    Transparency Market Research (TMR) observes that the global industrial automation market is highly fragmented due to the presence of several players in the field. The top four players with a strong foothold in the global market hold just under 15 percent of the market share, which indicates the extent of fragmentation. However, there is some consolidation happening gradually as indicated by the acquisition of MYNAH Technologies by Emerson, Rockwell Automation’s acquisition of Maverick Technologies and ABB’s acquisition of Bernecker & Rainer (B&R).

    According to the TMR report, the global industrial automation market is anticipated to reach a valuation of USD 352.02 billion by the end of 2024 from USD 182.64 billion in 2015. Between the forecast years of 2016 and 2024, the global market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.6 percent. “Developing new technologies that deliver commercial excellence, functional transformation will be the key focus areas of these companies,” stated the lead author of this research report.

    The Indian Industrial Automation Industry is expected to reach INR 197 billion by 2020 with growth driven by rapid adoption of modern technology backed by cost saving features, says Ken Research, a global aggregator and publisher of market intelligence research reports, equity reports, data base directories and economy reports.

    The Factory Automation market has been the fastest emerging segment in the industrial automation market in India. Automotive industry has been an integral part of the factory automation since the inception of automation practices, thanks to assembly line mass production which includes welding, cleaning, joining solutions, engine assembly.

    The demand of Process Automation products has been primarily driven by pharmaceutical sector, largely due to the huge demand of medicines and other pharmaceutical products. The process automation market in India has been largely dominated by pressure transmitters.
