The manufacturing industry is continuing to embrace automation, according to recent reports. Fortune Business Insights projects the global industrial automation market will grow to $395.09 billion by 2029, up from $191.89 billion in 2021. This projection would represent a 106% market growth over eight years.
Benefits and Challenges of Automation
The International Society of Automation (ISA) states that the increased investment in automation is a result of increased productivity and flexibility, reduced operational costs, and improved workforce safety. Automation can help streamline every step of the manufacturing process, from procurement to production to quality assurance to supply chain.
However, there are a few notable drawbacks to automation as well. The ISA article cites the unavailability of experienced automation professionals as a key challenge. As investment in automation continues to increase, manufacturers must find solutions to recruit a well-trained and experienced workforce.
