The Commercial Market Is Setting The Pace For Rugged Handheld Computers And Smartphones Market
Rugged handheld computers are designed for the most extreme situations, including shock, vibration, temperature extremes and moisture. Rugged, portable smartphones are smaller than tablets and laptops. These devices can withstand the harsh climate and environmental conditions. The battery life of a rugged handheld device is over 10 hours. It's lighter than keyboard and mouse, and you can navigate faster through the touchscreen. Robust handheld devices are used for reporting, communicating with colleagues, monitoring activities, and database analysis.
The increase in large-scale technology integration in the end-user sector is a key driver of growth in the global robust handheld computer and smartphone markets. Data logging, data analysis and use of robust handheld devices for real-time computing in the end-user sector, such as the industrial and consumer end-user segments, will also drive growth in global robust handheld computers and smartphones during the forecast period expected.
High initial investment costs, high procurement costs, and long replacement cycles are factors that impede the growth of the global handheld computer and smartphone markets. In addition, connectivity issues, data security issues, and non-support for all Android upgrades are some of the other factors that keep the global robust handheld computer and smartphone market from growing during the forecast period.
Global robust handheld computing and smartphone markets are categorized by type, application and geography.
