Market Overview

The enterprise mobility in manufacturing market is expected to register a CAGR of 22.9% over the forecast period (2020 - 2025). After the shutdown of 2G and the rapid advancement of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), manufacturing establishments turned towards mobility solutions for help. Mobility solution in case of the manufacturing sector is very useful as it can monitor several parameters remotely.

  • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has accelerated the use-cases of enterprise mobility in manufacturing. IoT devices automatically monitor development cycles and manage warehouses as well as inventories. With the help of technologies like Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, industrial Big Data analytics, and cybersecurity, the IIoT is delivering uncompromised levels of efficiency and performance to its users. As a result, this is changing the way people communicate and operate in a manufacturing environment.
  • Appropriate authentication needs to be in place within all mobile channels, with access to the corporate network controlled at the correct levels. This will also involve the management of separate user identities in certain cases. Enterprise applications must then be secured to prevent data leakage when being used on personal devices. Thus, security vulnerability is the factor discouraging the market growth.

Scope of the Report

The modern manufacturing establishments are generally spread over vast areas. Manufacturing environments such as oil & gas refineries, metal processing industries, and automobile industries operate in insanely large spaces. People working in such manufacturing environment often depend on mobile communication for multiple purposes.
