Key Drivers and Top Challenges

Industrial control systems are sought-after tools in organizations of different industries, since they offer energy efficiency properties when used in manufacturing processes. The industrial controllers market anticipates incredible growth prospects, given the widespread demand across multiple industries like utility, automotive, semiconductors and electronics, because of their controlling ability in automated processes. Moreover, the intense demand for IoT-based smart solutions along with automation in industries including manufacturing, electronics & semiconductor and utilities, also leads to escalated demand for industrial controls worldwide.

The soaring demand for bulk production across manufacturing industries boosts the need for industrial controls, considering the evolving needs of the ever-expanding population. Industrial controllers are used for mass production of products in a short period without compromising the accuracy, thereby bringing down the production cost. End-users take into account these qualities and make huge demand, which increases the global industrial controllers market share across the globe.

Furthermore, automation is gaining fast traction in multiple industrial applications, since they lower the cost and induce high-quality results. Industrial controls also provide system integrators to develop automation, providing consistent results with better productivity and enhanced product quality. This way, the quality control challenge that usually crops up due to human error is restrained, in conjunction with reliability, faster and efficient work rate of systems.
