The Industrial Control market is expected to grow from $120.0 billion in 2010 to $185.0 billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 7.58% from 2011 to 2016. The key companies with respect to factory automation include Siemens (Germany), ABB (Switzerland), Emerson Process Management (U.S.), Rockwell Automation (U.S.), Schneider Electric (France), Honeywell (U.S.), Omron (Japan), Yokogawa (Japan), and others.

Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate due to increase in production activities in APAC, cheap labor, huge population base, and lucrative government policies. China is the growth engine for automation in Asia in spite of lower levels of plant automation. India too is gaining factory automation market shares worldwide.

The various subsets of automation include robotics, control systems, IT systems, and manufacturing execution systems (MES), all chiefly responsible for reducing human interaction in the process, thus, lowering labor and production costs, and increasing throughput or production output. The other common industry terms for the capabilities, components, and aspects of automation include human machine interface (allowing for system operator and human supervision), distributed control systems (DSC), SCADA, conveyor belts, conveyance systems, and programmable logic controllers (PLC). Robotics, particularly robotic arms, are common features in factory automation due to their precision, reduction in human labor costs, advantages in handling, and reduction of human risks and exposure to production hazards.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
