Machine Safety Market Worth 6.58 Billion USD by 2025
Presence-sensing safety sensors held the largest size of the machine safety market in 2017
Presence-sensing safety sensors held the largest size, in terms of value, of the machine safety in 2017. Presence-sensing safety sensors used in safety systems are developed and designed to ensure a safe output based on logic if a signal transmission does not occur. Safety sensors play an important role in implementing machine safety solutions in various industrial applications. Presence-sensing safety devices are suitable for applications in which personnel need frequent and safe access to critical areas near robotic welding, stamping, hydraulic presses, filter presses, or packaging equipment. These safety sensors are often preferred over physical guards as these devices allow easier access for loading parts or for routine maintenance, thereby increasing productivity.
Robotics applications to hold the largest size of the market between 2018 and 2025
Safety is important in the robotics industry. Robotics applications hold the largest share of the machine safety market, and a similar trend is likely to continue between 2018 and 2025. Industrial robots are programmable mechanical machines that are used for moving parts, components, materials, and tools. Machine safety functions such as controlling, limiting, and positioning are a must for automated robotic processes. Machine safety products sense emergency situations and stop robots from making and damaging products or harming operators. Thus, the market for robotics applications is expected to grow at a considerable rate during the forecast period.
Automotive industry held the largest size of the machine safety market in 2017
The automotive industry held the largest size of the machine safety market in 2017. The rising demand for automobiles owing to the increase in population with purchasing power worldwide and the feasibility of easy loans is driving the growth of the market for the automotive industry. The development of environmentally friendly electric vehicles has led to the creation of a new segment of automobiles. Automotive companies focus on automation to address the fast-changing consumer needs in various markets worldwide. The rising adoption of machine safety systems, such as safety light curtains, safety switches, emergency stop devices, and safety sensors, for assembly, presses, and material handling applications in the automotive industry is driving the growth of the machine safety market for the automotive industry.
Europe to hold the largest size of the machine safety market between 2018 and 2025
Europe is expected to hold the largest size of the machine safety market throughout the forecast period. The presence of automotive manufacturers and increasing automation in the automotive industry in Europe support the growth of the machine safety market in this region. Manufacturing process in the automotive industry is complex; it requires safety measures to ensure the safety of personnel as well as machines for the smooth functioning of the industry. In addition, machine and industrial safety measures are strictly followed under various regulatory standards in Europe. Countries in this region are continuously focusing on automating discrete and process industries, along with maintaining high safety standards ensuring the safety of workers in these industries. Due to these factors, Europe is expected to hold the largest share of the machine safety market throughout the forecast period.
The machine safety market was dominated by players such as Rockwell (US), Pilz (Germany), Schneider (France), SICK (Germany), and Mitsubishi Electric (Japan), ABB (Switzerland), Honeywell (US), KA Schmersal(Germany), and Omron (Japan).
