Analyst Perspective:

In recent years, the global industrial sector has experienced an increase in the adoption of industrial automation. Programmable logic controller (PLCs) are electronic devices programmed to perform tasks such as monitoring and control. PLC-based automation has various advantages over older industrial automation systems. Products in programmable logic controller market are more efficient but less expensive to maintain than previous technologies. Furthermore, they are more flexible and functional than earlier systems, making them well-suited to the ever-changing needs of the modern industrial sector. With the growing awareness of the benefits of products in programmable logic controller market, their adoption is likely to increase in the coming years. A product in programmable logic controller market is a computer designed to monitor and handle a wide variety of industrial processes, ranging from simple machines to sophisticated production lines. These controllers can be linked to sensor and controller networks, allowing them to function autonomously or in collaboration with other devices. Thus, products in programmable logic controller market are critical to the smooth and effective running of industrial automation systems.

Well-planned production and marketing processes are the prerequisites for manufacturers to set up an "intelligent factory," which makes the production process easier to control, eliminates manual interference with the production line, allows the gathering of correct production line data on time, and improves production scheduling and planning. A variety of digital and analog control devices available in the market include PLCs controlling the start and stop of a motor; the opening and closing of solenoid valves; the counting of products; and controlling and setting temperature, pressure, and flow, among others. Products in programmable logic controller market are now widely utilized in industries such as steel, petroleum, chemical, electric power, building materials, machinery production, automobile, textile, transportation, environmental protection, and culture and entertainment. For instance, in June 2023, Siemens announced the launch of a full virtual PLC. The Simatic S7-1500V increases the existing Simatic offering while also aiding in virtual PLC computing.

Programmable logic controller Market Overview:

The use of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in industrial automation is likely to increase and transform as the industrial sectors are moving toward Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Products in the market have historically been employed as standalone devices. However, due to the growing trend of connectivity, these systems may now communicate with other devices and systems with the use of the Ethernet and other networking protocols. This enables real-time data sharing along with remote monitoring and control. The integration of PLCs with other industrial control systems is gaining popularity as businesses attempt to streamline processes and improve efficiencies.

The reach of industrial control and automation technologies is expanding beyond the manufacturing sector. For instance, in March 2021, ABB provided 5-gigatonne (GW) solar plant automation systems in India using programmable logic controllers. ABB's SCADA system, an automation control solution, aids in operations at solar project plants by allowing plant operators to monitor and analyze project data from a single location.

Programmable logic controller Market Driver:

Consolidating Role of PLCs in Industry 4.0 Drives Growth of Programmable logic controller Market

Technological advancements such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, advanced sensors, and big data analytics continue to have a substantial impact on environments in industrial sectors. These breakthroughs in industrial technologies are known colloquially as Industry 4.0. PLCs play an important role as the primary control, input hub, and interface for human operators in the new industrial world. PLC technology is being enhanced further to provide greater connectivity with many input sensors via the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), which allows them to serve as a core processor in real-time manufacturing operations. As a result, PLCs can now capture massive amounts of data with ease and feed it to machine learning systems. Data from input sensors and other devices, for example, might be combined with PLC data to illustrate the "big picture" that arises from the "big data." Plant managers and data analysts can then employ analysis tools to track big data better, leverage resources, perform logistics, schedule jobs, and plan duties such as supplier timing to develop highly efficient manufacturing processes. Further, "big data" can be tracked and evaluated for optimal machine and equipment performance and preventative maintenance within industrial systems.

PLCs, along with other critical parts that enable machine interface and process automation, have played an essential role in the digitization of manufacturing in recent years. They are further likely to play a significant role as the primary control, input center, and human–machine interface (HMI) for workers amid the Industry 4.0 revolution. The future smart factories are expected to flourish on the combination of PLCs, automation, and robotics. Thus, the consolidating role of PLCs in Industry 4.0 bolsters the growth of the programmable logic controller market.

Programmable logic controller Market Segmental Analysis:

Based on the offering, the programmable logic controller market is segmented into hardware-based PLC and software-based PLC. PLCs are the backbone of control systems in industrial automation, allowing for efficient monitoring and control of processes. They are made up of hardware and software components working in tandem. In industrial settings, a software component is increasingly replacing an equivalent hardware component. Software-based programmable logic controllers (soft PLCs) are dependable, powerful, and adaptable. In September 2017, 3S-Smart Software Solutions, a developer of the manufacturer-independent Codesys IEC 61131-3 automation software, announced that its SoftPLC software is now available as a runtime environment for open Linux-based control systems such as Wago's PFC 100 and Siemens' Simatic IOT2000.
