Forecast Report on Global Process Automation and Instrumentation Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Process Automation and Instrumentation Market by Types, Technology, Application and by Geography - Analysis & Global Forecasts to 2013 - 2020" report to their offering.

The process automation and instrumentation is very important as it increases sustainability in terms of resource efficiency and energy cost. It allows flexible manufacturing and better asset management. Major technologies covered under it are DCS, PLC, SCADA, and MES. On the other hand, process instrumentation includes instrumentation like flow transmitter, temperature transmitter, pressure transmitter, level transmitter and control valves.

The process automation is a revolutionary taxonomy of various technologies like SCADA, PLC, DCS, and MES, which include field instruments and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technology, among others. The process automation solutions optimize the productivity and efficiency of the various stages of production, under various verticals like wastewater treatment, pharmaceutical, oil & gas extraction and petrochemicals, among others.

The service market has emerged as the most prolific domain in churning out the market revenues for the process automation market, with an augmented segment of the end-users, preferring the maintenance and outsourcing services instead of the in-house purchase and the subsequent maintenance.

The major driving factors for the process automation market, which are expected to pay rich dividends in the coming years, include the need for energy efficiency, government incentive schemes for the manufacturing industry, and the upsurge in the labor charges.

The market has been segmented as discussed below:

Market by technology: The process automation market by technology includes SCADA, PLC, DCS, MES and others.

Market by component; The component segment divided into hardware, software and services. The hardware part is sub-segmented into controllers, switches, RTU, HMI, I/O cards.
