DUBLIN, December 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global PLC Market in Power Industry 2015-2019" report to their offering. 


The report expects the use of the cloud to manage PLCs to increase during the forecast period. PLCs are designed and installed at plant facilities to control and monitor particular sensors and transmitters. They are monitored through an HMI screen by a controller installed in the facility. 

Cloud computing technology helps organizations switch their databases to the cloud for easy access to complex data. However, the use of the cloud as a controller within plant facilities is still in the nascent stage because of fears of hacking and other security concerns. The use of cloud-based PLCs may rise in the future as most industries automate their processes and learn to adopt cloud technology for better data management.

The report forecasts the global PLC market in the power industry to grow at a CAGR of 6.22% over the period 2014-2019.

According to the report, the need for smart or automated factories has increased globally and process and discrete industries are seeking automation to boost plant efficiencies. Automation enables improved communication and precise coordination within factories, and ensures flexibility in the processes. Automation can reduce human involvement, machine downtime, operational costs, and enhance information sharing, operational control, and avoid major factory accidents. 

This has created demand for automation solutions such as DCS, SCADA, PLC, and HMI. Continuous monitoring and control of sensors at various levels is essential as many processes in the power industry are executed under difficult and harsh conditions. PLCs fill an irreplaceable need in these circumstances. In addition, the implementation of PLC-based systems reduces the possibility of accidents and process breakdown.

Further, the report states end-users seeking to upgrade their existing PLCs are unable to do so because it is a very expensive process. Hence, many end-users continue with their existing systems, which affects the growth of new emerging PLC vendors.
