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.

Unique circumstances sometimes make it challenging, impractical, or even impossible for products to undergo the traditional certification process. This could be due to new technology that does not fit within a current standard, custom or imported equipment or impracticality due to limited volume production runs. Additionally relocating, modifying or refurbishing equipment introduces additional compliance requirements that if ignored can prevent a product from being placed in service.

In these unique situations, contractors and manufacturers of electrical products need to understand the steps to take to avoid having equipment red-tagged and prevented from being connected or installed at the job site. Go HERE to register

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.

Cybertech developed the Process Control and Safety Instrumented System Auditor to identify high-risk misalignments between plant process control and safety systems – and provide sufficient guidance to each plant system owner to resolve material issues.

Computerized data analytics are effective in mining the big data found in a typical process facility. The Cybertech System Auditor accepts native data from plant systems, cleans up and standardizes the data with purpose-built C# data mining applications and SQL data manipulation. Tiered SQL views minimize data duplication and facilitate automatic updates when base native data changes (e.g. after a system owner advises that they have resolved identified issues).
