The manufacturing process involves multiple operations, industries are implementing various planning systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) or equivalent to decide what products are to be manufactured. After completion of the planning stage, manufacturers determine resources that are currently available in stock for execution of the manufacturing plan. The primary function of MES software includes integration of data or inputs from the planning system and information from plant floors to execute the production plan accordingly.
MES software application primarily provides manufacturers with schedule, planning, tracking, analyzing and control of the manufacturing operations. The market for manufacturing execution system is forecast to grow to US$ 18,067.9 Mn by 2025, recording a CAGR of 11.2% for the period 2017 to 2025.
Improved economic conditions globally have put pressure on manufacturing industries to increase effectiveness of production processes. This in turn is leading to increasing demand for automation within industries, aimed at optimizing production techniques and ensuring product quality. The global MES market is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period, attributed to demand for improving productivity and executing complex production processes efficiently. In addition, need for regulatory compliances in highly regulated industries such as food and beverages and pharmaceuticals is driving the demand for automation, which in turn is boosting the growth of the MES market across the globe. Moreover, demand for paperless operations from manufacturing industries in developing countries such as China, India and Brazil is further expected to drive the growth of MES market during the forecast period.
However, requirement of high initial investment for installation of manufacturing execution systems is a major restraint to the growth of global MES market. Moreover, complexities in installation of manufacturing execution systems is also inhibiting the growth of the market.
