By Network- Segment Analysis
Ethernet is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 20.5% during the forecast period. The rapidly growing adoption of Industrial IoT (IIoT) predominantly among the manufacturing and automotive sectors is set to improve the efficiency of production processes and supply chain driving the growth of the industrial Ethernet market. Supportive government initiatives and hefty investments to extensively convert traditional grids into smart grids are resulting in the proliferation of the market. In 2020, major company, Midwest Utility announced plans to invest $7.6 Billion in Smart Grid Technology and Renewables Large-scale. Moreover, the adoption of industrial Ethernet products, such as switches, gateways, connectors, processors, and controllers for structuring industrial networks, is expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period. In addition the advent of innovative technologies, such as big data analytics, coupled with the increasing demand for cloud-based solutions in several enterprises across various sectors is escalating the demand for data centres, resulting in the industrial Ethernet market growth.
By Application – Segment Analysis
North America Industrial Switching Hub market in data centers is expected to grow at a CAGR of 21.5% in the forecast period 2020-2025. The operations of these data centres depend upon technology, computers and networking. As more and more users are connected to the networks the problems related to speed in transferring and retrieving data will also increase as the bandwidth has to be divided among the users connected through various access points. So to resolve this problem data centres have to use the network switches which can connect each port directly, which will help to share the bandwidth among the users connected to the ports. Hence with these advantages, several companies have adopted industrial switching hubs. In addition to this rise in investments, expansions related to data centres also creates an enormous opportunities for industrial switching hub. In 2019, Microsoft announced an investment of more than $1.1 billion for expansion of its presence in Mexico. Similarly Google has committed to expand its presence in U.S. Hence these benefits and investments are analysed to drive the market in the forecast period 2020-2025.

By Geography – Segment Analysis
In 2019, U.S dominated the Industrial Switching Hub market share of more than 62%. Owing to increased adoption of high bandwidth network, usage in data centers and so on are driving the Industrial Switching Hub in the region. The demand for Industrial Switching Hub market has risen dramatically over the past 12 months in the region due to expansion of data centers. In 2019, Google has committed to invest more than $10 billion for the expansion of its data centers in 11 states. Use of Industrial Switching Hub and Access Point in various industries in these regions are pushing the growth of Industrial Switching Hub and Access Point market.
Drivers – North America Industrial Switching Hub Market
- Growing demand for switching hubs in data centres
Increasing investments towards the construction of data centres will be one of the primary factors that will drive market for Industrial Switching hub in this region. The growing demand for cloud computing will also drive the demand for data centres. In 2020 Microsoft has announced plans to invest more than $1.1 billion for the expansion of its data centres in Mexico. Similarly, several key vendors have already entered into agreements to set up and expand their market operations. As switching hub is used for several applications such as detecting broadcast storm and improving network reliability in data centres. Hence the growing investments towards data centre construction will drive market growth in the forecast period 2020-2025.
- Emergence of new technologies
The emergence of Big data storage, and streaming media applications have affected behaviour on the network which now requires larger bandwidth for buffering. As switching hubs are the devices manufactured to meet these requirements, hence these emerging technologies are analysed to drive the market. Similarly, increasing demand for the time synchronization between the equipment used in the industrial automation will also drive the industrial switching hub as these network devices are the main components which connect the industrial equipment on the network. Hence these advantages are analyzed to drive the market in the forecast period 2020-2025.
Challenges – North America Industrial Switching Hub Market
- Device Differentiation is difficult for switching hub
Industrial switching hubs are unable to differentiate between the devices on the network. For instance, if one computer is trying to reach another on a hub-based network, the computer will send the message to every other computer on the network, consuming bandwidth for each transfer. Identification and differentiation of device is difficult. Hence these kinds of challenges hamper the market in the forecast period 2020-2025.
Product launches, acquisitions, Partnerships and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the North America Industrial Switching Hub market. In 2019, the market of North America Industrial Switching Hub has been fragmented with several companies vying for top share. North America Industrial Switching Hub top 10 include HP, Inc, Cisco systems Inc, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd, Juniper Inc, Alcatel-Lucent Inc, Allied Telesis Inc, Arista Networks Inc, Hirschmann Inc, Brocade Communications Systems, Inc, Schneider Electric, Inc, ECI Telecom Ltd, Oracle Corporation, Moxa, Inc among others.
- In July 2016, Omron Technologies has introduced W4S1-03B, which detects and suppresses broadcast storms that occur when switches are accidentally connected in a loop.
