At a glance:

Virtual PLCs and soft PLCs describe the emerging class of PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) in which the control hardware and software are partially/completely decoupled from each other. This involves the migration of the sensing and manipulating function at level 1 of the automation pyramid to hardware in the respective upper and lower levels.

This report aims to provide the reader with a holistic view of the virtual PLC and soft PLC market starting with definitions and then deep diving into key chapters covering technological overview, market size and outlook, competitive landscape, and customer adoption.
