Advanced Process Control and Online Optimization

The Advanced Process Control (APC) and Online Optimization market research study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries.

Advanced Process Control and Online Optimization for Sustainability

During this current period of market volatility due to the onset of the Coronavirus, energy demand destruction, and slow consumer spend, asset owners have pivoted from large capital, asset-intensive new builds and plant modifications, to meeting sustainability objectives through optimization and operational safety projects.  The focus of industrial investments is on sustainable operations, production improvement, and reducing maintenance costs.  Sustainability and green initiatives are becoming increasingly important to industrial companies. Improving operational safety also plays a vital role, since – for many companies - this is part of the license to operate. Advanced process control and online optimization technologies reduce process variability, minimize costly product giveaway, optimize processes against constraints, and support autonomous operations.

The advanced process control and online optimization market will continue to grow.  Some regions, like the emerging economies, will continue to invest heavily in new projects.  Other, more developed regions are focusing on modernization projects as well as safety, reliability, sustainability, and efficiency improvements.  The process industries are under constant pressure to improve performance.  This is driving demand for advanced process control and optimization solutions, which are becoming “must haves” in an increasingly competitive industry landscape.

Advanced Process Control and Online Optimization Strategic Issues

Advanced Process Control (APC) and Online Optimization Market Trends

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Advanced Process Control and Online Optimization market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning play a role in improving model calibration and accuracy.  “Seed models” from process engineering simulation and other planning data models are used as inputs with years of historical data to produce better APC models used in close loop or as inputs to the model calibration and update process.  AI and machine learning also help to address process applications with non-linearity in chemicals and polymers industry.

Advanced process control and online optimization demand will increase by the need for production optimization.  In the downstream refining and chemicals market, planning and scheduling SME’s are pushing for more stable operations in an effort to close the gap between “plan versus actual.”  Dynamic real-time optimization coordinates multiple units in closed loop by automatically adjusting APC to more closely coordinate plant operations.
