  • The asset management and performance monitoring use cases have the most published case studies. The top 10 use cases all strongly feature in the connected production and connected asset market areas.

The Cambashi IIoT Observatory also includes analysis of published case studies by industry application, for which the initial findings are:

  • Asset management and performance monitoring are the most popular use cases. They have the highest number of case studies in the process manufacturing and machinery industry sectors.
  • Connected production and connected assets have the most case studies for almost all the top 10 use cases. The exceptions are field service management, where connected products is the biggest area; and environmental monitoring, where connected city comes in second.
  • Most projects have been in the machinery and process manufacturing industries (based on case study analysis). Automotive comes in third, with a significant number of connected transportation case studies. The high-tech industry has the most connected supply chain and connected worker case studies.

Global oilfield chemical market expected to grow 5.1% by 2025

Growth opportunities exist for manufacturers developing customized product formulations and offering strong technical support, finds Frost & Sullivan. 

Frost & Sullivan’s latest analysis of the global oilfield chemical market reveals that the development of advanced, eco-friendly oilfield chemicals has paved the way for increased application use, premium prices and market growth. The discovery of new oil and gas fields across different regions along with shale gas and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) expansion activities will further augment growth prospects. Frost & Sullivan forecasts the global oilfield chemical market to account for $33.94 billion by 2025, with a steady compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% between 2018 and 2025.

Industrial hose market to grow by nearly $5B by 2024

The industrial hose market is likely to grow from $12.8 billion in 2019 to $17 billion by 2024, according to ResearchAndMarkets.com.

The growth of this market is mainly driven by factors such as increasing demand for robust industrial hoses in critical applications, growing infrastructure-related developments and rising demand for PVC material. Increasing demand for automobiles worldwide and modernization of agriculture processes are expected to create significant growth opportunities for players in the industrial hose market during the forecast period. However, the dearth of technical know-how of industrial hoses restrains the growth of the market.

High demand for natural rubber in various industrial segments provides growth opportunities for the industrial hose market. The automobile market is also anticipated to increase the demand for natural rubber production in Thailand and Indonesia. Natural rubber has unique physical and chemical properties, including susceptibility to vulcanization. Hence, increasing demand for natural rubber hoses in the agriculture, mining, construction and food processing industries is expected to provide ample opportunities for the industrial hose market.

Half of manufacturers experienced data breaches in past year, report finds

Half of manufacturing companies have fallen victim to at least one data breach during the past year, according to the 2019 Manufacturing and Distribution Report from professional services firm Sikich. Of the 50% of respondents who said their companies experienced data breaches, 11% said they had experienced major breaches. Still, executives believe their companies can thwart attacks. A majority (54%) said they are extremely or very confident in the ability of their companies to prevent or minimize the impact of data breaches.

The report found that many manufacturers — especially those with revenues under $500 million — neglect key cybersecurity preparedness efforts. Overall, less than 40% of these smaller companies perform cyber audits (38%), penetration testing (33%), security assessments of vendors (32%) and phishing exercises on employees (31%).

Sikich’s 2019 Manufacturing and Distribution Report surveyed 310 companies. The participants spanned the industry, including wholesale and distribution; industrial equipment; metal fabrication; apparel, footwear and textiles; chemicals and petroleum; aerospace and defense; and food and beverage.

AODD pumps market growth driven by increasing investments in wastewater treatment and growing applications in end-use Iindustries

According to a recent report by Persistence Market Research, the global AODD pumps market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2018 and 2028. The AODD pumps market is projected to witness robust demand during the forecast period, owing to the steady growth in construction, energy, wastewater treatment, mining, agriculture and various other manufacturing industries.

Rapid industrialization is one of the other factors directly impacting the growth of the AODD pumps market.
