By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global SCADA Market in Process Industries 2016-2020” report to their offering.

The global SCADA market in process industries is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.08% during the period 2016-2020.

SCADA as a service or SCADA in the cloud is likely to be a next logical step in the evolution of automation technology in process industries. SCADA providers and end-users can significantly reduce costs, achieve greater flexibility, and enhance functionality by shifting to the cloud-based environment. SMEs face budget constraints and cuts that make it difficult to afford the initial investment in a SCADA system.

According to the report, smart grids are standard electricity grids equipped with computer technology. This system allows monitoring, analysis, control, and communication between energy retailers, distributors, and customers. SCADA uses data from smart meters and sensors equipped with smart grids to measure and monitor electricity consumption, feed-in and flows, analyze information, and automatically execute the decisions to optimize grid operations.

Further, the report states that SCADA systems suffer from insufficient electronic security measures in spite of widespread awareness of the threats and consequences.
