LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global intelligent remote terminal unit (RTU) market report. This research report also lists 13 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Increased demand for energy and focus on energy efficiency are driving the need for data analysis and monitoring of grids. RTUs are devices that enable these processes as they are connected to all devices on the grid. They collect data from every device, send it to SCADA, and communicate the changes made, if any, and send back to the devices, affecting the performance of the grid in real time. RTUs play a crucial role in monitoring and controlling of the grid. They provide real-time data that help in carrying out necessary actions to ensure that the power outage is prevented, stop the leaks in the water line, or prevent any breakage in the pipeline used to transport oil and gas.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global intelligent RTU market is a saturated market, including many prominent vendors with products that have a wide scope of applications. High integration of advanced technologies is available, making the grid efficient and reliable. As remote terminal systems are required to interact with other systems of the grid, it is an essential part of the smart grid to monitor and communicate for optimal operation of the grid.

The big vendors have a large portfolio of grid-related products, which can be customized depending on customer needs, making the market competitive. This is a challenge for medium and small vendors,” says Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead smart grid analyst from Technavio.

ABB offers a range of power and automation technologies for utility, industry, transport, and infrastructure customers worldwide. The company offers the RTU500 series used in electrical and process automation applications.
