Sponsored by the Germany government, industry 4.0 is constantly contributing to the adoption of the industrial Internet of things (IIoT) in the manufacturing sector. The increased use of the industrial Internet of things can be seen in machines which can start off maintenance processes autonomously as well as machines which can predict failures. With further development of IIoT, security concerns are rising. Cybercrimes are one of the biggest threats that the world is facing, and any device or component connected to the IIoT can be a potential victim of the security breach. The existing inferior cybersecurity measures are failing massively paving way for IIoT shields. Security architectures are moving towards software-based or device-agnostic designs which are directly contributing to the growth of the industrial Internet of things shields market. As of 2018, IIoT shields market rested at a revenue of around $2.35 billion, which is going to grow further at a profitable CAGR of 18.65% over the forecast period 2019-2025.

The Industrial Internet of things is developing regularly due to support from countries across the globe in order to attain better productivity with an efficient performance by reducing operational cost. The IIoT market is expanding regularly and is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 24.4% during the forecast period 2018–2023. Thus, with the growth of the parent market, there will be an increasing concern for security, which will result in the multiplication of the IIoT shields market revenue.

· Flourishing Agriculture Industry to Give Impeccable Returns to the APAC Industrial Internet of Things Market Players –

Agriculture is one of the most important sectors in Asia. According to the reports of APAC Agrifood, APAC has a population count of 4.5 billion and the food increases needed to suffice for the people is 70%. The implementation of IIoT is inevitable as they help in increasing productivity by self-driven tractors, harvesters, and others. By analyzing the components in liquid through the deployed sensors, industrial IIoT ensures that spraying is done in the right amounts. These developing low-power and reliable harvesting technologies are creating huge opportunities for secure and efficient communication with IIoT shield mechanisms, resulting in the upliftment of the APAC industrial Internet of things shield market in the upcoming years.

·  Expanding APAC IIoT Shields Market to Bring an Impact on Oil and Gas Production Across Countries –

Lately, the oil and gas industry had hit a roadblock due to the shortage of skilled labors, and thus, the production cost is rising annually. The environmental standards are equally adding up to the problems and affecting the industry in terms of investments. The reports of the International Association of Oil &Gas Producers, Asia Pacific produced around 23% oil and 79% gas in 2018. The aforementioned challenges have made the application of industrial IoT a necessary as the technology brings a number of advantages to the table. From safety management, leak detection to facility management, predictive maintenance, everything operates on IIoT. With the implementation of IIoT, the application of Industrial IoT shields becomes inevitable as it offers embedded device level security and control across the entire IoT chain. Thus, with the growth of IIoT in the oil and gas industry, the IIoT shields market is also going to witness further expansion in the next years.

Industrial IoT Shields Market: Key Application

One of the major end users of industrial IoT shields technology is the manufacturing industry. The gradual shift towards advanced and secured manufacturing techniques across the world is constantly adding up to the implementation of industrial IoT shields technology in the manufacturing industry. The automation market is slowly making its way into the manufacturing sector across various industry verticals, as it gives an increased production rate with decreased labor investment in a secure way. The industrial and factory automation market has collected revenue avenue of around $5 billion in 2018, and the demand for the same is projected to grow at a notable CAGR of 12% during the forecast period 2019-2025. So, the growth of industrial and factory automation is set to benefit the industrial IoT shields market vendors in the upcoming years. The implementation of IIoT in manufacturing industry is expected to grow at a profitable CAGR of 20.88%, paving multifarious opportunities to the end-user market vendors.

IIoT Shields Market Growth Drivers –

Industrial IoT shields make easy for system integrators to fill the security gap and ensure rapid deployment. Asia, Latin America, and other countries are facing the need to fabricate quality products to compete in the global market which is making way to the adoption of advanced industrial IoT shields techniques quickly worldwide.

· Implementation of 5G Across the Globe to Elevate IIoT Shields Market Revenue –

5G is an enabler for the critical Fourth Industrial Revolution. The countries that are looking to capitalize through future technology, 5G is the key for them. Therefore, with the emergence of 5G, global IP traffic is surely to triple in 2017-2022. The Internet of things, which utilizes low-latency networks as well as ultra-high-speed, will require capacities enabled by 5G.
