Market Synopsis


The Global Industrial Controller Market was valued at USD 63.21 Billion in 2018; it is expected to reach USD 128.98 Billion by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 11.1%.


Industrial controllers minimize human interference and enable manufacturing facilities to increase product quality, quantity, and reliability while reducing the costs incurred in the production and designing of the product. The demand for automation by manufacturing facilities and similar industries is expected to drive the growth of the global industrial controllers market. PCs, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and distributed control systems (DCS) provide process control functionality which is used at automation control level in industrial automation. In the case of SCADA, PLC and DCS systems, multiple servers at various locations require additional maintenance and management of individual servers which add up to the investment costs for enterprises. Several enterprises are expected to adopt industrial robots due to the trend of automation and innovative technological advancements. The adoption of industrial robotics is expected to offer a growth opportunity for players in the industrial controllers market.


Key  Developments



  • In September 2019, Omron introduced the sixth wave of control panel equipment for factory automation. This equipment is built on a common design platform with unified product specifications, for further innovation in control panel building. The products consist of 237 models in six categories: J7KC, J7TC, J7MC, J7KCA, and J7KCR series low-voltage switching gears, S8V-CP series DC electronic circuit protectors and PTF-PU series Sockets with Push-In Plus technology.

  • In February 2019, Schlumberger Limited entered into a joint venture with Rockwell Automation, a company dedicated to industrial automation and information, to combine the latter’s integrated control and information solutions with former’s oil and gas expertise to help customers maximize the value of their investments.

  • In May 2018, Rockwell launched a new Micro800 family of PLCs to help 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.
