Programmable logic controller (PLC) as a digitally operating electronic system, designed for use in an industrial environment, is used to control different types of machines or processes. The global PLC market, which comprises of Nano PLC, Small PLC, Medium PLC, Large PLC, Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC), Software, and Services, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% from 2016 to 2021 and reach $13,145.1 million by 2021.

Research Highlights

The aim of this study is to analyze the developments of the PLC market in the global level and present an outlook on market growth, opportunities, and performance. The major focus is market trends (drivers and restraints); regional trends (North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific, and rest of the world). The study highlights opportunities created by PLC manufacturers, third party hardware and software developers, and internet/technology companies that are integrating industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions into PLCs and investing in the development of next-generation control technologies.

Market measurements and revenue forecasts were estimated for 2016–2021 (PLC market by region, product, and end user industries). Market focus and market share details of key participants, such as Rockwell Automation, Inc., Siemens AG, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Schneider Electric, and ABB are included. The base year for the study is 2016 and forecast period is from 2017 to 2021.

Key Issues Addressed

  • What is the present state of the global PLC market? What is PAC and why is sometimes PAC preferred? Is the global PLC/ PAC market growing, how long will it continue to grow, and at what rate?
