This research study provides key trends and predictions for the global distribution control systems (DCS) market. A DCS can range from a single controller and operator workstation to large systems incorporating multiple controllers and workstations. In general, a DCS has multiple controllers that interact with one another by sharing a common network/database to control input/output (I/O) devices. The DCS market experienced a slow growth in 2018 as a result of the weak investment climate. This research service analyzes trends across global regions, revenue types, size (number of I/O points), end-user industries and distribution channels, and provides forecast for the DCS market for the period 2018-2025. In the era of technology convergence driving disruption, the focus has shifted from hardware to software. Complementary business models of products and solutions are driving the business case for the DCS market. As end users look to integrate control data with business systems, there needs to be a common information architecture that helps them realize the single version of the truth in real time.

End-user industries enter an era of radical transformation where the promise of new levels of agility, flexibility, and actionable knowledge through the convergence of operational technologies and new information technologies appears to raise the expectations of manufacturing executives around the globe. DCS systems are evolving to be open, secure and interoperable, thereby enabling end users to overcome the challenge of a single vendor lock-in. The increasing information technology-operational technology (IT-OT) convergence in the automation market has blurred the lines between IT and OT technologies. This complicates the connection between the network infrastructure of the DCS and the plants IT systems. In such a scenario, end users are expected to rely highly on the expertise of automation service providers to set up the control system networks efficiently and securely, driving the DCS market revenues in the services segment.

Process industry professionals are under constant pressure to find new opportunities to enhance productivity and reduce operational costs. These demands cannot be satisfied with the existing control technologies, as the aging DCS limits integration of new capabilities to the control system. With a tremendous increase in the DCS installed base, there is a growing need for the aftermarket portfolio and value-added services such as system upgrades, cybersecurity, consulting, and optimization of lifecycle costs. With the increase in population and urbanization in emerging regions such as China, India, and Brazil, there is a growing need for DCS in end-user industries such as water & waste water, food & beverage, and pharmaceuticals. This study captures the impact of trends that are expected to transpire over the upcoming years as organizations shift to prepare for the future.

The DCS market is set for a paradigm shift due to the digitalization in end-user industries, and the study also analyzes the impact of the shift on the market during the forecast period. This DCS study further provides a detailed analysis of the key market participants. It offers an in-depth analysis of the DCS market revenue by different regions and revenue segments. A detailed overview of market share and competitive analysis for geographical regions, industry verticals, system size, and revenue segments is also provided.
