NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Analysis of the Automation and Control Systems in Turkish Oil and Gas Industry

Growing Demand for Oil and Gas will Fuel ACS Investments

This research service provides an insight into the Turkish Automation Control and Solutions (ACS) market for the period 2008 to 2016, with a detailed end-user analysis. The research analyses the various industry challenges, and market drivers and restraints pertaining to this market. The study also provides revenue forecasts by product type and geography. Moreover, it analyses the competitive structure of leading market participants, with strategic insights on emerging technological trends. The competitive structure also provides a snapshot into the positioning of existing vendors and sheds light on the future of the competitor landscape.

Executive Summary

• In 2011, the Turkish automation and control solutions (ACS) market accounted for $ Xmillion in revenues and is expected to reach $ X million in 2016, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of Xper cent.• High potential for ACS growth in the Turkish oil and gas industry is expected to increase competition among vendors during the forecast period.• Green field projects, such as Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP), Socar Turcas Aegean Refinery (STAR), and Tupras Residue Upgrading Project (RUP), will probably boost growth in all oil and gas end-user segments that include upstream, midstream, and downstream.• Turkish Government is determined to sustain oil and gas exploration; and investments in upstream exploration activities will be spurred on by both government and foreign investors.• In case of midstream operations, newer investments are expected primarily from foreign investors as there is a growing need to create an alternative for the Russian gas supply monopoly to Europe.

CEO's Perspective

1. The demand for advanced ACS products in Turkey will gain mileage with increased investments.2. The growth of the Turkish oil and gas industry is expected to be uniform across all three end-user segments.3. Uncertain macro-economic conditions are likely to influence investor sentiments in the short-term.4. Lack of skilled ACS manpower and adequate vendor service support are key challenges in this market.5. Local market participants will have a growing presence in software and system integration.


• This research covers automation and process control products in the Turkish oil and gas industry and includes products such as distributed control systems (DCS), programmable logic controllers (PLC), safety instrumented system (SIS), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), manufacturing execution system (MES), and human machine interface (HMI).• The base year for this study is 2011. The historic period is from 2008-2010 and forecast is from 2012-2016.• End-user segmentation in oil and gas industry covers upstream, midstream, and downstream segments in this study.• In this study, upstream refers to oil and gas exploration and production, midstream refers to oil and gas transportation and distribution, and downstream refers to oil and gas refining.• The scope of this research includes revenues genereted by hardware, software, and services, as well as revenues from system integrators and value-added resellers in Turkey.• The competitor landscape for this study covers tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3 companies.

DCS: DCS refers to a complex network architecture distributed across an industrial environment and facilitating operational control. For this research, the DCS definition includes a combination of operator panels, engineering workstations, microprocessors, (I/O) modules, software, system and marshalling cabinets, field buses/networks, and related DCS services in engineering, maintenance, and upgrades.

SIS: Safety systems form a key part of automation and control architecture in oil and gas industries. These systems include hardware, software, and services employed under different safety segments, such as emergency shutdown (ESD), fire and gas (FGS), and high integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS).

PLC: A PLC includes a combination of micro-processors, I/O modules, network modules, and associated software. PLC services, including engineering, maintenance, and upgrades, are also taken into consideration under this segment. This segment is a summation of product sales and service revenues.

SCADA: SCADA forms a key part of oil and gas installations. A SCADA system primarily includes the main terminal unit that is connected with key plant units used for data acquisition. SCADA, for this research, includes cost incurred for geographically distributed plant assets, software application cost, and service expenditure.

HMI: HMI, ideally, includes software and hardware used in controlling and monitoring specific machines or process operation in an oil and gas plant. HMI is generally combined with DCS, PLC, and SCADA systems and forms an integral part of operator interaction in the plant floor.

MES: MES enables end-users process plant intelligence to improve production output and enhance overall process operation. MES is used in planning production schedules, quality enhancement, maintenance recovery, and plant performance evaluation. It includes a combination of hardware, software, and services.
