Top 6 Vendors in the Automation Solutions Market in the Oil and Gas Industry from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global automation solutions market in the oil and gas industry report. This research report also lists 10 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Reduction in oil prices will lead to high demand and less production, which in turn will help in balancing the market and pave the way for the recovery of oil prices. However, this process may take two to three years to reach an equilibrium point. Once equilibrium is achieved, companies will adopt a wait-and-watch approach before restarting their proposed projects and announcing new investments. Hence, we estimate that the market will show growth only during the latter half of the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global automation solutions market in the oil and gas industry is highly concentrated and dominated by large key vendors such as ABB, Emerson Electric, Siemens, and Honeywell. The existence of global players and reduced cost structure of the oil and gas companies has bred a competitive environment, which is expected to intensify further in the light of future innovations in technology.

Vendors are increasing profitability by offering cost-effective services such as mobile and web services. In addition, vendors are also offering value-added services such as consultancy, solution integration, support and maintenance, and staff training to address opportunities and risks,” says Bharath Kanniappan, a lead automation analyst from Technavio.

Intense competition, rapid changes in technology, and the turbulent scenario of the oil and gas industry also represent significant risks for vendors. Therefore, market vendors are distinguishing their product offers with unique selling propositions (USP) to survive and succeed in this intensely competitive environment.
