Highest Growing Market

Asia Pacific

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Safety Light Curtains Market is accounted for $1.1 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $1.7 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. A safety light curtain uses light beams and a receiver to create an unseen, regulated space. It is an electrically sensitive gadget. These are typically used to shield employees from dangerous moving equipment including presses, winders, and palletizers.

According to the Organization Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), the automotive market registered a growth of ~6% in Asia-Pacific (in terms of sales of new vehicles). Further, according to OICA, from 2020 to 2021, the increase in registration or sales of new vehicles (of all types) in India was ~4% year-on-year and reached 26.3 million vehicle units.

Market Dynamics:


Rise of digital platforms in manufacturing

Manufacturing facilities may now operate around-the-clock thanks to the use of automated machinery and technology as a result of digital manufacturing. Components including distributed control systems (DCS), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), & supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are used to operate and control automated machinery. The use of several contemporary technologies & highly automated manufacturing techniques that necessitate the installation of numerous sensors and components for effective operation define this idea of the industrial revolution. Applications for security component will rise together with the use of smart machines. An effective fail-safe system is necessary since machines function automatically to safeguard the security of plant employees.


Limited awareness regarding benefits of safety light curtains among SMEs

Due to their propensity for using semi-automatic equipment, small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) may not be familiar with the high operational productivity of safety light curtains. Furthermore, small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) are in fierce competition with large corporations. To gain a competitive edge, SMEs are gradually embracing Industry 4.0 because it offers optimisation, efficiency, flexibility, and scalability, as well as predictive maintenance, which would enable quick responses, informed decisions, and increased business productivity. As was already indicated, these organisations struggle to expand their business and draw in investors.


Rapid automation in industries

The rising industrialization and automation of several sectors is boosting demand for safety light curtains worldwide. The majority of emerging industries are implementing these technologies to reduce operational expenses and improve the efficiency of industrial equipment. Additionally, the addition of robots and autonomous equipment to industrial areas has made them smarter, which is increasing demand for these gadgets. Moreover, the business for safety light curtains will expand quickly along with the e-commerce sector and the warehouse system. As these tools substantially aid in reducing industrial mishaps, the growing safety requirements in industrial settings have also been beneficial for the growth of the safety light curtain market.


Inability of safety light curtain to protect from secondary hazards

Safety light curtains have presence-sensing systems that turn off the machine when they detect human interaction inside a predetermined safe zone. Whenever a safety light curtain's boundary is crossed, it alerts the machine to instantly discontinue operation. Safety light curtains cannot provide protection against secondary risks such as flying debris, sparks, splashes, smoke, or flashes often associated with robotic welding, even when the machine stops instantly. Burns to the skin, respiratory dangers, and temporary or permanent blindness are just a few of the terrible effects of flying debris. In addition to flying debris, secondary dangers like sparks, splashes, smoke, or flashes can put people's health at risk.

Covid-19 Impact

The epidemic provided industry with opportunity by increasing demand for automation and digitalization. The epidemic has brought up problems including a labour shortage, broken supply chains, and logistical problems in industrial facilities. Therefore, the market expansion was backed by automation and robots' capacity to address these problems and pave the way for recovery. Production facilities that are available around-the-clock increased operational efficiency while requiring less maintenance work from people. As industrial facilities throughout the world continue to implement automation and robots, the safety light curtain market is anticipated to expand rapidly.

The robotics segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The robotics segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to the expanding use of robots across a variety of industries, including automotive, semiconductor & electronics, and food & beverage. Additionally, the demand for safety light curtains is being supported by the strict safety rules related with the deployment of robots in the workplace. It covers the safety factors required for effectively operating fixed industrial robots and robot systems as well as their automated usage in combination with other ancillary devices.

The automotive segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The automotive segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to rising demand for cars caused by the world's expanding population. Among the man-machine systems utilised in car assembly factories are conveyor machines, robotic arms, welding equipment, and press machines. The right safety standards, tools, and control systems are often put in place after the installation of these systems. To protect workers' safety and stop accidents that can happen as a result of improper machine management, car manufacturing facilities incorporate safety equipment and control systems, such as safety light curtains. The market for safety light curtains is expanding as a result of the increasing use of these barriers in the automotive sector for pressing, assembly, and material handling tasks.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to focuses on large-scale industrial manufacturing, features several manufacturing facilities. The manufacturing industry in Asia Pacific is mostly driven by China, which is one of the greatest manufacturing nations in the world. Numerous multinational corporations have established production facilities in Asia Pacific and are implementing a rigorous safety requirement, which is fueling the expansion of the market for safety light curtains.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to region's prominence as a manufacturing hub, major auto suppliers are heavily investing in the region's smart factory sector. Most major businesses across a variety of sectors have relocated their manufacturing facilities to Asia Pacific as a result of the region's cheap operating expenses. One of the key elements anticipated to fuel the safety light curtain market's expansion in the Asia Pacific region is the rising number of automation initiatives in the process and discrete sectors.
