Top Impacting Factors

Rise in Adoption of Industrial Robots

Robots have evolved over the past few decades from being prohibitively expensive devices with limited functionality to being affordable devices capable of carrying out a variety of duties. Particularly industrial robots are extensively used by people everywhere. Industrial robots are being used more frequently in manufacturing centers, which is driving rapid advancements, development, and evolution, according to the most recent trends in the robotics industry. Moreover, rapid technological advancements in robotics have led to an increase in acceptance of robotics engineering and technology in the manufacturing sector's production processes. Industrial robots are programmable, multipurpose manipulators that operate autonomously.

Furthermore, few common industrial robot applications include welding, heavy lifting, ironing, assembling, picking and positioning, palletizing, product inspection, and testing. All of these tasks require a lot of human endurance, speed, and accuracy. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) estimates that in 2021, a total of 486,800 units were transported globally. Industrial robots carry out repetitive tasks and substitute for human labor where necessary. They can also work in dangerous and risky environments where humans cannot. Robotics technology will thus be a major development in the industry 4.0 market.

Rise in Deployment of Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is one of today's most creative tools. In recent years, 3D printing has been widely used to meet the increase in ventilator valve demand in hospitals all over the globe. Moreover, the manufacturing industry's current trends are about to alter as a result of 3D printing technology. Governments around the world are launching programs and funding organizations that conduct research and create technology to further explore the possibilities offered by 3D printing technology and to promote its growth. National programs are being implemented in the U.S., UK, and Canada to support university-level 3D printing study, which is advancing technology and spawning start-ups. Future industrialists and governments from all over the world will be drawn to 3D printing as new applications for the technology arise which is projected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the industry 4.0 market.

Technology Initiative

Industry 4.0 is the next phase in the digitization of the manufacturing sector, driven by disruptive trends including the rise of data and connectivity, analytics, human-machine interaction, and improvements in robotics. It also includes productivity in manufacturing through applying technology and automation to both production and management processes. One Industry 4.0 scenario is the digital enablement of hundreds of manufacturing plants across the multi-tier manufacturing topology. This enables data collection and insights to be gathered and facilitates agile, controlled configuration and software rollouts.

For instance, in March 2021, IBM, Samsung Electronics and M1 opened the IBM Industry 4.0 Studio, which combine advanced 5G connectivity with artificial intelligence (AI), hybrid cloud and edge computing capabilities to develop and test innovative Industry 4.0 solutions for enterprises in Singapore and across the region.
