The major usage of DCS is to control industrial processes, such as electric power generation, oil and gas refineries, water and wastewater treatment, chemical, food & beverages, and automotive production. One of the major benefits of the DCS systems is that the digital communication between workstations, distributed controllers, and other computing elements follow peer-to-peer access principle. Various solutions, such as controlling & monitoring of production activities, intelligent command capabilities for enhanced and easy plant supervision and reduced human involvement are some of the major features making the adoption of DCS more attractive.
The rising interest in generating energy, based on renewable resources, and increased investment by organizations in infrastructure for catering to the competitive environment are acting as the major drivers for this market. The functionality of any system is improved by the remote access feature of DCS system, thus driving organizations for its adoption. The optimum utilization of man power, raw material and equipment can be achieved by adopting these solutions, thus reducing unnecessary costs. Emerging applications like batch management, asset management and efficient ways of power generation are providing great growth opportunities for this market. However, the investors are cautious due to the increasing cyber security concerns. This concern in cyber-attacks is restraining the market. Hence, solutions with the highest security and compliance features would be preferred.
In our study, the global DCS market is segmented by components, applications and geography. Regarding components, the market can be further segmented into hardware, software and solutions. The various applications can be sub-segmented into chemical, energy & power, healthcare, manufacturing, petrochemical, oil & gas and others. Oil & gas is expected to have a higher share, and the energy & power industry is expected to have the highest-growth rate due to rapid industrialization and growing interest in producing energy from renewable resources.
The geographical segmentation of the market includes Asia-Pacific, North America, Latin America, the Middle East & Africa and Europe. Due to the increasing manufacturing activities in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, the market is estimated to grow at a good pace in these regions. China is estimated to have the biggest market size regarding the revenue generated, through the installation of the DCS systems. The Chinese market has a substantial pharmaceutical presence and posts scalable opportunities for the local players to transform into global players and is expected to drive the DCS market in APAC. Also, Europe is expected to generate high revenues, due to the high rate of investments in the production facilities from Germany and France, among others.
