Open Platform Communications (OPC) server software is a specialized industrial automation and control systems application. It facilitates communication and data exchange between devices, applications, and software platforms in a manufacturing or process control environment. The main purpose of OPC server software is to enable interoperability between diverse devices and systems, allowing them to share data seamlessly. The OPC server acts as a bridge between various industrial devices and the applications that need access to their data. It follows the OPC standard, which defines a set of specifications and protocols to ensure uniformity and consistency in data exchange. The key functions of OPC server software include data transportation, process and quality control, device diagnostics, condition monitoring, and asset management. In addition, the increasing adoption of industrial automation across various sectors, including manufacturing, oil and gas, power generation, and pharmaceuticals, created a growing demand for OPC server software. For instance,

  • As per Eagle Technologies, industrial automation will increase worldwide productivity by 0.8% to 1.4% yearly. As industries automated their processes, the need for seamless communication and data exchange between devices and systems drove the market.

Thus, OPC server software plays a vital role in enhancing the connectivity and interoperability of industrial automation systems, making it easier to manage and control complex processes in various industries.

Impact of COVID-19 on the OPC Server Software Market

The COVID-19 pandemic had a notable impact on the OPC server software market, a critical component of the industrial automation and control industry. Various industries faced unprecedented challenges due to widespread lockdowns, supply chain disruptions, and economic uncertainties. As a result, many industrial projects were put on hold or delayed, decreasing the immediate demand for OPC server software.

However, the pandemic highlighted the importance of digital transformation and remote operations for business continuity. Some industries accelerated their adoption of automation and remote monitoring solutions, leasing to an increased demand for OPC server software that supports seamless data exchange and remote access. On the other hand, budget constraints caused by economic challenges impacted investment decisions, affecting the pace of adoption in some sectors. Further, the market is expected to gain momentum in the post-pandemic.
