As reported last month by Technavio technology research firm, the worldwide use of industrial tablet computers is expected to grow strongly, by more than 6% per year, over the next 5 year period. Growth is expected to be especially strong in “small size” tablets, which Technavio identifies as tablets less than 11” in size (as measured by screen size). Estone Tech’s ET, MPOS, MR, and MT product lines all offer tablets less than 11”, suited for a wide range of commercial and industrial concerns.

The report also indicated that three areas in which Estone has great expertise are expected to grow quickly – especially Industrial Tablets, Healthcare Tablets, and Transportation Tablets. These market segments require unique tools and technology from their tablet pcs, such as integrated barcode scanners for tracking inventory, NFC connectivity for security, and vibration resistance to cope with life on the road. It’s important for industrial tablet customers to consider all of their needs and requirements before selecting a tablet manufacturer.

A report on Businesswire also discusses the growth of the industrial tablet market in various world markets. The European market is the largest current tablet market, with heavy growth driven by Germany, France, and the UAE and Saudi Arabia in the middle east. Those countries are most interested in field service tablets for the petrochemical & energy industries. Meanwhile, the Americas and Asia will also see strong growth, driven by the transportation and military industries. Estone tech is pleased to offer quality tablet PCs in each of these industries.

All-In-One Computing Platforms & IoT Gateways on Display at Internet of Things Conference

Likewise, products that are able to communicate information about their operation, status of supplies, and necessary maintenance to their owners or manufacturers can ease any burdens of ownership, and help manufacturers built the best possible equipment by demonstrating why and how people are using the products. Lastly, by communicating with each other, IoT enabled devices in your home or workplace can improve the result of any process.

In order to make these benefits a reality, product developers and manufacturers need a trusted partner in the development of embedded, integrated, and special use electronics and computers. Estone Tech Business Development Manager Randall Sucamele will be on hand at the Iot World event in Santa Clara, CA from May 16th – 18th to help attendees find that trusted partner.
