In 2017, the manufacturing industry showed seven trends

2017 is the first year of the manufacturing industry, with the 2016 "Chinese 2025 strategy", "intelligent manufacturing intelligent manufacturing development plan (2016--2020)" launched a series of macroeconomic policy, in 2017 for the manufacturing sector, is destined to be an extraordinary year. According to the latest data from IHS, the manufacturing sector is showing seven trends in 2017, and analysts have given their forecasts.
1, the global automation market will be contrarian growth
In 2017, the global industrial automation equipment (IAE) market will grow at a rate of 1.5%. In 2016, many equipment suppliers' income declined, and there were uncertainties in many equipment investment markets. The outlook for growth in different sectors of the industry will be different. It is expected that 2017 growth will continue to be difficult, mainly because of the formation of low oil prices and reduced sales of heavy machinery.
2, cloud computing will be transferred to the edge of the calculation
In 2016, the global release of many cloud platforms to support the services of the Internet of things in the manufacturing industry. Remote cloud analysis services have obvious advantages of scalability and cost, but users are still worried about the consequences of network security. IHS expects that in 2017, the internal cloud system and edge analysis will expand, and the re education market will lead to more confident companies, and remote cloud can provide good support.
3, manufacturing outsourcing is better than upgrading automation
Since 2014, the advantages of offshore factories have been further weakened by changes in exchange rates, transportation costs and trade agreements. IHS expects more U.S. firms to invest in automated production over the next 2017 years, using tax incentives and skilled labour force to increase revenues rather than outsource production.
4, the integration of IT and OT will become a new battlefield
To achieve the integration of IT and OT, and software vendors to cooperate, is the future development of automation companies. Some automation vendors bought software vendors last year to expand their smart manufacturing portfolio by integrating. IHS expects 2017 software vendors will become the target for automation companies, acquisitions and cooperation will accelerate.
5, the equipment market will be further consolidated
2017 will be through some equipment to increase and consolidate the market year, such as motors, generators, turbines and Generators Market integration. For market leaders, they still choose to maintain or even expand their market share, and 2017 of market growth is expected to remain weak.
6, connection standards will dominate
As the number of end users increases, the opportunities for networking of industrial networking systems are magnified, and new connectivity standards are likely to come. Is expected in 2017, OPCUA technology architecture and TSN time sensitive web standards will bring new standards for future connection.
7, the factory workshop artificial intelligence utilization rate rises
In 2017, robots with connectivity and perception will continue to lead the development of intelligent manufacturing, and with the advances in AI technology, industrial robots will become more intelligent and able to sense, learn and make their own decisions.
