An expansive U.S. economy and six months of overall manufacturing growth are generating optimism for the automation industry, according to the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA). Automation has benefited from strength in manufacturing production and capacity utilization in 2013, and the reshoring of manufacturing and inexpensive natural gas are expected to extend that momentum into 2014. According to CSIA, automation is also driving increased productivity as industry clients have improved manufacturing within their existing facilities, and CSIA members expect the trend toward rebuilding and replacing older control systems to continue.
