Industrial control systems are a network of interconnected equipment that are used for supervising and controlling physical equipment in several industrial environments. These systems include numerous control systems such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCS), and programmable logic controllers (PLC). They are primarily used for remote supervision, process automation, and critical infrastructure automation. SCADA systems are employed for obtaining data from remotely placed devices such as transmitters, pumps, and valves, among others. These systems help in gathering data from faraway devices and transferring it to the master control unit for enhancing control. Distributed control systems or DCS are interlinked networks that ease the controlling activity of several processes that may be spread out over facilities. On the other hand, programmable logic controllers are deployed for making electromechanical processes such as controlling assembly lines in a factory, machinery, or light fixtures automatic.


The global industrial controls system market has been flourishing due to the growing entry of automation in the industrial sector and the increasing trend of remote supervision in several manufacturing facilities. Analysts predict the increasing software application in industrial control devices is expected to increase the market shares of PLS, DCS, and SCADA systems in the industrial environment. Some of the other factors expected to contribute towards the growth of the global industrial controls systems market are the emerging economies of Indonesia, India, and China, which are making heavy investments in automation and industrial infrastructure. The SCADA segment will witness a stupendous growth rate due to increasing demand for the same in sectors such as food and beverages, oil and gas, and chemicals. 


The global industrial controls system market has been segmented on the basis of types, components, applications, and geography. The types of industrial controls systems are programmable logic controller (PLC), distributed control system (DCS), and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA).
