Rugged Devices Market: Overview

The gap between rugged devices and consumer devices has widened—the key discerning factor being the ability of these to work under extreme conditions. The drive for rugged devices has gathered steam on the back of growing number user groups who either nurse the fascination of such devices or need such devices. Rugged computing devices have seen increasing market propositions in the military and government sectors and similar consumer groups who need high functionality in specialized conditions. Key end-use industries may include manufacturing, transportation, construction, and utility sectors. Thus, rugged devices are expected to resist liquid contamination and high drops, withstand vibrations, and are unaffected by extreme weather and temperature conditions.

Manufacturers in the rugged devices market need to ensure that the devices comply with certain testing and ingress protocols. Some of the notable test method standards are MIL-STD-810G and the Ingress Protection (IP) rating system. The IP ratings that these display imply what is the nature of requirements they should meet. Typically, to ensure that rugged devices support high-end networking, stakeholders in the rugged devices market need to meet commercial satellites.
