The market is segmented by three automation types, namely process automation, factory automation, and electric automation. The market is driven by the increased investments in the secondary manufacturing sector owing to the favourable government policies and changing customer behavior. The country aims to improve its infrastructure capabilities to attract more global investors and to boost its manufacturing capabilities. Several Indian industries are upgrading their existing automation technologies to reduce the production time and promote safety and efficiency in the manufacturing or processing units.
The market is further segmented by technologies used in industrial automation such as distributed control systems (DCS), programmable logic control (PLC), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), manufacturing execution system (MES), and human machine interface (HMI). The demand for DCS systems is increasing in India primarily to overcome the expensive third-party integration solutions and flexible field instruments. The demand for SCADA systems is driven by increasing investments to address power transmission problems across industries. The demand for PLCs is mostly driven by process manufacturing companies.
The end-user segment covers the automotive industry, power, oil & gas, food processing, pharmaceutical, and chemical. Power, oil & gas, and automotive industries are the forefront adopters of different automation technologies owing to the need for promoting efficiency and plant safety at the same time. The other industries, such as chemicals, food processing, and pharmaceuticals, are adopting these technologies at a slower rate. The pharmaceutical industry is predicted to show a higher adoption rate for industrial automation capabilities, growing at a CAGR of 15.0% during the forecast period.
“The growth rate of the Indian Industrial Automation Market is greater than the global average and the country is improving its industrial infrastructure capabilities to attract investments in the manufacturing sector. The country is taking measures to become a global hub for R&D activities in a gamut of industries.” Srujan, Research Analyst at Infoholic Research.
