DCS Market in the US 2015-2019

About DCS

DCS is an automated control system that is distributed across an entire organization. DCS ensures that each component or sub-system of a manufacturing plant is controlled by one or more controllers. Thus, each section of the plant has its own control operations. Hence, DCS solutions enable effective and efficient control and management of the entire plant. In addition, they also reduce downtime errors and increase productivity. DCS solutions are adopted by various industries such as Power, Pharmaceuticals, Oil and Gas, Pulp and Paper, Food and Beverages, Chemical, Automotive, and Packaging.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the DCS market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 3.64% over the period 2014-2019.
