Industry 4.0 to Present Lucrative Opportunities
Growing significance of real time monitoring to carry out predictive maintenance and process analysis in the industrial sector has influenced use of SCADA systems. Additionally, proliferation of Industry 4.0 and its adoption in the manufacturing sector is driving the growth of SCADA system market. By using Industry 4.0, industrial processes can be streamlined with higher efficiency using automation. This eliminates human intervention and associated errors in manufacturing processes consequently improving productivity and output. Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and other cyber physical systems such as SCADA are involved in Industry 4.0 that facilitate remote monitoring of manufacturing processes.
Moreover, real time data that is gleaned by using SCADA system can be used to achieve process optimization. With SCADA, it becomes possible to predict future events based on the current real time data and historic analysis making it a crucial tool in the industrial sector. That said, it facilitates proper maintenance scheduling, production planning and prevents machine downtime. In this backdrop, increasing integration of SCADA in Industry 4.0 platform is expected to bolster growth of the market in the coming years.
RTU to Largely Contribute Towards Revenue Growth of the SCADA System Market
Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) component is expected to witness high demand as an effective tool for data collection, data coding in transmittable format and data transfer to main system. Its flexibility and versatility features have fuelled its adoption in the SCADA system market and is likely to significantly contribute towards market’s revenue share in the coming years. Moreover, RTUs offer improved communication across remote applications such as onshore oil and gas environment and freshwater reservoirs. In addition, development of iRTUs (Intelligent Remote Terminal Units) has further complemented market growth. iRTUs have the ability to communicate among each other, collaborate in cases of emergencies and also handle I/O correlations in order to prevent loss in less time. These aspects have fuelled demand for RTUs even in deep-sea extraction and exploration, in turn making them a cash cow in the SCADA system market.
North America Expected to Cement Dominance; Europe to Follow Suit
Developed countries in North America have been reflecting higher volume sales of SCADA systems and are expected to maintain status quo in the coming years. With regards to market revenue share, the region is expected to cement its dominance on the back of improved and reliable power management scenario. Moreover, growing investment in technology has resulted in research and upgradation in the areas of automation, in turn complementing growth of the market. Other factors such as stable growth in GDP, favourable infrastructure for technology deployment and increasing presence of major players involved in SCADA distribution continue to remain instrumental in driving demand for SCADA systems. In this backdrop, North America is expected to account for a major revenue share in the forthcoming years.
On the other hand, demand for SCADA system in Europe is also poised to witness a significant boost. This is mainly owing to increasing investments in smart grid projects and growing manufacturing sector. In addition, favourable government support in the region is expected to provide potential opportunities for SCADA system market. For instance, increasing investment by European Government in development of smart city projects is one such initiative which is expected to fuel demand for SCADA system. According to International Trade Administration, in 2020, German Government extended its investment by adding additional 500 million Euros for development of smart cities. This aspect is expected to drive demand for SCADA system in Europe making it a lucrative opportunistic region.
SCADA System Market: Competitive Landscape
Key players in the global SCADA system market are involved in different growth strategies such as collaborations, partnerships and new technology upgrades and launches. For instance, in 2020, Emerson Electric acquired Progea Group. Progea is a solution provider of SCADA technology, human machine interface and IIoT. Same year, Rockwell Automation acquired Avnet Data Security. Avnet is involved in cybersecurity services which can be leveraged in SCADA systems to protect against cyberthreats. Also, this acquisition will facilitate expansion of Rockwell’s Portfolio strengthening its market position. On the other hand, in 2020, Schneider Electric introduced ExoStructure Power, a new IoT platform that will facilitate digitization, process optimization and overall system reliability.
Few of the major players in the SCADA system market include General Electric, Schneider Electric SE, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Rockwell Automation, Emerson Electric, Honeywell and Omron Corporation.
