SCADA, or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, is a software application used for process control. It is a control system which consists of several components such as software communication equipment, controller network interfaces, and input/output.

As a centralized system, SCADA is an IIoT Software that monitors an entire area, allowing operators to change set points for flow and enable alarm systems in case of various emergency conditions, such as the increase in temperature or change in the rate of flow. 

Based on its IIoT architecture and IIoT integration system, SCADA can communicate with all adjacent technical equipment through various networks such as RS-485, among others. The many technological advancements of the recent years have made it possible to standardize communication protocols, with SCADA systems providing remote access to monitoring systems by integrating them with web technologies.

SCADA Market Growth

The leading growth factors for the global SCADA market are the assessment of new oil and gas fields, as well as the low operational costs of the SCADA system itself. The increase in demand for new and reliable power distribution as well as transmission systems and remote monitoring are also fueling this growth. 

Already, SCADA systems are widely used across all sectors of the oil and gas industry. They provide enhanced IIoT security, reliability, as well as an increase in profitability for the oil and gas operations. 

Infrastructural Development

Nevertheless, the water and wastewater application are expected to grow at the highest rate during this period. SCADA is helpful by reducing their costs over the mid and long-term by ensuring reliable system operations that can predict, prevent, and react to all sorts of operational issues that may arise, reducing the possibility of downtime or other unforeseen events. 

Urban infrastructure, which is comprised of the electrical grid, water supply, traffic control, among others, all rely on SCADA for their functions and overall flow. Developing economies, mostly in Asia, is expected to generate the need for SCADA systems in this regard.

India, for instance, has initiated its 100 Smart Cities Mission, where it seeks to invest over $15 bn. over the next several years, to build efficient management and infrastructure solutions.

Regional Analysis

Regarding geography, Asia Pacific will dominate the SCADA market and is expected to grow at an ever faster rate throughout the foreseeable future. India and China will see an increase in SCADA systems demand, especially in the power industry. 

North America is at a close second, with the most significant investments being in the oil and gas industry, as well as the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things which are driving the market in the region.

Conclusion

In all, the market is expected to experience a growth worth somewhere around $13.43 bn., by 2022, with a CAGR growth of 6.6% between 2017 and 2022. Industrial mobility, remote management, cloud computing, and increased infrastructure development concerning smart-cities and transport, will all be using SCADA systems.

A key focus will be on smart meters, particularly Germany's nationwide rollout, which is currently gathering pace. Nationwide rollout of smart, digital electricity meters is fundamental to further efficiency gains and, indeed, to the energy transition. Hans-Jürgen Schmitt, CEO of PCVue Solutions, explains: "Building automation systems and indeed the electric power system as a whole cannot work properly unless all electricity meters are capable of transmitting their consumption readings digitally, because only then is it possible to achieve efficient, profitable energy management." Read More

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

Rockwell SleemanTen years ago, tourists looking for a taste of the local life in Southern Canada may have asked for one of the region’s best wines. Today, it’s all about craft beer.

From entrepreneurial newcomers to large-scale producers, brewers in Canada are cashing in on the thirst for craft beer. The number of microbreweries – ­producing less than 25,000 cases of 24 – has more than doubled in the last seven years.

The explosion in craft beer popularity had one company – Sleeman Breweries – bursting at its production seams. The third-largest brewer in Canada, Sleeman brews and distributes popular beers from lagers to pale ales.
