ARC Research Shows Expanding Market for SCADA Systems in Water & Wastewater

ARC Advisory Group’s recent research reveals that the worldwide market for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems for water & wastewater applications is expanding as new water infrastructure is constructed in emerging markets and newly developed regions. The existing water & wastewater monitoring and control infrastructure is also being upgraded to improve core business process efficiency. With the increasing demand for efficiency at water utilities, the importance of high-performance SCADA technology has grown. Leading suppliers are continuously upgrading their SCADA systems with intelligent software platforms that can deal with various requirements like on-premises, on the edge, and the cloud.

"Cloud-based SCADA will be a significant driver for future market growth. The resulting IT savings, inherent redundancy, increased up-time, and other obvious benefits make SCADA in the Cloud very attractive, particularly since control itself is pushed to the edge and the need for real-time control from the host system is minimal. The convergence of information technology (IT) and SCADA technology drives SCADA to become a more integrated part of overall operations. Technology drivers such as the proliferation of industrial Ethernet networks, wireless mobile applications, and wireless networks for plants are fast tracking the trend of tying SCADA to other business systems, such as performance software, electronic work instructions, GIS, asset management, CMMS, SOP, and hydraulic modeling software," according to Vidya Prasad, Senior Analyst and key author of ARC's SCADA Systems for Water and Wastewater Market Research.
