Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a set of standards under development by the Time-Sensitive Networking task group of the IEEE 802.1 working group. The standards define mechanisms for the time-sensitive transmission of data over Ethernet networks.
Presently, the development of IEEE standards for deterministic Ethernet, growing adoption of industrial IoT and industry 4.0 solutions, and increasing need for real-time networking for various applications drives the time-sensitive networking market. However, inability of TSN standards to provide customized solutions restrains the growth of the market. Increasing testing activities by leading players, growing interest for TSN in automotive application, and rising OPC foundation activities (association of two or more companies) for TSN are expected to provide growth opportunities for the time-sensitive networking market. However, the main challenge for the Time-Sensitive Networking market is deployment of TSN solutions with existing technologies.
The automation industry is expected to have major share of the TSN market. TSN is used in the automation industry in motion control application and machine to machine communication. Data which is mission critical and time sensitive are expected to be shared and transferred within strict bounds of reliability and latency. Increasing interest in industrial IoT makes industrial automation application important for TSN. The increasing need for real time networking for various applications, is expected to help in the growth of the Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) market.
The TSN market is segmented on the basis of types of standards, components, and application. On the basis of standards, the market is segmented into IEEE 802.1AS, IEEE 802.1 Qca, IEEE 802.1AS-Rev, IEEE 802.1Qbv, IEEE 802.1 Qci,IEEE 802.1 CB, IEEE 802.1, Qcc IEEE 802.1,Qch and IEEE 802.1 CM.
