MCAA Market Forecast projects instrumentation, automation industry to be $14 B by 2021
POQUOSON, VA — The 2016 Process Instrumentation and Automation market in the United States, valued at $11.7 B, is projected to grow 3.6% by 2021 to a total of $14 B.
The Measurement, Control & Automation Association (MCAA) has published its Annual Market Forecast for 2017. The report, prepared by the analysts at Global Automation Research, focuses on the Process Instrumentation and Automation (PI&A) markets in both the United States and Canada. Twelve industry segments and product categories are examined in-depth, with a forecast timeline extending to the year 2021.
Growth will be concentrated in five industries: Chemicals, electric utilities, oil refining, food & beverage, and pharmaceuticals. The cumulative market gain will be $2.3 MM over the forecast period. The chemicals industry market gain will be the largest at about $850 MM. The next four fast growing industries will add over $1 B in market gain. The market gain of the remaining slow-growing industries will equal about $340 MM.
Oil & Gas spending is expected to be essentially flat in 2017, then increasing through the end of the forecast period. The 5-yr CAGR is forecast to be 1.4%. The 2016 Canadian PI&A Market value was $1.2 MM, versus $1.2 MM in 2015. Gains in non-oil & gas industries were negated by the continuing drop in oil & gas spending through 2016. The market is forecast to grow at 3.8% CAGR over the 5-yr forecast period, reaching $1.5 MM in 2021. Six industries—chemicals, F&B, electric utilities, oil refining, W&WW and pharmaceuticals—as a group, will grow at a 4.8% 5-yr CAGR. Economic forecasts suggest that the Canadian GDP will remain above 2% over the forecast period, creating a strong base for continued growth in PI&A spending.

At October’s HPI Forecast Breakfast for our sister publication, <i>Hydrocarbon Processing</i>, I shared <i>Gas Processing</i>’s forecast on change in the LNG industry.
In one of the toughest markets in the history of gas compression, we are challenged to deliver more with less.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction. Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.
