Smart Pneumatics Market Dynamics
Smart Pneumatics Monitor’s Ability to Minimize Machine Downtimes Risk Auguring Well for Stakeholders
A smart pneumatics monitor enables operators to use a valve bank that communicates through an I/O Link with sensors to project wear before it results into machine downtimes. As smart pneumatics monitors enable early detection of when critical limits will be reached and predictive maintenance, their adoption in diverse industries, such as automotive, and semiconductor is growing. Furthermore, smart pneumatics monitor module offers authentic data about the state of actuators and energy efficiency of pneumatic systems without requiring the machine control. This decreases the risk of machine downtimes, thereby, lowering the operating costs.
Remote Diagnostic Capabilities of Smart Valves Bringing Traction to Smart Pneumatics Market
The rapidly advancing types of smart pneumatics, such as smart valves, are witnessing significant adoption across automotive, food & beverages, water and wastewater, and semiconductor industries, which are striving to reduce energy costs. Smart valves streamline different manufacturing processes, as they enable constant monitoring and fault diagnosis, which further ensure optimal performance of plants. Though, smart valve technology is currently at an initial development stage, several end-users are incorporating them into their systems as it adds to plant efficiency, enhances equipment monitoring and improves process control. The growing need for minimal unplanned downtime is necessitating the adoption of smart valves with remote diagnostic capabilities, which supply warning signals to maintenance team to address a problem before it hits the operation.
Rise of IIoT and Industry 4.0 Favoring Growth in Smart Pneumatics Market
The IIoT and Industry 4.0 require smarter devices across the entire manufacturing spectrum, and thus could necessitate the adoption of smart pneumatics significantly. With manufactures and end-users increasingly focusing on energy efficiency to reduce energy costs amid a global initiative to reduce carbon footprint, the demand for smart pneumatics is likely to grow. As companies realize the necessity of developing smart pneumatic components in order to capitalize the ever-evolving consumer preference for energy-efficient products, the smart pneumatics market is expected to proliferate.
Wide Applications of Smart Pneumatics in Automotive Industry Creating Growth Opportunities for Stakeholders
The global automotive sector is witnessing notable growth in the number of units produced per day. The machinery on the production floor requires proper maintenance to reduce production cycles and boost production output. As smart pneumatics systems play an integral part in ensuring efficient manufacturing processes, their applications in automotive market are growing. Auto makers are increasingly adopting IIoT systems to monitor asset condition and increase energy efficiency, which, in turn, is creating significant growth potential for smart pneumatics in the automotive industry.
