Highly competitive, the factory automation market appears fragmented due to the presence of several well-established players. FA control system manufacturers strive to strengthen their business structure by establishing new production units in rapidly growing countries. Such new plants expand their product manufacturing and service and support production capabilities to meet local demand for products.

They incorporate various features to achieve carbon neutrality and reduce carbon dioxide emissions through highly efficient air conditioning systems and LED lighting equipment. To meet sustainable development goals (SDGs), they reuse wastewater through underground filtration treatment and greening. To gain a larger competitive share, industry players incorporate strategic initiatives such as mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, expansion, and product/ technology launches.

For instance, on Jun 06, 2022, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that it is setting up a new factory automation equipment plant in India to create a third global production hub to drive revenue growth in the fast-growing market. The company will invest approximately Rs 2.2 billion in its subsidiary Mitsubishi Electric India Pvt. Ltd. This new production hub will strengthen the Japanese company’s supply chains, positioning Mitsubishi Electric as a leader in factory automation systems.

The rapidly growing Indian market is expanding at about 8%, mainly in industries such as automobiles, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, data centers, and textiles, and further market expansion is expected in the future. The new factory is expected to start operations in Dec. 2023 and manufacture inverters & other factory automation (FA) control system products, expanding Mitsubishi’s capabilities to meet the growing demand in India.
