WLAN and Bluetooth Dominate Market

More than half of all wireless-enabled industrial automation equipment shipped in 2012 used Bluetooth or 802.11a/b/g/n wireless LAN (WLAN) technology, with the two entrenched standards set to increase their domination of the market in the coming years.
WLAN accounted for a 31 percent share of shipments of wireless-enabled industrial automation equipment in 2012, while Bluetooth held 22 percent of the market, according to a new IHS report entitled "The World Market for Wireless Communications in Factory and Process Automation" from IMS Research, now part of information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS). The remainder of the market was populated by a range of mainly proprietary technologies all accounting for relatively small percentages, as presented in the attached figure.
IHS predicts the share of the market held by 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth (both Classic and Low Energy variants) will continue to rise at least through the year 2017.
