The terminal automation market was valued at USD 3.82 Billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 5.21 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.15% between 2017 and 2022. The growing demand for environmentally cleaner fuels has resulted in the increased adoption of natural gas, which acts as a driving factor for the market.

The market has been segmented on the basis of offering, project type, vertical, and geography. On the basis of offering, the market has been classified into hardware, and software & services. Among all the segments, the market for software & services is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.  The major factor driving the growth of the software & services in the terminal automation market is the increasing demand for automating solutions to improve the operational efficiency of terminals and make them more efficient.

The terminal automation market, on the basis of project type, has been segmented into brownfield projects and greenfield projects. Among all the segments, the market for brownfield projects is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Traditional terminal infrastructure such as pipeline connections, tanker berths is already in existence. Therefore, the automation of such existing terminals would help to increase the number of brownfield projects.

The terminal automation market, on the basis of vertical, has been segmented into oil and gas, and chemical. The market for the chemical vertical is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period owing to the need for developing the potential of digital technologies for capitalization and value creation.

The terminal automation market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increase in the number of terminal automation projects in countries such as India, Malaysia, and the Philippines. For instance, Honeywell International Inc. (US) received a contract from Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (Vietnam) to provide professional consulting services and advice to the company and its subsidiaries for future investment projects. The general value chain of the terminal automation starts with R&D, which comprises planning and solution design, followed by hardware component providers, software solution providers, and system integrators. The system integrators integrate the basic hardware components such as programmable logic controllers, distributed control systems, alarms, switches, and cables.

However, the major restraint for the terminal automation market is the drop in the crude oil prices. The dependence on regulatory authorities for approval results in project delays acts a major challenge for the market.

Key players in this market focus on strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, agreements, new product launches, new technology launches, new solution launches, and expansions to increase their revenue. ABB Ltd. (Switzerland) is a leading player in the market, followed by Honeywell International, Inc. (US), Siemens AG (Germany), and Yokogawa Electric Corporation (Japan) in the terminal automation market. In 2014, ABB (Switzerland) signed an agreement with China Petrochemical Corporation (China) to provide a complete set of automation solutions and engineering services to Phase I of the China Petrochemical Corporation’s (China) Shale Gas Project in Jiaoshiba over the next 3 years.
