Global outlook for the manufacturing executions systems (MES) market in discrete industries

Discrete industries run on tight schedules with a need to respond quickly to evolving customer preferences. They are also pushed to maximize the efficiency of production processes, manage material acquisition better, lower manufacturing costs, improve quality, and reduce lead times. Manufacturing executions systems (MES) enable shop floor operators, technicians, and supervisors to record and monitor shop floor activities in an efficient manner. The increasing need to comply with stringent government regulations is one of the primary factors driving the growth of this market in the coming years. Industries, such as medical equipment technology industry, require stringent measures of quality in their product development. Therefore, it is imperative for such industries to direct their production as per the standards set by regulatory bodies such as CDSCO in India, SFDA in China, FDA in the US. Thus, to comply with the set standards and norms, the manufacturers must maintain detailed production records, which enables companies to achieve significant time and cost savings. MES solutions help in the stringent adherence to standard procedures and quality systems throughout the manufacturing process. Moreover, this system stresses on quality management by facilitating the early detection of problems that might occur during the production process. This system also helps in overcoming technical glitches by taking appropriate corrective actions, thereby avoiding any violation of quality requirements. According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global manufacturing executions systems market in discrete industries is envisaged to witness stupendous growth at a CAGR of more than 16% over the forecast period.

The integration with IoT for smart manufacturing and field operations is one of the upcoming trends propelling this market’s growth prospects during the predicted period. The majority of manufacturing companies are increasingly moving toward IoT to increase the efficiency and productivity of the plant. The devices and systems are connected by installing sensors in the factory and retrofitting older equipment to extract information. These devices are then connected to MES for multiple plant connectivity from the device to enterprise level and to assist in high-level decision making. MES based on IoT enables real-time monitoring throughout the manufacturing process and helps the enterprises to implement integrated management and control. Moreover, analyzing data and making information instantly available across the enterprise can result in improved efficiency, reduced raw material waste, better quality, energy management, and a reduction in downtime. Therefore, the increasing need to streamline business processes and optimize supply and demand will lead to the augmented adoption of MES in discrete industries over the next four years.
