Global Alarm Management System Market: Introduction
Nowadays, alarm overload has become a common issue in most manufacturing plants. The reason behind this overload is formerly integrated independent systems for effective operations with fewer operators. Thus, each operator has to deal with more alarms by monitoring a wider area. Alarm management systems help customers by rationalizing these alarms in manufacturing plants. Alarm management systems help to overcome the situation of inaccurate alarms, disabled alarms and alarm floods. Hence, alarm management systems help to increase situation awareness, which further positively impacts plant production and safety.

Alarm management systems are generally used for grouping, classifying alerts, prioritizing and enabling event notifications used in SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition). Alarm management systems function in a similar manner in other applications as well, such as in medical care and IT. Alarm management systems reduce fatigue and improve focus and readability for the individuals monitoring SCADA. In complex industrial and power generation systems that use SCADA, alarm management systems reduce the use of alarms for events. These systems also prioritize events and alarms and then route them towards those in need of a response.
Global Alarm Management System Market: Dynamics
Alarm management systems reduce alarm flooding through near real time alerts, which is one of the major factors driving the growth of the market during. That apart, these systems help to keep processes safe and profitable through a DCS (Distributed Control System) which maintains and creates a master alarm database. Thus, this factor will also propel the growth of the alarm management system market over the projected period. Furthermore, these systems improve decision support, operator effectiveness and situation awareness. This is another factor that will also contribute towards the growth of the alarm management system market during the forecast period. Increasing need to conform with current industry standards and best practices, such as EEMUA 191, ISA 18.2 and IEC 62682, will also create demand space for alarm management systems during the forecast period. However, some implementation and technical challenges, such as configuration issues, redefining KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and alarm philosophy development, are expected to restrain the growth of the alarm management system market during the forecast period. Some other factors, such as implementation of dynamic alarming, need to keep alarm rationalization up to date, etc. are also likely to hinder the growth of the alarm management system market during the forecast period.
