New technologies are opening a new era in automation for manufacturers—one in which humans and machines will increasingly work side by side. The manufacturing sector is most likely to transform in the coming years. Currently, the industry is witnessing a shift from manual assistance to automation, thus giving rise to the term "industrial automation". Most of the modern large-scale manufacturing operations are automated and require minimum or no human intervention.
To meet the current requirements, industrial automation is certainly the need of the hour and this is because the conventional manufacturing mechanisms are inadequate to meet the current requirements. The two major factors driving industrial automation are the introduction of favorable policies towards the manufacturing sector and increased focus on economic diversification in emerging markets. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing use of enabling technologies in manufacturing, connected supply chain along with mass production to cater to the rising population, rising adoption of industrial robots in the manufacturing sector, government initiatives towards the adoption of industrial automation in various industries. Automation in the manufacturing industry uses intelligent machines in factories to carry out the manufacturing processes with minimal human intervention and tasks that require endurance, speed, and precision. Some of the top benefits of automation in manufacturing include -
