Factory Automation Market Overview
The global factory automation market is estimated to reach US$ YY million by 2028 from the recorded market size of worth US$ YY million in 2020, growing at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Factory automation is the linking up of factory equipment to increase the efficiency and reliability of process control systems. This drives to improved quality, increased flexibility, lower costs and less environmental impact. Factory automation uses control systems, such as robots or computers, and data technologies for managing various machinery & processes in the industry to substitute a human being. Earlier, the automation design was to improve productivity and decrease the cost associated with human operators.
However, today, automation has changed to improving quality and flexibility in the manufacturing process. In the automobile industry, the establishment of pistons into the engine is handled manually with an error rate of 1-1.5%. Presently, this task is accomplished using automated machinery with an error rate of 0.00001%. Moreover, the growing adoption of components, machinery, smart systems, and equipment to better manufacturing processes by automation has driven smart factories' demand for product development, supply chain logistics and planning.
Factory Automation Market Dynamics
The increasing inclination of consumers towards high-capacity production is triggering the demand for factory automation in recent times. Growing demand for high quality goods creates a strong opportunity for the factory automation market growth.
Increasing demand for high quality goods with high-capacity production is expected to increase the market size
Growing usage of machines, the demand for high-quality goods with high-capacity production in various industries, and the growing installation and selection of smart devices drive the growth of the factory automation market during the forecast period. Smart devices can interact with each other with the cloud and also within the factory. Moreover, factory automation leads to the automation of material handling & manufacturing by utilizing smarter manufacturing infrastructure. Industries are executing automation to enhance productivity and decrease labor costs. Embedded vision is a technology that optimizes the factory production floor in areas such as raw materials handling and assembly.
Factory automation uses pneumatic technology because it operates much more economically than hydraulic technology. With the selection of automation, control loops were added to machine operation. These control loops are two types, open control loops that enable human input and closed loops that are fully automated. The main advantage of these control loops is an increase in production and quality and a reduction in errors.
Growing utilization of factory automation in various end-user is expected to boost the market
The factories are undergoing a factory automation boom. The use of robots has been significant in automobile production for years. However, with sectors looking to increase production, everything from the production of construction machinery, electronic devices, and logistics facilities is handled by robots, giving factory automation manufacturers a wide horizon for business. Moreover, the manufacturers are seeming to increase their productivity with expanding market and international trades. Factory automation will act as a prominent factor to enhance productivity. There have been various recent incidents where shifting from manual to robots has tremendously increased the factory's productivity. For instance, a factory located in Dongguan, China, has replaced 90% of human workers with robots. The scenario resulted in raising the production by 250% and dropping defects by 80%
Furthermore, China is one of the highest manufacturing countries globally. According to the International Federation of Robotics, China had over 780,000 industrial robots active in 2019, the most in the world. The World Robotics Industrial Robots report estimated that almost 2.7 million industrial robots are currently working in factories worldwide, which is an increase of 12%. Moreover, the technology can boost company growth and, in turn, create new product lines and jobs. Automation can handle up to 45% of repetitive work, allowing workers to invest time in higher-value tasks such as problem-solving and develop new ideas. The primary investment associated with switching from a human production line to an automated production line is very high. Also, material costs are included in training employees to handle this new advanced equipment.
Lack of skilled and trained professionals is expected to hinder the market growth
Lack of skilled & trained professionals, the high investment cost of the factory automation systems and rising awareness regarding security are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.
Factory Automation Market Segment Analysis
By end-users, the market is segmented into oil & gas, chemicals, paper & pulp, pharmaceuticals, mining & metals, food & beverages, energy & power, automotive, electronic & semiconductors, aerospace & defense, medical devices and others.
Factory automation standardizes industrial processes and ensures consistent, superior-quality results; thus, it has high demand in reliable, qualitative manufacturing industries. Moreover, it fulfills the demand for mass production in industries due to its minimal human intervention, improved quality, and lesser labor expenses, culminating in minimum overall operational cost. The demand for factory automation has increased due to the growing adoption of the industry 4.0 trend and IoT-enabled smart technologies.
Automotive manufacturers emphasize robotics and automation technologies to update automotive manufacturing in quality, productivity, safety, and cost metrics. Ford, Mercedes-Benz, GM, BMW and every other manufacturer use "co-bot" on their factory floors to perform numerous functions, such as car painting, assembly line work and welding. Using automated systems in such settings can place manufacturers light-years ahead in the race for productivity and speed in manufacturing. Automakers need more agile and nuanced robotics to perform frequently sophisticated assemblies. Hence the companies are making huge investments in the factory automation market. For instance, In 2021- Startup Symbio Robotics has been awarded funding of US$30M to extend Factory Automation Using AI. The company has formed partnerships with automakers and $30 million in venture funding to be used for "breathing new life into existing industrial robots.
Moreover, in 2020- Hyundai Motor has bought an 80% stake in robot maker Boston Dynamics from SoftBank Group to expand factory automation and autonomous design drones, cars and robots. Hyundai has offered US$880 million for the 80% stake. The market share of the automotive industry in the factory automation market is expected to increase in the forecast period, with rising sales of vehicles and companies seeking to increase their production rates.
