Industry 4.0 Technologies Market Analysis

The Industry 4.0 Market size is expected to grow from USD 94.42 billion in 2023 to USD 241.58 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 20.67% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

With the introduction of Industry 4.0 in the production sector, numerous industrial facilities are adopting digital technology to improve, automate, and modernize the whole operation, enhancing the plants' productivity parameters.

  • Moreover, Industry 4.0 persuaded OEMs to adopt IoT across their operations, owing to the gradual increase in the adoption of IoT and digital transformation across several industries. For instance, according to the International Data Corporation's (IDC) Worldwide Semiannual Internet of Things Expenditure Guide, expenditure on the Internet of Things (IoT) in Europe exceeded USD 202 billion in 2021. It will likely increase at a double-digit rate through 2025. Maryville University estimates that by 2025 over 180 trillion gigabytes of data will be created worldwide every year. IIoT-enabled industries will generate a large portion of this.
  • Furthermore, increasing collaborations among global companies to adopt innovative technologies and digital solutions are expected to contribute to market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in March 2021, NOKIA Firm partnered with WEG Industries, a Brazilian energy and automation company, to accelerate the evolution of the Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) technology and present an industrial 4.0 solution.
  • Incorporating and adopting industry technologies offer various advantages but also represent several hazards that might hinder future corporate progress. Security and privacy issues related to advanced technology deployment are projected to hamper industry expansion. According to a study released in 2021 by Cybercrime Journal, the worldwide expense of cybercrime was USD 6.0 trillion in 2021. It is expected to hit USD 10.5 trillion by 2025.
  • The worldwide COVID-19 outbreak accelerated Industry 4.0 adoption and boosted resilience to potential pandemics. This is because, in the event of a pandemic, technology such as automation and robots serve to reduce human dependency while also allowing the human workforce to protect itself against these risks. It also increases production, preventing plant shutdowns during a crisis.

Industry 4.0 Technologies Market Trends

IIoT Technology Type Segment is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

  • Positive market expansion is being fueled by the expanding use of IoT technology across end-user industries, including manufacturing, automotive, and healthcare. The Internet of Things (IoT) is driving the next industrial revolution of intelligent connectivity as the traditional manufacturing sector undergoes a digital transformation. This is altering how businesses handle the increasingly sophisticated systems and machinery they use to increase productivity and decrease downtime.
  • Industry 4.0 and IoT are at the center of new technological approaches for the development, production, and management of the entire logistics chain, otherwise known as smart factory automation. Massive shifts in manufacturing due to Industry 4.0 and the acceptance of IoT require enterprises to adopt agile, smarter, and innovative ways to advance production with technologies that complement and augment human labor with robotics and reduce industrial accidents caused by process failure.
  • With the high rate of adoption of connected devices and sensors and the enabling of M2M communication, there has been a surge in data points that are generated in the manufacturing industry. These data points can be of various kinds, ranging from a metric describing the time taken for the material to pass through one process cycle or a more advanced one, such as the calculation of the material stress capability in the automotive industry.
  • Furthermore, the increasing use of IoT devices in companies is predicted to accelerate digital transformation in a variety of industries. According to Cisco's Annual Internet Report, there will be about 30 billion network-connected gadgets and services by 2023. Machine-To-Machine (M2M) connection will account for 50% (14.7 billion M2M connections) of the globally connected devices and connections by 2023.
  • The upcoming 5G era is likely to reshape current wireless communication methods used for Industrial IoT-based applications. IoT cannot thrive without affordable and effective wireless connectivity, interoperability, and common standards. Thus, 5G has the potential to make a ground-breaking impact on the way in which future IoT ecosystems are designed, especially in the areas of scalability, latency, reliability, security, and the level of individual control of connectivity parameters.
Industry 4.0 Market: M2M Connection Growth, in billions, Global, 2018 - 2023

Asia Pacific is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

  • Asia Pacific is constantly creating pertinent plans and laws to support local industry upgrading and reorganization for Industry 4.0. As its middle-class population increases and incomes continue to climb, Asia Pacific is automating more quickly than any other nation in the world in an effort to update its processes and maintain its cost advantage in international trade.
  • Manufacturers in the Asia Pacific region are currently focusing on the potential for revenue growth and risk management. Global manufacturers are thus anticipated to play increasingly significant roles as Asia-Pacific shifts to higher-value manufacturing as manufacturers look for alternative production sites close to the region's developing consumer markets.
  • The industrial development in India is supported by its growing economy and its significant youth population. For employment generation, the Government of India is focusing on increasing the manufacturing facilities in the country, which is likely to fuel the adoption of Industry 4.0 in India because by implementing advanced systems and technology under Industry 4.0, the manufacturing sector of the country can increase its efficiency and productivity.
  • China is economically developed and has a significant industrial sector, increasing the demand for advanced technologies, such as IIOTs and digital twins, thereby supporting market growth. The country is also expanding its SMBs sector to fuel its economic growth, which is expected to enhance the requirement of Industry 4.0 in the country due to the application of advanced technologies in SMBs.
  • Japan has been significantly transforming into an automated industrial economy in Asia-Pacific through its Industrial version 4.0 strategies, and the country has emerged as a manufacturing hub for factory automation products and supplies to other regional markets in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • The Rest of Asia-Pacific comprises South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, Thailand, and Malaysia. The adoption of advanced Industry 4.0 technologies in South Korea and Singapore, supported by the countries’ huge manufacturing sector, is fueling the market in the Rest of the APAC region.
