Global Demands on Electric Power Fuels SCADA Growth
The worldwide Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) market reflects the impact of new technology on SCADA components and cost effective communications for knowledge transfer. SCADA components are easier to integrate and provide vastly improved capabilities and functionalities, and communications are no longer limited. End users are utilizing SCADA technology for a range of operational improvement applications and linking these to business processes for a variety of purposes, both internal and external to the enterprise.

The underlying technology that facilitates traditional SCADA functionality has changed dramatically. Emerging technology is enabling SCADA to be tightly integrated to business processes, creating an improved value proposition. SCADA systems bring improved performance to geographically dispersed assets and provide a framework for real-time performance management on a regional, or even global, basis.

The SCADA market is among the most rapidly growing control systems markets in the world. Markets in mature and developed regions, including Western Europe and North America, are set to continue expanding over the next few years due to the increasing demand to modernize electric power infrastructures.

Strategic Issues
AConsidering that SCADA for electric utilities is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 8.9 percent over the next five years, there are numerous strategic initiatives that need to be adopted if SCADA is to be successful in this market.
In order to help their cause, suppliers must strategically address:

  • Enhance the SCADA system to deter cyber attacks
  • Get more involved with distributed SCADA
  • Prepare for energy integration
  • Develop migration roadmap solutions
  • Expand service capabilities
  • Establish a presence in Asia
