Global SCADA market in the oil and gas industry

The oil and gas industry is a major source of income in EMEA, and the market for SCADA is expected to grow at a faster rate because of the increasing complexities of production and distribution. The oil and gas industry contributed a major share of close to 26% to the global SCADA market in terms of revenue in 2016.

“The smart grid technology in the power industry is a major trend, which is widening the scope of implementation of SCADA in countries such as India and Brazil to meet their high demand. The existence of a gap between demand and supply in these countries is forcing the industry to optimize the process,” says Raghav.
