Regional Trends Stimulate Growth, with Sustainable Profits from Installed Base-related Services

The pressing need to replicate manufacturing plants and facilities across global locations and the requirements to minimize costs associated with the downtime of production operations has resulted in end users looking for cost-effective, off-the-self manufacturing execution systems (MES) that are equipped to tackle complex environments and increase overall production efficiency, productivity, and visibility. As new technologies such as cloud, industrial mobility, and Big Data analytics gain traction in the current setup, this research service provides a detailed analysis of key MES market dynamics that are fueling growth, vertical market bifurcation, in-depth competitive landscapes, and regional trends that affect adoption.

Key Findings
The global manufacturing execution systems (MES) market generated revenue of $ million in 2013; it is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of% from 2013 to 2020. Revenue from the hybrid industry is set to grow at a steep CAGR of % from 2013 to 2020. Mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and alliances would be key strategies to gain market share, acquire technological innovations, and penetrate new applications or industry verticals.

A paradigm shift of revenue generation from services to software licensing and support is expected to take place over the next years, further disrupting existing business models. The advent of industrial mobility, cloud computing, and Big Data processing is expected to result in significant advancements in MES solutions, further transforming the entire industrial manufacturing value chain.

CEO’s Perspective
1 The revenue generation ratio between software licensing and services is set to change from to by the end of the forecast period.
2 The MES market in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical and life sciences verticals will experience the highest growth.
3 Schneider Electric becomes the largest MES solution provider after its acquisition of Invensys.
4 Cloud computing, industrial mobility, Big Data analytics, and multisite rollout capabilities will define next-generation MES software solutions.
5 Extended shop floor visibility and streamlined multiplant operation requirements ignite growth of MES solutions.

Market Definitions
Manufacturing Execution System (MES): ISA-95 defines MES as “a production scheduling and tracking system used to analyze and report resource availability and status, schedule and update orders, collect detailed execution data such as material usage, labor usage, process parameters, order and equipment status, and other critical information. It accesses bills of material, routing and other data from the base enterprise resource planning system and is typically the system used for the real-time shop floor reporting and monitoring that feeds activity data back to the base system.”

The Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) model explains the convergence of different levels of industry in the manufacturing enterprise. The model describes the interconnection between management, business operations, enterprise-level production management, and the actual production and manufacturing on the floor. The idea is to demonstrate the importance of data exchange across these levels in real time. Management-level strategies are filtered down to the base level of manufacturing, and results are reported in real time across all levels, making the whole process transparent.
