Industrial Automation Market – Snapshot

Industrial automation refers to the utilization of control systems, such as robots or computers, and information technologies for the purpose of handling of various machineries and processes within an industry to replace the work done by a human being. It is the second step that goes beyond phenomenon of mechanization in the form of industrialization. The growth of the global industrial automation market can be ascribed to the growing focus on optimum utilization of resources and industrial automation. In addition to that, augmented utilization of enabling technologies in the areas of manufacturing together with increased adoption of industrial robots in the various areas of the manufacturing sector are likely to widen the scope of the global industrial automation market in the years to come.

In recent times, governments have also played a significant role in encouraging industrial automation so as to cater to the need of mass production for the ever increasing demand of the rising population.

Increases Flexibility and Quality in the Manufacturing Processes

Earlier the basic purpose of automation lied on the need to optimize productivity and to diminish the human operators associated cost such as benefits and wages. However, now the purpose of automation has shifted from optimum productivity to optimum quality and flexibility in the various processes of manufacturing.

Some of the benefits of industrial automation are mentioned below:

  • High flexibility
  • High productivity
  • High Quality
  • High Accuracy of Information
  • High safety

Industrial automation also offers high safety for workers. It helps in handling hazardous tasks, thereby reducing the risk of life and health for human workers.

Such multiple benefits of industrial automation are likely to amplify the growth of the global industrial automation market in the years to come. More manufacturers are installing industrial robots to facilitate convenience in the production and distribution processes. As the adoption of industrial robots rise, the global industrial automation market is estimated to achieve high growth in the years to come.
