Dublin, April 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Smart Factory Market by Technology (DCS, PLC, MES, ERP, SCADA, PAM, HMI, PLM), Component (Sensors, Industrial Robots, Machine Vision Systems, Industrial 3D Printing), Industry, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The smart factory market is expected to be valued at USD 153.7 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 244.8 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 9.76% between 2019 and 2024.

The market growth can be attributed to increasing adoption of industrial robots, evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT), growing demand for smart automation solutions, and increasing emphasis on regulatory compliances. However, huge capital investment and security threat of cyber physical systems act as restraints for the market.

Smart factory is an emerging trend that encompasses set of technologies, solutions, and products. It connects people, processes, and machines in industrial environment to enable advance manufacturing. Smart factory offers multiple benefits that help users to optimize process, reduce errors, improve quality, and eliminate waste.

The concept for smart factory is there in the market since many decades. But the market has change its direction in the past few years as paradigm for factory automation has shifted from traditional product based automation to smart automation. The latter part is driven by data; thus, data is the powerhouse in the present digital era. Emerging technologies and connected assets affect supply chains both upstream and downstream, thus required a rethink for everything from sourcing to logistics.

There is increasing emphasis on industrial automation and optimum utilization of resources that are drivers for the industry control and factory automation market. Components and solutions forms the overall industry automation and factory control market. Components include industrial robots, sensors, field instruments, machine vision, control valves, HMI, industrial PC, and industrial 3D printing. Solutions offered are distributed control systems (DCS), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), programmable logic controller (PLC), manufacturing execution system (MES), product lifecycle management (PLM), functional safety, and plant asset management (PAM).

The industry control and factory automation market include suppliers such as Emerson Electric Company (US), Mitsubishi Corporation (Japan), Siemens AG (Germany), ABB LTD. (Switzerland), Schneider Electric SE (France), Rockwell Automation, Inc. (US), OMRON Corporation (Japan), Honeywell International Inc. (US), FANUC Corporation (Japan), and STRATASYS LTD.
