This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Factory Automation and Industrial Controls Market is accounted for $151.85 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $339.86 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 10.6% during the forecast period. An increase in the adoption of robots in the global manufacturing industry and initiatives undertaken by governments of different countries are driving the market growth. However, fluctuations in end-use industries are restraining the market growth.

Automation is the use of information technology in combination with mechanical technology for manufacturing processes to make an efficient and smart manufacturing infrastructure. Factory automation & industrial controls systems can help in reducing the operational cost of manufacturing, and also help in standardizing the manufacturing process for improving quality. 

Based on product, the robots segment is going to have lucrative growth during the forecast period. Manufacturers are installing industrial robots to form production and distribution efficient and easy. Industrial robots are used to reduce human involvement in the production process, thereby reducing the cost of manufacturing with improved quality and increased production capacity.

By geography, Asia Pacific is going to have significant growth during the forecast period. An increase in industrial production in countries, such as China, India, and Germany and strong growth purchase manager index numbers from Australia, China, and the UK will influence the growth in the Asia Pacific.

Some of the key players profiled in the Factory Automation and Industrial Controls include Rockwell Automation Inc., Honeywell International Inc., General Electric Co., ABB Limited, Dassault Systemes SE, Schneider Electric SE, Emerson Electric Company, Autodesk Inc., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Siemens AG, Aspen Technology Inc, Robert Bosch GmbH, Texas Instruments Inc., and Yokogawa Electric Corporation.
