Distributed Control System Market Size, Share, Growth, Trend, Demand, Forecast 2026

Distributed Control System Market

The distributed control system market size will grow to USD 23.2 billion by 2026 (forecast year) from USD 17.5 billion in 2021 (estimated year), at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. Distributed control system (DCS) is A distributed control system (DCS) is employed for the handling of processes and plants to provide better control, safety, and product efficiency and quality at plants. Distributed control systems find applications in industries such as oil & gas, power generation, paper & pulp, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals to mainly control manufacturing through two processes: batch-oriented and continuous. The batch-oriented process is used when the production is carried out in subsequent batches, while the continuous process is used for the production type where the production flow does not involve any interruption. Distributed control systems localize the control functions near the process plant. which helps reduce the requirement of monitor/screen, as the process variables can be monitored remotely and decision can be taken accordingly.

Key Market Players:

The key players include ABB (Switzerland), Schneider Electric (France), Emerson (US), Siemens (Germany), and Honeywell (US).

Distributed Control System Market

The continuous process segment is expected to dominate the DCS market, by application, during the forecast period. 

The continuous process segment accounted for the largest share of 66.4% in 2020. The continuous process segment, by application, is projected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period. The continuous process is a method where the manufacturing process is carried out without any interruption and is generally preferred when producing large quantities. It is the faster-growing application in the distributed control system market. The continuous production process is used in oil & gas, chemicals, power generation, and water & wastewater treatment industries and is one of the more efficient and profitable methods of production. The use of distributed control systems in nuclear as well as renewable sectors in the power generation industry and in upstream and downstream activities in the oil & gas industry are the major factors driving the continuous process segment. The increasing production of chemicals and the growing demand for distribution control systems in the refining industry also contribute to the segment’s growth.

The oil & gas segment is expected to dominate the distributed control system market, by end-use industry, during the forecast period. 

The oil & gas segment accounted for the largest market share of 25.9% in 2020. Oil & gas is one of the largest industries in terms of revenue generation for the DCS market and is classified into 3 major sectors-upstream, midstream, and downstream. The upstream sector involves the extraction, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas, the midstream sector includes the transportation and storage of crude oil and refined petroleum products, and the downstream sector consists of companies involved in refining crude oil, producing petroleum products, and selling these products through wholesale and retail channels. The processes carried out in this industry are highly complex, lengthy, and critical. Distributed control systems are widely applied across all sectors of the oil & gas industry, as these systems ensure safety, reliability, and profitability in oil & gas operations.
