Time-sensitive Networking Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Adoption of Deterministic Ethernet - The time-sensitive networking market, or TSN, is mostly driven by the growing need for deterministic Ethernet for real-time applications. Industrial control applications can benefit from predictable and low-latency communication using the TSN set of IEEE standards. Data delivery that is consistent and dependable is made possible by deterministic Ethernet, and this is crucial for real-time applications including robotics, machine vision, and process control. Real-time communication is becoming more important than ever owing to the growing deployment of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT). Due to their lack of determinism, traditional Ethernet networks are unable to satisfy the demands of these applications, which leads to unpredictable packet loss and communication delays. Conversely, deterministic Ethernet offers essential assurances for instantaneous communication.
  • Rising Integration of 5G Technology   - There is an enormous opportunity for the time-sensitive networking business with the introduction of 5G technology. Many TSN applications, including real-time communication, industrial automation, and autonomous vehicles, depend on ultra-low latency, high dependability, and large bandwidth capacities, all of which 5G networks are intended to deliver. Gaining more flexibility and scalability for TSN networks is one of the main benefits of 5G technology. Physical connections are no longer necessary thanks to 5G, which makes it feasible to create extremely dependable and low-latency wireless connections between devices. TSN applications, including industrial automation and robotics, are currently more mobile and flexible as a result of this.
  • Surging Demand for Automotive  - The worldwide car sales grew from nearly 65 million vehicles in 2021 to approximately 66 million automobiles in 2022. Modern automobiles and other on-road and off-road vehicles including recycling cranes, construction vehicles, mining vehicles, and forest machinery are just a few examples of the many automotive systems that have benefited from enhanced functionality and features made possible by embedded software in recent years. The automotive software has drastically grown in size and complexity as a result of the growing demand for new software-based capabilities in these systems. Tight time constraints pertain to a large number of automotive embedded systems. For this reason, while developing these systems, programmers must not only control software complexity but also ensure time consistency. Due to this the adoption of time-sensitive networking in automotive is growing. 


  • Lack of Standardization of Time-sensitive Networking - One of the main issues facing the time-sensitive networking (TSN) business is the absence of standardization. Time-sensitive applications may profit from deterministic communication capabilities offered by the TSN set of Ethernet standards. Nonetheless, consumers may experience confusion and interoperability problems due to the existence of multiple competing TSN protocols in the time-sensitive networking market. Various industry consortiums are currently developing multiple TSN standards. Although the functionality provided by all of these standards is meant to be identical, there are some minor variations in their implementation and capabilities.
  • High Complex Design of Time-sensitive Networking - Due to its complex network systems and unique technical requirements for reliable and timely data packet transmission, time-sensitive networking (TSN) poses a challenge to the industry. The complexity of designing, managing, and implementing TSN networks presents a major challenge. In order to guarantee successful deployment, a thorough understanding of TSN standards and protocols is required. This includes knowledge of topics like timing and synchronization, traffic shaping, stream reservation, fault tolerance, and redundancy. Furthermore, integrating several apps and devices with different configurations, capabilities, and vendor-specific protocols is part of the design process. As such, the intricacy of the process drives up expenses and time limits, making it especially challenging for smaller businesses and sectors to interact with TSN networks.

Time-sensitive Networking Segmentation

Type (IEEE 802.1 AS, IEEE 802.1 Qbv, IEEE 802.1 CB, IEEE 802.1 Qbu, IEEE 802.1 Qcc)

The IEEE 802.1 AS segment in the time-sensitive networking (TSN) market is expected to capture the highest revenue share of about 30% during the forecast period. IEEE 802.1AS, which was initially designed to facilitate plug-and-play video and audio applications, had just been enhanced. In actuality, IEEE 802.1AS is a significant standard change that preserves backward compatibility with the old standard while addressing 5G integration requirements. Furthermore, IEEE 802.1 AS standards prioritized enhanced reliability and cost savings, two factors critical to small-area network applications. Mechanisms are used by the IEEE 802.1AS protocol to confirm that every device connected to a network is following the protocol. For instance, an Ethernet switch is not included in the carrying time if it is discovered to not operate IEEE 802.1AS. For numerous local area network applications, reliable performance is crucial, and this is what this offer. Hence, the segment is expected to observe the significant growth in the market over the forecast period.

Component (Switches, Hubs, Routers & Gateways, Connectors, Power Supply Devices, Connectors & Processors)

The switched segment in the time-sensitive networking market is expected to gather the largest revenue share of about 30% in the coming years. In the Time-sensitive Networking (TSN) market, switches hold the biggest market share as a result of their vital function in network infrastructure, which includes connectivity and the facilitation of accurate and low-latency communication. Reliable and timely data transport is ensured by TSN switches, which are built to handle TSN characteristics including time synchronization and Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees. Switches have become the most popular component in the time-sensitive networking market owing to their scalability, versatility, and extensive availability from several suppliers. This has made them the go-to option for establishing TSN solutions. Moreover, owing to the rising number of data centers which is necessitating seamless transfer of data the segment is growing.
