Key Growth Drivers

  • Many industries like manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and materials, pharmaceuticals, and materials and chemicalsĀ implement automation systems and prefer to use tried-and-true standards and technology to ensure reliable, secure, and consistent operations, which is driving the market for industrial automation to grow quickly.
  • Industrial automation acts as a catalyst for greater dependability and efficiency that raises the return on investment (ROI). Industrial automation decreases production costs while raising output rate and quality through the use of cutting-edge, integrated technology.
  • As automation involves installing hardware like highly precise robots, sensory-perceptive machines, and wheels that support mobility, it necessitates a substantial financial investment, which results in very high upfront costs.
  • In 2020, the manufacturing and industrial sectors have been greatly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has, however, considerably accelerated the growth of industrial automation across the manufacturing sector as a result of the increased adoption of industry 4.0 over the past few years.

Key Trends by Market Segment
