Market for PAM is expected to grow at highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026 in the Middle East & Africa
The PAM segment is projected to register the highest growth rate from 2021 to 2026. Plant asset management (PAM) is a software that utilizes the intelligence embedded in industrial assets to accurately measure and provide information about the condition of the assets in a plant. PAM is increasingly being used by manufacturers as it improves decision-making and turn-around time by tracking manufacturing defects and thereby avoiding system failures through real-time data collection and quality management techniques. Additionally, PAM enables manufacturers to reduce downtime and resource wastages by identifying possible failures prior to production and also suggests corrective measures.
Furthermore, PAM solutions are extensively being implemented in the food and beverages and automotive industries, owing to constant technical innovations and the requirement of a complete data record of equipment installed. Also, the increasing demand for PAM technology can be attributed to the advantages of reduction of costs of manufacturing and enhancing operations of high-performance production assets offered by them. Therefore, it is projected that the PAM segment would witness the highest CAGR of 9.5% during the forecast period.
