The global Industrial Automation And Control Systems Market size is expected to reach USD 288.93 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 8.9% from 2021 to 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The proliferation of digitized industrial solutions is paving the way for the growth of the industry globally. Manufacturing and healthcare facilities are heavily investing in the deployment of automation technologies to streamline and simplify their everyday operations. The discovery of new crude oil reserves and growing need for enhanced security and safety standards in oil refineries are driving the demand for Distributed Control System (DCS) in the oil and gas industry. Additionally, the manufacturing and water and wastewater industries are widely adopting SCADA systems owing to their benefits, such as scalability and reliability.
The prevalence of Industry 4.0 has given rise to substantial opportunities for market participants engaged in offering automation, robotics, intelligent control systems, and IIoT technologies to the manufacturing sector. Leading automation control system companies incorporate advanced technologies in their product offerings to help users simplify their daily activities. Additionally, companies are focused on innovating industry-specific customized solutions to reduce production costs, optimize efficiency with adequate resources, and standardize operations.
The spread of the COVID-19 virus had resulted in partial or complete closures of manufacturing facilities in several countries, halting the production for a prolonged duration. The crippling impact of the pandemic highlighted critical gaps in the manufacturing sector. Nevertheless, companies are rebuilding their sustainability plans and re-inventing their supply chain models by exploring automation possibilities to reduce the future impact of the crisis on the production lines. While in the pre-COVID era, automation was seen as a means to achieve cost reduction, innovation, and customer visibility, its purpose has now shifted to survival and damage limitation. According to Cairn, an Indian oil & gas plant, automation and digitization have helped the company to recover its daily production of 1.6 lakh barrels against 1.8 lakh barrels with less than one-third of its workforce, due to stringent quarantine measures.
