IMS Research Confirms Sustained POWERLINK Growth

(PresseBox) (Berlin, )
POWERLINK is growing in significance. Its share of the overall industrial Ether-net market once again increased over the last year. POWERLINK has once more underscored its outstanding position as the leading industrial Ethernet system for hard real-time applications. With a 9% share among all variants of Industrial Ethernet communication, POWERLINK currently ranks fourth, trailing only Profinet, Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP. This has been confirmed in a study recently published by IMS Research entitled "The World Market for Indus-trial Ethernet & Fieldbus Technologies - 2013 Edition".

"The IMS study shows continuous and significant growth in market share for POWERLINK," says Stefan Schönegger, managing director of the Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group. "I am pleased to find that POWERLINK is enjoying a sustainable trend towards growth."
