NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The smart manufacturing market size is estimated to grow by USD 20.26 billion from 2022 to 2027, according to Technavio. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of  13.95%. The growth momentum will progress during the forecast period. The emergence of IIoT is a significant trend shaping market growth. The factors that increased the scope of scaling operations by leveraging these tools are the technological advances like smart devices, wireless, and cloud technology, and the development of the IIoT. For instance, IIoT enables to integration of several smart machines for allowing companies to accomplish their desired goals in the manufacturing industry. Thus, vendors are expanding their market by delivering exceptionally intuitive human-machine interfaces so that even those without technical skills can operate them. As IIoT becomes increasingly adopted, different machines such as expert systems, autonomous robots, and other smart machines are also anticipated to experience growing demand. Therefore such factors are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period. Technavio’s analysts have elaborately explained the regional trends and drivers that shape the market during the forecast period.  For more insights on the historic period (2017 to 2021) and forecast market size (2023 to 2027) – Request a sample report

Smart Manufacturing Market – Segmentation and Geographical Assessment

Segment Overview

Technavio has segmented the market based on industry application (process and discrete), technology (Human-machine interface, Manufacturing execution system, Plant asset management, and Warehouse management system) and geography (APAC, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle East and Africa). 

  • The market share growth by the process segment will be significant during the forecast period. In 2022, this segment was the largest and is further subdivided into pharmaceuticals, mining and metals, energy and power, chemicals, pulp and paper, and oil and gas. Industries where the primary production activities occur continuously or on an identical batch of materials are called process industries. The critical factor driving this segment is the advanced equipment and hardware that these industries possess. Benefits given by process manufacturing such as cost savings, increased scalability, improved efficiency, and higher-quality products. In the manufacturing industry, it can cut down on processing costs, save time and improve the ability to continually carry out operations in a sustainable manner. Therefore these factors are expected to drive the growth of the process industry segment of the smart manufacturing market during the forecast period.
  • APAC is estimated to account for 38% of the global market during the forecast period. The growing adoption of IoT, cloud computing, and automation in the manufacturing sector is accountable for the APAC region being the largest regional smart manufacturing market. Specifically, the oil and gas industry, which requires smart solutions for various new chemical and petrochemical projects in the region in the future, is the major factor driving the demand. For instance, the Sunshine Project by Formosa Petrochemical Corp in 2021 involved the construction of an ethane cracker for cracking ethane into approximately 1.2 million tons per annum of ethylene, 600,000 tons per annum of propylene, and 400,000 tons per annum of polyethene. Thus, the rising influence of automation in the industry is likely to have a favorable influence on the demand for the smart manufacturing market, resulting in market growth during the forecast period.

Smart Manufacturing Market – Market Dynamics

Key factor driving market growth

The need for simplification of complex manufacturing activities is the major factor notably driving market growth. The interrelated production equipment, inventory, and support systems in different plants have resulted in greater complexity of the industrial process, particularly in industries like oil and gas, food and beverage, and water treatment. Specific industrial solutions include SCADA, distributed control systems (DCS), and programmable logic controllers (PLC), which helps to track complex processes, operations, and systems in industrial plants and streamline operations.  Further, operational efficiency and critical asset management can be optimized. They help reduce revenue loss due to the high dependence of the entire operational cycle on these critical assets. Correspondingly, this can even be done remotely, giving the added advantages of decreased exposure to risk and hostile working conditions. Therefore, the multiple benefits of automation are likely to contribute to the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Major challenges hindering the market growth

Data privacy and security concerns are the major challenges hindering market growth. Despite the several advantages of automation and the adoption of smart manufacturing, it leaves the business system weak to cyberattacks and data breaches. This can have a severe effect on asset-heavy industries like oil and gas, power, water, and wastewater. Data breach issues in the oil and gas industry can lead to the possibility for external parties to use infrastructure data about pipelines, drilling rigs, and refinery processes for unethical purposes.  However, with greater integration of multiple systems within a utility, the breach of even one system can compromise all systems, adversely affecting the integrity and privacy of the entire industrial network. Therefore, the existence of a loophole in any part of the network puts the entire interlinked system at risk which can restrain market growth during the forecast period.
