Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Market: Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Trends, Application Analysis and Growth by Forecast to 2018-2022


Industrial control systems is the term includes few types of control systems such as Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) which is used for industrial process control. Industrial Control System is a type of system which allows the industries to control various activities such as production, data acquisition, supervisory among others. Industrial control systems deal with different utilities such as robot, various power plants, HVAC establishments, and cell entryways of a jail. These control systems are majorly used for remote supervision, critical infrastructure automation, and process automation.

A Distributed Control Systems is specially designed automated control system which consists of geographically distributed control elements over the control or plant area. In DCS, control function and data acquisition are carried through DCS controllers which are based on microprocessor units and is distributed functionally and geographically over the plant. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is a system of hardware and software which allows the organizations to monitor, gather, and process real time data.
