Furthermore, IoT-enabled manufacturing plants allow manufacturing companies to optimize business operations, product and services innovation, and enhance supply chain and logistics management. Thus, manufacturers from different sectors such as industrial equipment, healthcare, defense, and electronics are seeking solutions that cater to specific needs.

Automation has been constantly evolving over the past few years, enabling manufacturers to simultaneously manage multiple tasks. The emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the major factor promoting industrial automation, where processes are restructured for smarter, real-time, and efficient decision-making in production. Growing penetration of IoT is enabling manufacturers to modernize their operations at two basic levels, namely in providing connected products and connecting supply chains.

Development of IoT-enabled sensors that provide various benefits such as digital network proficiency and self-diagnostics help the manufacturing industries to meet distinct industry requirements. Furthermore, increasing spending on research and development activities by sensor providers facilitates the development of advanced sensors that meet the requirements of different industrial plants.

Numerous initiatives at the industry level have been promoting and advertising IoT applications and their use cases. For example, the U.S. government launched a program called the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) that aimed to boost the adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies for manufacturing innovative products. Additionally, ecosystems of IoT solution providers, including hardware, software, and services vendors are working toward a unified and common goal of increasing awareness and adoption of IoT.

However, the growing threat of cyberattacks in North America is estimated to hinder the growth of the market over the forecast period. Exchange of large volumes of information between shop floors and cloud and among stakeholders across a supply chain enhances the vulnerability of systems to threats from internet sabotage attacks. Interconnected manufacturing processes increase exposure to security risks, which have financial and critical impacts on connected production processes.

Analytics-based solutions find a wide range of applications across various industries such as aerospace & defense, pharmaceutical, life science, oil and gas, and automotive.

These solutions can be used for predictive maintenance systems in the manufacturing sector to reduce downtime and increase production. Additionally, predictive analytics help manufacturers to understand issues related to machines and this helps them increase productivity and simultaneously boost the profitability of organizations

The use of cloud computing solutions in manufacturing helps industries to control and monitor their plant processes by synchronizing data through a single point. The solution also allows users to access information via the internet. Cloud computing is considered to be a key solution for digital transformation. The need for faster deployment, development, and delivery of solutions, along with higher flexibility, is further bolstering the demand for cloud computing solutions.

The service segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 17.6% during the forecast period. The manufacturing industry is undergoing a digital transformation, and the service segment is growing rapidly as a result. The growth is attributed to few reasons, including increasing complexity of manufacturing processes, as manufacturing processes become more complex, there is a growing need for specialized services to help manufacturers keep their operations running smoothly. The rising demand for customized products due to which manufacturers are increasingly under pressure to provide customized products to their customers. This requires a high level of flexibility and agility, which can be difficult to achieve without the help of service providers. Data is becoming increasingly important in the manufacturing industry. Service providers can help manufacturers collect, analyze, and use data to improve their operations.

Deployment Insights

The on-premise segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 52.9% in 2022 as it is expected to remain the preferred method of deployment among small & medium enterprises (SMEs). SMEs are reluctant to switch to the cloud owing to a lack of awareness of its advantages. However, this scenario is projected to change gradually over the forecast period.

The hosted segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR of 19.7% during the forecast period owing to the flexibility provided by this type of deployment. It allows users to access connected manufacturing machines from remote locations through mobile devices as well as desktop computers. Additionally, it offers benefits such as cost efficiency, easy accessibility and deployment, and minimal upgrade and maintenance requirement.

Country Insights

U.S. is anticipated to register highest revenue share of 80.3% in the North America digital transformation in  manufacturing market and is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 17.0% over the forecast period, owing to increasing investments in Internet-of-Things (IoT), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and big data. Companies operating in North America are increasingly opting for the digitization of legacy systems. Furthermore, manufacturing companies are making considerable investments in digital technologies and related assets to increase production efficiency as well as to reduce operational costs.
