LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to the latest market study released by Technavio, the industrial control systems (ICS) security software market in North America is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 6% during the forecast period.
This research report titled ‘Industrial Control Systems Security Software Market in North America 2016-2020’ provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This market research report also includes an up to date analysis and forecasts for various market segments and all geographical regions.
ICS security solutions are used to monitor and control systems on a regular basis. In addition, they provide a system with flexibility, enhanced performance, and simplified operations. ICS security is largely implemented in critical infrastructures, such as power plants, refineries, transportation systems, chemical factories, and manufacturing facilities which are highly sophisticated and have a complex infrastructure. “They require continuous monitoring and controlling at various levels to ensure the proper functioning of the facility. In the last decades, advanced network developments and ICS were used to enable remote command and control of these facilities. ICS is a support to the industrial process as it can command and control networks and systems in a facility,” says Amrita Choudhury, a lead analyst at Technavio for IT security research.
There has been a rise in the number of cyber-attacks and an increase in the sophistication of attacks. It is imperative that industrial control systems (ICSs) are monitored and analyzed for cyber threats to help ensure reliability, prevent data loss, decrease downtime, prevent operational and financial risks, and improve overall security.

The report categorizes the ICS security software market in North America market into three major product segments. They are:
- Distribution control systems (DCSs)
- Programmable logic controllers (PLCs)
- Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems
DCS ICS security software market in North America
DCSs are integrated with ICS systems to control and supervise industrial architecture. A DCS consists of a control architecture that offers a higher level of control over multiple integrated sub-systems that are responsible for controlling the details of a localized process.
In a DCS, the process is controlled by deploying feedback or feedforward control loops, where the key process conditions are automatically maintained by the operations controller. Specific PLCs are employed in the field to accomplish the desired process tolerance. DCSs are used extensively in process-based industries to manage and maintain the operations.
PLC ICS security software market in North America
PLCs are computer-based devices that control industrial processes and equipment. PLCs are the primary components in smaller control system configurations. They are used throughout SCADA and DCS systems. They help in providing operational control of discrete processes such as soot blower controls in power plants and assembly line management in automobile factories. “PLCs are widely used in most industrial processes to control operations,” says Amrita.
SCADA ICS security software market in North America
A SCADA system monitors and controls field sites over long-distance communication networks. They also monitor alarms and the data processing status of equipment. Operator-driven or automated supervisory commands are sent to remote station control devices, also known as field devices, based on the information received from remote stations. Field devices control local operations such as managing valves and breakers, collecting data from sensor systems, and monitoring alarms based on the local environment.
