However, most of the industrial units operate on a tight budget, especially for SMEs; therefore, there are limited re-investment opportunities, as profits are not very high. This is one of the major restrains for the growth of the market as not all production facilities can afford investment in automation and industrial control. Another challenge for companies in the market is the lack of trained professionals who can assist the implementation of automation processes. Companies are offering training programs and certifications to interested individuals to overcome this challenge.
