Market Definition:

The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Market size was valued at USD 12.52 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 22.17 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 6.0% from 2022-2030.

PLC is a type of specialized microprocessor-based controller that continuously monitors the state of input devices and makes decisions based upon a custom program to control the state of output devices. It controls and improves its operation independently without any human supervision. It can store instructions, and execute functions like logics, counting, timing and sequencing to control machines and process. It consists of three major components such as processor, power supply, and the input/output section. Also, popular languages used in the PLC programming are sequential function chart, functional block diagrams, and ladder diagram among others.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

The demand for programmable logic controller is increasing due to its rising demand in renewable power generation sector. Also, factors such as technological advancements in manufacturing industry and growing need for customized and miniaturized PLCs, are expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. Moreover, increased demand in the automotive industry due to rising requirement for advanced levels of automation in the production process will continue to drive the market growth to a significant extent.

However, difficulty related to component replacements, and increased complexity of industrial control software are expected to restrain the growth of market during the forecast period.
