From $62.1 billion in 2021, the global IoT in manufacturing market value is expected to witness a CAGR of 13.9%, to reach $200.3 billion by 2030. This can be ascribed to the need for enhancing inventory management, growing requirements for higher production efficiency, and rapid industrial automation. Various industries have started implementing IoT due to the rising awareness on the fact that it plays a significant role in industrial automation. IoT can create new technologies for solving problems, increasing productivity, and enhancing operations.
In addition, IoT devices are helping in improving inventory management, by allowing manufacturers to automate inventory tracking and reporting. This ensures transparency and the constant monitoring of the time between an inventory order and its delivery. It also saves the valuable time of officials in finding any inventory. IoT-driven inventory management solutions save inventory cost and help manufacturers take a tactical business decision. In this regard, government initiatives such as Making Indonesia 4.0, Made in China 2025, and Make in India, are playing an important role in the industry advance.
When the IoT in manufacturing market is segmented based on component, the solution category held the larger share in 2021. It was because most manufacturing companies are inclined toward deploying IoT solutions as they help enhance the manufacturing process and grow their business. In addition, the IoT solutions used for manufacturing offer better control over the supply chain and reduce infrastructure and operational costs. The solutions include an array of sensors and transceivers and other components that help establish an internet connection with the production machine.
In the coming years, APAC is expected to witness the fastest IoT in manufacturing market growth. It will be because of the surging demand for IoT solutions in the manufacturing industry for smart automation. One of the most-significant pillars of the APAC economy is manufacturing, and it is witnessing rapid transformation due to the benefits of IoT solutions. On the other hand, North America is predicted to hold the largest market share in the coming years. It can be attributed to the fact that many large, medium, and small manufacturing enterprises in the region are using IoT.
Therefore, the strong focus of manufacturing firms on automating their process and adopting technologies that can help in predictive maintenance will drive the market.
