New Construction from Developing Markets in Asia Propels Growth in Automation Market

New ARC Advisory Group research on the automation and software expenditures in the process industries market reveals that after back-to-back years of decline, the global process automation market entered recovery mode during 2017, although with lackluster growth.  The short-term outlook remains the same as the global market continues to face long-term economic uncertainty.

“Much of the growth seen in the global automation market during 2017 can be attributed to new construction from developing markets in Asia.  All Asian markets except Japan saw year-over-year growth.  The rebound in the Chinese automation market accounted for much of this growth, but other developing markets in Asia also experienced year-over-year growth,” according to Allen Avery, Senior Analyst at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Automation & Software Expenditures in the Process Industries Global Market Research report.

“Despite the recent return to growth in major global economies and rising prices for key commodities, major end users remain uncertain about how long these rallies will last as they face a potential trade war, and producers ramping up production once again in response to the rising commodity prices,” added Avery.
