Market Overview

The safety instrumented systems market was valued at USD 3.1 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 6.9 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 12.5% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026. The adoption of Industry 4.0 is expected to ring technical changes in the safety systems. During July 2018, the International Society of Automation (ISA) announced that it published a new book that covers the entire life-cycle of safety instrumented systems (SIS), including specification, design, analysis, programming, installation, maintenance, and change management.

  • Government regulatory agencies, such as the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as the insurance companies, place the highest criteria for the safety of company personnel, communities, and the environment. Consequently, they require industries to perform a process hazard analysis to determine the measures necessary for maximum safety.
  • In addition, as the process industry moves toward adopting newer safety standards, the need for control systems that can manage changes, such as steam turbines, compressors, and variable speed drives, may become essential to keep profitability up with agile requirements.
  • In countries, like Mexico, where the pipelines are often prone to insurgent attacks and theft, there is a high demand for automated and robust control systems, which support remote operation.

Scope of the Report

Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) are being implemented across the industries, in order to complement their process control systems, to reduce the risk of accidents on the industry floor and in the operation process. There are many ways, in which the safety instrumentation is being deployed. Compliance with international standards, such as IEC 61508 and IEC 61511, which indicate an acceptable quality in design and management of safety controls, across the industries,  drives the implementation of SIS.

Key Market Trends

Food and Beverage Hold the Major Market Share

  • The food and beverage industry is becoming more automated as the population is growing. Other driving factors, which contribute to increased automation is the scarcity of suitable cheap labor, health and safety laws, and advancement in robotics.
  • With the additional factor of increases in regulations, such as FSMA (Food Safety Modernisation Act), which affects everyone doing business with the United States of America via the FSVP (Foreign Supplier Verification Programs), all forms of the food and beverage industry can expect to become more reliant on automation and computer-based systems that manage every part of the process, across the supply chain.
  • The food and beverage industry has a moral and regulatory obligation to safeguard its workers. The dangers vary from the clear and present, such as heavy machinery, toxic chemicals, and slippery surfaces to the slower threats, such as dust inhalation, hearing loss, and repetitive strain injuries.

Asia-Pacific to Witness the Highest Growth

  • Increasing investments in renewable energy production, across countries, such as China and India, as well as increasing FDA investments in China’s strong F&B, pharmaceuticals, and semiconductor industries, to ramp up new production capacities are propelling the demand for safety systems in the region.
  • Furthermore, the industrial production capacity in the region has increased, owing to the continued development of the nations in the region. Comparatively, cheap labor has been a major factor in driving investment in the region and is expected to continue to drive the market.
  • Owing to the abovementioned factors influencing the market space, Asia-Pacific is expected to register the fastest CAGR, over the forecast period.
