Market outlook of SCADA

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is used for remote controlling and monitoring operations across plants in an industry. It also aids in gathering information and control various industrial processes such as manufacturing, production, fabrication, and power generation in both discrete and process manufacturing industries. The ability of SCADA systems to interpret data collected from various sources is driving its demand in power, oil and gas, and water and wastewater treatment industries. Technavio’s market research analysts estimate the global SCADA market to reach USD 20 billion by the end of 2019.

The rise in big data analytics and mobile monitoring is expected to drive the growth of the SCADA market. SCADA systems and big data analytics can be integrated for decision-making and reduction of errors. Integration of analytics in SCADA using predictive modeling, forecasting, optimization, and statistical analysis could result in the identification of possible errors.
