Date: Sat, Aug 30th, 2014 12:00:00 am

As the demand for industrial automation technology grows, the technology continues to improve as well. New technologies such as mobile communication, cloud computing and cyber-security technologies will give the most invested business owners the competitive edge they need to outpace their competition and bring in the most profits with the least amount of waste.

With the amount of manufacturing that is automated today, it is almost hard to believe that industrial automation didn't exist less than a century ago. From its beginnings until now, industrial automation has seen a great deal of progress and promise. Here are four ways the industrial automation field is expected to grow over the upcoming years. 

Trends in Industrial Automation

1. Sustainability

As more and more business owners begin to recognize the Earth's dwindling resources, many business owners are making a conscientious choice for sustainability. In fact, sustainability is likely to be one of the major indicators of success in the industrial automation field. 

2. Reduced Waste

Not only do business owners want to be more responsible with the environment, but they also want to be more responsible with their own internal resource use as well. Business owners are looking to save energy and water, and the demand for machines and processes that help them to do this is only increasing. This will help companies reduce their expenses and increase their profits without sacrificing a quality product or low customer prices.

3. Economic Growth

Industrial automation is expanding all over the world. Not only will the technology continue to grow in North America and Western Europe, but the technology will also become increasingly popular in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia, particularly in countries such as Russia, China and India. More countries will acquire this technology, and countries that are already using it will update their systems.

4. Improved Technology

As the demand for industrial automation technology grows, the technology continues to improve as well. New technologies such as mobile communication, cloud computing and cyber-security technologies will give the most invested business owners the competitive edge they need to outpace their competition and bring in the most profits with the least amount of waste.
