The Global OPC Server Market was valued at USD 13.20 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 21.12 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% during 2021-2030. OPC is a widely used industrial communication protocol that allows data to be exchanged freely between devices and control software from different vendors. An OPC server may send data from PLCs on the factory floor, RTUs in the field, HMI stations, and software applications on desktop PCs. The OPC server is a program that converts a PLC's hardware communication protocol to the OPC protocol. A program that links to hardware, such as a graphical user interface, is known as OPC client software (GUI). As a result of the OPC server, technology suppliers and end-users have been able to collaborate more effectively. OPC server has aided automation companies in developing completely open solutions, giving consumers additional options in their automation applications.
