To leverage the IoT to link their supply chains, equipment, and products better, active investigations are going on by discrete manufacturers all over the world
By 2025, the Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) spending in the discrete manufacturing sector in Asia-Pacific is likely to reach $89 billion, according to a new report.
Distinct items like automobiles, furniture, toys, smartphones, and airplanes, among others are included in discrete manufacturing production.
According to an IDC report, accounting for one-third of all assaults, manufacturing is the most common target of infrastructure cybercrime today.
Additionally, before making a purchase, the level of competitiveness is rising and so do the expectations of the client which demands improved personalisation, rapid information, and better assistance.
“Most traditional manufacturing plants were not built with cybersecurity in mind. With the advancement of hacking technology, every point of connection increases the danger of cyberattacks and cybercrime, which can result in interference, remote access, intellectual property theft, and data loss or change,” said Piyush Singh, senior market analyst for IoT Insights, IDC Asia/Pacific.
To leverage the IoT to link their supply chains, equipment, and products better, active investigations are going on by discrete manufacturers all over the world.
Because of the insights manufacturers can obtain about their equipment, they can profit greatly from retrofitting smart sensors to old equipment, said the report.
Close to one-third of all IoT spending in 2020 (hardware, software, services, and connectivity combined) in Asia/Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) was for the manufacturing industry.
“Retrofitting machinery with IoT capabilities is a cost-effective solution to update outdated pieces of equipment, especially when compared with totally replacing them,” said Singh.
To boost production and efficiency by simplifying and automating manufacturing processes over the Internet, China is placing a large bet on the Industrial IoT, the report mentioned.
