The global intelligent remote terminal unit market size reached US$ 3.11 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 4.44 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% during 2023-2028. Significant rise in electricity consumption, rapid industrialization, and the growing demand for freshwater supplies represent some of the key factors driving the market.
An intelligent remote terminal unit (iRTU) is a microprocessor-based electronic equipment used for remote monitoring of various devices and systems for automation via the internet. It monitors both the digital and analog field parameters and transmits data to a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) master station. It runs setup software to connect data input streams to output streams, troubleshoot installation problems, and define communication protocols. It is widely employed in several processes, including petrochemical (oil) and refineries and nuclear power, chemical, sewage treatment and water treatment plants. Besides this, iRTU is used in agriculture, quality control, food processing, automobile manufacturing, and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. At present, iRTU providers are focusing on developing more efficient solutions to attract more customers and maximize revenue.
Intelligent Remote Terminal Unit Market Trends:
Presently, a considerable increase in electricity consumption on account of the growing population and industrialization represents one of the key factors positively influencing the market. The development of power infrastructure to prevent frequent power outage problems is also driving the usage of iRTUs to improve the efficiency of the transmission and distribution network. In addition, the increasing adoption of remote monitoring (RPM) systems by various industries, especially asset-intensive industries, is creating a positive market outlook. These industries are facing the difficulty of achieving high operating efficiency due to power fluctuations that damage the functioning of important equipment, resulting in significant revenue loss. Furthermore, the growing demand for freshwater supplies in urban areas and the rising water pollution level are other factors catalyzing the demand for iRTUs worldwide. Water utilities are continuously investing in innovative technologies and utilizing SCADA systems to enhance water infrastructure monitoring capabilities and monitor important assets of water treatment plants. Moreover, the shifting consumer preferences towards electric vehicles (EVs) to minimize harmful emissions and support environmental health, along with the integration of renewable energy, is creating a massive load on existing power transmission and distribution assets. Consequently, there is an increase in the need for converting conventional grids to smart grids. Furthermore, the rising number of smart grid projects across numerous countries is expected to drive the demand for SCADA systems and, in turn, propel the market growth.
