Smart Manufacturing Market Heading Up

The global smart manufacturing market stood at US$ 152.3 billion in 2017

The global smart manufacturing market stood at US$ 152.3 billion in 2017. Witnessing a tremendous rise during the period from 2019 to 2026, the revenue in this smart manufacturing market is expected to reach US$ 530.24 billion by the end of the forecast period.

Siemens AG, ABB Ltd., Emerson Electric Company, Schneider Electric, General Electric Company, Honeywell International Inc., and Mitsubishi Electric are some of the key vendors of smart manufacturing across the world. These players are focusing aggressively on innovation, as well as on including advanced technologies in their existing products. Over the coming years, they are also expected to take up partnerships and mergers and acquisitions as their key strategy for business development, states the smart manufacturing market study.

In the key event that can create undulation across smart manufacturing sector, in September 2018, Zhejiang Aishida Electric Company Limited invested over USD 147 million on smart manufacturing facilities including industrial robots. Reportedly, the firm is projected to set up smart manufacturing unit featuring robots in Taizhou in Zhejiang Province along with “intelligent valley” in Shanghai.

Over the past several years, smart manufacturing has been a topic of conversation among the global manufacturing experts, leaders and strategists. Smart manufacturing is a technology-driven approach that utilizes internet-connected machinery to monitor the production process in real time. Smart manufacturing is expected to bring next industrial revolution in the global manufacturing sector. The continuously increasing investments in production activities, expanding mindfulness about advance and better production technologies, and the need for upgradation & modernization of control systems has become necessary to compete at international standards. All these factors are fuelling the adoption of smart manufacturing technology. Using smart manufacturing technologies companies are increasing the efficiency of their manufacturing plants and production process through the use of real time data and digital technologies.

The global manufacturing sector has been tormented by several factors including uncertainties in the supply of raw materials, rising operational costs, intense competition by local players and many others. As a result, various industry players are looking for options and ways through which they can reduce costs, improve product quality and make manufacturing more efficient. So the improved productivity and reduced cost structure of manufacturing is propelling the growth of smart manufacturing market globally. Smart manufacturing technologies have witnessed a significant growth in market as it offers ample technological solutions to small and medium sized enterprises and connected supply chains to its users. Whereas factors such as high initial cost of set up, and the probability of cyber-attacks to breach the security are hampering the growth of this market. Frequent investments by global players in the research and development activities related to smart manufacturing in order to come up with innovative products is expected to drive the growth of this market.

Immense Need For Cost Reduction & Raising Production To Fuel Growth

“Mounting need for reducing costs, enhancing product quality, and large-scale production of goods & services is projected to impel the growth of smart manufacturing market in the years ahead,” says the author of this study. Apart from this, massive investments witnessed in the manufacturing sector along with the requirement for modernizing control systems will further spur the expansion of smart manufacturing market in the ensuing years. In addition to this, the rapid acceptance of smart manufacturing systems by various small & mid-sized firms across the manufacturing sector will further stretch the growth graph of smart manufacturing market towards the positive direction.

High initial costs incurred during the deployment of smart manufacturing systems, however, are likely to restrict the surge of smart manufacturing market in the forthcoming years.

Massive Use of Smart Manufacturing Technologies to Aid APAC’s Dominance

Regionally, Asia Pacific has been leading the worldwide smart manufacturing market and is anticipated to continue on the dominant position in the years to come, states the smart manufacturing market study. Massive investments for expansion of manufacturing sector along with supportive government legislations are the main factor behind the dominance of the Asia Pacific smart manufacturing market. Huge presence of manufacturing firms across countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and India adopting smart manufacturing technologies is another significant factor that is supporting the growth of this regional smart manufacturing market.
