Functional safety can be termed as an overall safety system for automation protection. Functional safety is applicable for checking on inputs and failure responses to predict the error in a fail-safe manner. The major systems included in functional safety are industrial control systems, supervisory control systems, distributed control systems, and safety instrumented systems, among others. Some of the advanced functional safety systems also include fire and gas monitoring solutions, burner management solutions, and emergency shutdown solutions. The key factor boosting global market growth is the increasing use of IIoT and industrial automation. Applications of functional safety systems pre and post COVID-19 pandemic has been seen across the oil & gas, military & aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing industries, as well as the retail and wholesale sector. Functional safety systems are gaining momentum in the global market as these solutions are used for reducing risks via automated safety systems. Several companies are offering functional safety systems, which are widely used in various industries, such as medical, transportation, utilities, and chemical, to mitigate operational risks. These systems offer safety for the products, personnel, and equipment, among others.


North America accounted for the largest market share of 35.22% in 2019, with a market value of USD 1,406.7 million; the market is expected to register the highest CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period.

Based on devices, the global functional safety market has been segmented into actuators, safety sensors, final control elements, safety controllers/relays, programmable safety system, safety switches, valves, and others. The safety switches segment accounted for the largest market share of 18.1% in 2019, with a market value of USD 723.7 million; it is expected to register a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period. The actuator segment was the second-largest market in 2019, valued at USD 679.1 million; it is projected to register the highest CAGR of 6.3%. Actuators are equipment that convert energy into motion. They are used to apply force on an entity to perform various mechanical operations. These sensors are designed for the presence detection in equipment. Generally used in manufacturing industries, safety sensors are used to monitor movable safety guards such as doors, covers, and shafts. A final control element is a mechanical device that is designed to physically change a process in response to a change in the control system setpoint. Safety controllers, modules, and relays are devices that activate the electronic circuit. When the control circuit is powered, the relay shuts and allows current to flow between two connected points. Programmable safety systems are computing systems that are used for detecting an error in automated machinery and thereby send early alerts. Emergency stop devices are safety devices that are used in case of emergencies that require complete machinery shutdown. Safety switches are electric switches that are designed to function as a way to disconnect a service entrance and enable fault protection for heavy machinery. A safety valve is a fail-safe safety device that is designed to open and relieve excess pressure from a vessel or equipment.
