Introduction: -

Industrial automation involves the application of control systems, including computers or robots, and information technologies for large-scale handling of processes that humans previously handled. The process enables better direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems. Industrial automation enables capacity utilization, risk mitigation, responsiveness, resiliency, and agility. It provides many advantages such as enhanced efficiency, control, precision, faster time to market, and higher cost-effectiveness. The global industrial automation market includes players engaged in developing and launching various industrial automation related systems, technologies, and products. This market is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.


Growth Drivers:

Globally, end-user sectors such as pharmaceutical, gas, chemicals & materials, and industries including automotive and electronics are seen to be increasingly adopting automation solutions to decrease their overall labor and operating costs. Conventional manufacturing mechanisms are proving to be vastly inadequate in meeting the current global requirements. As a result, manufacturing companies are investing hugely on industrial automation technologies to enhance their system efficiency and eliminate production errors caused by manual labor. This rapid shift from traditional manual assistance to automation processes and solutions is fueling the growth of the global industrial automation market.

Moreover, governments across major developed and developing regions around the globe are seen to be rolling out various favorable policies and initiatives for supporting and encouraging the adoption of different industrial automation technologies and systems for the digitalization of their respective manufacturing sectors. For instance, in September 2021, the U.K. government announced plans to invest $180.0 million into the 2nd round of its “Manufacturing Made Smarter” scheme, which aims at encouraging innovation and interconnectivity in the country’s manufacturing sector. The increasing number of such policies and initiatives is expected to significantly bolster the growth of the global industrial automation market during the forecast period.

Additionally, with the rapid emergence of the fourth industrial revolution, major tech-savvy companies across the globe are seen to emphasize significantly developing and launching new and advanced technologies for use in different end-user verticals. To achieve this, they are focusing on adopting various strategies such as partnership, collaborations, and mergers & acquisitions.

Furthermore,  the emergence of the 5G wireless technology across the globe, the growing implementation of digital twins and AI technology in the manufacturing sector, the surging application of the SCADA and HMI technologies, the proliferating demand for innovative industrial automation & networking technologies, the rising need for digital transformation across end-user industries, and the escalating investments in various advanced technologies are among other primary factors driving the growth of the global industrial automation market.

However, factors such as the limited availability of skilled labor, the requirement of high initial capital, the growing compatibility issues, the dearth of awareness regarding the advantages of automated processes are expected to act as major hindrances to the growth of the global industrial automation market during the forecast period of 2022-2030.
