Increasing Installation of Industrial and Automotive Robots to Favor Growth

The manufacturing sector across the globe has started accepting the adoption of robotics engineering and technology in every product process. The ongoing development in robotics is one of the vital reasons for the same. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) declared in its report that in 2017, around 381,000 robotic units were shipped globally, while approximately 2.1 million stand-alone automotive and industrial robots were installed. These robots have several benefits. They can eliminate the need for human labor and can perform repeatable tasks. However, industry 4.0 systems are very prone to cyberattacks as hackers can easily collect sensitive data of organizations. This factor is expected to obstruct the industry 4.0 market growth in the near future.

Key Players Aim to Acquire Local Companies to Strengthen Their Positions

Most of the major providers of industry 4.0 solutions are currently incorporating advanced technologies, such as 3D printing and digital twins to cater to the high industrial demand. Cisco Systems Inc. and Oracle Corporation are the two leading companies in the market. As the market scenario is very competitive, most of the firms are focusing on the acquisition strategy to strengthen their positions.
