Article Type: News From: Assembly Automation, Volume 28, Issue 3

The wireless sensors market has been an under-performer, especially when considering the expectations and hype that had been created. Europe in particular has been very conservative. However, the market is seen to be at the point of inflection and poised to leap forward. With increasing efforts to standardise wireless sensing technology and active participation from automation solution providers across all segments, wireless sensors are set to revolutionise field data acquisition. Industrial and building sensing along with wireless utility meters are the main drivers of growth. Read free strategic insights at:

“The European wireless sensors market will eventually take off on a growth path; however it is unrealistic to expect wireless sensors to replicate what mobile phones did to the telephony market. Wireless sensors should complement existing systems and provide the additional value. Greater access to field data and visible financial benefits are the only ways which could ensure a role for wireless sensors in the global rush for automation”, says Venkatesan Iyengar, Research Associate for Frost & Sullivan’s Measurement & Instrumentation group.

The briefing is based upon ongoing European wireless sensors market analysis. The report provides an insight into the dynamics guiding this market, and includes market challenges, drivers, restraints and avenues of opportunity for growth. Highlights of the briefing include market dynamics and trends across key application segments.
