The Global Market for Intrinsically Safe Mobile Devices: Digital Transformation Initiatives Make Capitalizing on Mobile Technology a Priority
Published: September 30, 2019 Content info: 26 Pages; 38 Exhibits
Description

While worker safety is a key priority in every industry across the world, it is paramount for the large segment of the global workforce that find themselves in high-risk environments due to the nature of their employers business. Every process or industrial manufacturer must ensure that their workers who regularly move in and out of hazardous areas are safe; and, in certain cases, accounted for. For this reason, many manufacturers maintaining facilities with areas deemed hazardous (facilities or locations with atmospheres that may contain flammable concentrations of gases or vapors by leakage, or ignitable concentrations of dust or fibers by suspension or dispersion) have had to make very strategic technology investments; particularly around mobility.

Devices certified for hazardous environments have been instrumental in enabling digital transformation in these facilities. While hazardous-rated equipment has long been a fixture in these locations, the technology has improved - hazardous-rated devices with improved performance, modern operating systems, and better data capture capabilities are augmenting workflows and providing better access to more sophisticated applications.

This report evaluates the market for mobile solutions in hazardous manufacturing environments globally. The report includes market sizing for the global IS mobile hardware by industry and region, as well as an analysis of end-user requirements and overall IS market trends.
