ARC Announces New Distributed Control Systems Market Research

ARC Advisory Group has just completed fresh market analysis and associated research on the worldwide market for Distributed Control Systems (DCS).  This ARC market research explores current and historical market performance and related technology and business trends, identifies leading suppliers, and provides five-year global forecasts for the distributed control systems market.  This new research is based on ARC’s industry-leading market research database, extensive primary and secondary research, and proprietary economic modeling techniques.  The research includes competitive analysis; five-year market forecasts by region, industry, hardware, software and services, sales channels, end customers, and more.  A new segmentation for new projects versus modernization and expansion projects is also included. 

This year’s report also includes a comprehensive discussion on current qualitative trends in the evolution of the DCS.  This includes the impact of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) on DCSs and the potential impact of recent end user initiatives to move to more open and interoperable process automation platforms. 

David Clayton, Research Director, ARC Advisory Group and principal author of ARC’s Distributed Control Systems Global Market Research study says, “Over the past several years the DCS market has undergone changes that signal the end of the largely proprietary, monolithic DCS as it has traditionally been known in the market.  While the nature of the physical I/O, control networks, and field net-works is changing, other technologies like the Internet of Things are pushing change even faster.” 

This new research is available in a variety of formats to meet the specific research and budgetary requirements of a wide variety of organizations.  These include:

  • Market Intelligence Workbook (Excel) - personalized spreadsheet includes four years of historical data in addition to the current base year market data and five-year market forecast.  This workbook enables licensed users to freely manipulate the data to make it easier to analyze the latest data for business intelligence and generate custom reports.
