The top three segments based on solution for the global industrial PROFIBUS market are discussed below:

Global industrial PROFIBUS PA market

PROFIBUS PA is a type of PROFIBUS solution that is specifically used for process automation. It uses the MBP-IS transmission technology for transmitting the data and communication protocol version PROFIBUS DP-V1. PA devices are used for PROFIBUS PA as an application profile.

According to Raghav Bharadwaj Shivaswamy, a lead automation research analyst from Technavio, “PROFIBUS PA is an application profile of PROFIBUS DP that is designed specifically for operating in hazardous environments. PROFIBUS PA is used with MBP to handle the high power over the bus in explosive environments. Coupler redundancy and PA ring redundancy are the two topologies on which PROFIBUS PA works.”

Global industrial PROFIBUS DP market

PROFIBUS DP is used for factory automation. It is simpler and faster than other protocols. Its application profiles allow users to combine the requirements for specific solutions. With government initiatives such as Industry 4.0, Manufacturing 3.0, Productivity 4.0, Make in India, and Make in China, countries such as Germany, Taiwan, South Korea, India, and China are boosting the adoption of smart manufacturing and IIoT in industries.

These factors are increasing the use of technology that would propel the factory automation. PROFIBUS DP is a protocol designed specifically for factory automation and has a large scope for increased adoption during the forecast period.

Global industrial PROFIdrive market

PROFIdrive is an application profile of PROFIBUS and focuses on drive technology using RS 485 transmission technology. It was developed by PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI) as a modular device profile for drive devices. PROFIdrive, the application profile, along with RS 485 transmission technology and PROFIBUS DP communication technology forms the PROFIBUS solution in the motion control segment.

“PROFIdrive uses DP-V2 communication protocol version for a better transmission speed. It is widely used in motion controls that are used in industries. It can also be used for Ethernet-based PROFINET communication. PROFIdrive can handle all the extreme diverse applications of drive technology,” says Raghav.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • ABB
  • Emerson Electric
  • Rockwell Automation
  • Siemens
  • Texas Instruments
