Government Initiatives and Supportive Policies to Drive Market Growth

Governments in Europe and Asia-Pacific are promoting the adoption of industrial automation technologies and systems for the digitalization of their respective manufacturing sectors. For instance, in 2019, the Chinese government invested $580 million in developing industrial robots under its Made in China 2025 plan. Under this plan, the government aims to upgrade the manufacturing capabilities of Chinese industries. Under its five-year Robot Industry Development Plan, China plans to develop top robot manufacturers, create 8–10 industrial clusters, and increase its robot density. In September 2020, the U.K. government announced plans to invest around $185 million into the second round of its “Manufacturing Made Smarter” scheme, which is aimed at promoting interconnectivity and innovation in the country’s manufacturing sector.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Industrial Automation Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically impacted several manufacturing and processing industries across the globe. The industries severely affected include oil & gas, construction machinery, rubber & plastic machinery, and power generation. These industries faced a high impact due to changes in consumer behavior, low production, and dependency on end-use markets and are expected to recover slowly. Some of the moderately impacted industries include mining, robotics, building technology, electronics, paper & pulp, and processing equipment. These industries are expected to make a speedy recovery due to the broad range of applications they cater to. The least hit industries include agricultural machinery, food & beverage processing & packaging, and medical & scientific manufacturers as they offer essential goods globally.

The industrial sector was severely impacted by the pandemic due to the reduced consumption of high-cost products and the consumers’ inclination to spend on only the most essential goods & services. During the nation-wide lockdowns, consumers restricted their spending on consumer goods, high-cost electronics, textiles, automobiles, and machinery, which impacted the major application sectors for the industrial automation market. With countries resuming trade and economic activity and stability in consumer lifestyles, the spending on these products and services is expected to increase, boosting the demand for automation solutions over the coming years. The market is expected to recover in 2021 and 2022 due to restrictions on the volume of human labor allowed at manufacturing facilities.

Key Findings in the Industrial Automation Market Study:

Enterprise-level Controls Accounted for the Largest Market Share in 2021

Based on component, the industrial automation market is segmented into plant instrumentation, plant-level controls, and enterprise-level controls. The enterprise-level controls segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021. This segment’s large share is attributed to the benefits of implementing PLM, ERP, and MES solutions at the enterprise level. PLM solutions promote cross-team collaboration across departments such as innovation, R&D, regulatory compliance, quality, and packaging. They enable cross-functional management of product development introduction, leveraging portfolio management capabilities to deliver visibility and optimize results across the product development phase. These systems aid companies to maintain and manage records of the organization’s lifecycle, further resulting in huge cost savings.

The Fully-automatic Segment to Witness Rapid Growth During the Forecast Period

Based on the mode of automation, the market is segmented into semi-automatic and fully-automatic systems. The fully-automatic segment is expected to register the higher CAGR during the forecast period. The segment’s rapid growth is attributed to the increasing installation of complete automation solutions in end-use industries such as chemicals & materials, metals & mining, oil & gas, and paper & pulp. Fully-automatic solutions aid the companies in these industries to efficiently manage activities on-site and in offices. Mining & exploration activities are highly labor-intensive and require the proper functioning of management systems, which is efficiently facilitated by ERP solutions. Additionally, these companies also use robots and automated systems that assist the human workforce in high-intensity tasks, offering enhanced productivity.

The Oil & Gas Segment Accounted for the Largest Market Share in 2021

In 2021, the oil & gas segment accounted for the largest share of the industrial automation market. Companies in the oil & gas sector are increasingly implementing automation technologies to improve decision-making and troubleshooting and increase the performance and efficiency of oil & gas exploration activities. Some of the major areas highly influenced by automation in the oil & gas sector include drilling operations, diagnostics & inspections, pipeline monitoring systems, weather monitoring systems, and pressure & flow systems. Drilling is one of the major areas that require automation due to its high costs and high safety risks for the workers. Automated monitoring systems are being increasingly deployed for pipe monitoring applications due to the rise in criminal attempts to steal pipelines.

Asia-Pacific Commanded the Largest Market Share

In 2021, Asia-Pacific commanded the largest share of the industrial automation market, followed by Europe and North America, due to the presence of large-scale industries in these regions. Asian countries, including China and Japan, are the top manufacturers and end users of industrial robots, sensors, and machine vision systems. Additionally, India, China, and South Korea have robust automotive, consumer goods, electronics, and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries. Moreover, government initiatives and policies supporting the digitization of manufacturing plants and investments in the IIoT in these countries are major factors boosting the adoption of industrial automation solutions.
