A DCS is an automated control system that, rather than being centralized, is distributed across an entire organization. Such systems are distributed in such a way that each component or subsystem 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 operation.
These DCS solutions hence enable the effective and efficient control and management of the overall plant. Furthermore, they also facilitate a reduction in downtime errors and an increase in the productivity of the plant. These DCS solutions are adopted by various industries such as Oil and Gas, Power, Pharmaceutical, Pulp and Paper, Aerospace, Automotive, Shipbuilding, Machinery Manufacturing, Consumer Durables, and Food and Beverage.
The analysts forecast the Global DCS market will grow at a CAGR of 3.49 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The Global DCS market can be divided on the basis of end-user into eight main segments: Power, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceutical, Pulp and Paper, Food and Beverages, 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 Global DCS market.
