Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Use of PSDI. Safeguarding the employees in the workplace is an important task, as there are many hazards that are associated with the operation of machines. The technique of presence-sensing device initiation (PSDI) is one of the prevailing trends in the industry as it allows a high rate of production without ignoring the safety aspect. In PSDI applications, when a machine operator reaches through the safety light current to load the part into a machine, the machine stops functioning as the safety light curtain prevents the functioning of the machine.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rise in industrial automation. The increase in industrial automation will drive the market for light curtains. Industrial automation can result in reducing the manufacturing time dramatically. The level of industrial automation will be affected by the demand for automation equipment, which is seen in the developed economies that are heading toward commodity production. Industrial automation facilitates the performance of monotonous tasks, better allocation of resources, and improves the quality of the products manufactured. Industrial automation is directly linked to the performance of end-users, especially those that rely on high-volume output and process repeatability. These end-user industries, which have a high reliance on automation include the metal and materials, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, oil and gas, automotive, and packaging industries.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Intense competition. The market for light curtains is marked by fierce competition as the vendors in the market try to outperform their rivals to grab a greater share. Vendors in the market compete on the basis of product differentiation and innovation.
