Nano Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Market Overview:
Global Nano Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Market was valued at $2,585 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $4,250 million in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2017 to 2023. A nano programmable logic controller (PLC) is an industrial grade computer capable of being programmed to perform control functions. These controllers can eliminate hardwiring associated with conventional relay control circuits, enhancing the productivity. It is easier to create and change a program in a nano PLC than to rewire the complete circuit. Nano PLC can communicate with other controllers or computer equipment to perform functions such as supervisory control, data gathering, monitoring devices, and other process parameters of programs. Furthermore, to meet the demands of harsh industrial environments, these controllers are designed to be extremely robust, often capable of withstanding extreme temperatures, humidity, vibration, and electrical noise.
Requirement for compact automation solutions, enhanced efficiency, and increased need for high-voltage operating devices have increased the rate of adoption of nano PLCs in energy & power, automotive, and other sectors. Hence, the global nano PLC market is expected to witness moderate growth in the near future, owing to compact size and enhanced durability. However, high implementation cost and current leakage hamper the market growth. Integration of nano PLCs with human machine interface (HMI) is expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the market.
The global nano programmable logic controllers (PLC) market is segmented based on component, service, type, industry vertical, and geography. Based on component, it is classified into processor, power supply, and input/output (I/O). In 2016, fixed nano PLC was the highest revenue contributor, as it is widely adopted in energy & power industry, and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period, owing to its enhanced efficiency and durability.
The energy & power segment offers lucrative scope to industry players, and is expected to exhibit higher growth as compared to the other segments during the forecast period. Asia Pacific accounted for the highest revenue share in the global market in 2016, owing to the increase in demand for semiconductor & automated devices.
