Safety Light Curtains Market Trends

  • Rising demand from the automotive industry is driving the market growth

The development of a smart factory that uses smart manufacturing and technology like artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, analytics, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) and can operate largely autonomously with the ability to self-correct will cause the automotive industry to experience significant growth over the forecast period. Industry 4.0 has crucial results, one of which is a smart factory. The majority of organizations are moving forward with their smart factory projects, and one-third of factories have already been converted into smart facilities, according to Capgemini's Smart Factories 2019 study. In addition, they intend to build 40% more smart factories over the next five years and raise yearly spending by 1.7 times over the previous three. The safety light curtains will now have more options available to them in the future. The health and safety of employees are seriously at stake in car companies because the floor is constantly crowded with robots and other machinery. It is obvious that effective protocols are needed to prevent some of the more preventable catastrophes when thousands of pounds of metal are suspended above employees, sharp instruments are being used, and repeated motions are a mainstay practice. Sprains (39% of all reported injuries), lacerations (22%), and contusions (15%) were the most frequently experienced injuries in automobile factories.

Due to the growing demand for processed foods and drinks, industrial facilities are also pressured to boost output rates by introducing automatic machinery to balance the demand and supply equation. According to a Northwestern Medicine report, store-bought foods and beverages (both packaged and unpackaged) account for almost 80% of Americans' calories. As a result, the availability of food and beverages is crucial to the emergence of chronic diseases like obesity and cardiovascular disease. Increased machine deployment in facilities has spurred demand for safety accessories like safety light curtains, affecting market CAGR.

Furthermore, the construction of warehouses and the use of robots in the facility to achieve faster deliveries have resulted from the rapid expansion of e-commerce in almost every sector due to the development of user-friendly interfaces, ease of shopping, accessibility of smartphones, and greater geographic penetration of the internet. For instance, the online retail behemoth Amazon currently operates more than 110 active fulfillment centers, 45 sorting centers, and roughly 50 delivery stations in the United States and more than 185 centers worldwide that are dispersed across the globe with more than 200,000 mobile robots to provide consumers with quick, inexpensive, and comparatively painless deliveries. In the upcoming years, it expects to expand its operations by opening 33 new warehouses worldwide, which is anticipated to result in greater use of safety light curtain technology. Thus, driving the safety light curtains market revenue.
