Industrial automation is the use of control systems, such as computers or robots, and information technologies for handling different processes and machines in an industry to replace a human being. It is the second step beyond mechanization in the scope of industrialization.
Industrial automation in India
India has enormous potential to grow by expanding its industrial base. Progress will require reforms at many levels, as well as a willingness to embrace new technologies, especially in the area of industrial automation.
Research compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) for ABB shows that India’s manufacturing sector has barely grown as a proportion Gross Domestic Product (GDP) (17%) over the past 20 years, even as the economy has quadrupled in size. India now faces the challenge of industrialising at a time when global economic growth has slowed down, and low-cost, labour-intensive manufacturing is facing increasing competition from other countries and from advances in technology.
If India is to achieve its goals of increasing manufacturing output to 25% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2022, along with the creation of 100 million jobs, it will have to implement rapid reforms to attract investment as well as embrace new technologies with the aim of developing industries at higher rungs of the value chain.
