Distributed Control Systems for India

This report provides an in-depth analysis of India’s distributed control systems (DCS) business.  The report can serve as an effective planning guide for companies interested in purchasing DCSs and/or providing DCSs to India’s marketplace.  The report is specifically prepared to provide strategic information to industry executives responsible for planning, marketing, and developing their company's DCS business, as well as for technical, purchasing, and business executives in DCS end user companies.

Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 Driving the Distributed Control Systems Market in India

Industry 4.0, the influential German initiative, is gaining traction in industry.  Industry 4.0 can be described as a set of new technologies that fuse the physical, digital, and biological worlds – impacting all disciplines, economies, and industries.  The platform aims to promote digital structural change and provide the consistent and reliable framework necessary for this.  The more networked the economy becomes, the more cooperation, participation, and coordination of all stakeholders are needed.  This initiative, and the many others like it, will help drive growth in digital positioner investments for years to come.

Distributed Control Systems for India Market Strategic Issues

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the DCS India market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue: Ongoing Economic Uncertainty

DCS growth depends heavily on demand from the heavy process industries, which in turn depend heavily on consumer demand.  The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced demand for many products, especially transportation fuels and chemicals.  Depressed commodity prices (especially for crude oil, refined products, and petrochemicals) inhibits further investment in these areas.

Strategic Issue: Pricing Pressures

As manufacturers continue to place increasing scrutiny on capital expenditures, many are placing increasing pricing pressure on their DCS suppliers.  This negatively impacts the revenues generated from new DCS projects as more manufacturers look for larger discounts.  Pricing pressures are particularly evident in greenfield projects where the competition is especially intense.  The growing importance of price-sensitive markets, such as China and India, further drives down DCS hardware prices for multinational suppliers.  Many suppliers opt to compete for new business at very low margins, betting that multi-year service, upgrade, and support revenue stream will provide additional returns at higher margins.

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: Intense Competition among Suppliers

In the current DCS market, demand for certain features and parameters that make the DCS more innovative is increasing.  Users are looking for higher level of automation, redundancy and reliability requirement, network security and stability, and software periodicity and update requirements. 
Handful of suppliers offer these capabilities, thus leading to intense competition among established players.  All the above increase investment and expenditure in innovation and development, while the cost of DCS is reducing.  There may not be adequate return or margin on such innovation for suppliers, which is a major challenge for them.
