About Rugged Smartphone

Rugged smartphones are designed in such a way that they can withstand shock, dust, rain, cold, high temperature, and many other demanding environments. The only difference between rugged smartphones and standard smartphones is the toughness. In order to be classified as rugged, a smartphone has to undergo a series of tests. Rugged smartphones are designed for niche markets like the military, law enforcement, oil and gas extraction rigs, and many other markets where the environment is demanding.

The analysts forecast the global rugged smartphone market to grow at a CAGR of 2.27% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Rugged Smartphone Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global rugged smartphone market: Amrel, Caterpillar, Getec, Honeywell Scanning and Mobility, Panasonic, Shenzhen Zhouji HOMTOM Technology, Sonim Technologies, Ulefone, and Zebra Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is consumerization of rugged smartphones. Rugged smartphones are generally for a niche market. However, due to the emergence of slimmer, thinner, and lighter designs, rugged smartphones are attracting individual customers also. The major concern is that established standard laptop vendors like Apple and Samsung have started manufacturing more durable devices, which is a threat to the rugged device manufacturers entering this market.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is evolving business requirements. Due to the drastic changes in the commercial and industrial businesses and their functions, employees are often required to have remote work access and connectivity most of the time. This compels the employees to have computing devices such as tablets and mobile computers (mobile computing devices). This has resulted in vendors providing a new category of rugged smartphones called business rugged, which are slightly more rugged than semi-rugged smartphones having a rating of IP5x.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of rugged smartphones. Rugged smartphones are only for niche markets. Due to their design, they are costlier than standard notebooks. Due to this cost factor, many end-users such as manufacturing firms, construction, and mining industries are switching to non-rugged smartphones. Even the standard smartphone manufacturers are improving their durability by shifting from rotating hard drives to more durable solid-state hard drives. These features bring more confidence to the end-users as standard smartphone failure rates can be better managed by field workers.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
