At a glance:

The market for Industry 4.0 products and services is expected to grow to $310B by 2023. These numbers are based on the state of I4.0 adoption across manufacturing verticals and the analysis of two distinct technological subsets of the I4.0 market: the connected industry building blocks and other I4.0 supporting technologies.

The connected industry building blocks subset of the I4.0 market is further broken down into the 6 building blocks (hardware, connectivity, cloud platform & analytics, applications, cybersecurity, system integration), and 7 regions (North America, Europe, Asia, Middle East & Africa, Oceania, South America, Other).

The I4.0 supporting technologies subset of the I4.0 market is further broken down into the 6 supporting technologies (additive manufacturing [3D printing], augmented and virtual reality [AR & VR], collaborative robots, connected machine vision, drones / UAVs, self-driving vehicles [SDVs]).

Every connected industry building block and supporting technology is explored in-depth, and an Excel database of 350+ companies categorized by I4.0 offering is included with the enterprise version of the report.

Key findings from the report include 9 disruptive trends that have the potential to fundamentally change existing industrial network architectures, business models, and technology stacks. Three of the nine disruptive trends relate to the traditional 5-layer automation pyramid. One such trend is for I/O and PLC hardware to bypass the traditional automation pyramid and instead connect to the cloud either directly or via industrial gateways.

The Industry 4.0 market report also ranks and analyzes the 12 most popular I4.0 use cases, the largest of which is advanced digital product development.
