Market Report Description

The Global Time-sensitive Networking Market size is expected to reach $1.4 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 45.2% CAGR during the forecast period. Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) refers to a collection of IEEE standards that is developed by the Time-Sensitive Task Force of the IEEE 802.1 working group. TSN helps to gather real-time information in order to conduct analytics, boost the productivity of the system and achieve actionable insights. Hence, TSN offers deterministic real-time communication over the Ethernet. Through the various advancements in the standards, Ethernet communication in the future would offer measurable end-to-end latencies, firmly restricted latency fluctuations, and very low packet loss.

Ethernet is playing an important role in the communication in IT sector since a long period. Earlier, there was no set of standards for real-time assistance to IEEE standardized Ethernet that resulted in various alterations of Ethernet for its usage in industrial & transportation systems where real-time communication is a vital component. There was also restricted scalability of the adapted Ethernet solutions for their application in numerous industries. Thus, the IEEE TSN task group introduced new standards for better and real-time delivery of Ethernet traffic. TSN helps in achieving the deterministic real-time communication by utilizing the time & schedule that is developed for message ways on various network entities.

The growth of the time-sensitivity networking market is attributed to the growing adoption of IoT applications by numerous manufacturing industries owing to the emergence of Industry 4.0. The increasing demand for real-time networking by various industrial verticals like automotive, energy & utility, manufacturing, transportation, oil & gas and aerospace, is also contributing to the market growth.
