The market is driven by its growing use in application areas of discrete and process industries i.e. automotive, power, pharmaceutical, and semiconductors industries. Also, increased productivity of manufacturing companies, growing demand for customized products, and need for improved efficiency and precision are the factors encouraging deployment of these systems in the industries.

High initial investment, availability of low cost labors in emerging countries such as India, China, Indonesia, and need for skilled labors to operate the robots are some of the factors inhibiting growth of industrial controls and robotics market.

By product type, market has been segmented into - industrial control systems, field devices, and manufacturing execution systems (MES). Industrial control segment accounted for about half of the market share followed by field devices in 2012. Industrial control system is expected to maintain its leading position throughout the forecast period. Requirements for accurate precision and proper functioning of installed plants are the main factors flourishing growth of industrial control systems. Among all types of control systems, MES is expected to show fastest growth during the period of forecast. The demand for MES across end use industries is expected to grow owing to improved yield. Improvement in supply chain and inventory management also attracts most of the users to implement MES.

By end user industry, market is segmented into power, textiles, automotives, chemicals, printing and packaging, plastics, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, food processing, semiconductors, OEMs of aforementioned industries and others. Automotive industry held largest market share in 2012 and is expected to maintain its leading position throughout the forecast period owing to increasing demand for productivity. Pharmaceuticals industry is expected to show strong growth during the period of forecast as industrial automation help increase efficiency and reduce time of various operations such as compounding, washing, labeling, packaging and filling.

Geographically, Americas held largest share in industrial controls and robotics market in 2012 attributed to re-engineering in the old industrial segment with adoption of new technologies in North America and heavy exporting of goods from South America. RoW is expected to show fastest growth during the period of forecast because of the growing demand for industrial robots and control systems in oil and gas industries in this region. Asia Pacific is also expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period fueled by heavy investment in power industry in this region.
