The MES market is growing with the adoption of cloud computing and data analytics in distinct industry applications around the world, with continued growth likely as companies focus on improving productivity and process efficiencies.
Manufacturing execution systems (MES) are providing companies with the means to plan, schedule, track, direct, and implement their operations.
According to Krishna Raman, industry manager for Industrial Automation and Process Control at Frost Sullivan, the smart, disruptive software technologies, such as IIoT, new analytical tools, and shifting market dynamics will drive the implementation of MES across industry verticals in the coming years. “The challenges of tight government regulations and cybersecurity, along with greenfield projects in developing countries, create ample opportunities for growth,” he said.
