Oil and Gas SCADA Systems Sales Struggle, But Are Poised to Recover

New ARC Advisory Group market research on the SCADA systems for the upstream and midstream oil & gas industry market reveals that SCADA systems must better support the increased demands for data and do so in the most secure manner possible. This is one of the findings of ARC’s SCADA Systems for the Oil and Gas Industry Global Market Research Report. End users utilize supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technology to help reduce operational and maintenance costs and link operations to business processes for a variety of purposes, including business performance management and leveraging investments in existing assets and systems to optimize capital expenditures. The global SCADA market reflects the impact of the new economic reality on SCADA components and more cost-effective communications for both data and knowledge transfer.

"Today’s SCADA systems show a continued evolution of technology components that are easier to implement, integrate, and distribute, while providing improved capabilities and functionalities. Web-enabled and/or mobile-enabled advanced applications and packaged solutions continue to grow in popularity, particularly for users seeking to integrate SCADA with business and enterprise-level applications and supply chains. Beyond the traditional data gathering and control functions, the addition of business intelligence-enabled applications has enhanced the value of SCADA systems. These new applications give users better insight into the economics of their operations, the easier ability to validate nominations and pipeline allocations, and tools to track carbon emissions, which aids them in regulatory compliance," according to Mark Sen Gupta, Director Strategic Services, and key author of ARC's SCADA Systems for Oil and Gas Industry Market Research Report.
