According to the report, global Human Machine Interface Market was valued at around USD 3.43 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach approximately USD 5.70 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 8.80% between 2017 and 2022.
Human machine interface (HMI) is software for information exchange between users and electromechanical systems. Some of the examples of HMI are rubber keypad, touch screen, membrane switches, interface software, etc. Due to growth in factory automation, technological needs, Smartphone, tablets and computer users, the demand for human machine interface is increasing. The major factors are driving the growth of HMI market is growing automation in manufacturing industries. Integration of analytics software with products will be expected to improve productivity and quality thereby spurring demand. However, high cost associated with installation is anticipated to pose the demand of HMI market. Nonetheless, continuous updating and upgrade of computer processors are also estimated to substitute traditional systems which will increase product demand. Advancement in broadband access technology is also expected to offer significant growth in coming years.
Human interface market is segmented by component, configuration type, application, and region. On the basis of the component, the market is segmented into hardware and software. By configuration type, the market is divided into stand-alone HMI and embedded HMI. Due to increasing adoption of the embedded HMI solutions in process industry such as in chemical and pharmaceuticals industries is impelling the growth of hardware segment. Embedded platforms enable easy communication between two machines and provide easy access to operators, and thus help operators in process industries to gain more process visibility. Increasing demand of mobile HMI is driving the growth of the advanced panel-based human machine interface market.
