DEDHAM, MA, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2021 / — New ARC Advisory Group research on the total process automation market finds that while the COVID-19 pandemic will depress short-term growth, the long-term outlook remains positive for capital investments in both automation hardware and software products for the process industries. This is due to the underlying macro trends, including globalization, infrastructure expansion, an aging installed base of automation equipment, manufacturing labor shortages, digitalization, and the ongoing need to improve production and process controllability and reduce energy consumption and emissions.
