Supervisory control and data acquisition or SCADA is a computer system and is generally used to analyze and gather real time information and data. A SCADA system consists of several programmable logic controllers, remote terminal units, human machine interface and telemetry. The primary purpose of SCADA systems is to control and monitor remote equipment across various industries including transportation, telecommunications, water and waste control and oil and gas refining. The SCADA system publishes information in an organized and logical pattern. Since SCADA is an extensive process, it includes infrastructure, industrial and facility based processes. Increasing demand for visualization, monitoring and controlling equipment across distinct industries is a key factor driving the global SCADA market. SCADA is majorly found useful in natural gas industry and is rapidly gaining preference owing to oil crisis. Moreover, since SCADA is deployed for real time analysis of data, it is more time intensive which is a key factor acting as a major hurdle in the global SCADA market. Also, the use of internet is making SCADA more vulnerable to cyber threats and thus cyber security concerns are some other restraining factors in the global SCADA market.
SCADA systems are typical and complex software solutions used to facilitate the analyzing and gathering of real time information and data. SCADA networks aids in controlling and monitoring a wide variety of sensors and industrial devices remotely. The statuses of these aforementioned elements are further transferred to a central data processing unit. Over the past few years, the global SCADA market has undergone high level of maturity in reference to sophistication of the available products. Currently, modular SCADA and technologically advanced systems are capable enough to manage the dynamically transforming infrastructure of the water and wastewater industries.
Various factors including rising competition between utility companies and convergence of smart devices in water utility infrastructure are some of the major factors boosting the global SCADA market. In addition, increasing need to enhance and scale up the existing wastewater management infrastructure to cater to the increasing population effectively is another key element expected to propel the adoption of SCADA systems during the forecast period. Also, rising demand for technological upgrades in water utility systems, especially in developing economies such as India, China, Indonesia etc. is also expected to provide impetus to the global market during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is projected to account for the major revenue share of the global SCADA market over the forecast period. Moreover, to serve the burgeoning population more effectively, water and wastewater industries in Asia-Pacific are utilizing SCADA systems on a comparatively large scale in order to upgrade the overall utility infrastructures. The water and wastewater industries in developed economies are using SCADA systems as one of the core techniques to improve the management of effectively developed utility infrastructure which is a key aspect propelling the demand for technologically advanced SCADA systems over the forecast period.
