Machine building has long been essential to the growth and success of myriad markets, ranging from industrial manufacturing and material handling to agriculture, construction, oil and gas, water and wastewater, and transportation. Today, the continued evolution of Industry 4.0 is bolstering the machine building industry, encouraging OEMs to design and build or modernize heavy industrial and manufacturing equipment to satisfy customer demands for smarter, more flexible, higher efficiency and performance machines.

The global industrial machinery market was valued at more than $523 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 9.36% and grow to more than $895 billion by 2027. To remain competitive, machine builders must design equipment that supports a wider variety of product mixes, more rapid and frequent changeovers, IIoT connectivity, preventative maintenance, and quicker, simpler integration and is also safe, compliant, energy efficient, easy to use, reliable, and scalable. To control costs, they must harness innovative and cost-effective automation solutions.

RS helps machine builders overcome evolving market challenges, satisfy customer demands, control costs, and remain competitive by providing more than 48,000 in-stock products essential for building new equipment and retrofitting legacy equipment to improve modularity, scalability, safety, connectivity, compliance, sustainability, and ease of use.
