THE global IoT in manufacturing market is foretold to gain momentum while riding on constant development of new IoT solutions for the purpose of enabling more efficient and effective manufacturing procedures.

High adoption of innovative technologies in prime regions of the market could be another powerful factor working toward creating robust growth opportunities. IoT helps to provide real-time insights into manufacturing operations, accelerate inventory turns, reduce out-of-stock inventory and carrying costs, and improve product yield rates.

Bosch Software Innovations GmbH announced in April 2018 that it was investing US$120 mn in a new plant in Mexico’s Celaya. By 2020, the company plans to set up a new smart factory for electronic components in the city. The significance of the 2018 HANNOVER MESSE partner country for the firm is said to be underlined by this investment.

Management board member, Stefan Hartung said that the firm is committed to Mexico. For the near term, the goal would be to create an over 1,200 additional job opportunities in the city’s new location. Currently, there are close to a 16,000 associates employed by the Bosch Group, said a press release.

Demand for Centralized Monitoring of Manufacturing Infrastructure Creates Opportunities
