Industrial Control for Process Automation Market Overview:

The global industrial control for process automation market was valued at about USD 105 billion in 2021 and is predicted to succeed in USD 165.44 billion by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of around 9% over the forecast period 2021 – 2026.

The advent of technology in the past few years has enabled the coupling of mechanical devices with computer-based systems, allowing the latter to work and control production. This has resulted within the development of automated equipment, capable of generating significantly higher production rates, effortless monitoring, and reduced wastage over traditional machines.

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial 4.0 are dominating trends within the industrial sector, with machinery and devices being connected via the web. The amount of IoT connected devices rose to 20.35 billion in 2017 from 15.41 billion in 2015 and is predicted to succeed in 51.11 billion by 2023, given the massive push from the investment of the technology providers through continuous research and development. To work these increasing numbers of connected devices and machine-to-machine connections within the manufacturing industry, the necessity for control and supervision is predicted to become more prominent, which will promote the rise of network-connected and controlled devices and systems.

Industrial Control for Process Automation Market Recent Developments:

SIMATIC PCS 7 version 9 comprehensively supports PROFINET, which provides the prerequisites for persuasive, plant-wide communication in real-time, which is indispensable within the era of massive data. Also, it is considered as a key to the end-to-end diagnostics, monitoring, and evaluation of process-relevant information. PROFINET also allows you to create flexible and only scalable network structures. There are further advantages: cost savings across the whole flower cycle because your wiring costs are such a lot lower, and since freely scalable redundancy allows you to set your plant availability individually.

ABB Ability™ System 800xA is not only a DCS (Distributed system) but also an Electrical Control System, a security system and a collaboration enabler with the capacity to enhance engineering efficiency, operator performance, and asset utilization.

Canadian Forest Products Ltd. implemented DeltaV Predict advanced control, a part of the DeltaV™ digital process automation from Emersonat its Northwood pulp mill in Prince George, British Columbia. The upgraded controls were installed to enhance control and lower operating costs by reducing fuel consumption and variability on one of two lime kiln process units.

Drivers and Restraints of Industrial Control for Process Automation Market:


The primary factor driving the expansion of the global industrial control for process automation market is the increasing utilization of enabling technologies in manufacturing, rising adoption of commercial robots within the manufacturing sector driven by collaborative robots, connected enterprise alongside production to cater to increasing population, and government initiatives toward the adoption of industrial automation in various enterprises.
