Stringent regulations regarding workers’ safety in hazardous working areas is another major factor that is spurring the demand for factory automation by various end-use industries. As the labor costs are escalating, the need to reduce the amount of direct labor and decrease operational costs will propel the growth of global factory automation market in the forthcoming years.
By product, the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to increased focus on reduction in operational costs, better utilization of production assets across the supply chain, and improvement in operation. Automated products based on sensor technology are also poised to grow at a significant rate owing to declining prices of sensors worldwide.
Geographically, North America holds the largest share of global factory automation market owing to a booming automotive industry which heavily relies on robotic systems and automation equipment to perform multiple tasks rapidly. Europe will also witness a significant growth due to increasing labor costs along with the presence of key factory automation market players, such as Schneider Electric and ABB, in the region. However, APAC region is anticipated to witness the fastest market growth during the forecast period.
This growth is attributed to growing industrial sectors in China, Japan, India, and South Korea. Furthermore, offshore assembling for major MNCs by contract manufacturing companies in the emerging economies will boost the regional growth in the coming years. Restraints such as high initial investment and operational costs coupled with a lack of skilled personnel will hinder the growth of global factory automation market during the forecast period.
