Global Automation Research LLC is adding a more extensive forecast report, the Product Line Forecast report (PLF report) to its Client Services. The PLF report provides our Clients with market value and forecasted growth for 76 individual product lines.


Process Automation Market Database


The Global Automation Research LLC Process Automation Market Database is composed of 76

 product lines, each product line is segmented by 12 industry segments and 13 geographic regions. This data base was developed in a two year period, 2001 to 2003. Since 2003, the database has been updated annually. Global Automation Research LLC uses multiple sources for updates including in depth analysis of industry spending plans, public results of process automation suppliers, and the 8 to 10 custom projects we complete each year. The database has provided the basis for our various client services and the annual MCAA Industry Forecast.

PLF Report Scope


Recently, several Clients have expressed interest in access to basic market data, providing them with annual updates of market information used in their annual planning endeavors. So, through PLF program we are providing access to market forecasts for 75 process automation product lines for the U.S. and Canada Market. (See PLF Product Scope.) The report provides the prior year and current (base) year market size estimate and a five-year forecast. Each product line market size estimate and forecast is further segmented by 12 process industry segments. (See Industry Coverage.)




The report is an Excel spreadsheet (see Demo here) containing a database of market information for client-selected product lines and/or groups. A separate Demo PLF Report has been prepared that shows the entirety of a report content. Global Automation Research LLC will offer a 40 minute webinar option for clients who wish an in-person review of the report data with a principal analyst of Global Automation Research LLC.
