With stringent laws governing the safety of human personnel and efforts to minimize the cost of damage to plant and environment, many end users are giving machine safety prime importance in their projects and operations. Various devices provide cost savings and benefits with increased efficiency and effective productivity. Some of the major safety devices include presence sensing safety devices such as sensors, safety modules such as controllers and relays, safety interlock switches, and safety PLCs. These machine safety devices are updated as per the safety standard norms of ISO and IEC. Adoption of new standards EN ISO 13849 and EN 62061 as per the machinery directives, major end users and industrial application have initialized the process to upgrade to the new safety devices as per these new standards.

The different products offered by the machine safety include: Sensors, types of Switches such as Limit Switches, Non Contact Switches, Safety Foot Switches, Cable Pull Switches, Hinged Safety Switches, Interlocks, Relays and Controllers such as PLC, Motion Controllers, CNC, Electronic Devices, Enabling Devices, Emergency Stop Devices and Others Safety Mats, Safety Edges; Safety Light Curtains and Grids. Competition does exist among these product technologies and the replacement of one over the other is to expected.

The different industrial users include automotive, food & beverages, semiconductor & electronics, pharmaceutical and machine tool builders. The factors that add to the success of technologies include availability/ delivery, controlling cost to achieve competitive pricing, high quality and reliable products, product innovation and customer after sales service.

In the aspect of geographical markets, the machine safety market is further driven by regional industrial and related activities and automotive production. Developed economies such as the U.S. and Germany currently form the major shareholders in the revenue of this devices, but the revenue is expected to increase rapidly over the years to come with the focus on globalization and fast growing economies of developing nations such as China, India, and Brazil. The EU is the maximum revenue contributing to machine safety market, where the achieved market penetration is the highest.
