Industries are implementing industrial automation and control systems to boost efficiency and save labor costs. In addition, the industrial industry has been quickly adopting new technologies and enhanced networking architectures due to Industry 4.0.

Small standalone units to several linked, expansive work cells dispersed around the manufacturing floor make up the automation systems. Every system is made to perform a specific duty, which lowers costs, improves quality, increases operator safety, and increases output. Technologies like analytics, cloud computing, and mobility assist businesses in effectively achieving their goals. Additionally, the expansion of smart manufacturing, which embraces and adopts the benefits of internet connectivity, is driven by the penetration of the Internet of Things (IoT) in factory automation.

Additionally, technological advancement, expanding infrastructure opportunities, and increased operational efficiency demands all influence factory automation. This approach is anticipated to improve nations and businesses by ushering in a new stage of economic prosperity.

For instance, in February 2020, Rockwell Automation, Inc. disclosed that it had struck an agreement to acquire ASEM, S.p.A., an Italian company pioneer in digital automation technologies. As well as a wide range of Industrial PCs (IPCs), secure Industrial IoT gateway solutions, and remote access capabilities, ASEM also offers HMI software and hardware.

It is anticipated to substantially impact various companies, shareholders, business strategies, and helpful government policies to encourage adoption across industries globally. Due to rising knowledge of cloud computing platforms' use and advancements in semiconductor and electronic device technology, the automation sector is anticipated to develop over time.

Important end-user industries became firmly reliant on automation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, minimizing operational and other long-term economic effects. Manufacturers were forced to alter automated procedures to prevent foreclosures while workforces could not operate owing to government-issued lockdowns. Global market actors started automating their processes on their own or through partnerships, at least to some level. In March 2020, Epson Robots collaborated with Air Automation Engineering (AEE) to offer technical support in the Midwest of the United States.

Additionally, it is projected that the increase would aid the rise of the market leaders in investment and continued development in the manufacturing sector. The production process in several sectors, such as automotive, aerospace, and heavy engineering, is becoming more digitalized. Integrating IIoT into manufacturing facilities is essential for linking systems and devices to a network. New automated developments are aided by artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, cloud computing, etc.

Automakers worldwide are aware of the game-changing potential of the next generation of robots and automation technology to raise standards of productivity, quality, safety, and cost in the sector. The need for robot automation systems is also anticipated to increase due to greater robotic automation expenditure year over year.

Automated equipment requires a higher initial investment in automation technology (automated systems can cost millions of dollars to design, manufacture, and install). Additionally, they have less product flexibility than a manual system, require more maintenance than a manually operated machine, and are expected to hurt market growth.

Sensors segment dominated the market in 2021.

Due to its use and necessity in the operations and processes of automation and control systems, the sensors component type sector had the highest revenue in 2021, totaling over USD 35 billion. Sensors are crucial in automation processes because they are compact and provide real-time, reliable data and readings. With an emphasis on precision, consistency, and more, these sensors help industrial automation robots or make the production process and operation intelligent and, thus, automatic.

Moreover, the industrial robots component type segment is anticipated to dominate and grow rapidly. Manufacturing organizations use the extensive use of industrial robots and cutting-edge equipment to optimize processes that call for quickness, sturdiness, and accuracy is the cause of this increase. Robotic industrial automation lowers labor costs, energy consumption, and waste of raw materials. Industrial robots also provide an efficient and continuous workflow throughout the manufacturing process.

The demand in Europe is expected to witness significant growth.

From 2022 to 2030, Europe is anticipated to grow at a high CAGR. Increased competition and increased end-user demand force manufacturing facilities in the region to adopt the latest technological advancements and digital transformation skills to streamline their business operations. This has resulted in a considerable expansion. For instance, the automotive sector can quickly adapt to market demands, reduce manufacturing downtime, increase supply chain efficiency, and increase productivity. Significant corporations are putting industrial automation goods on the market and are also being used in many regional sectors, including the automobile, healthcare, manufacturing, and others.
