North America Advanced Process Control Market Size, Share, Opportunities, COVID-19 Impact, And Trends By Type (Advanced Regulatory Control, Multivariable Model Predictive Control, Inferential Control, Sequential Control, Compressor Control), By Application (Oil And Gas, Pharmaceutical, Food And Beverage, Energy And Power, Chemical, Mining, Others), And By Country - Forecasts From 2022 To 2027

Published:  Mar 2022 Report Code: KSI061611059 Pages: 114

The North America advanced process control market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.41% during the forecast period to reach US$748.312 million by 2027, from US$351.358 million in 2020. Advanced process control is a wide term that refers to a collection of sophisticated technologies that are used to improve plant performance in a variety of applications. The advanced process control enables firms to operate at their best, allowing them to realize considerable cost savings while also increasing income generation capabilities. The improvement in the economic situation in the region is expected to encourage organizations in the region to install sophisticated process control technologies. Furthermore, the consistent development in corporate earnings by corporations is increasing their ability to spend on their operational operations, which is supporting market expansion.

The growing need in various industries such as nuclear power and petrochemical is a significant driver of the North American advanced process control market. The industries place a lot of emphasis on process improvement, safety, and optimization. Process industries benefit from APC systems because they help them effectively manage production time. It also enables businesses to ensure higher-quality products and make progress in areas such as process plant cost, efficiency, and safety. In addition, the region possesses the world's greatest installed nuclear power capacity and produces the most nuclear power. Around 20 percent of the electricity in the United States is generated by 99 nuclear reactors scattered across 31 states. New nuclear reactors are likely to be developed by 2021, according to estimates. The construction of new power plants, the existence of top semiconductor manufacturing sectors, and the desire for industrial automation are all projected to boost the North American APC market. The United States is undergoing an energy resurgence. Oil and gas production has increased as a result of technological breakthroughs in hydraulics and drilling fracturing (fracking) of shale formations. In addition, the country possesses the world's greatest installed nuclear power capacity and produces the most nuclear power. Around 20 percent of the electricity in the United States is generated by 99 nuclear reactors scattered across 31 states. New nuclear reactors are likely to be developed by 2021, according to estimates. Advanced process control systems are seeing a considerable increase in demand as nuclear power plant dependability improves.

Advanced process controls, on the other hand, are difficult to develop and support because of their complexity. Engineering and support demand a highly qualified team. This aspect might stymie APC adoption in several businesses. The use of technology necessitates a certain level of expertise. Research is presently conducted to make the technology more widely available and efficient in various fields. High processing costs and regular maintenance are among the few restraints. Smaller businesses hesitate to use APCs owing to a scarcity of qualified personnel and the necessity for large upfront investments.

Key Developments

In January 2022, Bedrock Automation, a manufacturer of industrial control systems, announced the release of a secure solution for automated remote reporting, monitoring, and control of underground injection water pressure at wellheads. The underground injection control (UIC) system takes care of all data monitoring, analysis, control, and reporting required by the California Code of Regulations, as well as providing secure advanced process control capabilities for wellsite optimization.

By type, the North American advanced process control market can be segmented into advanced regulatory control, sequential control, multivariable model predictive control, compressor control, and inferential control. The multivariable model predictive control is expected to have a significant share in the market. Energy refineries and facilities in desperate need of expert control can benefit from a multivariable model predictive control system. Food processing, chemicals, oil and gas, and petrochemicals are all industries that use multivariable model predictive control systems.

By application, the North American advanced process control market can be segmented into oil and gas, chemicals, mining, pharmaceuticals, energy and power, food and beverages, and others. In the North American advanced process control market, the oil and gas segment is likely to have a sizable market share owing to the increasing oil and gas production due to technological advancements in hydraulics.

By country, the North America advanced process control market can be segmented into the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The US advanced process control market is expected to dominate with the largest share in the market due to the growing need for energy and technological advancements in end-user industries.

Covid-19 Insights

The covid-19 pandemic has impacted various end-user industries. Asset owners have moved their focus from asset-intensive new capital and plant upgrades to satisfying sustainability objectives through optimization and operational safety projects as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, energy demand destruction, and poor consumer spending. Process variability is reduced and processes are optimized for restrictions. A global economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, as well as a collapse in the oil market with the benchmark price for US crude oil, was witnessed. Oil and gas revenues for a number of significant producers were expected to decline by 50 to 85 percent in 2020 compared to 2019, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), though the losses could be worse. This is expected to negatively impact the APC market.
