The United States government closely monitors the industrial controls systems. Many of the essential services are linked and controlled by computers so if the cyber network is not secure there might be serious problems in the country. The usage of industrial control systems has been increasing in the last few years and is expected to grow more in the years to come. The technology has become very advanced in this 21st century. Automation and computers are being increasingly used to monitor various industries. Industrial Control Systems helps these industries to be safe and protected from various problems. This report talks about the global demand and forecast of the industrial control systems market. ï¿½ The Industrial Control Systems market protects industries like electric, water, transportation, oil and gas, chemical, food and beverage, automotive etc. from threats like Stuxnet, Duqu and Flame. They include Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA), Distributed Control Systems (DCS) and other types of control systems like Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). SCADA is used to control assets which are geographically dispersed where centralized data control and acquisition is critical to system operations. DCS is used to control industrial processes like oil refineries, water and wastewater treatment, electric power generation and automobile and chemical production. PLC is used to control industrial equipment and processes. Various governments and companies around the world are using this system to protect their infrastructure from various threats from attackers, foreign intelligence, terrorists, spammers etc. from getting control or altering the infrastructure in any way.
