Factors driving the process automation and instrumentation market include the increasing demand for energy-efficient production processes, rising concerns related to functional safety, and the demand for a software system that would determine failures at the component level. Factors such as the increasing importance of regulatory compliance, implementation of automation solutions for manually uncontrollable processes, predictive maintenance and factor visibility, increased labor cost, high level of efficiency with the help of wireless networks are also supporting the growth of the process automation and instrumentation market.

HMI, APC, and MES Markets Expected to Grow Rapidly During the Forecast Period

The market for software products such as human machine interfaces (HMI), advanced process controls (APC), and manufacturing execution systems (MES) is expected to grow at a higher CAGR compared to non-software products. The main driving factor for the demand for software products includes the increasing cost of production; the demand to increase the production rate to meet the increasing demand of products from customers. This is mainly due to the fact that software systems help in identifying and collecting data regarding the problem area in a production process. Companies are actively looking for such a software product which is expected to help in increasing the production efficiency by eliminating wastage and in-efficient elements in a production process.

The Market in Oil & Gas Held the Largest Share of the Total Market in 2015

The application in the oil & gas sector accounted for the largest market share, in terms of value, in 2015. This is mainly due to the fact the production processes in oil & gas companies are extremely complex and hazardous. Although the demand for automation in oil & gas units is huge, the recent decline in oil prices could impact the growth rate of the process automation and instrumentation market. It has been estimated that if the current price trend continues then the growth of process automation and instrumentation for oil and gas will be very slow.

Market in APAC Expected to Grow at A High CAGR During the Forecast Period

The implementation of automation is increasing in APAC due to the rising necessity for high-quality products associated with increased production rates. It also helps in the reduction of labor costs and human interference. Implement of process automation and instrumentation products and services is expected to help improve the efficiency of production processes.
