DUBLIN, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4bkd9n/industrial) has announced the addition of the "Industrial Controls and Factory Automation Market by Technology, Field Devices & Application - Global Forecast & Analysis to 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.
Industrial control and factory automation systems are used for automatic monitoring and control of operations and processes with the help of robot-like devices, thereby reducing human intervention.
These automation systems are offering advantages such as reduced cost production, reduction in industrial waste, speed production, and easy production monitoring and management. The production managers can make the required changes immediately and therefore the response time is reduced.
The emphasis by market players on energy saving and efficiency improvement is driving the market, with other market driver factors like internet of things and services integrating manufacturing and engineering, country and government impetus to manufacturing activities and shifting manufacturing base. Organizations are now adopting technologically advanced and smart manufacturing activities to utilize the resource optimally.
The Industrial control and factory automation market is segmented on the basis of Technology, Field Devices, Applications and Geographies. The technology & services segment includes Industrial Control Systems like Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Programmable Logic Control (PLC) and Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Information Technology System.
The Field Devices Market is sub-segmented into industrial networks, industrial robotics and control devices. The industrial control and factory automation system have applications mainly for discrete industries (automotive and transportation, mining, minerals & metals, and packaging) and process industries (oil & gas, chemical, food & beverage and pharmaceuticals).
The overall industrial control and factory automation market is segmented on the basis of the four major geographical regions- North America (the U.S, Canada and others), Europe (U.K, Germany, Russia and others), the Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India and others) and Rest of the World (Latin America, The Middle East and others).
