According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market is accounted for $4.52 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $7.36 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Human machine interface (HMI) is referred to an automation that serve a connection between the operator and controller in an automated structure. Human machine interface (HMI) is used to optimize a process, by centralizing and digitizing, for the user, where the operators can see important pieces of information in different forms of graphs, chatbots, or digital assistance.
Demand for ease in machine communications
Increasing demand for ease in machine communications along with growing demand for high processing power and huge storage space to encourage the human machine interface market adoption. Features such as alarm warnings, safe messaging along with improved internal communications is expected to provide advantage to a facility in terms of operations, security and production. HMI is anticipated to reduce the operation costs by substituting various push buttons, indicator lights, selectors along with lowering the requirement of additional display panels and cables. In addition to these features, high resolution of HMI system provides a clear-sighted view of the manufacturing operations, enabling the operator to control the facility centrally. Moreover, with the implementation of the system, facility managers have the ease of testing devices using flexible HMI without a single equipment, thus lowering the startup time and improving overall productivity.
Lack of standardization
For most end-users, it is common to have packaging lines with multiple HMIs, each with different levels of complexity and interactions. This lack of standardization can even exist across machines of a single type or brand, particularly if those machines are purchased at different times. Lack of standardization, high cost associated with the installation along with the safety and security issues is anticipated to curb the human machine interface market growth.
Increasing demand for high resolution displays for analyzing the industrial process efficiently along with the technological advancements in the computing processors is expected to offer growth opportunities. Technological advancements in the development of innovative display panels also provide opportunities for the growth of the market. For instance, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) installed ABB's enterprise wide supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) for efficient real-time monitoring of all its production and drilling facilities spread across India and in Arabian Sea.
Lack of skilled professionals
Lack of skilled professionals and insufficient awareness among management level individuals may present a challenge to the industry participants. For successful functioning, the technology necessitates a skilled team. Any organization's activities are hampered by a lack of skilled workers or the insufficiency of existing employees.
The embedded segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The embedded HMI solutions segment is expected to dominate the human machine interface market during the forecast period as it offers multiple benefits. Embedded HMIs are combined with powerful hardware and software platforms to use device capabilities to their fullest extent. A connected embedded platform is a part of an intelligent system. It is connected to a network that enables easy communication between two machines and provides easy access to the operator.
The software segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Human machine interface software is used for performing monitoring functions, such as alarms, control functions, and printing management reports. The programming software used here is known as proprietary software, wherein the software is provided by the manufacturer for quick developments. The ability of HMI software to offer flexibility and reliability and to enhance the efficiency of production processes is expected to drive the demand for HMI software during the forecast period.
Region with largest share:
Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share owing to the increase in disposable income and an increase in population. In this region, China and Japan are considered to be the manufacturing hubs of the pieces of equipment required for the human interface machine. Also, in India, manufacturing has emerged as one of the high-growth sectors. Rapid technological advancements in HMI solutions and extensive R&D activities by the regional industry participants are expected to create opportunities for the HMI market in the region. With various industries shifting their manufacturing bases in the region to capitalize on the availability of skilled and relatively cheap labor, Asia Pacific has transformed into a major manufacturing hub. The process and discrete manufacturing industries present in the region are progressively adopting automated technologies, which is one of the major factors driving the growth of the human machine interface market in the region.
Region with highest CAGR:
North America is projected to have the highest CAGR due to the early adoption of technologies in the region. Many heavy industry companies are accelerating their digital transformation journeys due to recent global events, particularly in fields such as engineering, mining, oil & gas, and manufacturing. Other factors such as the growing demand for smart automation solutions, advancements in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology, and the surging need to monitor and increase the efficiency of manufacturing units are also significantly contributing to the growth of the North American market.
