Market Synopsis of Global Machine Safety Market


Market Scenario


Machines are used extensively in a number of industrial applications like assembly, packaging, robotics, material handling, and many others. Machine safety is the security and protection applied to both machines and operators working on them. Machines have the potential to cause damage and severe injuries at the workplace, hence, safeguarding the machines, and its parts, processes, or function, is essential to protect the workers from these injuries. The impact of such instances on the environment, workers, and the production has become critical for manufacturers. Companies are more inclined to adopt safety systems that provide security to employees through sustainable strategic programs.


The increasing number of accidents at workplace, along with the rising emphasis on proactive industrial safety is driving the growth of the machine safety market. Assembling is a fast and continuous process involving the movement of machinery and hazardous equipment that can cause harm to workers. Therefore, prevention to these accidents is the primary focus of organizations as there has been increasing attention on machine safety. The implementation of machine safety systems in these assembly lines act as a shield, covering the hazardous areas of a machine which is used to prevent any damage to the human body. The increasing adoption and improvements in safety devices such as safety curtains with the integration of light and digital indicators, along with the development of Industrial Revolution 4.0 can be seen as a potential growth opportunity of this market. However, the added cost associated with machine safety technology, and few instances of system failure in protecting machines and workers, is hampering the growth of the market. 


In April 2018, Rockwell Automation developed controllers that can simplify and improve the safety performance of the machines. The scalability of Compact GuardLogix 5380, and Allen-BradleyLogix 5580 controllers can be increased that can assist engineers to optimize the safety system design at a comparatively lower cost. These devices are high-performance controllers that use increased processing power to achieve faster reaction times and shorter safe distances. This helps to create smaller machines, increase operation efficiencies, reduce cost, and save valuable floor space, along with preventing the machines and workers from damage.
