Manufacturers are offering services such as opportunity assessment, solution migration and improvement, product appraisal, Manufacturing Execution System application configuration, business analysis, and multi-level support services, which are expected to provide service segments with a high CAGR during the forecast period.

Insight by Deployment

Based on deployment, the manufacturing execution system market is segregated into on-premise, on-demand, and hybrid. The on-premise deployment of MES dominates the market as it is involved in various process industries such as oil & gas, pharmaceuticals & life sciences, chemicals, food & beverages, pulp & paper, etc. This is due to the fact that they provide manufacturers to manage the system within the premises and reduce time and cost, thus providing increased security and improving the productivity of processes.

However, the on-premise segment has observed a slowdown in 2020 as many enterprises have reduced their workforce but the maintenance of on-premise manufacturing execution systems requires trained staff who should be present on the shop floor. Thus, a hybrid model which requires minimum human intervention has helped manufacturers to get the maximum from the manufacturing execution system during the post-COVID-19 crisis.

Insight by Process Industry

Based on the process industry, the manufacturing execution system market is categorized into food & beverages, oil & gas, chemicals, pulp & paper, pharmaceutical & life sciences, energy & power, water & wastewater management, and others. The pharmaceutical industry is anticipated to contribute to the largest share as life science companies offer solutions that standardize the manufacturing processes across various sites located globally. Furthermore, the rising concern about counterfeit drugs which enter the supply chain has provided global track and trace regulations so as to protect patient safety and ensure product integrity. For instance, EU Falsified Medicine Directive (EUFMD), the US Drug Supply Chain Act (DSCSA), and other global regulations have allowed manufacturers to ensure compliance and provide innovative technologies to manage the administrative burden.

Insight by Discrete Industry

Based on the discrete industry. the global manufacturing execution system market is categorized into automotive, aerospace, medical devices, consumer packaged goods, and others (electronics & semiconductor, textile, solar & photovoltaic cells, printing & publishing, furniture & wood products). The automotive industry is the major user owing to the set of operations involved in cars’ production is complex.

Industry Dynamics

Industry Trends

With the rising adoption of Industry 4.0, AI, and IIoT in plants, the agility, and interoperability of manufacturing execution systems have become strategic so as to handle complex and future businesses are the key trends in the manufacturing execution system market.  

Growth Drivers

The growth of the manufacturing execution system (MES) market can be attributed to several factors that are driving its adoption in various industries. These factors include the increasing demand for automation in industrial sectors to minimize human errors, the rapid rate of industrialization, the growing trend towards paperless manufacturing automation for real-time visibility and error-proofing, the adoption of sustainable processes in the food industry, and the emergence of IT and operational technology.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, industries across different verticals are actively seeking ways to enhance the efficiency and productivity of their manufacturing processes. MES plays a crucial role in this regard by facilitating the seamless flow of information from the manufacturing floor to the entire company. This enables improved visibility of the manufacturing floor and allows for real-time control and adjustment.

As a result, MES effectively coordinates various aspects of production processes, logistics, system automation, sales, and planning. This comprehensive coordination capability provides a holistic view to different key stakeholders, ultimately helping end-users improve overall enterprise performance, compliance, and meet regulatory requirements. By leveraging the features of MES, industrial enterprises can optimize their operations and achieve greater efficiency in their manufacturing processes.


The increased costs for maintenance and installations, complex processes, and lack of awareness about the advantages of MES solutions among SMEs are the factors that may hamper the growth of the MES market.


The manufacturing execution system market provides opportunities like the need to eradicate expensive tailored extensions to commercial products, the convenience of off-shelf functionality in MES, a high degree of integration with other solutions, integration of solutions such as ERP and PLM, and penetration of IoT technology in manufacturing industries to market automation.

Geographic Overview

North America is expected to dominate during the forecast period owing to the rising adoption of manufacturing execution systems in process and discrete industries and the presence of industry players to develop MES solutions. However, the market has slowed down due to the COVID-19 crisis.
