The storage terminals, nowadays, are considered as an essential part of many organizations operating across different corners of the world. These terminals not only act as the storage terminals but also as a value addition point. Oil and gas industry offers fuel that gets consumed by the industrial or domestic users for various purposes; thus, to match up with the increasing demand, the oil and gas industry needs terminal automation system, which performs operations in a more faster and efficient way. Terminal automation in Oil and gas offers a wide array of services like monitoring and evaluating systems at terminals, which are present at remote locations. Monitoring sensors at terminals analyze the execution of operations and transfers the data to the respected person. This regulates the entire operations at the terminals. Thus, these operations become error-free by eliminating human interference.

Terminal automation in oil and gas is beneficial for the successful functioning and completion of the crucial terminal operations by integrating products like DCS, SCADA, PLC, HMI, automatic gauging, process safety system, blending controllers, and security. These products provide error free approach and superiority in the operations of the oil and gas terminals.

The transportation in the oil and gas industry is segmented by – truck and pipeline. Automation processes are in practice so as to monitor these transports automatically, in order to make them efficient and safe.

The terminal automation market in oil and gas is showcasing a high growth, currently, due to the need for automated systems to increase the functional and operational efficiencies at a low cost.

The overall global terminal automation market in oil and gas is segmented into three major segments, namely - by product, by transportation mode, and by geography. All the major segments are further segmented into sub segments. All the segments and sub segments are separately classified in the report. The global market is expected to reach up to $4.4 billion by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 8.91% from 2014 to 2020.
