Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Plant Automation Solutions Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global plant automation solutions market: ABB Electric, Emerson Electric, Honeywell International, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Siemens.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Control Systems International, Dassault Systèmes, General Elecric, Hitachi Group, Idec, Keyence, Koyo Electronics, Metso, Mitsubishi Electric, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Omron, Panasonic, Toshiba International, and Yokogawa Electric.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The current trend is the increased focus on industrial IoT. The Internet of Things (IoT) electronically connects industrial equipment with unique identifiers. IoT boosts efficiency, and enables the transfer of data across the network without human-to-computer or human-to-human interaction. It is an emerging technology trend, which will boost a company by ushering in a new era of economic growth and competitiveness.”

According to the report, more industrial regulations and sharper scrutiny by regulatory bodies has encouraged enterprises to pursue the implementation of automation solutions. Many industry regulators are mandating strict technical norms designed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the power and oil and gas industries; to govern the permissible impurity range in the water and wastewater treatment industries; and to prevent adulteration of the permissible chemical content in the food and beverage industries. Such regulations are also designed to reduce chemical contamination and prevent industrial accidents in the chemicals and petrochemicals, fertilizers, oil and gas, power and cement industries.

Further, the report states that apprehension among end-users for automation solutions may delay adoption and market growth.
