Machine Automation Controller Market Outlook 2027

Machine automation controller is an electronic device that controls the operation of an automation system through the use of graphical user interface with minimum human intervention. This technology is capable to provide complex high-level instructions to operate various equipment such as factory processes, temperature control of boiler, switching on telephone networks, stabilization of chips and many more. The large-scale application of machine automation controllers is witnessed in food and beverages and pharmaceutical industries among others as they possess extensive analog control capabilities and are compact in size with high durability. 

Machine Automation Controller technology helps to meet product quality and safety standards by offering improved production efficiency, increased throughput, optimized yield, reduced waste thus reducing operating cost and improving asset utilization. Distributed Control System (DCS) encompasses supervisory control on multiple integrated subsystem aiding to improve process consistency, increased system flexibility and optimized maintainability and reliability. Machine Automation Controller enables high-speed processing and better system security with individual log-in, e-signature and automatic sign-out. Growing innovation in power distribution sector through virtualization of processes will help machine automation controller market share grow at a steady rate in coming years.

Top Impacting Factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Driver, and Impact analysis

Surge in adoption of automated critical processes associated with electricity generation, transmission, distribution and increasing use of robotics in manufacturing sector to reduce operational cost with a view to fuel productivity are some primary factors propelling machine automation controller market growth. However, huge capital investment for SMEs, lack of skilled workforce and exertion in finding system failure faults leading to increase the downtime are factors restraining electronic article surveillance market growth. Contrarily oil & gas and mining industry utilizes such automation controllers largely for exploration, filling, drilling due to lack of skilled workforce for dangerous operation in remote hostile environment. Robust growth in semiconductor industry, internet-based solution and installation of advanced setup such as smart meters, automated substation assist to pave new avenues to the machine automation controllers industry.

New Product Launches to flourish the market:

The key electronic article surveillance market leaders in digital transformation of automation launch powerful solution that augment operational requirement and opens new business opportunities.

In January 2020, Schneider Electric launched the new Modicon M262 controller in India for logic and motion application that offers scalable, reliable machine integration into Internet 4.0 environment, machine to device, machine to human, machine to machine, machine to plant and machine to directly cloud. It has embedded cybersecurity features and encryption protocols to provide direct cloud connectivity and digital services through two independent Ethernet ports. This controller answers to logic application needs embedding all requested features as Motion Bus, encoder, touch probes and complies with latest safety regulation up to SIL3 providing crypted embedded communication, network separation, Achilles certification, and other cybersecurity features.

Surge in use in Industrial and Automotive application

Companies take full advantage of intelligent solution designed to maximise efficiency and increase productivity to meet increasingly high standards through optimisation of processes.

In April 2020, Omron Corporation launched its Sysmac Studio 3D Simulation Software for automated and industrial companies. Sysmac Studio 3D is capable to integrate and verify the movement of robots and peripheral devices providing flexible, precise response to the diversification of products and fluctuation in demand at manufacturing sites. Emulation in Sysmac Studio are used to run simulations.

In November 2019, ABB and B&R, a unit of ABB’s Robotics and Discrete Automation Business launched fully-integrated machine-centric Robotics Solution incorporating user-friendly programming by combining robotics with machine control. This integration makes synchronization between sensor and robot motion easier helping to remove defects in production process without manual intervention.

COVID-19 scenario Analysis:

  • The global COVID-19 outbreak has brought about uncertainties in worldwide machine automation controller growth. Owing to unprecedented strict prevention and control measures manufacturing production activities of primarily electronic automotive devices has slowed down radically. The shutdown scenario of operational activities will aid external demand to falter thus hampering recovery of machine automation controller market share.
  • Insufficient supply of raw materials increase operating costs further eroding profit. In March 2020, the Associated press reported that factory output in China has declined by 13.5% in February after its mandatory 2-week quarantine. Large companies who have best tools to be flexible, agile, and can monitor the plants by deploying workforce from any location will survive long-term. Due to loss of revenue, machine automation controller industry is not in a state to invest additional cost for installing upgraded automation system. Thus production will run in the same non-updated system as large industrial firms have slashed capital expenditure for 2020 to counter the short-term collapse in consumer and material demand due to lack of capital investment.
  • In March 2020, according to the purchasing managers index China has seen a recession low of 52 from 35.7 that indicates pulse of manufacturing activity during lockdown. After the laying off of workers to control fixed cost and losses, the drive to automate has taken a periodic back-seat due to the virus outbreak.
