The smart factory market is growing swiftly. High investments in R&D and internet of things (IoT) is driving the market. Innovation is a key driver in Smart Factory. The Smart Factory market is globally emerging across world. There has been a recent trend of using robots in industrial controller mechanisms. This trend is majorly responsible for growth of smart factory market.

There is a recent news about BMW, a leading automaker in Germany that they are taking their steps towards Smart Factory Market. BMW also shows that they have made recent developments in industrial robotics and expect to have approximately 60 lightweight robots for their operations. BMW says that modernization of the work environment in the company’s production areas is a continuation of an ongoing policy of advancement.

The smart factory has many benefits as resource efficient production, adaptability, increased agility, flexibility, reduction in material handling costs and others. The smart factory market has few restraining factors such as shortage of skilled workers, lack of interoperability. There has been an increasing threat of cyber security which has also resulted as a restraining factor for smart factory market. Also, the transition to smart factory would require high costs and there are expenses involved in upgrading the legacy systems.
