The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in firm reliance on automation among important end-user businesses, reducing operational and other long-term economic impacts. As workforces were unable to function due to government-issued lockdowns, manufacturers had to adapt automated processes to avoid foreclosures. Market participants from around the world began automation in their processes up to some extent on their own or in way of partnerships. For instance, in March 2020, Epson Robots partnered with Air Automation Engineering (AEE) to provide technical support and service in the Midwest of the U.S.

Moreover, the upsurge in investment and ongoing development in the manufacturing sector is anticipated to propel the growth of the market in the coming years. Industries, including automotive, aerospace, and heavy engineering, are increasingly digitalizing and transforming their manufacturing process. Incorporating IIoT at manufacturing plants plays a vital role in connecting systems and devices with a network. Technologies, including AI, machine learning, cloud computing, and others are aiding new automation developments, which are anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period.

Component Type Insights

The industrial robots segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of CAGR 12% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030. This growth is a result of manufacturing companies’ extensive use of industrial robots and state-of-the-art machinery to optimize operations that require speed, strength, and accuracy. Industrial automation through robots reduces raw material waste, labor requirements, and energy usage and also ensures a smooth and continuous workflow in the manufacturing process, which is expected to drive segment growth.

The sensors component type segment recorded a significant revenue share of over 22% in 2022 owing to its use and need in automation and control system functioning and processes. Sensors are small in size and offer instant and accurate data and readings which are vital in automation processes. The different type of sensors includes temperature sensors, humidity sensors, torque sensors, and more. These sensors assist industrial automation robots in making the manufacturing process and operation smart and efficient, which is expected to fuel the market growth further.

Control System Insights

The distributed control systems (DCS) segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 34% in 2022. As a result of the fast pace of adoption of IIOT preference of industrialists to deploy automated control systems, which is driving the market growth for DCS. Additionally, the advent of 5G and its adoption in the power generation sector is expected to boost the integration of IoT and DCS using 5G technology for better output efficiency.

Global Industrial automation and control systems market share, by control system, 2022 (%)

The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) control system segment are anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period owing to the increase in adoption of industry 4.0. The SCADA control system is used across various industry verticals such as aerospace & defense, automotive, chemical, energy & utilities, manufacturing, and healthcare, among others due to its ability to gather data in real-time and feed it instantly to the controller systems. The growth in demand of manufacturers for smart and digitized production processes for increasing production efficiency is also expected to drive the segment growth further.

Vertical Insights

The healthcare segment is expected to dominate the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of around 11% over the forecast period owing to the consultation and services offered in order to treat patients’ health issues such as curative, palliative, rehabilitative, and curative. Automation and control improve operational costs, and supply chain errors, and improve customer center, which accounts for better care and treatment of patients. Automation has also enabled doctors to conduct surgeries remotely or with minimal human interference for added precision and safety, which is anticipated to drive the segment growth.

The manufacturing vertical segment recorded the largest market share of over 17% in 2022 owing to the ongoing trend of autonomous processes in factories and industries using automated processes and systems. The segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 10% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030. Manufacturers are able to reduce process time and error rates in factory processes with automated systems. These systems are software or technology operated which allow little to no human intervention. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost the segment growth over the forecast period.
