Rapid, diversified industrialisation and energy infrastructure growth have galvanised the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) process transmitters market. Process transmitters already have a significant installed base in the region, since they are an integral part of industrial processes. Hence, the annual replacement demand due to the maintenance and overhaul cycles of various plants across industries further contributes to the market’s growth.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (industrialautomation.frost.com), Analysis of the GCC Process Transmitters Market, finds that the market earned revenues of over USD 300.0 million in 2011 and estimates this to cross USD 400.0 million in 2016.
The increased focus on selling value-added products, rather than crude oil and natural gas, is expected to spell a period of significant growth for downstream industries – refining and petrochemicals across the GCC. This will encourage the adoption of process transmitters. The upgrade of existing plants with modern automation systems and increased safety requirements is also expected to create significant opportunities, such as, the replacement of switches and gauges with process transmitters.
"With over 35 GW of power capacity addition expected, the power and desalination industry is expected to be a major growth driver over the forecast period," said Frost & Sullivan Analyst for Industrial Automation & Process Control Practice. "The migration towards better level and flow technologies will further boost overall market growth."
Saudi Arabia is anticipated to continue being the leading process transmitter market in the GCC, as it diversifies its industries to reduce dependence on oil and gas revenues and increases employment opportunities for a burgeoning population. In Qatar, significant demand will stem from power and infrastructure projects in the near-term.
However, the success of international contractors has hampered the prospects of domestic equipment suppliers. Orders for projects are placed outside the GCC, reducing the overall opportunities available to suppliers within the region.
However, it is imperative, in the interest of long-term strategic benefits, to have a strong local presence. "End users prefer locally established services and product companies," noted Frost & Sullivan Analyst. "Establishing a regional base will facilitate strategic partnerships, preferential procurement contracts, and long-term service agreements that can fulfill strategic goals."
Countries, especially Saudi Arabia and Qatar, encourage local presence and product indigenisation, but still need to lay emphasis on local procurement by Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC)contractors to encourage localisation efforts of suppliers.
