The Europe Safety Programmable Controllers market is valued at USD XX.XX billion in 2016 and is expected to reach a value of USD XX.XX billion by the end of 2022, growing at a projected CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period of 2017 - 2022.

The safety programmable controllers are a bit different from the traditional PLC systems. These controllers provide better monitoring facilities as well as self-diagnostics than the standard PLCs and are in fact, an improvement over the traditional hardwired electromechanical systems. The drivers of programmable safety controller adoption include a set of international standards such as, EN ISO 13849-1/2 (safety of machinery safety related parts of control systems), IEC/EN 62061 (safety of machinery functional safety of electrical, electronic and programmable electronic control systems), and IEC 61131 (programmable logic controllers). Moreover, with the existence of these safety standards, the industry has started moving faster towards incorporating the new safety technology into their products.

These safety programmable controllers have dual microprocessors and circuits for synchronous detection and constant monitoring of Flash and RAM. The standard PLC inputs have no means of testing the functionality of their input circuits, while programmable safety controllers actually do.

The share of value added to GDP by the services sector in the European Union seems to remain consistent, i.e. at around 24 percent as per the 2013 World Bank data. This indicates a great amount of production in most of the emerging and developing service sectors in the European region. Investing in this particular product segment can give the companies the competitive advantage that they want. Fortunately, the economic growth of the European region looks to be picking up from the recent slump. The market is growing slowly and given its supportive economic policies, the European market could be favourable for making new investments. As per the World Bank Data, the 2013 GDP annual growth rate was about 0.1 % and this number is estimated to grow in the coming years due to its growing domestic market demand and private consumption. The European Union has been quite progressive in terms of encouraging the setup of new industries or markets.
