Automation is used by companies to save labour costs, materials and energy to improve the quality and precision of any process. Automation process is a setup of several control systems used to operate equipment in various processes such as boilers and heat treating ovens, aircraft control, steering and stabilization of ships, machinery, switching on telephone networks and other applications without much human intervention.
Internet of Things (IoT) and its integration with modern industrial automation control is an emerging trend in the automation market. Growing demand for smart factories and construction of large infrastructure projects are expected to drive the automation market growth. Various types of automation products include Distributed Control System (DCS), Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Advanced Process Control (APC). The DCS segment holds the largest part of the market share.
Advanced Process Control (APC) is used to optimize the production process without declining the quality of the product. The various benefits of a process control are improved production capacity, faster modification of the process as per changing requirements, reduction in power consumption, predictive maintenance, improved monitoring of process parameters, and improved process safety. The global process control market is segmented into inferential control, sequential control, compressor control, multivariable model predictive control and advanced regulatory control.
The global process control market is driven by development of infrastructure, IT and hardware services. In addition, a need to reduce emissions & operational cost and increased operational flexibility & reliability are some other factors driving the process control market. The only challenge faced by the market is reluctance to use new process controllers due to lack of proper knowledge.
