Global Smart Manufacturing Platform Market - Snapshot

At its core, smart manufacturing platforms point to end-to-end software framework, which takes all the data from industrial devices and puts it through different applications. Through the smart manufacturing platforms, device management, data flow, communication, and functionality of the applications can be facilitated.

The connection between Industry 4.0 technology and smart manufacturing platforms permits companies to blend with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The emphasis here is on procuring, analyzing, and utilizing as much data as possible. The smart manufacturing platforms are used in fields such as asset management, condition monitoring, and performance optimization.

More and more usage of Industry 4.0, an increasing need for consistent and efficient data, and government support in taking up industrial automation are several factors that would enhance the growth of smart manufacturing platforms. The growth of the smart manufacturing platforms market is, however, hampered by lesser number of workers in the IoT industry and continuous improvements made to the software. For the expansion of smart manufacturing platforms in the coming years, varied strategies such as acquisitions, mergers, and the launch of new products are expected to play crucial role.

Microsoft, arguably the most dominant software firm in the market, signed up for a partnership with Google in July 2020. This proved to be beneficial for the market as it helped speed up IIoT adoption. Two years ago, another software giant -IBM- introduced Watson, which is the company's question-answering computer system with an ability to move across any cloud in an attempt to prevent vendor lock-in.

In 2018, Fujistu and Amazon Web Services entered into a collaboration agreement, which allowed customers to relocate their IT-related activities into the AWS cloud. Also, in 2018, the Alibaba Cloud and Siemens announced partnership to promote IIoT services in China. The smart manufacturing platforms market has several key players including Microsoft Corporation and IBM. The smart manufacturing platforms market is divided into various regions such as North America, Asia Pacific, Europe and rest of the world.
