The development of PROFINET is very encouraging. In 2016, a record 3.6 million PROFINET devices were put on the market. This brought the total number to 16.4 million at the end of 2016, which represents an increase of 28% over the previous year. 2.4 million PROFIBUS devices were produced in 2016, rather fewer than the previous year. However, the total of 56 million devices across all years still represents a record. 10.6 million of these were incorporated into process automation systems. However, if the annual values of the two technologies are compared, PROFINET is significantly ahead of PROFIBUS for the first time. In 2016, 50% more PROFINET devices were produced than PROFIBUS devices.
