Smart Pneumatics Market Overview

The global smart pneumatics market was valued at USD 3.14 billion during the historic forecast period and is expected to reach USD 4.76 billion by the end of the Smart Pneumatics Market Forecast forecast period at a CAGR of 7.5%. Smart pneumatics are modern pneumatic devices that can generate real-time data while in use. This real-time data collection has aided engineers and device operators in understanding how each piece of equipment performs under various conditions. Smart pneumatics are progressively replacing traditional pneumatic devices due to their capacity to record and maintain data simultaneously. It's also helped operators/engineers discover the exact problem, saving time and money on maintenance. Even though smart pneumatic systems are pricey, some tier-1 manufacturers have already embraced them and are reaping the benefits.

COVID-19 Analysis

The COVID-19 epidemic has forced the closure of numerous building sites, power stations, chemical storage facilities, technology advancement firms, and other businesses. This has slowed the smart pneumatics market demand in recent months, and it is expected to continue during the forecast period. COVID-19 has already had an impact on smart pneumatics market size and sales. It is expected to harm market growth throughout the year. The largest smart pneumatics demand was previously observed in giant manufacturing countries such as the United States, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and China, which have been negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, resulting in a decline in demand for smart pneumatics market trends and Smart Pneumatics Market Share.

Furthermore, the lockdown’s potential impact is now unknown, and organizations’ financial recovery is entirely dependent on their cash reserves. Key companies in the smart pneumatics industry are projected to be able to afford a full lockdown for only a few months before having to change their investment plans. Various market players, for example, have put a stop to their service activity for a few weeks to save money. Employee layoffs were employed by a few COVID-19 participants to stay afloat during the health crisis.

Market Dynamics


The rising adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) across sectors is one of the major factors driving the growth of the smart pneumatics market. By integrating smart technologies into traditional industrial components, the industrial internet of things (IIoT) has taken control. Pneumatic systems were historically popular in industry because of their speed and dependability. The IIoT, on the other hand, has expanded its capabilities by allowing pneumatic equipment to generate data for analytical processes during the Smart Pneumatics Market Analysis. The said information has aided in energy efficiency maintenance, resulting in cheaper costs for producers. Furthermore, greater awareness of predictive maintenance among industrial producers is fuelling the Smart Pneumatics Market Trends and Smart Pneumatics Market Share.


The high cost of industrial valve projects and the lack of global standardization for smart pneumatic devices, however, are constraining Smart Pneumatics Market Size. Lack of a common platform for ethernet, Zigbee, and Profibus is limiting market growth, as these devices can easily be integrated into wireless systems across the IoT industry via these gateways, and the market for smart pneumatics is challenging to grow due to a lack of integration in the industrial and manufacturing sectors during the Smart Pneumatics Market Analysis.

Technology Analysis

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) plays a role, in which electric actuators with powerful electronics serve as information hubs, enabling direct access to a wide range of process and diagnostics data for preventative maintenance. Control valves with modulating actuators have improved positioning accuracy, allowing them to precisely modulate flow through pipes. This is for the flow of crude oil and natural gas in the upstream section, and the storage and transit of resources in the midstream segment. This is for the crude oil refining process in the downstream section.
