Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

In The News

  •  Rockwell Automation, Inc. announced the acquisition of Cubic, a lead producer of modular systems for building electric panels. With the help of this acquisition, customers will be benefitted from the production of smart data that in turn will boost sustainability and productivity and the merger is likely to offer more plant-wide applications for smart motor control.

Global Electric Control Panel Market Definition

The electric control unit is a small appliance installed in an electronic machine that uses electrical energy to surveil and operate the various functions of the mechanical equipment. It is an aggregated cabinet, that transmits the different levels of energy to different parts of the equipment. The component aggregation in electric control unit varies with different types of industries and can be customized according to needs.

A typical electric control unit consists of electric components and a panel enclosure. The various other components are switchgear, controllers, relays, lamps, push buttons and PLCs. ECU is either open or enclosed and sometimes it is a combination of both. Each electric control unit system has specific chips that use power and data to function and control the running of firmware and software.  Control panels are of different type that is used to serve different purposes, for instance, distribution panels provide switching between high and low voltage, phase imbalance, phase reversal, constrained earth fault, and others.

A wide range of industries has the application of electric control units, including manufacturing, automotive, oil & gas, supply chain management, energy and power, and others. ECU is sued in various industrial equipment, such as motors, pumps, lighting, machinery, heaters, engines, and others. Electric control panels are weatherproof, so there is no risk of rust or changing weather, therefore can be installed in both outdoors and indoors. Moreover, there is zero chance of electrical shocks or fire outbreaks thanks to the hazard-proof nature of electrical control panels.
