The Worldwide Smart Factory Industry is Expected to Reach $137.6 Billion by 2027

·10-min read

Dublin, June 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Smart Factory Market By Component, By Solution, By Regional Outlook, Industry Analysis Report and Forecast, 2021 - 2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Global Smart Factory Market size is expected to reach $137.6 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 9.9% CAGR during the forecast period. A smart factory is considered as a concept where equipment and machines are capable to enhance processes with the help of self-optimization and automation. The advantages of a smart factory go beyond the physical production of goods and into functions, such as planning, supply chain logistics, and even product development. The smart factory market is bifurcated by product type, into machine vision systems and industrial robotics, among others, and based on technology, into SCADA, PLZ, and HMI, among others.

The vendors of smart factory solutions are striving hard to create solutions that are capable enough to improve the quality and quantity of products made by the makers of foods and beverages. In the food & beverages manufacturing sector along with the companies involved in the processing, packaging, and distribution of food & beverages, high-quality standards hold great value. With the help of automation techniques, the food & beverages sector provides design flexibility, unique and integrated safety solutions, and sophisticated software tools for regulating the operations of machines. Food manufacturers are putting hefty investments in changing their conventional manufacturing units into advanced units. Therefore, the food & beverages industry is witnessing a high adoption rate of smart factory technologies and advanced manufacturing equipment.

Automation in the smart factories deploys different kinds of control devices like motors, sensors, drives, and switches & relays and network technologies like wired, wireless, and radio frequency identification (RFID). Integrated systems like Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Information Technology (IT) system, Programmable Logic Control (PLC), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) are made to fulfill the particular needs of a manufacturing facility. These industrial control systems are able to manage the process and simplify the flow of materials across the manufacturing line. Smart factories also deploy industrial robots like articulated robots, Cartesian robots, SCARA (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm or Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm) robots, cylindrical and other robots for several manufacturing processes like welding, painting, heavy lifting, and conveyance, etc.

COVID-19 Impact:

In 2020, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has created an adverse impact on the overall smart factory market, causing a lower shipment of components and solutions of smart factories and the revenues produced from them. Due to this, a decline was observed in the development trend of the market during the first quarter of 2020. However, this trend had been anticipated to disrupt in the next half of the year as the demand is expected to increase because of the increasing concern for smart automation, energy, and resource efficiency.

The COVID-19 pandemic has considerably impacted the value chain of the smart factory market. The US, China, South Korea, and Japan, which have been negatively impacted by the pandemic, are responsible for a major share of the global smart factory manufacturing. The discrete industries and process industries are observing a reduced demand, which is expected to remain the same for some time due to the worldwide slowdown.

Component Outlook

Based on Component, the market is segmented into Industrial Sensors, Industrial Robots, Industrial 3D Printers and Machine Vision Systems. The industrial 3D printing segment is expected to showcase the largest growth rate during the forecast period. The development of this segment is credited to the growing adoption in industries like aerospace & defense, automotive, semiconductor & electronics, and food & beverages. In the food & beverages industry, 3D printing technology is highly utilized to make molds for various kinds of food like hard candies, chocolates, and cakes. This supports the development of the market for industrial 3D printing for the food & beverages industry.

Solution Outlook

Based on Solution, the market is segmented into Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Plant Asset Management (PAM), SCADA, Industrial Safety and Others. The PAM segment is expected to showcase the biggest growth rate during the forecast years. The development of this segment is due to the growing installation of PAM solutions in process and discrete industries to develop an exhaustive data repository associated with various equipment installed in these plants, right from their uptime performance to their life cycle cost evaluation.

Industry Vertical Outlook

Based on Industry Vertical, the market is segmented into Automotive, Semiconductor & Electronics, Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals, Food & Beverages, Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defense, Medical Devices and Others. The medical devices industry is boosted by development and technological innovations. The industry has observed major growth due to the development of cutting-edge medical devices with the help of novel technologies. In the medical devices industry, smart factory solutions assist enhance manufacturing processes, planning, third-party services, technology assessment, and remote support. Smart factory technologies also assist in decreasing the recalls and wastes and surge the profitability of the companies involved in the manufacturing of medical devices because of the accuracy in manufacturing.

Regional Outlook

Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. North America is quickly emerging as a hub for industries. Hence, there is a massive demand for refurbishing the existing infrastructure with modern technologies. Smart factors of the fourth industrial revolution may reveal the key to efficiency for makers. And every maker - those from already "running smart" to those not yet put investment in smart factory technologies can adopt the cutting-edge technologies that will yield business value.
