The Industrial Automation Market

Transparency Market Research (TMR) observes that the global industrial automation market is highly fragmented due to the presence of several players in the field. The top four players with a strong foothold in the global market hold just under 15% of the market share, which indicates the extent of fragmentation. However, there is some consolidation happening gradually as indicated by the acquisition of MYNAH Technologies by Emerson, Rockwell Automation’s acquisition of Maverick Technologies and ABB’s acquisition of Bernecker& Rainer (B&R).

The show has attracted record participation with over 1000 companies from over two dozen countries represented at the event. The show is scheduled over four days from 9thto 12thAugust, 2017, and is supported by the Department of Science & Technology, Govt of India, and a host of other professional bodies.

Since inception fifteen years ago, Automation Expo has consistently evolved as a top-of-the-class platform to showcase the world’s best automation technologies at a single venue. The exhibition brings together the Who’s Who of the industry, decision makers, technocrats, and technology enthusiasts.f0f9fa8d12fac02c6c51d9397debd15d
