Industrial automation market set to grow

automationThe industrial automation market for oil and gas is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2 per cent between 2017 and 2023, according to a recent report from MarketsandMarkets

The industrial automation market for oil and gas is expected to reach US$15.52bn by 2023, according to the report, entitled Industrial Automation Market for Oil & Gas - Global Forecast to 2023.

The distributed control system controls various components that are distributed in the overall system of industrial automation for oil and gas, enabling the maintenance of digital communication between various components such as distributed controllers, workstations, and other computing elements. The DCS controls processes such as oil and gas refineries, pipeline transport, and extraction.

Field instruments comprise three types of transmitters - pressure, temperature, and flow, which are used for various processes involved in instrumentation. Pressure transmitters are extensively used in the oil and gas sector for the measurement of flow, level, pressure, density, and viscosity, among which flow measurement is the most common application area.
