About Control Engineering Asia
Driven by increasing industrialisation, huge and necessary investments in infrastructure, and an emerging middle class creating new demands for all manner of consumer goods, the centre of gravity of the automation industry is markedly shifting east – with Asia increasingly becoming the leading market for the devices, systems, and services that are helping to boost industrial performance in the region.
For instance, Asia is already the biggest consumer of high power AC drives (42 percent market share); and with energy consumption set to rise dramatically, it will continue to be the leading growth engine for this segment over the next decade as manufacturers address initiatives for energy cost savings and reduced consumption. And by 2016, Asia will become the largest market for programmable logic controllers (PLCs), with analysts ARC Advisory Group noting that long term indicators are pointing “nowhere but up” for this PLC adoption in this region.
In this promising environment, Control Engineering Asia is proud to be leading information source – in print and increasingly online – that readers in the dynamic markets of Asia look to in order to stay track of and tuned into the rapid developments in the business and technology of industrial automation. Taking a comprehensive approach, Control Engineering Asia’s coverage spans both factory and process automation and encompasses technologies throughout the plant hierarchy, including industrial software, networks, control systems, instruments, drives, motors… and much more.
With 2014 marking its ninth continuous year of publication, Control Engineering Asia is all set to steer the agenda again this year with features that will explore, analyse and reveal key technologies and trends, such as Industry 4.0, robotics, process safety, control systems migration, product lifecycle management, among others. In addition, the all-important Asian angle continues to be delivered through industry news, executive interviews, case studies, and latest products that target the regional market.
In this increasingly digital age, Control Engineering Asia is still the only automation publication in the region with a strong online offering (www.ceasiamag.com). News is updated daily, and there is a fully searchable archive as well as knowledge centers, technology channels and videos. And a weekly e-newsletter provides breaking news and a neat snapshot of the week’s events for busy executives and engineers.
Globally recognised leaders such as ABB, Emerson Process Management, Honeywell, Mitsubishi Electric, Rockwell Automation and Siemens have long chosen to partner with Control Engineering Asia in order to build and boost their market presence and ensure the latest technology offerings are communicated effectively to the large pool of subscribers that form a significant prospective customer base.
And given the positive industry backdrop, now is the perfect time for automation vendors to showcase their capabilities, reach out further and take advantage of the myriad opportunities the publication offers to get closer to the Asian market.
Because when it is time to deliver excellence, it is time for Control Engineering Asia.
