Distributed Control System Market to Reach $24.82 billion by 2026; Rising Depletion of Fossil Fuel to Accelerate Growth

April 24, 2020 | Energy & Power

The global distributed control system market size is projected to reach USD 24.82 billion by 2026. It is likely to gain impetus from the rising demand for energy owing to the increasing urbanization and industrialization worldwide. The generation of renewable power is hence, necessary to fulfil the urgent need for energy. Also, the depletion of fossil fuel would surge demand. Fortune Business Insights™ mentioned this information in a recent study, titled, “Distributed Control System Market Size, Share and Industry Analysis, By Component (Hardware, Software, and Services), By End-User (Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Power Generation, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage, and Others), and Regional Forecast 2019-2026.” The study further states that the market stood at USD 16.18 billion in 2018. However, it is set to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period between 2019 to 2026.

ABB Upgrades Ability™ System 800xA 6.1 to Enhance Project Engineering

In May 2019, ABB, a multinational corporation based in Switzerland, announced that it upgraded its Ability™ System 800xA 6.1. This new system would bring about crucial value to capital projects with more efficient and flexible engineering. It would also deliver important advancements to the DCS architecture and unveil technologies that would further shorten the time period required for project execution. Apart from that, it would help in refining the scalability of the system, lower the impact of late changes, and provide substantial value to capital projects. These would be brought about by a series of new engineering tools, namely, an Ethernet I/O Wizard, a new Ethernet I/O Field Kit, and control builder. Also, it would consist of high integrity controllers and Ethernet I/O solutions.
