Frost & Sullivan: Customized Offerings Vital to Increase Adoption of Advanced Process Control Solutions in India
Increasing investments in the oil and gas sector bodes well for the process control solutions market

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Tuesday, March 19, 2013 — (Business Wire India) — Increasing investments in oil and gas refining, petrochemicals, chemicals and fertilizers – both greenfield and brownfield projects – are expected to augment the demand of advanced process control (APC) solutions. Automation vendors can make the most of this market opportunity by customizing solutions to the specific needs of the end users.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, Analysis of the Advanced Process Control and Process Optimization Market in India, finds that the market earned revenues of $9.1 million during 2012 and expects this to reach $12.9 million in 2016.

“Companies in India are trying to increase energy efficiency and are considering investments in appropriate advanced solutions,” said Frost & Sullivan the Industrial Automation & Process Control Analyst. “Advanced solutions with energy management features to address environmental concerns, comply with regulations, and improve plant efficiency are likely to enjoy high uptake.”

Real-time process optimization and adaptive control are the need of the hour. Many plant owners are focusing on enhancing asset utilization by implementing advanced solutions. These solutions will also help achieve optimal plant efficiency, increase return on investment, and conserve energy.

While APC solutions’ benefits are many, limited end-user awareness about them is expected to hamper rapid adoption. End users perceive APC as suited for large-scale projects. The perceived technical complexity, which involves plant modeling and simulation, further deters end users from adopting the technology.

“Customized solutions for each end user and awareness campaigns about the advantages of APC and process optimization solutions will be the key to success in this market,” noted the analyst.
