Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Industrial Controls and Factory Automation Market: ABB, Emerson Electric, GE, Honeywell International, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric and Siemens
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: The need for smart factories, i.e., automated factories, has increased globally, and this trend will gain considerable traction during the forecast period. Manufacturing-based countries like China and Germany have started to automate their existing factories to stay ahead of the competition. Automation enables better communication and precise coordination within factories, and ensures flexibility in their underlying processes.
According to the report, the need to replace legacy automation systems with new highly efficient automation solutions for process improvements is one of the primary drivers in the market. Automation solutions enable organizations to take fast and predictive maintenance steps that prevent the failure of plant operations and increase productivity.
Further, the report states that the switching cost associated with automation systems from one vendor to another is very high, acting as a challenge for end-user adoption.
