This study on global automation control components and devices market provides detailed information about the trends and dynamics in industrial automation and factory automation landscape, market size, competitive landscape, and growth opportunities. The global automation control components and devices market was valued at USD 43.61 billion in 2018; it is expected to reach USD 87.75 billion by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 10.8%. The scope of the global automation control components and devices market study includes the market size analysis and a detailed analysis of the manufacturer’s products, recent developments, vendor landscape, competitive benchmarking, and strategies. The market has been segmented based on type, application, and region.

Automation enhances production rate and quality by incorporating innovative and integrated technologies, thereby reducing costs associated with the production process. However, with the rapid evolution of technology, businesses are compelled to update their existing automation solutions to meet modern process requirements. This has encouraged several manufacturers to boost their production capacity of automation control components and devices to adopt advanced automation solutions such as value creation automation (VCA). OEMs in the automation market procure raw materials required to manufacture controllers, electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, and sensors. The major factors boosting the growth of automation control components and devices include government policies supporting the adoption of industrial automation, and increasing demand for industrial automation in industries.

Key Developments

  • In August 2018, Omron introduced the NX-series safety network controller. This supports two safety protocols namely CIP Safety, which is adopted by industrial robot manufacturers, and Safety over EtherCAT*3 (FSoE) that provides a high-speed response.

  • In May 2018, Rockwell launched a new family of Micro800 family PLC to help the optimization of control architecture in large standalone machines or systems. The new Micro870 PLC has three plug-ins and eight I/O modules and can support smart micro applications. Furthermore, the PLC supports modular programming and user-defined function blocks to reduce design time.

  • In February 2017, Schneider partnered with the French Engie to implement new digital solutions for efficient operations of wind and solar farms. The partnership aims at making use of SCADA for asset management, remote monitoring, diagnostics, and cybersecurity.
