Factory automation and digitalization of manufacturing are the driving forces behind market growth and will continue to remain so throughout the forecast period, to speed up the recovery of global manufacturing and economic scenario.  Suppliers remain optimistic about safeguarding solutions outlook for 2021 because of the key role safety plays in industrial automation.

The market  is dominated by SICK, OMRON, Siemens, Pilz, and Rockwell Automation.  Overall, ARC’s analysis suggests that a broad range of safety products and solutions clearly enable suppliers to garner defensible leadership positions.

Machine Safeguarding Strategic Issues

Machine Safety, Safeguarding Market TrendsIn addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the machine safeguarding solutions market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Users: Seek Out Services from Suppliers to Supplement Internal Competencies

Safety regulations are subject to revisions and modifications.  Many machine builders don’t have the expertise to keep up with the latest safety regulations.  Adopting external services mitigates this problem and is economical.  The cost of safety certification is too high to take the risk of using internal engineers who are not fully aware of the latest regulatory requirements. 

Strategic Issue for Suppliers: Component Shortages Put a Drag on the Machine Safeguarding Solutions Market 

Supply chain disruptions on account of the COVID-19 pandemic have created electronics component shortages, which can dampen the market growth.  Extended delivery times of raw materials and electrical components and increase in material prices pose a huge challenge for the suppliers.

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused disruptions to global supply chains and business operations. While the pandemic impacted the 2020 demand for machine safeguarding solutions, the market projections do take into account industry trends with ARC’s best estimates for how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact the market in different industry types.
