A DCS is an automated control system that, rather than being centralized, is distributed across the entire organization. The DCS systems are distributed in such a way that each component or sub-system of a manufacturing plant is controlled by one or more controllers, thereby providing instructions to different parts of the plant. Thus, instead of having a centrally located control system, each section of the plant has its own control operations.
DCS solutions, hence, enable the effective and efficient control and management of the entire plant. Furthermore, they also facilitate a reduction in downtime errors and an increase in plant productivity. TDCS solutions are adopted by various industries such as Power, Pharmaceuticals, Oil and Gas, Pulp and Paper, Food and Beverage, Chemical, Automotive, and Packaging.
The analysts forecast the DCS market in the EMEA region to grow at a CAGR of 4.62 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The DCS market in the EMEA region can be divided on the basis of end-users into eight main segments: Power, Pharmaceutical, Oil and Gas, Pulp and Paper, Food and Beverage, Chemical, Automotive, and Packaging industries.
The above end-user segments are the major consumers of DCS systems and their performance has a direct impact on the growth of the DCS market in the EMEA region.
The report, the DCS market in the EMEA region 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts.
