The global Distributed Control System (DCS) market is expected to reach USD 19.82 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 4.91% from 2015 to 2020. Distributed control systems are helping end-users to address complex process automation challenges effectively. The use of DCS enables better control and monitoring of operations in end-use industries such as oil & gas, power generation, food & beverage, and so on. The global DCS market has been segmented on the basis of application, component, end-use industries, and region. In the DCS market, by application, the continuous process segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period, driven by the demand from oil & gas, water & wastewater treatment, chemicals, and oil & gas end-use industries.

The years considered for the study are:

Historical year – 2013
Base Year – 2014
Estimated Year – 2015
Projected Year – 2020
Forecast Period – 2015 to 2020

Research Methodology

The DCS market valuation for various segments has been arrived by using DCS implementations in various regions and planned investments of operators and service providers. Finally, the global values have been arrived at by consolidation of markets for individual regions. Industry experts have also been contacted for validating the key findings of the report, in order to estimate the market appropriately. The individual responses and the viewpoints have been carefully studied and incorporated in the report. The market numbers have also been validated by top-down and bottom-up estimation approaches. In the top-down approach, regional and segmental markets have been derived from the parent market, considering the share of the segments. On the other hand, the in bottom-up approach, individual segment/regional market has been added to get the final parent market.

The figure below shows the breakdown of the primaries on the basis of company, designation, and region, conducted during the research study.

Distributed Control System Market

Distributed Control System Market

The DCS market caters to various stakeholders such as DCS manufacturers & suppliers and end-use industries such as energy & power, chemical, and process industries. Equipment providers are suppliers of hardware and software components required for a DCS implementation. Solution providers are players that offer complete DCS implementation in the facilities. Their scope of work typically encompasses engineering, installation and commissioning of distributed control systems into the process. System integrators include consultants and in-house experts who offer their expertise and facilitate DCS execution. The primary difference between a solution provider and a system integrator is that the latter does not provide any hardware or software products but only consultation and subject matter expertise. The solution providers for DCS include major players such as ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), Siemens AG (Germany), Honeywell International Inc. (U.S.), Yokogawa Electric Corporation (Japan), and Emerson Electric Co. (U.S.).

The Distributed Control System (DCS) market is expected to reach USD 19.82 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 4.91% from 2015 to 2020. The growth of the market is attributed to the booming power sector & augmented power generation capacities around the world and expanding industrial infrastructure in emerging markets such as the Middle East & Africa. Investments for conventional power generation in the Middle East countries such as Egypt, Oman and renewable power generation investments in Asia-Pacific and African countries such as China and South Africa have been planned to quell the increasing power demand. These investments in turn are going to boost the demand for DCS.

Among the various applications for which DCS solutions are employed, the continuous process industry segment is expected to be the largest market. This segment is also expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to rapid growth of power generation and chemicals end-use industries. Meanwhile, developing economies in Asia-Pacific and South America comprise fast growth markets for the continuous process industry segment.

Software is the largest segment among the components offered as part of DCS solutions. The software market is expected to have the highest growth from 2015 to 2020, owing to increasing demand of upgradation of existing software in distributed control systems with latest versions and technologies. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing software market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market for DCS during the forecast period. The market is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR from 2015 to 2020. There has been a steady rise in the demand for power, as a result of which, substantial investments has been made, especially in the developing economies in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa to augment power generation capacities. This scenario is expected to further boost the demand for DCS. Asia-Pacific has some of the major companies including Yokogawa Electric Corporation (Japan), Azbil Corporation (Japan), and Toshiba International Corporation Pty Ltd. (Australia).

Distributed Control System Market

Off-late, there has been a stagnant growth in global upstream oil & gas industry, owing to decrease in exploration and production activities. Declining oil prices because of an oversupplied market has led to a decrease in exploration & production activities. The focus for industrial growth in countries dependent on oil export is gradually shifting towards other industries, as they are aiming for a diversified revenue stream. Steady increase in energy generation using renewable and alternative sources has also controlled oil production. The oil & gas industry holds a major share of the DCS market. Hence, stagnant growth in this industry is expected to slow the demand for DCS.
