Report Digest

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has had a huge impact on industrial operations, but it has mainly put functional safety on the top priority of manufacturing organizations around the world. Most companies have stopped or limited their business operations, however now most parts of the world are coming out of lockdown. The first thing that businesses are doing is to adoption functional safety systems to ensure complete safety of employees. This is the top factor that has been pushing the growth of the global market functional safety.

Strict Safety Standards and Governmental Regulations Boost Adoption of Safety Systems

COVID-19 has hampered business activities around the world and this eventually resulted in a weak world economy. In order to recover from the economic downturn, businesses are resuming their operations, while following the strict governmental norms and regulations about functional safety in the business area. Governments along with businesses are spending huge amounts of money on the implementation of functional safety systems in various manufacturing facilities as well as most public places. Consequently, this is expected to bolster growth of the functional safety market in the coming years.

High Investments and Changing Safety Norms act as a Restraint

Functional safety systems are an integral part of most manufacturing organizations today, as their adoption has become mandatory according to various safety norms and standards established by global governing bodies. However, constantly changing regulations and rules lead the enforced changes in the types of functional safety systems installed across various campuses. This, along with the high initial investments, add to the cost of such functional safety systems. Furthermore, constant advancements in technology is expected to make the existing functional safety systems obsolete. This, along with constantly changing mandates, makes upgrades in functional safety systems inevitable, and consequently hinders the growth of the market.

Automation and Industrial Internet of Things Trigger Growth Possibilities in New Markets

The rise of Industry 4.0 has remained an unwavering trend despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Manufacturers across various industries have been updating their production capabilities with the adoption of process automation systems and high-tech integrations of the industrial internet of things (IIoT). This is emerging as a new trend in the functional safety market, as players are integrating similar technologies in their offerings to offer smart functions such as real-time data monitoring and predictive analytics. This is also expected to create new opportunities for manufacturers introducing high-performance and high-tech functional safety systems in the coming years.

Functional Safety: US is the Largest Market and APAC the Fastest Growing Market

Among various regional markets, the United States is one of the largest markets for functional safety with a significantly large revenue share in this area. The country has strict rules and regulations about organizational safety, which mainly triggers the adoption of functional safety equipment in the region. Furthermore, advanced manufacturing capabilities of market leaders in the North American region is expected to add to the growth of the regional market.
