IoT and Mobile Hydraulics – Report and Recorded Webinar Available

The full report – Hydraulic Components and IoT in Mobile Machinery – by IHS Markit, is now available to all members on the NFPA website at

The report was commissioned by NFPA to develop an understanding of the current state and expected evolution of IoT (Internet of Things) technology on hydraulics for mobile applications and is based on surveys of nearly 700 engineers and decision makers.  Find out about the drivers and inhibitors of smarter and connected mobile machinery, the impact on hydraulic content, and the likely pace of change from industry down to application level.

Also available, along with the report, is a recording of yesterday’s webinar of the same name, in which Mark Watson, Senior Research Manager at IHS Markit, walked our audience through an explanation of some key findings and answered questions. Members can download that recording here by clicking the link at the bottom of this page:
