The global machine safety market size was valued at USD 5.28 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 5.43 billion in 2023 to USD 7.79 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period of 2023-2030. The Asia-Pacific dominated the machine safety market with a share of 31.81% in 2022.

Machine safety refers to system controls and software that are integrated with the system to alert individuals of hazard zones during a machine operation. Also, these advanced instruments provide instantaneous responses by stopping the ongoing operation of machines through sensors and controls.

The global market is estimated to grow progressively with the rising adoption of technology across production lines in automotive, electronics and electrical, and oil & gas. These are some critical zones where individual safety during the operations leads to accidents. Machine safety primarily uses safety switches, safety controls, modules, & relays, along with programmable systems that ensure safety with minimal or no accidents happening during the machine operation.


The COVID-19 resulted in a major deficit in the market, causing workforce availability at minimum wages. This caused a decline in investments and funding across Industry 4.0 owing to high initial investments. Safety Machines are an essential part of Industry 4.0 that responded correspondingly and noticed a significant drop in sales of essential safety components across the industry. However, post-pandemic recovery has developed essential revenue growth for industry participants owing to high safety standards and resumed supplying safety machine components, which is augmented to grow revenue significantly in the long term.


Growing Collaboration Robot Implementation to Drift Machine Safety Adoption

Machine safety adoption is set to drift due to Industrial Revolution 4.0, which has lifted the automation levels to its high. The continuous production lines and operation efficiency achievement through collaboration robots is a leveraging trend. Also, the integration of safety sensors into these machines and co-bots to ensure individual safety is a necessary process. Thus, to achieve operational efficiency and human safety at the workplace, safety products are important and will expand the machine safety market share over the forecast period.

  • For instance, in April 2023, SICK sensor intelligence launched 3D Cameras with integrated time of flight technology. The technology comes with machine vision and a safety camera with programmability that protects the co-bots from collision.

Rising Industrialization to Drive Demand For Machine Safety

Machine safety demand revived positively with the growing industrialization and the need for modern engineering products driving the holistic demand. Further, the rising use of advanced machining processes across product engineering is augmented to drive the forecasted demand. The modern engineering process integrated with modern robotic process automation needs safety from human intervention through new-age safety solutions, such as light curtains and safety controllers, to expand machine safety market growth during the forecast period.

  • For instance, in December 2022, Rockwell Automation, a leading automation technology leader, launched an advanced serially connected input solution for safety designated to reduce installation costs and machine downtime.


High Preventive Maintenance and low Quality Components to Disseminate Market

Machine safety devices need quick monitoring analysis and control systems. However, many niche and small players offer small components and products at much lower costs than average which frequently disturbs the machine safety intrusion capabilities. Also, frequent needs to change the low quality components and high expenses on preventive maintenance is augmented to disseminate the market.
