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.
