The continuous process segment of the DCS market, by application, is estimated to dominate the market and grow at the highest CAGR. The increased production of chemicals, use in the nuclear and renewable sectors in the power generation industry, and need for process control in new refineries will drive the continuous process segment.

By End-use industry, the power generation segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment

The power generation segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment of the DCS market, by end-use industry, from 2020 to 2027. DCS are used to control various power generation processes such as boiler side valves, fans, turbines valves, and boiler coal firing. Retrofit and modernization projects in Europe and North America are expected to contribute to the growth of the power generation market. The base year considered for company profiles is 2019. Whenever information was unavailable for the base year, the prior year has been considered.

Asia Pacific to account for the largest market size and fastest growing market during the forecast period.

The DCS market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the fastest rate from 2020 to 2027. Rapid economic growth in the region would lead to an increase in the demand for power. The increased investment in the power generation sector to meet the industrial and residential demand for electricity will boost the demand for DCS in the region.

Critical questions the report answers:

  • Where will all these developments take the industry in the long term?
  • What are the upcoming trends for the distributed control system market?
  • Which segment provides the most opportunity for growth?
  • Who are the leading manufacturers operating in this market?
  • What are the opportunities for new market entrants?

Progression of power and energy sector

Growing population is creating huge demand of power and energy to support sustainable developments and low carbon future. Power plants use various automation technologies to generate electricity efficiently, where in the application of DCS in mega power plants enables the operators to control and monitor the operations precisely. It also equips them with centralised management facility. For instance, Hong Kong a majestic city known for its contribution in delivering the best electricity supply system in the global. The city is planning various strategies to deal with its 43 terawatt-hours power requirements. To address this the city is developing many wind and solar power plants there by creating a great opportunity for distributed control systems applications.

Perceptible amount of reduction in cost and time

The process industries are very dynamic towards adaption of latest automation technologies. DCS consists of various digital devices equipped with smart components which helps to enhance the performance of the plant with reduced time consumption. These smart components help to improve productivity. The use of network systems in DCS supports the troubleshooting in a stress free and rapid way. This in turn saves plenty of time while reducing the cost. Further, DCS is made up of digital electronic devices that uses smart technologies and there is a noticeable amount of decrease in the price of digital devices which in turn decreases the cost of ownership of DCS that includes manufacturing and initial purchase cost along with the service costs.

Stagnant development in oil and gas sector

Oil and gas industry contains mega infrastructures. This industry faces the highest impact of regulations, emerging economies, interest rates and most importantly fluctuating oil and gas price globally. Due to the unstable energy policies across the global hinders the development in this sector. The risk associated with the industry restricts the big investment and innovation in oil and gas industry.
