SCADA Alarm Management Market Overview
SCADA Alarm Management market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 12% during 2021-2031, and is projected to reach US$ 1.5 Bn by 2031. A successful SCADA alarm notification system requires that the real-time information is to be shared with the operators in a timely manner.
The main purpose of these systems is to assist the operator in preventing or minimizing system downtime. The SCADA alarm management system is a system that pinpoints the exact cause of a problem and origin of the problem that occurs on the plant floor operations.
What is Driving Demand for SCADA Alarm Management?
The modern pipelines and distribution systems have become more complex in nature. Today, the total length of pipelines amounts to 2.76 Mn km in more than 120 countries. In 2019 alone, pipeline projects were completed for a total mileage of 7,830 km, which is about one-fifth of the earth’s circumference.
For operators, it has become a part of the daily work procedures to manage the alarm system quality in distribution plants, to ensure that the alarm system continues to be a useful resource for safe and efficient control room operation.
However, the major challenge with the alarm system is that when one thing goes wrong, lots of other things tend to go wrong, and the operator is get confused between all the alarms altering at the same time. There has to be a better way to manage and prioritize the alarms.
An effective SCADA alarm management system is critical to ensure that the process control rooms can safely and efficiently respond to activities in all operating conditions (normal, abnormal, and emergency).
With the increasing push for the adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0, intelligent alarm solution is giving plant operators an opportunity to gain efficiency and effectiveness with SCADA monitoring as well as enhance critical asset reliability for boilers, chillers, compressed air and other systems. The increasing need to effectively manage alarms in process plants is expected to drive the market growth.
Higher Adoption of SCADA Systems in Oilfields
Industrial organizations across every industry manage countless production processes and transactions every day. Integration of SCADA systems into oilfield help organizations to handle the complex processes required to operate in the new and existing oilfields. These control systems provide a stable and cost-effective solution to the needs of the oil and gas sector.
Accurate, real-time data is key to succeeding in the oil and gas industry. Management operators oversee operations, inspect equipment, gather enormous amounts of data, strive to minimize downtime and ensure that everything runs smoothly and seamlessly. Management operators make use of information analyzed by SCADA systems to calculate production values, generate trends for decision-making and project company profits. Performing these duties manually is a very critical and time-consuming task.
Thus, companies turn to SCADA to oversee operations, improve efficiency and minimize downtime. On top of that, companies also rely on the SCADA alarm management system for advanced warning and alerting mechanisms, helping management create deliberate and strategic actions to mitigate damage.
