Market Scenario


Factory Automation can be defined as the use of computer-aided control devices to operate different industrial processes by replacing human involvement. Factory Automation helps to operate multiple processes in a controlled manner. It helps for mass production by reducing time and increasing production quality.


Industrial Automation consists of different levels such as sensor level, automation control level automation, supervision level and enterprise level. The sensor level can also be called as the process level that uses sensors and actuators for getting values of the process variables on periodic or continuous basis.  Control devices which include PC’s, PLC’s and DCS are used by the automation companies at control level. PLC is majorly a machine control whereas DCS leads the process control. The automation control level operates using different embedded processors, PID algorithms to control all processes. Factory Automation includes various technologies as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), human machine interface (HMI). Supervisory control and data acquisition is a controlled system architecture which uses computers, graphical user interfaces and network data communications for high-level processes. Human Machine Interface includes the electronics required to signal and control the state of industrial automation equipment. The major benefits of Factory Automation can be considered as replacing human involvement from risky areas of work, greater quality of production and economy improvement.


The industry players are emphasized on increasing the efficiency of manufacturing process which is the major driver in Factory Automation market. Apart from it, developments in computer aided systems, and internet of things (IoT), engineering technologies are the factors driving Factory Automation market. Usage of robots in industrial controller mechanisms has been a market trend. However, the decreasing human labor has led to a threat in factory automation. Lack of awareness and scarcity of investment by many companies could be the major restraints for factory automation.
