provides insight on the use of IoT for the manufacturing industry while providing a projection covering the number of wireless IoT sensors used in the US manufacturing industry.
