The nano PLC market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022 owing to its lower cost, greater flexibility, and compact size.

The market for the hardware segment accounted for the largest share of the micro and nano PLC market in 2015. The technological advancement in hardware components and the increasing number of new product launches and developments would increase the adoption of hardware across industries such as automotive, food & beverages, oil & gas, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, among others. The market for software and services is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. The increasing level of automation at industrial plants has created the need for software to save time in the design of automated control applications and increase the level of safety while handling the equipment.

The modular PLC architecture is expected to hold the largest market size and grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.

Modular PLCs are widely used in complex processes. They are easier to troubleshoot and allow some processes to be operational while the issues are being fixed. Furthermore, modular PLCs are designed to customize industrial processes for seamless operations. The fixed PLC market is the second-largest in the global micro and nano PLC market. Fixed PLC is inexpensive compared to modular PLC and is an ideal solution for compact machineries with limited space and functionality.

The automotive industry dominated the micro and nano PLC market in 2016. The highly competitive automotive sector is one of the early adopters of micro and nano PLCs. The use of micro and nano PLCs helps the industry to save time during assembling, resulting in increased productivity. The market for the food & beverages industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. The players in the food & beverages industry are majorly focusing on offering technologically advanced and high-quality products while keeping the production costs low. Thus, there is a growing demand for micro and nano PLCs in the food & beverages industry.

Micro and Nano PLC Market

North America accounted for the largest share of the micro and nano PLC market during forecast period. The automation and servicing requirements are shaping the demand for micro and nano PLCs among process industries in this region. Further, supportive government programs, events, and conferences are also driving the growth of the North American market. APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing market in the overall micro and nano PLC market during the forecast period. The major driving factors for the growth of the APAC market are increased number of manufacturing facilities, aging infrastructure, and trend of smart manufacturing.

One of the key restraining factors for the micro and nano PLC market is the additional cost incurred while expanding the I/O capability of micro and nano PLC. The I/O points of micro and nano PLCs are lesser than that of large and medium-sized PLCs.  In certain applications, there is a need to expand the number of I/O modules of PLC to accomplish the complex processes which leads to additional cost.
