Vision-guided robots are experiencing a rise in demand across the industrial automation market due to their efficiency in completing repetitive tasks, such as bottle handling, bin picking, and tray loading. Numerous benefits, including enhanced traceability, improved efficiency, and high flexibility, have been driving the need for automation in the food & beverage industry over the years.

These factors have encouraged food & beverage producers to invest heavily in automated technology integration across their production facilities. For instance, a US-based snack brand, Utz Brands Inc., announced its plans to integrate automated capabilities across its production plants to reduce its overall operational cost in 2021.

Similarly, Hormel Foods is also planning to incorporate automation across its production facilities in 2022. Other food & beverage brands rapidly adopting automated technology include Tyson Foods and ITC. Thus, the rise in investment in automation across the food & beverage industry is fueling the growth of the industrial automation market.

The MEA industrial automation market is negatively impacted by the disruption in the supply chain of robotics and related components. The demand for industrial automation solutions such as sensors, robots, and machine vision systems has weakened marginally since the eruption of COVID-19 in the MEA countries.

This led to a loss of revenue among the automation solutions manufacturers, distributors, system integrators and service providers offering their products in the region in 2020. However, as the region showcased a positive trend for adopting automation systems, owing to government containment measures, which propelled the adoption of industrial automation solutions such as robots, sensors, and machine vision systems from 2021.

The containment measures implemented by the regional government bodies affected all economic and manufacturing activities in the region. Various manufacturing operations were delayed and halted in 2020. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the adoption of advanced solutions such as robots in the region.

For instance, according to the International Federation of Robotics, Brazil witnessed a 17% slowdown in the adoption rate of robots in 2020, thereby negatively impacting the industrial automation market. However, due to containment measures imposed by governments, along with the need to meet the stipulated delivery, manufacturers have started to showcase a positive outlook toward the adoption of automated technology from Q4 of 2020, which positively influenced the growth of industrial automation market in SAM.

The global industrial automation market is segmented based on component, system, and end user. The segmentation in this research study has been finalized post in-depth secondary research and extensive primary research. In addition, the industrial automation market is also segmented in terms of technology offered by the leading participants in the industry to understand widely used market-specific terminologies.

Thus, we have incorporated the research segments and have finalized the market segmentation. The industrial automation market is broadly segmented into five major regions - North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa, and South and Central America. APAC held the largest market share in 2020, followed by Europe and North America.

APAC is further anticipated to register the highest CAGR in the industrial automation market during the forecast period. The increasing uptake by various industries and the growing penetration of advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of thing (IoT), are fueling the industrial automation market size.

Key findings of study

North America has been highly competitive in the industrial automation market due to the advancements in technology, with the US being a developed country accepting advanced technologies for industrial operations. With 5G wireless technology penetration, automation solutions across industries continuously increase. Moreover, due to the rising demand for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), industrial automation's and industrial IoT markets are expanding.

In addition, the region is witnessing an increase in robotic technology adoption. For instance, in 2020, Epson Robots collaborated with the US-based automation solutions provider, Air Automation Engineering (AAE), to increase its technical support in the Midwest US. Furthermore, the increasing government initiatives, such as Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) and Automate Canada, are also contributing toward the growth of industrial automation market size.
