The industrial automation market was valued at US$ 140.39 billion in 2021 to reach US$ 233.94 billion by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2021 to 2028.

The increasing penetration of connected enterprises and the rising need for mass manufacturing of products are promoting the industrial automation market due to increasing demand for real-time data analysis across geographies and rising uptake of advanced technologies across end-use industries to improve performance.For instance, in 2019, the Chinese government invested US$ 577 million in developing industrial robots under the Made in China 2025 plan.

In September 2020, the UK government announced plans to invest around US$ 180 million into the second round of its "Manufacturing Made Smarter" scheme to promote interconnectivity and innovation in the country’s manufacturing industry.Furthermore, the rising product development and strategic initiatives from key industrial automation market players for industrial automation applications lead to industrial automation market growth.

For instance, in 2020, Honeywell International Inc. and Tech Mahindra Limited partnered with "Factories of the Future" to accelerate the digital transformation journey by empowering manufacturers. Similarly, Siemens collaborated with SAP SE to offer industry 4.0-enabled business processes to enterprises. Thus, the factors mentioned above are driving the industrial automation market.

Further, the increasing number of online shoppers across the globe is constantly influencing the adoption of automation across the e-commerce industry.Significant automation applications across the sector include workflow process automation and automated storage and inventory retrieval.

The demand for automation in e-commerce is highly varying, owing to which the forward pick areas must be continuously adjusted to aid the fluctuation in demand.Along with managing stock keeping unit (SKU)demand fluctuations, an Automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) also advances the fulfilment process, thus, allowing e-commerce and omnichannel retailers to adhere better to service level agreements by fulfilling order delivery commitments.

Several e-commerce giants have also increased their investment in automating their warehouse facilities over the years.For instance, in July 2021, Amazon India announced the launch of its 11 automated fulfilment centers.

The centers will be integrated with automated technologies to automate pick pack and shipping processes and ensure safe and timely order processing. These factors are expected to boost the growth of the industrial automation market globally over the forecast period.

In the COVID-19 pandemic, industrial automated solutions manufacturing facilities across the globe were adversely impacted, leading to low production volumes.Further, the demand for such solutions declined rapidly, owing to the temporary closure of end-use manufacturing and other retail outlets.

For instance, the automotive sector recorded a 20% decline in manufacturing in 2020, owing to the spread of COVID-19.Thus, in the first two quarters of 2020, the global industrial automation market size was adversely impacted.

However, the world experienced the rapid adoption of robots in 2020.In 2020, APAC recorded the deployment of 71% of all newly manufactured robots.

Installations for the region’s largest adopter (China) grew strongly by 20%, with 168,400 units shipped. Adoption from the automotive industry was weaker in APAC in 2020. The electronics & semiconductor industry invested significantly in industrial automation solutions, such as robots, in 2020, and it continued to invest in 2021. Meanwhile, owing to containment measures enacted by governments, the supply side of industrial automation manufacturers was marginally affected till Q3 of 2020. Moreover, with the normalization of economic and manufacturing activities from Q3 of 2020, the adoption of automated solutions experienced a rise to reduce the number of human interactions across facilities, thereby enabling the industrial automation market to revive from both the supply and demand sides in 2021.
