Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and PLC-based Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs) for India

The PLC and PLC-based PAC for India market research report delivers current market analysis plus a five-year market and technology forecast.  The report provides detailed quantitative market data and addresses key strategic issues.

Industrial IoT-capable PLC System Is Changing the Role of PLC in Automation 

The Indian PLC market declined by double digits in 2020 due to the detrimental impact of the pandemic. The market is expected to bounce back in 2021 with a double-digit YoY growth and will continue to grow by single digits YoY during the rest of the forecast period. 

The digitalization of the automation business is the driving force for the PLC market in automation (as it is for several devices). Whether you call it Industrial IoT or Industry 4.0, many of the approaches come from consumer goods markets,such as multi-touch, cloud, or Edge computing.  

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is transforming how industrial processes are controlled and monitored, but PLCs are evolving alongside and adapting to new challenges instead of just being replaced by alternative technologies. PLCs have gained a lot of speed and new functionalities over the last decade, allowing some users to transition to one-size-smaller PLCs. This strategy is particularly popular among cost-conscious machine builders, and it is altering the market dynamics. 

The market is mature and established, but there is a lot of innovation at the "Industrial Edge," where automation technology meets the Internet of Things. As automation technology is finding its way into a variety of industrial applications, ARC expects the market to have stable growth during the forecast period. 

The Indian PLC market is dominated by Siemens, ABB, Rockwell Automation, and Schneider Electric. Overall, ARC analysis suggests that the broad automation portfolios clearly enable suppliers to garner defensible leadership positions.
