Siemens is the world's largest industrial automation company; its automation business covers factory automation equipment and process automation equipment, its service areas include energy, industry, construction and health care industries.

Although annual report shows that net income of Siemens has increased in FY2013, its industrial automation business performance was not satisfactory, the revenue from which is declining year after year due to weak demand and rising costs.
