The three emerging market trends driving the global automation control market in the power generation sector according to Technavio research analysts are:
- Emergence of integrated solutions
- Emergence of cloud-based automation solutions
- Virtual Power Plants (VPP) gaining momentum
Emergence of cloud-based automation solutions
Automation solution through cloud gives power companies advantages such as reduction in costs, functionality enhancement, and to achieve greater flexibility by shifting toward cloud-based environments. Cloud-based architecture eliminates the hardware expenses related to the IT infrastructure of automation solutions such as MES and SCADA. The shift to cloud service provider through cloud-based architecture from analyzing and maintaining data from the operators, enables the users to view data on devices such as tablets and smartphones. These devices are also used as portable HMIs to monitor remote machines and enable field technicians to access and control the processes. Integration of near field communication (NFC) and Global positioning system (GPS), have enabled the installation of SCADA in iPads and smartphones.
"The adoption of cloud-based SCADA solutions is expected to reduce end-users' costs up to 25% when compared with traditional SCADA solutions in the power industry. In Southeast Asia and India, due to the rising energy demands, 30% of the power companies are expected to deploy their operations on the cloud by 2020," says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automation.
