Industrial Control System Market Emerging Trends, Business Opportunities and Growth Analysis to 2023 | Corona-Virus Impact

Market Highlights

The industrial control system (ICS) market is fast gaining popularity as different industries are opting for enhanced services and systems more broadly. On this, the global industrial control system market is anticipated to achieve unprecedented CAGR during the forecast period 2018-2023, reveals Market Research Future (MRFR) in an extensive study. It also covers in-depth analysis of drivers and segments to understand the thorough prospects of the market and valuation to achieve in the coming years.

Market Scope

The global industrial control system market is projected to expand at a stupendous growth rate over the forecast period. The need for industrial automation and emergence of internet of things (IoT) for expediting automation can drive the market. This is exemplified by the adoption of connected devices by enterprises for monitoring the condition of machinery and workers. The huge demand for protection of critical infrastructure across various industries can induce heavy market demand till 2023. The use of cryptography and heavy encryption at various stages can stave off common attacks such as DDoS and data theft. Monitoring of industrial processes in oil & gas and water treatment plants can provide a lucrative opportunity for the market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a halt to all production processes to restriction of human contact and movement within industrial premises. But remote controlling of processes and automation has ensured the continuity of production. Cyber threats to ICS can threaten the global industrial control system market growth. Collaborations and partnerships are on the rise to combat ICS threats as evident with the partnership between Check Point Software Technologies and Claroty which provides users complete visibility on processes and alerts them in case of attacks.
