 Industrial Control Systems Security Market Size to grow by USD 10.8 billion between 2023-2027

According to a research report “ Industrial Control Systems Security Market” by Type (Network security, Cloud security) End-user (Oil and gas, Power, Chemicals and mining, Automotive, Others) Geography (North America, APAC, Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa)- Global Forecast to 2027 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 10.8 billion, at a CAGR of  7.79% during the forecast period. Industrial Control Systems (ICS), specifically Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, play a crucial role in the power generation, transmission, and distribution sectors. These systems facilitate the collection, storage, and analysis of data from numerous data points within national or regional electricity networks. They execute power network modeling, simulate power operations, identify faults, and prevent power outages. Moreover, they enable remote control of substations and power generation facilities. The escalating number of smart grid projects worldwide broadens the application scope of SCADA systems, particularly in emerging economies like India and Brazil, where energy demand is surging. Smart grids integrate centralized and distributed power generation, empowering power companies to distribute surplus power and manage real-time pricing and load data effectively.
