Machine safety industry has been witnessing a massive transformation since the past couple of years. Strong impetus from the government regulations and concerns of safety of both, machine and man, has become of prime importance in the industrial sector. Machine Safety is very crucial when dealing with process facilities and plants, environment, and people. They play a vital role in safeguarding the machines in various industrial applications. The functional safety has evolved from traditional mechanical interlock switches to programmable safety PLCs technologies over the years.

With the electronic and semiconductor industries’ efforts to scale down the average price of basic chips and circuits, it is also possible that the current safety integrated PLCs machine safety technologies may become affordable.  Many MNCs involved in different sectors of industrial activities such as pharmaceutical, food & beverages, engineering, manufacturing, mining, and automotive have setup subsidiaries across different geographical regions. These MNCs, include the safety systems and standards, in the plant setup and the machines and assembly setup, while constructing the factory or the subsidiary plant. These safety systems are synonymous to existing standards implemented at the headquarters/home country of the MNC. This process of adopting standards irrespective of non-presence of any government regulated safety directives is driving the machine safety business among the machine safety manufacturers.

The machine safety report is analyzed and detailed as follows:

Scope of the report

The segmentation of the global machine safety market revolves around four major parameters. These parameters are: components, applications, verticals, and geography.

The machine safety technology is the process of safeguarding different machines, plants and human beings in contact with the machine and those operating on the machines. With safety being mandatory and stringent laws governing safety of human personnel and minimizing the cost of damage to plant and environment, many end users are giving machine safety prime importance into their projects and operations, considering the benefits it offers with safety being the prominent one.  The different devices provide cost savings and benefits with increased efficiency and effective productivity. Prime reason for increase in the adoption of this technology in different regions includes reach of safety manufacturers and awareness about safety standards. Some of the major safety devices include presence sensing safety devices such as sensors, safety modules such as controllers and relays, safety interlock switches, and safety PLCs. These devices are updated as per the safety standard norms of ISO and IEC. Adoption of new standards EN ISO 13849 and EN 62061 as per the machinery directives, major end users and industrial application have initialized the process to upgrade to the new safety devices as per these new standards.
