New Research Report - Global Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Market 2017-2021

The following companies are recognised as the key players in the global programmable logic controller (PLC) market: Mitsubishi Electric, OMRON, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Siemens.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABB, Beckhoff Automation, Bosch Rexroth, Delta Electronics, Eaton, Fuji Electric, GE, Honeywell, IDEC, KEYENCE, Hitachi, Koyo Electronics, Panasonic, Toshiba, and Yokogawa.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is availability of integrated PLC-HMI in wide screen. The advanced versions PLC-HMI units come with a wider screen compared with the previous version. For instance, Unitronics launched the Vision all-in-one PLC series in 2015. The series has a seven-inch wide touch screen and an additional Vision700. The company claims that Vision700 does not compromise on the cost, feel, or performance of the PLC. Vision700 offers digital, high speed, and analog I/O, apart from PT100/thermocouple and weight/pressure measurement.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising technological advances in PLCs. PLCs have been serving the automation market for more than 40 years, and since 2016 the global PLC market is approaching its maturity. However, the recent advances in PLCs have greatly increased their capabilities in industrial automation solutions. The introduction of Programmable Automation Controller (PAC), is aiding the market in terms of better operability due to its advanced automation handling capabilities.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is growing preference for industrial PCs and DCS systems. In recent times, the industrial sectors are aiming to implement technology that helps raise their productivity, coupled with low levels of floor occupancy. New-generation industrial PCs are based on open embedded operating systems and combine the functions of a PLC and an operator panel into one unit. These features make industrial PCs a popular choice in sectors that require real-time information on the functioning of machine parts and productivity. For instance, the integration of dual RAID controller in a PC automatically reflects the data stored in the hard disks of interconnected devices.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.n
