'Distributed Control Systems (DCS) Market by Component Type (Hardware, Software and Services), Industry Verticals (Chemical, Oil & Gas, Pharmaceutical, Food & Berverage & Power Generation) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014 - 2022'

The emerging process industries are merely operated by advanced automation technologies such as distributed control systems (DCS). These systems are used as an extension of traditional controllers across the diversified range of industries. The main concept of DCS application is derived by the idea of decentralizing the control unit and establishing a common network between the engineering stations. In addition, integrating DCS with process plants enables it to control, report, and monitor the components individually, while providing flexibility and simplicity to the plant operations. DCS uses a set of configuration tools to manage the database, graphics, control logic, and system security. Moreover, it supports modification, upgrade, and integration to the existing architecture of any industry.

A DCS platform is configured with the application that neglects the complete plant breakdown, improves process quality, creates high reserves, and reduces time and cost of the operations. It also has the ability to integrate system security models with advanced alarm capabilities, cybersecurity, multiple simulation solutions, and system-wide diagnostics.

The DCS market is driven by factors such as spontaneous response, reduced disruptions to production, and increased efficiency across the process industries; however, slowdown of mining industry is expected to restrict the market growth to some extent.
