The industrial control network is a system of interconnected equipments that are used to examine and control physical equipments in the industrial environments. An industrial control system helps to control and remote industrial automation equipment and decrease process lead time. For instance, the growth of SCADA systems across different industry verticals is triggered by increasing demand for remote control and supervision of equipment and processes. Furthermore, investment in power transmission and distribution in Asia Pacific is expected to drive the demand for process automation in the utilities sector. In addition, increasing need of software in industrial automation, rise in infrastructure investments in emerging markets and growth in demand for process automation among different industry verticals are the major factors that are driving the industrial controls market globally.

Among all the application segments, power sector segment holds the largest market share at present in the industrial controls market. Wide gaps in demand and supply of industrial control devices in developing countries such as China, India, and Japan is projected to boost the demand for DCA, SCADA, and PLC products in the power sector.
