Rise in industrial automation
The increase in industrial automation will drive the market for light curtains. Industrial automation can result in reducing the manufacturing time dramatically. The level of industrial automation will be affected by the demand for automation equipment, which is seen in the developed economies that are heading toward commodity production.
Neelesh Prakash Singh, a lead power research analyst at Technavio, says, “Industrial automation facilitates the performance of monotonous tasks, better allocation of resources, and improves the quality of the products manufactured. Industrial automation is directly linked to the performance of end-users, especially those that rely on high-volume output and process repeatability. These end-user industries, which have a high reliance on automation include the metal and materials, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, oil and gas, automotive, and packaging industries.”
Increasing number of industrial accidents
Automation is widely prevalent in several industrial sectors and is linked to the increasing number of accidents at the workplace. Automated activities include store management, assembly, packaging, processing, and materials handling. When most of the work is automated and is no longer under the control of human workforce, the risk of unexpected machine movements increases.
“Automated machines are not completely reliable as there is no guarantee that the machines are free from errors. To tackle these problems, employees must be given proper training on working in automated manufacturing facilities; it is also essential to maximize the knowledge pertaining to the capabilities of the robots deployed in an industrial facility,” adds Neelesh.
Growth in packaging industry
The packaging industry is witnessing a strong growth due to the development of retail chains, healthcare, the packaged food product sector, and the cosmetic sector. A number of manufacturing companies are investing in robotic technology as it can ensure better safety and enhance productivity. Owing to the technological advances, reduction in cost, and increase in the ease of use of robotic technology, the adoption of industrial automation is higher across the packaging industry.
The growth in the packaging sector is booming in emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, and Russia. The growth in the packaging industry is witnessed due to the increase in disposable incomes and standards of living. With the increase in global competition, vendors in the packaging industry focus on producing high-quality products at the lowest prices possible.
