A Major Automation Area

Both efficiency and safety benefit from automation, so it is not surprising that the global chemical industry is one of the largest automation markets, at around $6 billion.

India, China, the Middle East, and the Commonwealth of Independent States and Baltics (CISB) favor greenfield build-up. At the same time, large-scale retrofits and consolidation continue in the mature markets of North America and Europe.

Whether greenfield or brownfield, the time required for equipment build/re-build brings added challenges. Because fabrication and commissioning of large projects spread over several years, risk mitigation is imperative. Emerson brings both project expertise and industry standards to the integration of devices and instrumentation, well aware that the bottom line is how a given process runs.
