Innovation in Information Technology, increase in disposable income, rise in demand of goods and services augmented by increase in population, hike in salaries and wages of labour, emergence of middle class and other are some of the factors expected to drive the industrial automation growth in the future. With the development of the Indian manufacturing sector, there has been a need for more competitive edge in terms of productivity, profitability, safety and sustainable manufacturing processes. The concept of semi-knock down manufacturing and domestic manufacturing is likely to increase in the future due to ‘Make in India’ initiative and relaxation of FDI policies in the manufacturing sector across different industries.

In addition to this, exports of automation products will become competitive in the world market due to hike in interest rates by Federal Reserve in the United States. The industrial automation market revenue are expected to augment at the CAGR of ~% from FY’2016 to FY’2020, reaching industry sales worth INR 197.0 billion in FY’2020 and is likely to sustain its control over manufacturing industries in the coming years.

In the coming future, industrial automation sector will witness deeper connections between the plant floor and the business along with the broader ecosystem which surrounds the manufacturer. The industry will mark a closer association between engineers who are located at the head-office and employees at manufacturing plant located far distant places.

The Analyst at Ken Research recommends that In order to compete on a global level and produce quality products, Indian manufacturers need to aim at improving capital and labour productivity. Moreover, hardening of industrial Ethernet networks are required to migrate to IPV6 that incorporate a stronger security model.
