COVID-19 Analysis


The outbreak of COVID-19 has not given industries and companies time to prepare or protect themselves from any losses. The market scenario is ambiguous and can go up or down steeply, depending on the actions taken and the results obtained by the organizations. The outbreak has affected numerous industries around the world. It has contributed to either the closure or suspension of their manufacturing operations in most industrial units around the world. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has had an immense effect on the aviation, automotive, manufacturing, and food & beverage sectors.


The COVID-19 crisis has amplified the fault lines in the functioning of global value chains (GVCs) and exposed the fragility of a model characterized by the high interdependency between leading firms and suppliers across several continents. When timely production of critical products is more important than ever, the pandemic has locked down vast parts of the globe and limited economic activities in an unprecedented way. Long before COVID-19, Industry 4.0 technologies were already fostering a reorganization of GVCs involving the relocation (and reshoring) of productive activities. Industry 4.0, especially automation, unlocks new labor-saving technologies, which could reduce reliance on low-skill labor in manufacturing and reduce the benefits of offshoring. COVID-19 could accelerate some of these trends. Both automation and reshoring enable more flexible adjustment to the changing demand, mitigating firms’ risks in case of a pandemic or other external shock.


Reshoring is a major challenge for the recipient economy. The process can cause high economic and social costs much beyond the immediate job and business turnover losses. Relocations of supply chain activities could affect the services and strategies of businesses in the medium and long run. The automation of certain components may not be feasible or even desirable due to shortages of skilled workers. Strengthening regional value chains is becoming a priority for developing countries to diversify risk, reduce vulnerability, increase resilience, and foster industrial development.


Market Dynamics


Industrial automation is on the threshold of a new revolution, moving through rapid technological changes, adopting new systems and networking architectures, and looking towards interoperability of devices and systems. The industrial automation services market is impacted by the factors such as market drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges.


Drivers


  • Increasing Demand for Industrial Automation in Manufacturing Industries


With the continuing need for greater throughput and reduced costs, manufacturers are looking to adopt automation and Industry 4.0 solutions to enhance their efficiency. Automation has become known more as using machines for reducing work performed by humans. The technology has become associated with electromechanical systems that are programmed to perform many types of processes. The main end goal is to drive greater efficiency by either increasing production capacity or reducing costs, often both. Automation in the manufacturing industry is growing and continues to shape the factory floor. Manufacturers are striving to achieve a full digital thread from tracking materials supply chains and production to delivery. Manufacturers are increasingly using automation to boost precision and consistency and achieve greater operational efficiency. The future of automation in manufacturing industries is progressing with the adoption of robotics, machine vision, IIoT, and other digital technologies. Leveraging automation and advanced technologies, such as robotics and robotic process automation through ERP software, enable even higher gains in productivity to be made each day. Thus, the increasing demand for industrial automation in manufacturing industries is expected to drive the growth of the global industrial automation services market during the forecast period.


Opportunity


  • Advancements in Industrial Robotics


Companies around the world are increasing the adoption of robots in industrial sectors. With the integration of artificial intelligence and other improvements in robotics, such as better machine vision and better sensors, robotics promises to see significantly improved pricing and performance over the next decade. Robotics are considered as vital tools for boosting productivity. To date, most robotic adoption has occurred in manufacturing industries, wherein they perform a variety of manual tasks more efficiently and consistently than humans. The use of robots is becoming cheaper, more flexible, and more autonomous, partly due to the incorporationof artificial intelligence. Some robots substitute for human workers, while others—collaborative robots, or “cobots,” which work alongside workers—complement them. Robotics are expected to promote faster productivity growth in many functions and industries that involve moving or transforming physical things. As robots and other autonomous systems improve functionality and reduce operational costs, their impact on productivity is likely to be even more significant. As this trend continues, robot adoption is anticipated to be a key determinant of productivity growth and potentially reshape global supply chains. Thus, the advancements in industrial robotics are expected to present lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the global industrial automation services market.


Restraints


  • High Implementation Costs


The initial investments associated with switching from a human production line to an automatic production line are very high. Furthermore, substantial costs are involved in training employees to handle this new sophisticated equipment. The company must invest in automation and would require more specialized labor to develop software and maintain the machinery. Various firms that are under short-term pressures are reluctant to invest in the automation systems required and lag behind the automation race. Lack of investment in industrial automation has been put forward for poor growth in labor productivity in most economies across the globe. Thus, the high implementation costs are expected to restrict the growth of the global industrial automation services market during the forecast period.
