Introduction & Scope
In manufacturing, higher-value equipment has been used for some time in closed hardwired network environments. Until now, sensors, programmable logic control (PLC), and PC-based controllers have been largely disconnected from information technology (IT) and operational systems. IT and operational systems are traditionally organized in hierarchical fashion with data silos and are constrained by a huge installed
base of legacy equipment. By connecting machines, a manufacturer can now create intelligent networks along the entire value chain that communicate and control each other autonomously.
The term "smart manufacturing" is often used in combination with the terms "Industrial Internet of Things" (IIoT), "Smart Factory," or "Industry 4.0". These terms underline the same goals: interconnectivity, interdependence, and integration of manufacturing processes that leverage data to deliver more information, leading to greater productivity and less waste.
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The focus of this study is the sizing and segmentation of smart manufacturing over the next five years. The report addresses the key component of smart manufacturing, driven by the Internet of Things, and analyzes the markets and applications by region.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
Smart manufacturing is expected to bring major progress in operational manufacturing, production flexibility, and productivity. Smart manufacturing is in its early stages, but there is already a significant revenue opportunity with strong growth expected over the next five years. BCC Research has determined that the total market opportunity for smart manufacturing will grow from $131 billion in 2015 to $392 billion in 2020 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) close to 20%.
This BCC Research study on smart manufacturing was conducted with a global perspective. Market projections for investments in smart manufacturing were developed for the five major regions with all market table values in 2016 U.S. dollars. The report provides an understanding of the way markets will be affected by smart manufacturing and insight into the new opportunities created by smart manufacturing.
