Market Dynamics

Growing digitalization in the oil & gas industry is the leading factor driving the global oil & gas automation market growth. Oil and gas have played a critical part in the world's economic change for more than a century, but the industry is about to enter a new age. Digital transformation may improve operational efficiency and workplace safety while also reducing the industry's environmental effect. The automation solutions offer numerous benefits such as increased productivity and efficiency; provide safety and reliability and save time and capital. These benefits are creating awareness among oil & gas businesses to shift their focus on automation systems.

The growing number of oil & gas exploration activities is also one of the trends that have skyrocket the market growth. The more the number of oil & gas exploration activities will be carried out the more the requirement for automation will be needed. The market is also driven by the growing energy consumption in the oil & gas sector due to inefficient processes. Integrated automated technologies in this sector save not only energy but also time and money. Technology advancements have resulted in a linked enterprise, which aids the oil and gas industry in achieving operational excellence. Cloud, mobility and analytics provide a window into real-time production data that may be used to make decisions. However, high capital investments could hold back the market growth for a brief period of time.

Market Segmentation

Technology, component, process, and region are all used to segment the worldwide oil & gas automation market.

Market by Technology

·         Distributed Control System (DCS)

·         Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

·         Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)

·         Machine Execution System (MES)

·         Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

·         Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

·         Other Technologies

Based on our analysis the distributed control systems (DCS) segment is likely to achieve a considerable market share in 2021. Distributed control systems (DCS) is a control architecture that includes a supervisory level of control that oversees several, interconnected sub-systems that manage the intricacies of a localized operation. Increased usage of renewable and nuclear energy for power generation, as well as the adoption of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) for real-time decision making, are some of the primary drivers of DCS. In addition, the supervisory control and data acquisition(SCADA) is one of the leading segments that generated a noteworthy market share during the projected years 2022 – 2030.

Market by Component

  • Hardware
  • Software
  • Service

Among the Component, the hardware segment generated a significant market share in 2021. The hardware segment consists of critical instruments such as field instruments, control valves, leakage detection systems, flow computers, and communication devices. Businesses can build safe production procedures using automation and instrumentation technologies. The difficulties of shale gas exploration, as well as the demand for enhanced machinery, are expected to boost the oil & gas automation &instrumentation industry. Software and services, on the other hand, are likely to register an impressive growth rate in the coming years.

Market by Process

  • Midstream
  • Upstream
  • Downstream

All the processes are critical for the oil & gas automation industry. The goal in the upstream segment is a quick return on investment. Participants want to discover and produce products in the quickest, safest, and most cost-effective manner possible. In midstream oil and gas operations, the framework is frequently more accessible, and the situations are less severe. As a result, automation solutions have advanced significantly. Furthermore, the downstream segment of the oil industry is in charge of product distribution and marketing.
