The graph, therefore, shows the advancement of automation in terms of technology, politics, and the economy. The capability of the machinery is increased by using automation components to make it smarter. Motors, sensors, and actuators are useful for converting existing machinery into intelligent machinery. The installation of machinery also makes use of automation components.

Some industries that could use automation components are those in the medical, aerospace, defense, electronic, steel & metal sectors. The exponential growth in the global population has caused a tremendous increase in demand for basic goods such as electronics, personal care items, food, beverages, and medicines in developing nations like India, China, and Africa. Demand for manufacturing equipment has also expanded due to an upsurge in consumer product demand, which promotes the use of automation components in machine manufacturing & maintenance.

Additionally, since automation & robotics are employed in several sectors for production lines and other duties, the demand for automation components, including sensors, motors, screws, gears, and other parts, is growing. For small- and large-scale companies, leading players in the sector offer automation components. These scenarios are anticipated to fuel the market's expansion for automation components.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The pandemic adversely hit the manufacturing industry due to the decreased consumption of high-priced items and the consumers' desire to spend solely on the most basic goods and services. During the lockdowns, consumers curtailed their spending on consumer products, high-priced textiles, electronics, automobiles, or machinery, which impacted the market's primary application sectors. However, with nations restarting economic and trade activities with consumer lifestyles stabilizing, it is anticipated that expenditure on these products and services will increase, hence driving demand for automation solutions in the future years.

Market Growth Factors

Fourth industrial revolution (industry 4.0) in manufacturing sector

The automobile industry is projected to drive the implementation of automation & controls in this nation as many automakers seek to increase their investments there. In addition, the leading companies in the oil & gas and utilities sectors are reportedly aiming to upgrade their manufacturing facilities, which is anticipated to propel the market for automation components along with the rising investments in the automotive industry. Furthermore, increased consumer spending and the ability of companies to utilize automation to maintain or increase production output contribute to the market's expansion.

Reduced operating costs due to advent of IoT

The primary driving force behind the automation using IoT is the potential reduction in operating costs that results from the conversion of automation devices, transmitters, sensors, and actuators to internet-enabled components. The cost of labor represents half of the overall cost of operating an industrial facility, which is a major portion. Most of the time, there are two types of employees who work in manual labor, i.e., direct and indirect employees. Execution of the process is the responsibility of direct employees, and indirect staff is in charge of providing back-end support for direct staff. As a result, most businesses are turning to automation to cut operational costs, fueling the market for automation components.

Market Restraining Factors

Energy consumption, leakage and noise issue with actuators

Insufficient actuator maintenance may also result in excessive noise or air leakage. These systems are additionally known to collapse over time due to the dampening of their tubes' inner edges. In addition, the noise level during the operation of actuators is extremely high, and as a result, these systems are sometimes installed in separate rooms to reduce noise pollution. In some cases, using hazardous chemicals in actuators might result in the unintended release of chemicals into the air. This may have a negative impact on the nearby environment. These concerns with actuators may hinder their sales, hence inhibiting market expansion.

Components Outlook

Based on components, the automation components market is segmented into motors, gears, actuators, bearing, sensors, locating pins, bushing & coupling, linear shafts & guides, rollers, screws and stages. In 2022, the bearings segment registered a considerable revenue share in the automation components market. A machine component called a bearing is useful for limiting the relative motion to just the appropriate motion. By lowering the friction between the moving parts of a machine, bearings enable unrestricted linear movement of the connected parts around a fixed axis.

Industry Outlook

By industry, the automation components market is bifurcated into automotive, consumer electronics, chemical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, semiconductors, packaging and others. In 2022, the automotive segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the automation components market. This segment's significant market share can be attributable to the global automobile industry's prolific output. In addition, the demand for automobiles with technologically advanced solutions is on the rise, resulting in an increase in vehicle production that requires instrumented products.
