Industrial Ethernet Switch Market Outlook – 2028 

The global industrial Ethernet switch market size was valued at $2.94 Billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $4.99 Billion by 2028, to register a CAGR of 7.1% from 2021 to 2028. Ethernet switch is a multiport network switch that connects all the computer networking devices together on a computer. These industrial-grade Ethernet Switches are particularly designed for connecting the devices in industrial network environments that are subject to extreme operating temperatures of -40°C to 75°C, shocks, and vibrations. Such type of Ethernet switches find applications in industrial and factory automation; rail and intelligent transportation systems (ITSs); marine; and oil and gas sectors.  

Factors such as increase in adoption of industrial Ethernet switches due to its benefits along with rising need to ensure efficiency in communication infrastructure in the automotive & transport environment significantly drives the growth of the market. In addition, rise in application of industrial Ethernet switch in industrial infrastructures such as smart grid, intelligent rail & traffic, security & surveillance, and other utilities, fuels the industrial Ethernet switch market growth.
