It is expected to significantly impact a wide range of businesses, shareholders, business models, and favorable government regulations to promote the adoption across industries worldwide. The automation sector is expected to witness a surge during the forecast period owing to the growing awareness on the usage of cloud computing platforms and technological progressions in semiconductors and electronic devices.

COVID-19 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 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.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is characterized by a high degree of innovation. Companies are investing significant capital in joint ventures, research, and development in modern technologies. For instance, in March 2021, Suez, an American water-service company, and Schneider Electric partnered for the development of a joint venture to deliver innovative digital solutions for water cycle management. This is expected to combine SUEZ's technical expertise in the water business with EcoStruxure. Similarly, in May 2022, Emerson Electric Co. launched their new automation solution, TopWorx DX Partial Stroke Test with HART 7, which increases safety and automation by facilitating a discrete emergency shutdown valve.

U.S. Industrial Automation And Control Systems Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is characterized by a high level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity by the leading players. For instance, in September 2021, Rockwell Automation, Inc. announced the acquisition of Plex Systems. Plex Systems is a leading cloud-native smart manufacturing platform that offers the only single-instance, multi-tenant Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) manufacturing platform. Similarly, in April 2021, Accenture plc completed the acquisition of Pollux, an industrial automation solution provider. This acquisition is in line with Accenture plc’s aim to leverage Pollux’s experience and expertise in automation and robotics solutions.

The market also experiences industry competition influenced by the impact of regulations. The market is characterized by numerous manufacturing companies leveraging factory automation systems, and due to considerable government assistance, the region is a pioneer of industrial automation. The rules & regulations have driven businesses to implement technologies to enhance their production capacity while adhering to regulatory requirements.

For instance, the government has adopted policies such as ‘Make in America’ and ‘Bipartisan Innovation Act’ to boost the industrial economy by increased manufacturing and investment in technological aspects in the country. This is expected to boost demand for industrial automation and control systems in manufacturing units and factories. Moreover, COVID-19 has resulted in firm reliance on automation among important end-user businesses, reducing operational and other long-term economic impacts.

Control System Insights

The distributed control systems (DCS) segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.0% in 2023. This segment is growing as a result of the fast pace of adoption of IIOT preference of industrialists to deploy automated control systems. 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.

The supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) control system segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR 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 grow with the highest CAGR 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, 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.
