A smart factory is an advanced and automated manufacturing facility with cyber-physical systems ensuring efficient movement of materials across the factory floor. Smart Factories basically help in the Automation of the manufacturing process. These utilize devices such as sensors, motors, drives, switches and relays along with wired, wireless and radio frequency identification (RFID) network technologies. Better quality, increased productivity and lower operational cost as compared to traditional production systems are the various benefits of Smart Factory. Optimizing the value chain, optimizing the energy usage, and the integration of engineering and manufacturing by the adoption of IoT and M2M communication are the key factors driving the growth of the Industry. However, the major restraining factors are the shortage of trained workers, lack of interoperability and standardization. Other limiting factors include is the high transition cost involved in smart manufacturing and varied interfaces and protocols of industrial devices and equipment. APAC is expected to dominate the Smart Factory Market over the forecasted period owing to high growth being observed in the manufacturing sector in India and China.
