Functional Safety Market Segment Insights:


Functional Safety Devices Insights


The Functional Safety Market segmentation, based on devices includes actuators, safety sensors, final control elements, safety controllers, modules, relays and programmable safety systems. During the forecast period, safety controllers are predicted to have the biggest market share due to their ability to inform users in the event of a hazardous condition. For the past few years, stereoscopic vision technology has gained market traction due to its ability to extract accurate information from high-volume traffic data. Sensors used in a safety system are developed and designed to provide a safe output based on logic if a measurement or signal transmission fails. These safety sensors include redundancy elements, which means that if one element fails, another takes control of the operations, avoiding productivity losses caused by shutdown.


Functional Safety System Insights


The Functional Safety Market segmentation, based on system, includes Safety Instrumented Systems, Turbo Machinery Control (TMC), Supervisory Control System, Burner Management Systems (BMS) and Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD). The emergency shutdown systems (ESD) category accounted for the biggest revenue share in 2022, owing to increased initiatives by governments throughout the world to strengthen functional safety measures in industries and accident-prone locations. Additionally, increased demand for emergency shutdown systems with functional safety certification in various industries to improve worker safety is driving revenue growth in this segment. Accidents at oil and gas (O&G) activities have the potential to be destructive to the community and the environment. Functional safety measures, such as emergency shutdown systems, can greatly reduce the likelihood of disasters in oil and gas plants.


Functional Safety End-Users Insights


The Functional Safety Market segmentation, based on end-users, includes oil & gas, metal and mining, pharmaceuticals and biotech, retail and wholesale and others. Oil and gas are expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period, owing to the increasing emphasis of companies in this industry on maximizing efficiency and minimizing costs throughout the distribution chain. Automation aids in the integration of information and power, control, and safety solutions to meet stringent government regulations as well as the demand for affordable energy. This creates a demand for functional safety solutions in this industry, which in turn supports market growth.
