Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) Market in Discrete Industries 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global manufacturing execution systems (MES) market in discrete industries: Emerson Electric, GE, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Siemens.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABB, Accenture, Dassault Systèmes, Honeywell International, HCL Technologies, Hitachi, MPDV, Parsec Automation, SAP, TCS, and Wipro.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A current trend which is influencing the market is the adoption of cloud-based MES in discrete industries. Cloud-based MES-as-a-service is likely to be the next logical step in the evolution of automation technology in discrete industries. End-users are becoming more comfortable with the concept of service-based technology architecture. Automation providers and end-users can significantly reduce costs, achieve greater flexibility, and enhance functionality by shifting toward cloud-based environment.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the integration of PLM, MES, and ERP. Manufacturing execution systems (MES), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and product lifecycle management (PLM) have traditionally been different parts of discrete manufacturing environment. However, these isolated systems together can help organizations create data to get an overall look of company's functioning. Discrete manufacturing industries such as automotive are leading the way with this integration. PLM in discrete industries focuses on product innovation and helps manufacturers to develop and launch profitable products. It contains all the information regarding product design and related manufacturing processes.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the high upfront and upgrading costs. MES are difficult to evaluate and expensive to own and maintain. Manufacturers often find difficult to realize adequate ROI by implementing MES due to the ever-changing IT landscape and various technological components involved.
