Driven by India’s economic growth, the demand for a wide range of industrial goods, such as automo-tive, consumer durables, food and beverage, drugs and pharmaceuticals, and others, is on the increase.The mismatch between supply and demand provides the impetus for greenfield projects to come up alongside projects associated with plant upgrades and expansions.This provides the right framework for the growth of the automation market, which in turn spurs the expansion of the system integrators’ (SI) business.
Manufacturing companies in India are increasingly turning to system integrators to implement automation projects and seamlessly integrate disparate systems. System integrators technically bridge the gap between end users and automation suppliers. Often, a good automation system implementation involves integration of subsystems from various suppliers, and SIs work as implementation partners. From an end user perspective, real-time performance management, which involves collaboration among automation systems and enterprise solutions, is important. Therefore, end users turn to SIs, having the necessary skill-set, to integrate various technology solutions. Resulting from these developments, India has emerged as the home of good SI firms.
According to ARC Advisory Group’s (www.arcweb.com) research, the country has around 250 system integrator firms whose revenues would exceed $180 million by 2015. ARC’s latest study, “Service Capabilities and Profiles of System Integrators in India,” provides an in-depth analysis of the system integrator companies and their businesses in India. In addition to market analysis and forecasts, the study also covers details relating to the skill-set and do-main knowledge possessed by SIs, the industries they serve, and the human resources they have. Additionally, the report highlights the factors that influence the system integrator’s market in India and its dynamics.
