Smart Manufacturing Market Analysis
The Smart Manufacturing Market size is estimated at USD 141.39 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 279.23 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 14.58% during the forecast period (2024-2029).
The increasing initiatives to adopt smart manufacturing will drive market growth. Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC), a combination of US-based industrial organizations, technology suppliers, laboratories, and universities, is working on a next-generation Smart Manufacturing Platform and Smart Factory connectivity. Similarly, another industry-led initiative, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), was formed to bring together the advanced technologies and organizations needed to accelerate the growth of industrial automation.
Using services and software, such as SCADA, ERP, HMI, PLC, DCS, PLM, and MES, has enabled industries to collect real-time data and make decisions. The software has been beneficial to the industry as it reduces product errors, reduces downtime, conducts planned maintenance, moves from the reactive phase to the predictive and prescribing phases, and enables decision-making.
The dependence on process control and systems combined with the convergence of IT and operating technologies systems has increasingly exposed manufacturing firms to cyber attacks. Manufacturers' control systems have long been deemed impenetrable due to their proprietary and customized networks. IoT has opened the scope for the theft of proprietary information. With more automation and digitization of these devices, which were originally built without the proper security measures, the data security concern will also grow, hindering the market growth.
Furthermore, investments in Industry 4.0 are rising globally. Organizations have started adopting Industry 4.0 smart solutions owing to their positive impact on their businesses, including increased productivity. For instance, as per a report by Capgemini and the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), it is expected that more than two-thirds of the Indian manufacturing sector intention embrace Industry 4.0. by 2025
Moreover, the companies operating in the market focus on innovations and launch new products to stay ahead of the competition. For instance, in February 2023, which announced the launch of Programmable Logic Controller OTAC to combat key unresolved challenges related to industrial IoT, smart factories, and operational technology (OT). This provides a highly optimized and highly secure authentication solution specifically for PLC devices by utilizing their dynamic 'one-time authentication code' (OTAC) technology to resolve typical ICS/OT security challenges.
The outbreak of COVID-19 triggered the manufacturing sector to re-evaluate its traditional production processes, primarily driving digital transformation and smart manufacturing practices across the production lines. The manufacturers also forced to implement and devise multiple agile and new approaches to monitor product and quality control.
