SCADA Market for Water and Wastewater Management to Benefit Massively from Utility Infrastructure Upgrade Activities

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems refer to variety of complex software products that are used for the purpose of analyzing and gathering real-time data concerned with a variety of entities. SCADA networks are used to monitor and control a variety of industrial devices and sensors in a system remotely, and communicate their statuses with a central data processor. In the field of water and wastewater management, SCADA systems are used for the effective management of water and wastewater resources.

In the recent years, the global SCADA market for water and wastewater management has witnessed a significant rise in research and development activities and a number of highly sophisticated products have entered the global market. The highly advanced SCADA systems of the present times are capable of effectively managing the dynamic changes that are occurring in the water and wastewater infrastructure across the globe.

In a recent market research report, Transparency Market Research states that the global SCADA market for water and wastewater management will register a healthy 5.6% CAGR over the period between 2015 and 2025. If the numbers holds true, the market could rise from a valuation of US$1,267.4 mn in 2015 to an opportunity of US$2,172.1 mn by 2025.

What factors will play a key role in the future growth of the market?

One of the key factors expected to drive the global SCADA market for water and wastewater management is the increased penetration of smart devices and a variety of sensors in water utility infrastructure across the globe. The increased demand for upgrading existing infrastructure so as to serve the mounting global population effectively is also massively contributing to the overall development of the global SCADA market for water and wastewater management. In the near future, the increased need for technological upgrades in water utility and wastewater processing, especially in developing economies across industrially thriving regions such as Asia Pacific will also lead to healthy growth opportunities for the global SCADA market for water and wastewater management.

The easy and increased availability of technologically advanced products having an improved set of capabilities and functionalities, the rapid pace of development of constituent elements that are flexible, and the massive improvement in the area of data communications are also helping SCADA systems gain increased penetration in the water and wastewater management sector. Moreover, strict environment-protection regulations and depleting sources of freshwater are also compelling countries to improve their water and wastewater management systems, thus developing the need for advanced technologies such as SCADA.
