Automation and Software Expenditures for Discrete Industries

Publish Date

This Automation and Software Expenditures for Discrete Industries Market Research Study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast.

Globalization Dynamics Will Drive Automation and Software Expenditures Growth

This report quantifies, analyzes, and forecasts global automation systems, software, and services expenditures for the discrete manufacturing industries.  A base year market size, forecast for each segment, and top leading suppliers for the overall market are presented.

The market data included in this study covers industrial automation products and software, including PLCs and PLC-based Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs), AC Drives, General Motion Control (GMC), Computer Numeric Control (CNC), and Machine Safeguarding; plus automation, Enterprise Asset Management, Field Service Management, Human Machine Interface (HMI), and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) software.

PLC, GMC, and CNC are the major automation controller categories in the discrete industries.  However, their growth and market dynamics vary because their demand in all discrete industries is different.  The study addresses many issues including counter forces that can stifle the market growth and the factors that help lift the market.

Looking forward, the study addresses many interesting dynamics that will provide relatively modest growth in the automation expenditure market in spite of a number of regional economic and political issues, which put a drag on the market growth.
