Smart manufacturing may be a method of producing which aims at optimizing the concept, product manufacturing and transaction process. Smart manufacturing involves the use of automation machinery and the goal to be achieved through this process is the use of information technology to use it for the advantage of reaching a global market. This manufacturing decreases the workload and makes for more flexibility within the entire process.

The global smart manufacturing market size was valued at USD 215.9 billion in 2019 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 12.8% from 2019 to 2028. With the advent of industry 5.0 revolution, there has been a significant transformation in the manufacturing sector in the form of digitization and automation. The growing demand for knowledge-based manufacturing and connected supply chains, which are equipped with advanced control, sensing, modeling, and simulation capabilities, are driving the growth of smart manufacturing. Moreover, industrial internet of things (IIoT), cloud technology, and industrial analytics will play an important role in fostering market growth over the forecast period.

Top Driver:

Aerospace and Defense Expected to Register Significant Growth

The prime concern of the automotive industry is the length of a project. Hence, quick return-on-investment projects combined with low-cost automation and price innovation helps manufacturers in improving competitiveness through productivity improvement. Value streams are expected to become more agile through adaptive manufacturing and extensive utilization of 3D-printing. These value streams are expected to become more software-based.

Also, the automotive manufacturing is getting impetus from smart technologies, Industry 4.0, and IoT. For instance, discrete manufacturing is the manufacturing or production of distinct parts that can be individually touched and counted. The parts are mainly related to assembly lines. Discrete manufacturing includes products, such as cars, automotive parts, etc. that are getting increasingly connected. Smart manufacturing is additionally expected to assist in balancing the availability and demand, enhancing product design, optimizing manufacturing efficiency, and significantly reducing waste.

Software are expected to be the driving factors for the segment’s growth in Global Smart Manufacturing Market

Based on component, the smart manufacturing infrastructure is segmented into hardware, software, and services. The hardware segment includes robots, 3D printers, IIoT enabling equipment and devices, and augmented and virtual reality devices. While these devices are utilized at the edge of networks, their demand has been increasing in the recent years. Different types of conventional and smart sensors are an important aspect of the hardware segment, which has been exhibiting not only rapid demand growth but also increased research and development activities. For instance, HMS Networks, a supplier of industrial communication and IIoT solutions has become one of the leading players in industrial IoT connectivity after acquisition of eWon, a manufacturer of PLCs in 2016.

The software segment is quite mature as numerous solutions have already been in use for many years. The solutions include manufacturing execution systems, product lifecycle management, and enterprise resource planning. However, the modernization of these systems and growth of analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled systems are expected to be the driving factors for the segment’s growth. The need for technology implementation expertise is anticipated to assist the expansion of the services segment over the forecast period.

Based on technology, the smart manufacturing market is segregated into various technologies including manufacturing execution system (MES), programmable logic controller (PLC), enterprise resource planning (ERP), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), discrete control system (DCS), human machine interface (HMI), machine vision, 3D printing, product lifecycle management (PLM), and plant asset management. While some of these technologies have been in use for quite some time, segments such as 3D printing have been ahead traction in the recent years. With the use of AI and machine learning as a design aid, additive manufacturing technology, or 3D printing is shifting toward automation. In addition, 3D printing segment is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period owing to its large-scale adoption in design process and agile product iterations.

Asia Pacific region holds a dominant position in the market owing to the presence of a large number of Companies

The regions have started investing in smart manufacturing; they vary considerably in terms of market maturity. With numerous ongoing projects, developed countries such as U.S., Germany, and Japan are witnessing high penetration of smart manufacturing or Industrie 4.0, whereas emerging countries such as China are catching up with the technological advancements. For instance, in 2018, Siemens and Alibaba cloud forged a partnership to foster industrial IoT in China. The partnership will provide novel solutions for manufacturers in China to realize innovation and aide Industry 4.0 initiatives.

However, Asia Pacific region holds a dominant position in the market owing to the presence of a large number of smart manufacturing companies stimulated by the need to compete at international levels. An important distinction among regional markets is that the developing countries are investing in smart technologies to keep abreast with international manufacturing standards and trends. Whereas, developed economies are supporting digital transformation to bring back the offshore manufacturing to their own countries. Moreover, development of smart manufacturing is probably going to spice up trends like onshoring and have impact on geopolitical and technological landscape during the forecast period.

Players to Focus on Expanding Global Smart Manufacturing Market

The smart manufacturing market is very competitive and consists of several major players. In terms of market share, few of the main players currently dominate the market. These major players with the prominent shares within the market are that specialize in expanding their customer base across foreign countries. These companies are leveraging on strategic collaborative initiatives to extend their market share and profitability.
