By End-user, the Process industries segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations) inventory refers to essential supplies, spare parts, and materials required for the upkeep of business operations. Unlike finished goods, these items do not directly contribute to the production of products for customers. MRO items encompass a diverse range of categories, including office supplies, cleaning supplies, motors, gearing, repair tools, personal protective equipment, and safety equipment. Manufacturing industries rely on a well-stocked inventory of components and tools to expedite machine repairs and maintain production lines. Retailers and service organizations, too, necessitate a steady supply of basic items, such as light bulbs, cleaning supplies, and office supplies, to ensure their day-to-day operations run smoothly.

By Type, MRO items  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the realm of process industries, sectors such as energy and power, water and wastewater, and oil and gas represent significant markets for automation solutions.
