According to the new market research report "Smart Pneumatics Market by Component (Hardware, Software, and Services), Type (Valves, Actuators, and Modules), Industries (Automotive, Semiconductor, Food & Beverage, Water & Wastewater, Oil & Gas), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023", published by MarketsandMarkets™, the global Smart Pneumatics Market was valued at USD 3.3 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2018 to 2023.
The growth of this market can be attributed to the penetration of digitization and IIoT. The integration of IIoT enables companies to connect sensors used for monitoring parameters, such as vibration, temperature, and noise, to the Internet and monitor their pneumatic systems in real time. IIoT offers a single platform where companies can integrate all the data, and process them as required. Moreover, the use of IIoT for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance can help ensure high uptime of critical assets, particularly those that have random failure patterns. The increase in the adoption of IIoT presents an opportunity for the smart pneumatics market.

Smart Valves held largest share of smart pneumatics market in 2018
The smart pneumatics market, based on type, is led by the "smart pneumatic valves" segment (in terms of size). Smart valves incorporate sensors and other electronics to provide operational feedback to a controller. Beside energy efficiency, smart valves also promise enhanced connectivity. Condition monitoring provides useful feedback about valve functionality, and users can take action if a valve is not performing as intended. However, the real benefit of smart valves is that they enable predictive maintenance. These systems have witnessed significant adoption across food & beverages, automotive, semiconductor, and water and wastewater industries as they strive to reduce energy costs.
Market for automotive industry is likely to grow at higher CAGR during forecast period
