The original equipment manufacturing (OEM) market for industrial manufacturers represents over $350 billion in annual sales. From makers of packaging machines to oilfield equipment, these companies are a unique market in that many of them don’t use much automation technology—but, according to surveys by the Freedonia Group, they purchase more than 60% of all industrial controls deployed in industry, a percentage that continues to grow relative to the maintenance/repair/operations (MRO) portion of the machine automation market.
