Automation and Software Expenditures for Process Industries

Publish Date

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 Embracing Change, Slowly

ARC Advisory Group’s global market research report on automation and software expenditures in the process industries tracks and analyzes factors and trends that influence supplier decisions.  Low oil prices, combined with heavy cuts in capital spending, had a significant impact on automation market revenue growth in 2016.  A slowly recovering oil market will have implications for the process automation market as a whole, and ARC expects automation shipments to grow again, albeit more slowly than in recent years.

Key issues facing suppliers and users include the more widespread adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), convergence of the IT and OT 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.
