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 market growth is expected to grow moderately during the forecast period due to the uncertainties ushered upon by the novel coronavirus across the country.  

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

The PLC and PLC-based PAC for India market experienced strong growth in 2019 compared with 2018.  Overall, ARC is optimistic about the development in the PLC and PLC-based PAC India market.

The driving force for the PLC and PLC-based PAC market in automation is, as it is for several devices, the digitalization of the automation business.  Call it Industrial Internet of Things (Industrial IoT) or Industry 4.0, most of the approaches arise from the consumer goods markets, e.g., multi-touch, cloud, or edge computing.

Industrial IoT is changing how industrial processes are controlled and monitored, but PLCs are growing with and adapting to the new challenges rather than being replaced by alternate technologies.  PLCs have gained a lot of speed and new functionality in the past decade, allowing some users to switch to a PLC that is one size smaller.  This tactic is especially popular with cost-conscious machine builders and is changing the market dynamics.  

The market, including hardware, software, and services, is mature and established, but there is a lot of innovation at the “industrial edge” where automation technology meets Internet of Things.  Pre-coronavirus growth was stable and predictable as automation technology found its way into various new applications.

PLC and PLC-based PAC for India Market Strategic Issues

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the PLC and PLC-based PAC for India market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Vendors: Adoption of Latest Technologies

The need for flexible machinery and data transparency is driving demand for smart sensing devices, which in turn is increasing demand for more input and output channels. However, as software becomes a larger part of automation solutions, PLC selection criteria are emphasizing software and services.

Strategic Issue for Users: Service Offering

Lifecycle costs of automation equipment can account for 4 to 5 times the initial purchasing price.  A supplier’s service offering can bring significant benefits over the lifecycle.  When choosing a PLC or PLC-based PAC system, service can be a key differentiator in lifecycle costs.

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused disruptions to supply chains and business operations.  While the pandemic did not impact the 2019 demand for PLC and PLC-based PACs, the market projections do take into account industry trends with ARC’s best estimates for how COVID-19 will impact the PLC and PLC-based PAC India market in different industries.
