New York, July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Industrial Control & Factory Automation Market by Solution, Component, Industry, Region - Global Forecast to 2026" -

Market for industrial sensors to account for largest market share in component during the forecast period
The industrial sensors segment is expected to hold the largest share of the industrial control & factory automation market. The growth of the industrial sensors segment is driven by the growing adoption of Industry 4.0 and IIoT, and the growing wireless sensors market. Predictive maintenance is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the players in the industrial sensors market in the coming years. Predictive maintenance is enabled by 3 major solution enhancements over a traditional maintenance schedule: capturing sensor data, facilitating data communications, and making predictions. As sensors are an important part of predictive maintenance solutions, the demand for industrial sensors is expected to increase significantly in the coming years.

PAM solution to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period
The PAM segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing deployment of PAM solutions in process and discrete industries to build a comprehensive data repository related to different equipment installed in these plants, right from their uptime performance to their life cycle cost assessment.

Oil & gas process industry to account for largest market share during the forecast period
Industrial control & factory automation solutions can enable the oil & gas industry to monitor the facilities remotely and gain insights into daily inventory and equipment conditions.Remote monitoring can compensate for the shortage of skilled workforce for collecting equipment data.

It also reduces the risk to the lives of employees and improves the overall safety and efficiency of industrial workers.

Medical devices discrete industry to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period
In the medical devices industry, industrial control & factory automation solutions help improve manufacturing processes, planning, technology assessment, third-party services, and remote support. Industrial control & factory automation technologies also help reduce recalls and wastes and increase the profitability of the companies engaged in the manufacturing of medical devices due to precision in manufacturing.

APAC is expected to capture largest market size during the forecast period”
The APAC industrial control & factory automation is projected to capture the largest market size, driven by the increasing adoption of automation technologies across industrial sectors in China and India.Factory automation is increasing in China, due to high labor wages and the presence of a large number of automotive manufacturing plants.

Growing population, rising standards of living, and developing economies have led to the rising demand for energy.It is estimated that APAC could drive approximately 65% of the global energy demand by 2035, with China and India collectively expected to fulfill 40% of the demand.

Oil and gas companies in North America and Europe have started investing in APAC to fulfill the growing energy demand.The increasing energy demand would lead to the development of the energy sector, including oil & gas and power industries.

This, in turn, would generate demand for automation products in the APAC region.
