Industry Controls and Factory Automation Market Trends




  • Growing importance of energy efficiency and cost reduction is driving the market growth




Employment in the manufacturing sector has declined in the United States over the previous 25 years. Rising labor costs, pressure to lower prices, and rising material costs are these industries' key issues. Additionally, uneven productivity is reflected in the variable unit labor costs in the US, which has sped up the adoption of automation in the industrial sector and reduced manufacturing prices. Despite the importance of risk management, businesses are more conscious of the specific traits that make technology a profit driver at any given moment of the industrial cycle. The susceptibility to changes in material costs has also diminished as a result of material savings from increased worker productivity. Automation offers adaptability in response to fluctuating demand levels, improving overall profitability and competitiveness, especially when prices are low, and is carried out with the same cyclical effects in mind. The Institute for Supply Management's Manufacturing Business Survey Committee reports that industrial material costs grew in 2020 after falling the year before.


To secure the overall development of their countries, governments all over the world support industry growth. Utilization of multiple automation and communication components and technologies is a result of the structural growth of the industries. The development of the discrete and process industries is a priority for governments. The national manufacturing policy (NMP) of the government is what's driving the expansion of India's manufacturing sector. One of the initiatives the Indian government has introduced to encourage companies to automate their manufacturing plants is the Make in India program.


Small standalone units to several linked, expansive work cells dispersed around the manufacturing floor make up the automation systems. Every system is made to perform a specific duty, which lowers costs, improves quality, increases operator safety, and increases output. Technologies like analytics, cloud computing, and mobility are assisting businesses in effectively achieving their goals. Additionally, the expansion of smart manufacturing, which embraces and adopts the benefits of internet connectivity, is being driven by the penetration of Internet of Things (IoT) in factory automation. For instance, Emerson Electric Co. will introduce TopWorx DX Partial Stroke Test with HART 7 in May 2022. This new automation solution boosts safety and automation by enabling a separate emergency shutdown valve.


Additionally, technological advancement, expanding infrastructure opportunities, and increased operational efficiency demands all influence factory automation. Automation is anticipated to improve nations and businesses by ushering in a new stage of economic growth. It is anticipated to have a substantial impact on a variety of companies, shareholders, business strategies, and helpful government policies to encourage adoption across industries globally. Due to increased knowledge of cloud computing platforms and advancements in semiconductor and electronic device technology, the automation sector is anticipated to rise during the forecast period. Thus, driving the Industry Controls and Factory Automation market revenue.
