Market Insight, Drivers, Restraints& Opportunity of the Market:

The SMART Factory is a fully connected and flexible system that relies on smart manufacturing, thereby enabling the organizations to plan and forecast the life cycle of products and production facilities digitally. With the introduction of SMART factory, production facilities and logistics systems will be organized without human intervention. Though at an infancy stage, smart factory is considered an important outcome of the 4th industrial revolution or Industry 4.0.

The evolution of Industry 4.0 and integration of various technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), rising adoption of industrial robots and innovative technologies in manufacturing sector are the driving factors for global SMART factory market. The use of such technologies will enhance the quality, production and asset efficiency, thereby eliminating human and machine errors. Industrial Robots are gaining huge popularity are majorly used in big companies, to eliminate human intervention for several basic and complex tasks thereby increasing operational efficiency and increased productivity.

The biggest factor that deters the growth of global SMART factory market is the data and security related issues. Companies that use SMART factory rely a lot on technology and data integration, which may be targeted by various cyber-attacks. Moreover, smart technologies like PLM, ERP etc. might pose a major challenge in factories using conventional methods.  SMART factory is a highly capital intensive market which may also hamper the growth of this market.

Due to technological innovation for intelligent manufacturing and increasing adoption of automation technologies, the North American region is expected to account for the largest share of the SMART Factory market globally. Majority of government and private companies are investing in the SMART factory market for promoting the use of Industry 4.0 technologies, which directly impacts productivity benefit for manufacturers.

Manufacturers spend a significant amount of its revenue for its research and development specially focusing in product development and innovations. In April 2017, ABB and IBM entered into partnership for an Industrial Artificial Intelligence solution. This automation combination helped in in identifying critical faults during the manufacturing process, thereby improving the production lines. In June 2018, PTC and Rockwell Automation have combined together to offer a solution for industrial companies to transform their physical operations with digital technology.

Industry 4.0 or 4th revolution is a process to transform the orthodox production ways to manufacturing products using digitalization. A combination of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and the Internet of Systems makes Industry 4.0 possible and SMART factory a reality.

However, at present, the world is gripped with Covid-19 pandemics, wherein some manufacturers have closed production completely, some have seen reduced demands for products and services and others have seen a huge increase in demand. The prime focus for manufacturers is survival and damage limitation. Manufacturers are now reducing their non-essential spending and investments, including solutions and advanced methodologies by Industry 4.0 which fall under the category of non-essential activities. However, SMART Factory may have a slight chance to survive this crisis due to the capabilities is offers like real-time visibility, artificial intelligence which would help to re-assess plans and activities, use of mobile technology and augmented / virtual reality to help workers perform tasks more efficiently. Also, SMART factory technologies would make remote and virtual working efficient in times of lockdown and social distancing.
