The global rugged handheld devices market to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% over the period 2014-2019.
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global rugged handheld devices market for the period 2014-2019. To calculate the market size, the report covers the sales of rugged handheld devices worldwide. However, the report does not consider the following to estimate the market size: tablets, notebooks, PDAs, vehicle mounts, components or devices used in the production of rugged handheld devices, and aftermarket sales of rugged handheld devices. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
With organizations across the world becoming systematic in their functioning, for instance, integration of automated systems in manufacturing units, the likelihood of transition from conventional to rugged devices is rising. As organizations have zero tolerance for errors and delay in data handling and reporting, the adoption of rugged devices such as smartphones and readers or scanners is on the rise.
According to the report, organizations now prefer to access Internet facilities on the go, without time and location constraints. Field personnel working at such organizations need web applications for many purposes such as viewing multimedia content, browsing the Internet, video calling, and data analysis to make work more efficient. Rugged handheld devices support these facilities while providing a high-quality HD viewing experience on a small screen.
Further, the report states that rugged handheld devices are expensive compared to other consume-grade devices. This is because of their complex features, advanced technology, the high R&D investments needed to create them, and the additional protective layers added to the hardware. The high cost restricts small enterprises from using rugged devices, which is a concern for price sensitive end-users in emerging markets.
