Distributed Control System Global Market Report 2023: Sector to Reach $44.05 Billion by 2030 at a 5.4% CAGR

DUBLIN, May 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Distributed Control System Market by Component Application, by Project Type, by End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast 2023-2030" report has been added to's offering.


The distributed control system market size was valued at USD 27.19 billion in 2022, and is predicted to reach USD 44.05 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 5.4% from 2023 to 2030.

Advancements in technology, including the industrial internet of things (IIoT), cloud computing, virtualization, big data, analytics, and smart IIoT-connected sensors for asset condition monitoring, have led to significant developments in DCS.

These emerging technologies have enabled DCS to become more advanced, efficient, and reliable, providing the power industry with more sophisticated and comprehensive monitoring and control solutions. As technology continues to evolve, DCS can provide better automation, efficiency, and reliability in the industry than before.

For instance, in July 2022, Dragos, Inc. announced the expansion of its global relationship with Emerson. With this expansion, Emerson validated the Dragos Platform within its DeltaVTM DCS, providing organizations with enhanced ICS/OT cybersecurity.

However, the risk associated with cybercrimes hinders the growth of the market. On the contrary, the introduction of modular and flexible DCS systems provides ample opportunities for the market growth. Modular systems are designed to be more flexible and scalable, with a modular architecture that allows easy integration with other systems and components.

This makes it easier to customize DCS systems to meet the specific needs of individual organizations without the need for costly and time-consuming customization. These systems can help improve production efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance product quality. These factors are expected to propel the demand for DCS systems across a range of industries, including manufacturing, energy, and process.
