Introduction of autonomous technology by various enterprises

Autonomous robots are being used in various industries such as manufacturing, automobile, and others, in order to increase efficiency and productivity. Organizations are frequently introducing autonomous cars and drones in the global market. Autonomous drones for the military are being accepted as a replacement for fighter planes. Enterprises are collaborating with the automation industry to produce better autonomous vehicles. For instance, in January 2023, Hyundai Motor Group's Supernal collaborates with Microsoft to advance critical technology for Advanced Air Mobility

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

COVID-19 has a large effect that can be felt all around the world. The epidemic is having the most impact on markets in Asia, North America, and Europe. The virus spread quickly around Europe, and as a result of the lockdown, production activities there were negatively impacted. During the initial stages of the pandemic, several industries faced disruptions in production, supply chain, and workforce availability due to lockdowns and social distancing measures. This situation likely affected the adoption and implementation of smart machines across various sectors. Companies may have delayed or scaled down their investments in automation and smart technologies to prioritize immediate survival and cost-cutting measures. The development and deployment of AI and smart machines might have been affected by research disruptions, supply chain challenges for hardware components, and delays in technology upgrades due to global restrictions. However, it is also possible that the pandemic prompted increased research and innovation in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence, leading to advancements in smart machines and their applications.


Certain performing issues with self-learning machines

Smart machines are built to learn from their mistakes though it requires special training to implement this mechanism. If smart machines cannot recognize their mistakes and rectify them and rather learn the wrong things, it could lead to severe problems for the end user. For instance, Microsoft Corporation launched a chat bot on Twitter, with the name Tay. Although Tay was created for casual and fun chatting, its self-learning algorithm started causing malfunctioning in it. In fact, it started picking up people’s opinions and learning from them and was soon posting inappropriate comments on Twitter. Hence, such factors are expected to hinder the market growth in the near future.

Global Smart Machines Market Trends:

Paradigm shift from individual devices to synced devices

Currently, customers are focused on more connectivity, especially in the case of wearable and hand-held gadgets. Syncing of smartphones, tablets, cars, and wearable devices leads to generation of vast amounts of data (big data). Hence, this big data creates enormous opportunities for various enterprises to improve their business processes. For instance, tech giants such as Apple Inc. are introducing better accessibility to their customers by connecting all devices. Moreover, this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

IoT integration:

Innovative concepts such as smart cities can be implemented with the use of the Internet of Everything (IoE), which helps to enhance the work environment and productivity in the commercial sectors. IoT enables smart machines to connect and communicate with each other, as well as with other devices and systems, creating a network of interconnected devices. This connectivity allows for real-time data collection, analysis, and decision-making. For example, in a smart factory, machines can communicate with each other and adjust their operations based on the production demand and supply chain requirements. The integration of smart machines with IoT is driving the concept of Industry 4.0, where interconnected systems optimize efficiency and productivity.
