Automation refers to the integration of mechanical systems with IT technology. These systems are utilized to standardize reliable production systems. Effortless monitoring, reduction of waste and optimization of the production process are distinct advantages possessed by the automation systems, in comparison to the conventional manual labor. The use of advanced technology offers the customers an enhanced quality and standardization of dependable products at much lower costs, within a limited time frame.
With the advent of industrial Internet of Things, the next industrial revolution has created a connected environment and offers complete operational visibility to facilitate real-time decisions. This performance enhancement of the automation systems has led to a drastic improvement in the industrial sector with research indicating a revenue growth by almost 70% and an increased productivity of the workforce by 30%. The world leaders in factory automation are fueling the connected enterprise strategies, as the industry is moving towards increased usage of IoT applications. The deployment of smarter manufacturing infrastructure, which is based on IoT techniques, helps companies establish and maintain a wealth of knowledge across control methods, manufacturing and business processes.
The factory automation and industrial control units are prominently found in the automotive industry, which occupies the highest share in the global market. Rise in the volume of automobile production units across the developing countries in the APAC region has consequently led to an increase in the adoption of automation and control equipment, which has driven the growth of the factory automation market. Foreign direct investments and growing middle-class population has resulted in a tremendous rise in the domestic demand in the developing regions. Free-trade agreements and economic partnerships are indirect factors that have contributed to the overall growth of the automotive industry, globally.
The factory automation and industrial control market is led by Europe. With an enormous presence of manufacturing and production units in the region, the advent of IoT in various industries has enhanced the production capacity and led to the optimization of manufacturing processes. The emphasis on sourcing components through the Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle Eastern countries, for assembly by major multinational firms, has been a major propelling factor for the factory automation market in the Middle East.
