PROFINET and Ethernet/IP are the Industrial Ethernet leaders

17 April 2013

A new IMS Research study, entitled ‘The World Market for Industrial Ethernet & Fieldbus Technologies – 2013 Edition’, confirms that PROFINET has a leading position alongside Ethernet/IP, both having a market share of 30% of the globally established Industrial Ethernet solutions.

The leading group includes PROFINET, Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP. Together, this group covers more than three-quarters of the market. The EtherCAT and Powerlink variants, which focus mainly on drive technology, have a market share of 7% and 9%, respectively, according to the study.

The development of PROFIsafe has proven to be especially positive according to IMS. With an increase of newly installed nodes in the field of 50%, one-in-ten new PROFIBUS or PROFINET devices are currently equipped with PROFIsafe.
