By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global Automation Solutions Market in Shale Gas Industry 2016-2020” report to their offering.

The report forecasts the global automation solutions market to grow at a CAGR of 1.05% during the period 2016-2020.

The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The computational analysis of data (analytics) is a valuable asset that drives decision-making across various industries including the shale gas industry. The automation market is no exception, and vendors use analytics to enhance their business and boost value propositions. Analytics and statistical models can be custom-designed to meet market requirements. The use of such technologies boosts decision-making with the least margin for errors, helps anticipate future problems, and identifies the cause of errors.

According to the report, the shale gas industry is composed of various upstream, midstream, and downstream processes and operations that must function at optimum levels to ensure production and distribution of the products effectively. The use of automation technologies helps prevent wastage, increases efficiency, and reduces overall expenditure.

Further, the report states that sustained declines in crude oil and natural gas prices in the last two years may compel oil and gas companies to divest in infrastructure for the next two to three years. This may cast a negative influence on the automation solutions, such as DCS, PLC, SCADA, and MES, which monitor, control, and regulate shale gas exploration, production, and transportation.
