Research scope of the global industrial automation market in F&B industry

To calculate the market size, this research report considers revenues generated from the sales of industrial automation products such as distributed control systems (DCS), PLC (programmable logic controller), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), and manufacturing execution systems   (MES). Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global industrial automation market in F&B to grow at a CAGR of close to 10% over the next four years.

Most F&B manufacturers and producers are focusing on the safety and traceability of food products. The F&B industry is required to adhere to regulations and standards such as the food and drug administration (FDA) and hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP). Industrial automation products such as MES offer effective traceability of food products by keeping a record of data and integrating field devices such as sensors and remote terminal units (RTUs) directly with the enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. These industrial solutions are useful for manufacturers to identify faulty links in their supply lines for improving product quality.

Market segmentation of the global industrial automation in F&B by products

  • DCS
  • PLC
  • MES

Key findings of this market research analysis indicate the PLC segment is likely to reach a market size of nearly USD 1.29 billion by 2019. PLC is a microprocessor-based device that is used to control industrial processes in the F&B industry. PLC provides control over automation applications in the plant by maintaining direct connectivity with different field devices such as sensors, transmitters, and actuators. It receives commands and signals from field devices and other industrial systems through a control system communication protocol. It then uses various programming languages such as ladder diagrams, functional block diagrams, and instruction lists to facilitate smooth functioning in the plant.
