ABB Named Global Leader in SCADA Systems for the Power SectorSource: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/4/2017, Location: Africa
ABB has been named as the global market leader in SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems for the power transmission and distribution sector by ARC Advisory Group, a leading technology research and advisory firm for industry, infrastructure, and cities, in its newly released report titled “SCADA Systems for the Electric Power Industry Market Analysis, 2016-2021.“
SCADA is a computer-based system for gathering and analyzing real-time data to monitor and control equipment that deals with critical and time-sensitive materials or events. Data is gathered, processed and presented, often to issue warnings when conditions become hazardous by sounding alarms.
According to the report, ABB is also the number-one supplier of SCADA control center solutions for Transmission and Distribution in North America and Latin America, and the global leader in large-scale SCADA projects (over USD $1 million). The report also positions ABB as the leading global supplier in terms of revenues from software, service, maintenance and customer support.
“We are encouraged by this recognition of ABB’s continued global leadership in network management solutions and our track record with the world’s leading utilities” said Claudio Facchin, President Power Grids division. “SCADA systems are becoming increasingly critical for the control and operation of an increasingly digitalized grid, and our ABB AbilityTM based solutions are ideally suited to support this transition, reinforcing our position as a partner of choice for enabling a stronger, smarter and greener grid.”
“ABB moved to the top of the leader board in 2016 having picked up more than six market-share percentage points on the strength of its integrated SCADA solutions,” said Steve Couther, ARC’s smart grid analyst and the report’s author. “We expect to see continued growth in this market driven by significant global trends such as the expansion of renewable energy sources, microgrids and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As per our estimates the SCADA market for T&D-related components of the electricity grid exceeded two and a half billion dollars in 2016 and is expected to grow through 2021.”
