Advanced process control (APC) refers to a set of sophisticated technologies and model-based software that is implemented in various industries for maximizing operational efficiency. It includes digital control units and online sensors, which aids in enhancing production capacity and equipment reliability, automating data collection, and monitoring process parameters while consuming minimal energy. This, in turn, assists enterprises in optimizing manufacturing operations, solving multivariable control problems, reducing disruption, catering process control system requirements, and improving productivity. At present, APC is commercially available in varying types, such as advanced regulatory control (ARC), multivariable model predictive control (MPC), and nonlinear MPC.

Advanced Process Control Market Trends:
The widespread adoption of advanced process control across the petrochemicals, chemical, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, food and beverage (F&B), and paper and pulp industries can be attributed to the increasing need for efficient automation solutions. Advanced process control eliminates the involvement of humans in production processes, thereby reducing the risks of accidents and enhancing safety. Additionally, rising concerns regarding industry-generated emissions, especially from oil and gas, have prompted governments of various countries to introduce policies that promote the use of advanced process control. This, in turn, helps in minimizing the operational costs, capital expenditure, and negative environmental impact, which is further propelling the market growth. In line with this, significant technological advancements and the integration of process analytical technology (PAT) for equipping workers with offline and online model building, verification, and data analysis tools to enable the precise performance of industry-related tasks are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Moreover, the extensive utilization of APC for allowing instant modification in the production operations is contributing to the market growth. Other factors, such as strategic collaborations amongst the key players and the rising investments in the research and development (R&D) activities for introducing energy-efficient process controlling systems, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
