Global PID Controller Market 2017-2021

About PID Controller

Proportional–Integral–Derivative (PID) controllers are mainly used to calculate the error values and control and regulate parameters such as pressure, temperature, motion, and flow. Simple functions and cost advantage over PLC devices are major advantages for PID controllers in the industrial sector. PID controllers used for temperature controlling, pressure controlling, motion controlling, and flow controlling are considered for estimating the market.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global PID controller market to grow at a CAGR of 2.53% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global PID Controller Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global PID controller market: ABB, Eurotherm, Gefran, OMRON, and Wachendorff Automation.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Calex Electronics, Durex Industries, Enfield Technologies, HANYOUNGNUX, Honeywell, Red Lion Controls, RKC Instrument, TOPTICA Photonics, Watlow, West Control Solutions, and Yokogawa.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is use of hybrid temperature controllers for temperature controlling functions. Hybrid temperature controllers have a high loop-processing capacity and the time required to execute the programs is also less compared with other temperature controller devices. Many end-user industries prefer these hybrid controllers, as these are economical and can perform some of the functions of a PLC. These controllers are more efficient than normal PID-based temperature controllers.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is low price of PID controllers. The prices of PID controllers are lower when compared with PLC devices. The time required to execute loop functions and the efficiency of PLCs are comparatively better than PID controllers. However, one of the major reasons for the growth in demand for PID controllers is their low price, which is preferred by many end-users. Therefore, PID controllers are considered as an economical choice for many purposes by end-users, whereas PLC devices are used for higher functions.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high demand for PLC devices. Due to higher loop processing capacity and functions of PLC controllers, many end-users have started preferring these over normal PID controllers, which is having a negative impact on the global PID controller market. Temperature controllers account for the majority of the revenue for PID controllers and PLC are implemented along with sensors for faster response and integration with other control parameters in the process. PLCs can perform many functions within an industrial facility, thereby eliminating the use of other controllers such as PID controllers.
