The Process Instrumentation & Control (PIC) sector represents companies that manufacture or supply instrumentation and/or control to the process and energy supply industries. The focus is on areas of instrumentation, analytics and control technology.

Within the PIC sector GAMBICA offers its members an arena for the exchange of sector-specific opinions and experiences e.g. Industry 4.0, future skill shortages, standards and legislation, environmental issues as well as resource efficiency. Activities within the sector are steered by senior leadership figures from the Process Instrumentation & Control industry in the UK via the Process Instrumentation & Control Council (PICC). This group is also the primary influence inputting into GAMBICA's unique PIC sector statistics collection, MACIES Measurement and Control Information Exchange System, which arms participants with a clear and detailed picture of the current state of the market and areas of future potential and market development.

GAMBICA's PIC sector product-related technical working groups focus on discussing of the impacts of technological trends, international standardisation and regulatory activities on products within group scope. These working groups include the Flammable Atmospheres Group (FLAG) and Process Measurement, Control & Systems Group (PMCSG). The expertise of these technical groups allows GAMBICA to effectively influence legislation and standards to support the competitiveness of its members.
