Automation and Software Expenditures for Process Industries

This Automation and Software Expenditures for the Process Industries Market Research Study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast.

​Automation and Software Expenditures Market Returns to Growth Track

The global process automation market saw strong growth during 2018, after a couple of years of tepid growth in the wake of the oil price collapse earlier in the decade.  An uptick in deferred MRO activities accounted for much of this growth as process manufacturers finally pulled the trigger on several maintenance and upgrade projects that had been deferred during the downturn.  Despite the recent return to growth in both major global economies and key commodity prices, major end users continue to feel a sense of uncertainty as they navigate the ongoing trade war, and producers are ramping up production in response to rising commodity prices.

Key issues facing suppliers and users include the more widespread adoption of the Industrial IoT, convergence of the information technology and operational technology realms, and the emergence of open systems initiatives.

These technological changes in how plants connect and automate their production assets are taking place against a backdrop of ever-present structural requirements in the major process industries to maintain and optimize asset and process performance, complicated by dwindling personnel levels and well-entrenched risk-averse mindsets among many users.
