On the basis of various technology types, the smart manufacturing market is segmented into programmable logic controller (PLC), manufacturing execution system (MES), distributed control system (DCS), enterprise resource planning (ERP), human machine interface (HMI), supervisory controller and data acquisition (SCADA), machine vision (MV), and other technologies. In the technologies segment, the enterprise resource and planning segment constituted the biggest market share, followed by the manufacturing execution system segment, in 2015. Enterprise resource and planning is largely used in automation, oil & gas, fishing, retail, media and entertainment, and military. Therefore, the segment generates the largest revenue among all the segments in the smart manufacturing market. In addition, it is ideal for producing digital services. Manufacturing execution system follows enterprise resource planning, and is one of the most widely used smart manufacturing technology to assimilate production operations across several layers comprising maintenance. MES can be particularly significant in structured industries such as food and beverage, and can document and track the evolution of raw materials into finished goods.
Based on end-user industries, the smart manufacturing market is segmented into automotive, food and beverage, aerospace and defense, consumer electronics, energy, and other industries. Rapid growth in demand for connected devices is one of the major factors that are driving the demand for smart manufacturing end-user industries, globally. Automotive and consumer electronics smart manufacturing provide their own resources such as warehouse operators among others. Smart manufacturing in the energy sector has been witnessing an astounding speed of consolidation, due to giant industrial conglomerates taking over smaller organizations rapidly.
In terms of regions, the smart manufacturing market has been segregated into five geographical zones: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. Currently, Asia Pacific held the major share of the market, followed by North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow swiftly with rise in trade with North America and Europe.
