As per Market Research Future (MRFR) analysis, the global industrial ethernet switch market size is projected to reach USD 2 billion with 14% CAGR from 2017 to 2023 (forecast period). The report identifies the strengths, prospects, challenges, and future market risks and provides a detailed analysis of the global business environment with the effects of COVID-19.

The ethernet switch helps to connect ethernet devices. It enables them to receive data frames from one device and transfers these frames to the appropriate switch ports connected to the ethernet. In general, ethernet switches use the store and forward method to pass frames in which the switch receives and transfers the entire frame at once. Switches can store frames in a data table and learn to locate devices such as PLC, SCADA, and others in the industry. The switches are capable of controlling the LED network and providing frame setting capability.

There are two types of industrial ethernet switches, managed switches, and unmanaged switches. Managed switches can support SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), used to collect and configure information and track network devices. In the case of unmanaged switches, the LED status shows the network connectivity. The primary benefit of using a managed switch is that it provides a port mirror function.

Market Dynamics

Improving data centers' capacity and increasing deployment of ethernet-based solutions in industries are primarily driving the market. The increasing dependence of organizations on data centers, the need for high-speed data services, and automatic switching devices are accelerating market growth. High costs associated with the installation of managed industrial ethernet switches and lack of expertise are hindering market development.

Ethernet switches have a range of functions, including port mirroring, redundancy, QoS (Quality of Service), IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) snooping, and others. With port mirroring, the switch can monitor the frames sent by or received by the port. Based on this feature, a computer running a program called a protocol analyzer can receive or transmit data from a wide range of ports that can help with problem-solving tools customization. Ethernet switches are capable of withstanding high operating temperatures and high vibration environments.
