[Report Description]

The North American smart manufacturing market is expected to reach a CAGR of 22.3% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for automation to achieve efficiency and quality, the need for compliance and government support for digitization, and the proliferation of the Internet of Things are some of the major driving factors impacting the growth of the market.

Key Highlights

  • North American manufacturers across all industries are establishing the advancement foundation by increasingly enhancing their level of automation. In a race to be competitive with global manufacturing hubs, like China and Japan, North America aimed towards developing and adopting robotic and automation technologies.​ Therefore, to save energy and to gain cost-benefit, the trend of factory automation and industrial control systems is gaining traction in the region.

  • The application of Big Data analytics in smart manufacturing aims to refine complicated processes, manage supply chains, and support new business models, like mass customization and product-as-a-service, which can be made possible by smart manufacturing apart from the traditional operational models like on-demand. Besides, big data analytics allows an enterprise to use smart manufacturing to shift from reactionary practices to predictive ones. This change targets improving the efficiency of the process and performance of the product, which in turn witnessed significant adoption in the region

  • The regional automotive sector has always led the way in implementing robotics in its manufacturing processes. Other industry manufacturers, like John Deere, are also making significant investments to integrate automated technology into their products and processes. The regional manufacturing industry has still not fully utilized these benefits. Hence, the scope of automation adoption product innovation is high in the region.

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 has triggered the manufacturing sector to re-evaluate its traditional production processes, primarily driving the digital transformation and smart manufacturing practices across the production lines. The manufacturers are also collectively being forced to devise and implement multiple new and agile approaches to monitor product and quality control.​

  • Moreover, access to testing and an adequate supply of treatment resources, especially the ventilators and respirators, is crucial. In order to aid in the effort to make the necessary medical devices as readily available as possible, Bright Machines, on March 2020, announced that it would provide no-cost access for up to 12 months for any of the Bright Machines Microfactory deployment associated with the COVID-19 response. ​

Key Market Trends

Robotics is Expected to Witness Significant Growth

  • Various kinds of industrial robots such as cartesian robots, collaborative industrial robots, and SCARA robots are witnessing demand in the region. North America is one of the major markets for industrial robots. According to IFR World Robotics 2020 Industrial Robots Report, the units shipped from the United States accounted for 30,800 units, whereas units shipped from Canada accounted for 2,600 units.

  • According to the Association for Advancing Automation, over 180,000 robots have been dispatched to various American companies since 2010, and more than 1.2 million new manufacturing jobs have been created during this time. According to MIT, automotive manufacturing accounted for a significant portion of the demand for industrial robots in the United States, followed by electronic and plastics and chemical manufacturing. This is anticipated to augment the growth of robotic process automation (RPA).​

  • Moreover, companies in the region are focused on expansion and customer acquisition. For instance, In April 2020, the US-based provider of autonomous mobile robots (AMR), Locus Robotics, added new a new international client, CEVA Logistics (CEVA), to its portfolio.​

  • Further, In 2020, Omron Corporation opened a new robotics and safety automation business headquarters in the United States. The company invested USD 10 million in the new facility, where it will design, develop, test, and manufacture robotic and safety automation solutions.​

United States is Expected to Grow Significantly

  • The United States is on the edge of the fourth industrial revolution, where data is utilized on a big scale for production while integrating the data with a variety of manufacturing systems throughout the supply chain. The country is also one of the largest automotive markets in the world and is home to around 13 major auto manufacturers. Automotive manufacturing is one of the largest revenue generators for the United States in the manufacturing sector.

  • Additionally, the country is home to various enterprises that are increasingly adopting automation to optimize operations. For instance, Schneider Electric launched the first Smart Factory in the United States to demonstrate in real-time how EcoStruxure architecture and related suite of offerings can help to enhance operational efficiency and reduce costs for customers.​​​

  • The US oil and gas industry has been a primary demand driver for PLC systems for automation tasks. Automation has not only enabled the high production of oil and gas in the country but has also been responsible for the smooth distribution of oil products within the country.​ Also, the formation of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership is an initiative undertaken to make the industry and the federal government invest in the upcoming technologies. This has helped the country to gain a competitive edge in the global economy substantially. The National Network for Manufacturing Innovation comprises developing regional hubs, which will be involved in developing advanced manufacturing technologies for making innovative products to be implemented in the sector.​

  • Moreover, the country is one of the largest producers of crude oil and a prominent player in the oil and gas industry. For instance, according to EIA, the country produced 24.94 quadrillion Btu in 2019, and by 2030, the production number is expected to reach 30.01 quadrillions Btu. Additionally, Texas (United States) produces the major share of crude oil in the country, and it is expected to hold a significant demand for production equipment. ​

Competitive Landscape

The North America smart manufacturing market is moderately competitive and consists of several major players. The major players with prominent shares in the market are focusing on expanding their customer base across foreign countries. The companies are leveraging strategic collaborative initiatives to increase their market share and profitability. Some of the recent developments are -

  • December 2020 - Emerson announced ASCO 141 Series Advanced Redundant Control System (ARCS) to include a solution for various emergency shutdown valve applications catering to chemical, power, and oil and gas industries. It is intended for use as an instrumented safety system component. The system s control functionality enables solenoid valve maintenance without shutting down the process valve.

  • October 2020 - Rockwell Automation and Microsoft partnered to create integrated, market-ready solutions that enable industrial customers to scale digital agility. The two organizations will collaborate for five years to deliver innovative edge-to-cloud-based solutions that connect information between development, operations, and maintenance teams through a single trusted data environment.
