Industrial and factory automation refers to technology in which repetitive processes carried over in various industries are made self-executing without direct human intervention. This incorporates several sensors, actuators and computing or control units which work in synchronization to perform the routine tasks. Continuous increase in demand for consumer goods both consumable and non-consumable type is converging attention of the industries to adopt automation in its production lines. High production volume with uncompromised product quality has been the major focus for almost all the players in various industry verticals and this can be easily achieved through industrial and factory automation. Factory automation generally employs robotic manipulators with various degrees of freedom to perform the repetitive steps in processes such as assembling, fabrication, logistics and so on at a faster speed and unparalleled precision. Evolution of vision guided industrial robots is availing new opportunities to factory automation in processes such as inspections, testing, material handling, assembling, machining and several others.

Industrial and Factory Automation Market has been segmented by system type, hardware, industries and geography. By system type the industrial and factory automation market is scrutinized by control systems, software, machine vision, instrumentation, sensors, power backup, services and others.
